This program is designed for Middle School and High School players

  • The schedule runs every Sunday from January 8 to April 9
  • Coaches are chosen for coaching ability, knowledge, and most importantly, positive skills with young players
  • Coaches include college and high school varsity coaches, top area players, men and women, and club coaches
  • The LEAGUE and SKILLS Program alternates sessions of rigorous drills with competition.
  • The League + Skills program is a no-cut program.
  • There is a certified trainer on site for taping/other medical issues.
    We are very serious about our coaches; we have many, and they receive a 1-hour training session before each Sunday's program
