A message from Coach Casey:
My mission and goal as a coach is to provide the best guidance, skill development and leadership to our athletes as possible. I strongly believe that pride, determination, a solid work ethic and accountability is the foundation to being a successful athlete and team.  As a coach, we are in a unique position to have a huge impact on young athletes and I take that role very seriously.  I am a passionate and competitive coach and encourage the same mindset of each of my players and teams!  EVJ is a true family atmosphere that fosters a competitive environment for all levels of the game as well as provides young athletes with memories and experiences that will last a lifetime.  I am excited for the upcoming club season!
