Additional Thoughts/Notes:

Each child needs to be multi-versatile in all areas on the floor. The kids they will face will be bigger, faster and stronger than any kids they will face in at their current residence. It’s all about getting them prepared to play at the next level.

Additional Thoughts/Notes:

So far this season we are 3-1 after the AGame Super Shootout where we lost in the semifinals to the eventual champion by 5 points without our full team. Our team is led by Potomac Falls High School Forward Landon Hawes who last year and so this season is averaging a double-double with 20 points and 10 rebounds per game. Sharpshooting Guard Max Mancuso from Dominion High School looks to build off a solid spring last year and continue his double figure scoring average. Our Center Holden Phillips from Briar Woods High School is one of the best defenders in the area and can change the complexion of a game through his shot blocking and rebounding. We emphasize defense, hustle, and energy. The core of this team has been together for only two years and we continue to grow together as a squad.
