Using sports as a vehicle to teach our children the core values of life...
Become a part of the solution in the community
Local Kids Learn the Value of Giving
Children in the surrounding communities of Kern County have always been the number one priority for many of us. Their experiences and views on life should be fostered with special care and understanding. They need a strong support group to enable their success. They need ideal models to follow and to teach them the ins and outs of growing up and they need to respect one another and be part of the solution in the community.
We Got Your Back!
You don't have to do it alone. Every single one of us has a time in life when a friend or helping hand can assist us in making it through a difficult time or event. Being part of a team can be a life changing experience that can benefit each and every one of us in multiple ways!
Don't alienate yourself and just push everyone away thinking that they do not understand what it is that you might be going through.
Be seen and be heard. Learn self-discipline and train your body and your mind to work together until you achieve your goals and make your mark on the world.
Be assertive. Take initiative. Confront your downfalls and put the bad times behind you. Look forward to understanding yourself and learning the skills in life to be successful in everything you do. Embrace diversity and prepare for the most magnificent challenges you come to in life. Define yourself and reach for the stars.
It is not a weakness to need a friend at times in life, it is actually just good sense.

We Care About People
"It's what we do!"
One of the most important things a coach can do to be successful is to let your players know that you love and care about them. This is more than just words, it also involves actions. Players not only need to be shown that they are loved and cared for by their coaches, but they must also be told explicitly that they are loved.
