TRAVEL TEAMS:
This is a highly competitive team playing against the very best that other organizations have to offer. Selection to the team does not automatically mean equal playing time. We will do our best to ensure that everyone gets to play, but we are participating in these tournaments with the expectations of winning. Playing time will be earned through hard work and dedication to the team. Player development and improvement will be the cornerstone of these teams, but this can only be achieved with the highest level of commitment from the players.
