Michael Boss – Head Coach, High Performance


“Not every player aspires to be the best tournament athlete they can be. But for those who do, our high performance team has the experience, knowledge and commitment to help them achieve their highest goals. My further vision is to see our talented juniors develop into better people, not just better players.
