Definition: A group of people affiliated either by consanguinity (by recognized birth), affinity (by marriage or other relationship), or co-residence (as implied by the etymology of the English word “family”) or some combination of these.
Our family is our foundation. The family we have gained with our teammates & coaches, as well as the extension into our families and supporters outside of practice. We recognize and respect that all of us are here for a reason, and that whatever goals we set our sights on, it takes everyone’s energy, attention, and effort. We respect the family, and celebrate the family, and harness the collective power we create to ultimately take this program to the next level.
