The philosophy behind the youth sports program is to provide an atmosphere that focuses on fun, opportunity, sportsmanship, and instruction. Sports can play a positive role in our children’s development, fostering physical skills, and emotional maturity. Children should have a place where they can have fun participating in organized activities in a healthy, safe environment. We strive to provide quality instruction in the fundamentals of the sport while emphasizing fun and sportsmanship over winning. By creating a positive experience for the children we hope to encourage a lifetime of involvement. You can help. We need the cooperation and assistance of parents and coaches to promote and demonstrate these values.
