It’s hard to believe that another season is officially wrapped. We are extremely proud of how hard our athletes and coaches worked to make the 2017-18 season an amazing one. Thank you as well to all of our families and supporters for standing behind our club and our athletes–we couldn’t do this without you!

 

Above all, we pride ourselves on building well-rounded athletes who are great teammates, hard workers and confident young people. Congratulations to each of our athletes for building your toolbox of skills that will serve you for life: time management, commitment, goal setting, communication and sportsmanship.
