State Team Jr's Detroit

State Team Jr's Detroit

We are happy to announce that True Michigan will now be running travel teams in Detroit! We have seen great success with our State Teams and Grand Rapids teams and now it's time to get the Detroit rolling. We will be offering State Teams Jr's teams in the graduation years of 2022 & 2023. These will be feeding our state teams as they enter their 8th grade year. If you would like to play for our 8th grade and older teams, you will be trying out for our state teams.

We train more than any other program. We will be having practice twice per week from the fall through the winter, as well as the summer. Expect 70+ hours of training. This is what separates us from other programs. Great coaching with a ton of reps and touches!!!

We pride our teams on fundamentals, development and training at the highest level possible. We are very much so looking forward to working with new players and parents! Please see below for even more information on the program!
