National College Viewing Events
The 2014 Summer College Viewing period for our 15U-17U Teams went extraordinarily well. Our team performed at their very best gathering the attention of college coaches from across the nation. From great showings to winning championships each game gave the players the opportunity to showcase the results of all the training and hard work put in during the previous months. The addition to receiving great college looks, the players enjoyed their time off by relaxing and having fun in the pool and on the pool table. Away from the team house they also took up the excitement of the Las Vegas strip. We look forward to next year's travels where ever it may lead us...
The past visit was riddled with training from Seattle to Spokane Washington. If there is one thing that remains consistent, is things are truly growing in the Puget Sound.

After reviewing where the student were prior to their grow, Coach Stacey applauds the efforts of the entire Seattle staff and the difference they are making in the area. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!
