A BIG THANK YOU to all the parents who get their athletes to training week in and week out, I know from experience that it’s a big task.  Last but not least, I want to thank every coach and staff member  for their hard work and dedication this past winter.  Without your efforts, this program would not be what it is…one of the best in the East!
We are already planning for a great season next year so have a great summer and we will see you in the fall.
