Team size: 12
Age Range: 5 – 8
Category: SMALL MINI LEVEL 1
Coaches: Marie and Nardos
For the current season, this team has had a placement at every level. Though they really liked when they placed first! In our year together each of our athletes has had personal success and growth thus prepared to move forward in age groups or levels.
To coach a team this young is a fine balance because we never want to place focus on winnings and placements, but to do better than we did each time before the present. However, we are a competitive team and the goal is to bring home a win. Merging both of these beliefs is the ultimate feat yet equally gratifying.
Coach Marie’s favorite quote is one of John Wooden’s: “Successs comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming”
The best part of coaching the mini aged kids is simple. They make me smile! They are sweet and funny even though some of them don’t know how funny they really are! But speaking from a coaching perspective- watching their progression in a span of less than a year is the final reward and worth the wait to watch! GO MIST!! – Coach Marie
