The idea is to allow our players to continue to work on their game in an organized fashion during the off-season.   Attendance is NOT mandatory but we should expect the players who register to attend at least half of the sessions.    Also, these will be high intensity training sessions.  Players of all skill levels are welcome, but all players are expected to WORK HARD and will NOT have to be asked give a good effort.   We will drill at a high intensity level for 45-60 minutes and allow for games the balance of the session.   The practice plans will be flexible to meet the needs of those who attend each night.
