Our Coaching Philosophy
- Academics always come first.

- Practice Like it’s a Real Game.
- At the end of the day, remember it’s only a game!
- Learn to make your own decisions, good or bad.
- There is No I in Team: You are a collection of individuals, and that to be successful you have to be driven by a common goal. Our goal is to make the program the best it can be. What’s Yours?
