From the first day of practice, coaches work with students to teach them the fundamentals and good sportsmanship. The overall aim of the program is for each student to learn and to have fun. To this end, no emphasis is placed on scores or winning/losing, but rather on the experience of wholesome competition and the development of healthy minds and bodies.
