Our Program
 

Since our inception in 2011, we are proud to consistently grow our enrollments through clinics, spring skills and drills, and the fall travel season. Practices include ball control, spacing & positioning, passing, receiving, elimination skills, channeling, defensive tactics, scoring drills, and conditioning. We focus on all aspects of the sport which also includes learning the rules of the game in scrimmage play either through games with other youth associations or through intramural play. We also focus on sportsmanship and learning how to be a good teammate.
