Keys to the season: To me, keys to the season will be staying game ready at all times both physically and mentally. Games will get cancelled or postponed here and there due to COVID but we need to be able to stay focused throughout.

       

Things your team was doing during the COVID-19 pause of winter sports: As a team we are taking it day by day. When we aren’t able to practice all of the kids have playbooks and film to watch to help them stay focused and up to speed on everything we are doing.
