Thank You to All Parents and Players. Our Inaugural Season Was a Success!

End of Season Club Picnic

Our very first season together was marked by a whole lotta ups and our ability to overcome downs when they came our way! Our coaches were blessed with a group of 24 amazing young women who grew their confidence and progressed in their skills throughout the season.  We couldn’t have asked for a better, more supportive group of parents who were always there to cheer us on. Thanks to everyone who made this happen, and we look forward to growing together as a club in the future!
