Our TEAMS APPROACH
Our program is different because our members run it…
From designing their own t-shirts to raising the money to pay the bills, our members learn to be self sufficient. Our coaches' goals are to attend a tournament and let the team members’ expertise and confidence shine.
Members are given the tools and techniques they need leading up to the competition. They practice making independent decisions throughout the season. This faith in their abilities allows the members to rise to the challenge and take pride in their performances.
