Q.) Can we invite friends that do not know about the program?
If their is still an open spot, they would need to meet their coach and see if they are a good fit. We do accept players year round with the hopes to build a large player pool to feed into the age group next year. Developing our own players is the key to having a successful program.

The U8 ADP + trains 3 days a week for 1 hour 15 minutes and the U6 & U7 ADP + trains twice a week for 1 hour at our facility in Cypress Park.
