 Coaches Needed!
Athletes cannot train without qualified coaches. We currently need coaches in all sports.

The local program always needs dedicated volunteers. Contact us today to learn about serving on committees, coordinating events, or just coming out for local competition! We are currently seeking committee members.


Congratulations to our athletes, and many thanks to all parents, chaperones, and coaches! We had a wonderful trip to Charlotte March 12 for the State Tournament. Our athletes brought home medals and memories in Basketball, Basketball Skills, and Cheerleading. Well done!
