“…Winning isn’t everything, but wanting to win is. Just like anything you coach or work at, we have made some changes to make us better as a team and we have made some big changes to get us where we are. My little team has definitely worked extremely hard to get prepared for the game. For a group of 5-6 year olds you won’t find a group of kids to work any harder. They have gotten better each week throughout the year, so all the hard work they have put into this year all comes out on Saturdays.”
