Meet Our Coaches & Directors

Our coaches are the cornerstone of our program and from top to bottom, we feel our coaching staff is second to none when compared to any club in our area.  Most of our top-level coaches have coached in our community for multiple years and consistently produce winning teams both during club season and area school seasons.  We have two coaches that are currently coaching at the college level as well as several coaches currently leading winning varsity programs in our area.  Most of them have experience coaching in our local schools and therefore are familiar with the talented athletes in our area, and many are also either current or former collegiate level players themselves.  While each coach has their own distinct style, we will practice consistent training from beginners to elite level players.  We believe in our staff and the quality you can expect in each age group and every level.  Read the bios below to learn more about your coaches.
