We encourage our student-athletes to begin in their freshman or sophomore year of high school to achieve collegiate goals. Student-athletes sign a personal commitment contract of goals we help to establish. Yes, you’ll swing it really nicely, but you will also be able to handle the heat of battle during tournament.
