Coach Moral has a no-cut policy with the same level of expectations for all in the team. Competitive interscholastic opportunities provide the venue for all the athletes to display their talent. The coach’s philosophy is that all can learn the game and from there it is elevated to the athlete’s desired goal; the coach will meet the athlete at baseline and grow her game together. All work happens in a challenging, yet fun atmosphere that allows for growth and development and team unity.
