BOYS – Week of October 5

And this week, it would be great to have help at a short clinic Friday, October 9, from 3:30-4:30 PM at Schofield MS.

We have already booked flights for the coaches to Florida. There are low cost direct flights available from both Spirit Airlines and Jet Blue. Has anyone else found other suggestions? Please share.

Our next Flash Store will be VVC apparel!


Week ahead (Sept 28 – Oct 2)

It was a beautiful moon last night!


And, it was a spectacular first week of the regular season last week too. We have loads of work to do and we were thrilled to have so many athletes showing up to improve incrementally. It is going to be a great season!

Coaching Clinic

Thank you to Coach Beata (Youth Program) for opening Bob Miller Middle School. And, thank you to Coach and Mrs. Varela for working so hard to make sure we had all the logistics handled for the day. And thank you too to our generous supporters that contributed so we were able to offer scholarships for our coaches to attend the Gold Medal Squared clinic. It was a long day but the information provides a great springboard for more conversation and growth. Thank you to clinicians Tom Melton and Luka Slabe! Our next clinic will be early December 2015.


We are about 99% registered! Please get the registration completed ASAP so we can order uniforms. Our first event is October 24 and it is already likely we will not have uniforms for the first weekend. 

Club Harvest Party

Thank you to the Taylor Family for opening their home Friday, October 16. We will have a Harvest Party night! Dinner will be provided and it will be a wonderful night for our athletes to socialize and continue building our family! We will hand out more information this week at practices. Please mark your calendars.
