Our mission is to provide an opportunity for the players to participate in an organized and competitive sport of football, basketball and lacrosse. We will develop each player to engage at a competitive level. We believe in giving the players a firm foundation in the many individual and team skills required to be a strong player. We are collectively committed to developing the character and skills for players of all levels by teaching the rules of the sport, developing self-esteem, and teaching respect for fellow players, officials, and traditions of the game. We strive to create an environment that is safe, organized and fun.
