We are pleased to announce the promotion of Nicole Miller to the newly created position of Boys’ Program Director.

Among her duties will be to take the lead on club communication, scheduling, and staffing as well as assisting in the creation of camps, clinics and training for the boys’ program. The role will give the Boys’ Program a dedicated presence administratively, which will take on even more importance with the changes to the schedule this season due to the pandemic. Noack will continue in his role as the Boys’ Technical Director for the upcoming 2020-21 season.
