Preseason Information

Our collective goal is to provide positive and meaningful experiences for all students who participate in our program. There is no better place to learn life lessons than on an athletic field, court, or course. Teamwork, leadership, emotional control, confidence and self esteem, handling adversity, and commitment are just a few of the many benefits that participation on a team can help instill. We want to challenge students to take risks and compete outside their comfort zone. We hope to positively place student athletes allowing for maximum growth within a season. All students are encouraged to try a sport this year; regardless of experience, there is a place for everyone in our program. Take a risk, take a chance – try something new!

We are looking forward to a great year. Our doors are always open; please do not hesitate to reach out.
