First Week of the Season

We had an excellent week of practice this week through the cold and wet ground. The boys and girls brought a lot of energy and excitement to the pitch and took on the challenge of preparing for the upcoming season seriously.

The girls had 16 players at practice on Thursday which is the most girls we have every had. Great job ladies - keep up the good work and keep bringing your friends to practice. Keep working hard and #RiseUP to the challenges this season.

The boys had many new players as well and the new players have fit right in. This is the best first week of practice we have ever had. The boys brought great effort, intensity and a starting to build their brotherhood for this season.
