The Weekly GRIND!

Va Grind Elite Team Updates (Week of May 2)

Message from Coach Reed

Hi Grind Parents,

The boys fought hard this past weekend and are now 2016 VA State AAU Championships Runner-Ups! This is a big accomplishment for us as we continue our journey to become a highly competitive elite caliber team. We are impressed with the effort and how well they played together as a team. As always, there are areas for improvement for players and coaches that we will work on in practice. I was impressed with the focus and intensity players brought to practice last night. It is evident that they are hungry to get better!

We are back at it again this weekend with a 1-day tournament in Front, Royal, VA. See information below for details.

Let's go GRIND!
