Progression of the State Teams

 

The development of State Team program over these last 5 years has been remarkable in every way. Coach Dan Catzere credits the student athletes on their dedication to get better and their willingness to believe in the program. "We really try to just provide a healthy platform for all our kids. We pride ourselves on relentless training, useful information and a will to compete vs the best in the country. When you mix all those things together with skilled individuals it makes a pretty special program. It's been a great journey so far but in our eyes we're just getting started."

2016 and 2017 State Team Year

 

This year looks to be the best year ever and we are TRUEly excited to get going here this fall. This year We will be focusing more on training in off seasons. We will have practices twice a week in both Grand Rapids and the East Side on Tuesday's and Thursday's while still having a Saturday practice in Lansing, MI. Our thought process is to treat Tuesday's and Thursday's as individual skill development while Saturday's are more focused on team drills and concepts. This will run from Oct till March. 

Our summer looks to be even better as well! Our 2018's, 2019's, 2020's and 2021's will all be heading out east together for the first two events. We will treat this like last year where we will head out to a tournament, have a training camp in between then go to another tournament. So much was accomplished and seen in that week it is a no brainer to do it again.  After that our 2021 team will compete at Cherry bomb while our three oldest teams will attend two more events out east in July. We feel like adding a 4th tournament for the HS guys will help us in being noticed and by then we will be playing confident till the end of summer.
