Work rate, tactical discipline, technical ability, and team chemistry are all primary aspects to a successful team.  With these aspects in mind, we work to create a fun but demanding environment that pushes player/team development. From a coaching standpoint, transparency is key to player and team progression.  More pointedly, clarity with the “why we do what we do” is vital to our team’s success and athletes’ comfort level on the field. As a staff, we have found consistent success with this model, and plan to continue to be one of the dominant teams in the league.
