The time is long overdue for an elite club in Rockford. I've not only seen hundreds of college-bound players come out of Rockford over the last 15 years, but I've been fortunate enough to have coached many of them. We look forward to providing the top players in the area the chance to get the training, exposure and support that they deserve right in their back yard. We will assemble a team of coaches that is second to none and give the players and their families something to be excited about!
