Coach’s comment:

” The first step is to bring consistency to the girls’ program. The plan for this season is to improve our overall level of play. The focus will be on technical and tactical soccer, with the girls always being encouraged to play fast-paced flowing soccer. I believe that with this, we will become an attractive side to watch and a hard side to beat. We have a chance to surprise some teams and take staps in the right direction towards a playoff bid and then eventually a state title.” — Coach Kiaran McCormack.
