Coaching Philosophy

"We strive to push players out of their "Comfort Zone". Instill a sense of confidence in challenging scenarios."

  • We expose the players to a faster, more competitive game against talented and driven opponents. 
  • ​Geared towards proper mechanics, but also creativity in gameplay
  • In practice and training we focus on max rep drills, skill/technique breakdowns, and decision making opportunities in game play scenarios.
  • Our players are not role players, they are leaders.
  • In a game setting this translates to a more confident, skilled, responsible player. 
  • Positive motivation with development = Fun
