Camaraderie is evident when a team has worked hard to achieve their goals.

Teamwork is a big part of getting the job done.

Skills are developed in an age appropriate manner in keeping with the Long Term Athlete Development Program

As athletes mature, leadership opportunities are provided where older athletes serve as role models to those in the younger age groups.

Practice builds character - hard work pays off!
