Our Coaching Philosophy Athletics provide opportunities to model & teach sportsmanship, the power of teamwork, fairness, the gratification of hard work & determination, responsibility & accountability, discipline & the long- term benefits of fitness & exercise. We promise to… – show your daughter the respect, mentoring & care that we were shown by our coaches so they may fondly look back at their time on our team. – encourage your daughter to become the best student & athlete she can be, always placing the "student" part before the "athlete". Success in academics is a necessity to be an integral & committed teammate. – keep us together & moving forward as a team by stressing dedication to the team & school. – practice good communication in order to promote trust & fairness among the team, parents & coaching staff. – share our love of soccer & competition with your daughter, set the stage for making great memories that will last a lifetime & promote the importance of "winning with pride & losing with dignity".
We are the Lady Wolves!!! EXPECTATIONS: We are a TEAM so we should act, practice & play like one!
