NON-COMPETITIVE TEAM LEVELS:

Pre-team (Ages 4-6)

Pre-Team is simply the stepping-stone between the recreational class program and the competitive team program. It is a place for talented students who wish to explore the avenue to the competitive team world. It is a place to "get your feet wet" without incurring some of the obligations associated with being a member of our Team. There are separate Pre-Teams for both boys and girls.

Hot Shots (Ages 6-8)
