The goal of the evaluation is to help determine each athletes strengths and areas that need improvement.
Within 1 week after the evaluation we will send you suggestions for training based on your acceptance into our program.
We are looking for the right players and families NOT necessarily the most talented players. Talent helps but is NOT our # 1 requirement.
Why? We firmly believe it doesn't matter where you start it only matters where you finish. Nobody cares about how good you are today. It's all about improvine 1%!
We are looking for players...
Who have a passion for the game & a passion to improve
Who have the determination to work hard to improve
Players who are open minded and willing to learn
We are looking for parents...
Who are supportive but not intrusive
Parents who have the big picture in mind NOT looking for a quick fix, or an instant solution.
Players who will spend time at home in bettween sessions about getting better.
