A Message from Coach Mel.....

Sports are so much of our lives today and teach us life lessons on how to share and be better teammates and people. For the players who have played or will play for me in the future we have shared the Hard Hat book and stories on how to be a better teammate.

Whether a current Player / Alumni or Coach it is our time to be that "Better Teammate and Person" and help each other through this historic event.

I have read many books from John Gordon including the Hard Hat and Energy Bus and believe in the Power of Positivity. The link below was shared to me and I want to share with you.

Please take a moment to visit and share the link.
