TIERS

WE OFFER 5 TIERS-

LEVEL 1

LEVEL 2

LEVEL 3

LEVEL 4

LEVEL 5

THE TIERS DO NOT A CONSTANT STANDARD. THE STANDARDS ARE FLUID AND ARE BASED ON THE GROU OF PLAYERS IN THAT PARTICULAR SEASON. BUT THE PRIMARY FACTORS ARE AGE & SKILL LEVEL.

EACH TIER HAS A CURRICULUM TO FOLLOW. THE CURRICULUM IS BASED ON THE GROUP OF PLAYERS - THEIR STRENGTHS, THEIR WEAKNESSES AND THEIR NEEDS.

EACH TIER HAS ITS OWN TECHNICAL & TACTICAL GOALS.

PLAYERS ARE ALWAYS ELIGIBLE TO SWING OR BE PULLED UP AT ANY POINT IN TIME.

THOSE DECISIONS ARE AT THE DISCRETION OF THE COACHES.

IT IS EASIER TO PULL A PLAYER UP THAN IT IS TO MOVE THEM DOWN.
