Though our coaches may not be biological mothers and fathers of our club athletes, all athletes are like our coaches children. We strive to foster an environment of trust, respect, discipline, and accountability that is equal to that of a family. Over the years we have developed life-long relationships with many athletes we have coached and their families. We’ve traveled across the country to watch them compete at the collegiate level. We’ve been to their weddings. We’ve celebrated and mourned with them. We look forward to the new experiences we’ll have with each of our individual athletes both former, current, and yet to come.
