WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT GRASSROOTS?

I’ve coached for almost 9 years and I just cannot believe how much I love the environment here. The whole staff is active and energetic. The focus is on the kids being safe and having FUN while they learn the greatest sport! I also love the concept of “Grassroots” and having a strong, healthy base for these kids to grow into athletes. Katie has truly installed perfect values and core principles for these kids to become the best athletes they can be.
