Mission

Grades 3-6: Instruction is focused on the development of skill and knowledge, safety, and enjoyment of the sport. Equal playing time and equal opportunity is offered to each player in practice and games so each player can experience every aspect of the sport

Grades 7-8: Experience and enjoy the competitive nature of sports by learning to strive for their own personal best while remembering the importance of teamwork and good sportsmanship. At this level we expect all players to be kept motivated and continue to obtain instruction from all coaches, referees/umpires, and others to improve their skill and knowledge of the sport allowing for personal and team advancement. The Middle School Team is meant to prepare the players for High School Sports.
