• Other Fill In Coaches - Floaters
We do take advantage of the local resources with the University of Lynchburg, Randolph College, and Liberty University's current and former players. These young men have been instrumental in helping with the kids and at the same time they have fulfilled a commitment to the community for something they are passionate about. We have striven to create a true community and recently we have been fortunate enough to have locally developed kids to come back and help as well. At some point, this will be the norm that the kids who played in the program will then become the instructors and the program will be an organic generational system of teachers and students. All coaches are carefully vetted and watched to make sure they fit in with the ideals and methods of instruction. These younger coaches will always be paired with an older more experienced coach. This is a vital part of our program and we look forward to many years of success using this principle.
