Why should my son/daughter play in the Junior Program versus playing up in the Premier Program at U10?

It is very important for any young athlete to have a positive experience and have fun playing their sport. Based on our experience, we have found that putting children in situations that they are not ready for, can become a negative experience for the both the player and family. Our Junior Program focuses on developing the fundamental skills to ensure the player’s readiness to play at the next level. Our program also provides the family a great transition from a recreational program to a premier level program.
