Inspiration

Recently, we received this unsolicited email from a former player. Encouragement comes in many forms but always at the right time. Hope you enjoy the share:

“I really just wanted to say thank you; thank you for pushing me to play at such a high caliber of ball, and making me believe that I could do it. The type of ball that I played under your supervision was the most fun I’ve had playing my entire career. You pushed me to run a fast offense, you made me believe that I could do it. You pushed me to stay fit and to hold myself to a level of self-respect that I never would have thought I deserved, and you showed me that it’s okay to be better than what everyone else thinks you can be.

I never thought coaching could play such a key role in someone’s ability to perform, but boy was I wrong.

I hop you light a fire in new players every season that you continue to coach, and that you continue to push people to reach and break the boundaries that other have set for them.” (11/3/14 ~ “TJ, a junior in college”)

We have been so fortunate to work with extraordinary young people from great families. Thank you for the privilege of working for and with you…and thank you to the amazing person that wrote to me.

Youth

MS Clinics

Boys 

Holiday Classic

The schedule has been posted and each team’s progress can be followed via Advance Event Systems online or via an app on your smart phone.

Please note the Royal team will begin play at the Next Level Sports facility. You will find the address here.

We need your help…please and thank you! Due to the schedule, we are asking that any parent that plan to attend consider volunteering to work with our coaches to facilitate meals for the teams. Ideally, each team would have a parent coordinate restaurant selection, order taking and placing, money collection and food delivery (if necessary). Each team will play both an AM and PM pool. Transportation to/from playing sites combined with limited food choices make it very important each team have parental support regarding meals. We appreciate your help. Please communicate directly with your team’s coach if you can help.

Girls

Register

We need for all athletes to complete their online registration so we can begin the process of tournament entry and uniform ordering. Please contact Coach Rios with questions or concerns. 

Beach

Please review the Beach workout calendar and begin attending. Please remember to wear layers for warmth, bring running shoes and bring socks you don’t mind wearing in cold sand.


 

Boys

Practices

Attendance is mandatory. When an issue arises, we expect (at the very least) that each athlete will communicate with his coach via telephone, not text. We cannot achieve our goals and improve without everyone’s attendance. We understand illness. The calendars are posted months in advance to assist with planning. Ours is a consummate team sport and the whole is decidedly dependent on every individual. Coaches will strongly consider attendance with regard to playing time at tournaments. 

Beach

We elected to not make attendance at beach workouts mandatory yet we are investing in the enhancement of our athletes via this new area of programming. We strongly urge that all athletes attend all beach workouts for December and January. We have taken attendance at every session thus far. Coaches will be encouraged to consider attendance at beach workouts when allocating playing time at tournaments. Please remember to wear layers for warmth, bring running shoes and bring socks you don’t mind wearing in cold sand.
