Train to Play for Life

About our Staff

Train to Play for Life began when the parents of a group of players that attended a clinic wanted more training.  It started with a clinic, developed into a team in a league, expanded into higher level training, and grew into running camps and individual training.  Our goal is to help each player make it to the next level and to help players TRAIN TO PLAY FOR LIFE.  We are a faith-based organization and strive to keep morals and values at the core of our business and place emphasis on the importance of human dignity.
