A message from Coach Tana:
I have had the opportunity to be part of the AZ East Valley Junior family for the past 10 years, either as a head or an assistant coach. I have coached various age groups from 13's-17's, and every year has proven to be successful.  Whatever age group I am asked to coach, either head or assist, I do my best to embrace the season and provide quality instruction/coaching, develop relationships and try to create a fun, energetic and positive season. Therefore,  I look forward to another exciting season with my EVJ girls!

My goal is to develop the physical, technical, and emotional part of the game and give every player an opportunity to play at the next level if they want.  There is always a place to play if you choose, you just have to work hard and want to get better. Work hard - Play harder and have FUN !!!
