This program is a must for any young player who wishes to learn and develop the essential skills needed to play at the high school level. Remeber this - In 2010 over 65 freshmen were cut at Skyview and Columbia River - High schools alone. Parents need to understand that every high school has only one freshman team and can keep only 12 players. Too many kids simply come into high school not prepared, because they have not played enough and have not learned the proper fundamentals. As a high school varsity coach, I stress daily the essential skills both offensively, and defensively that should be mastered if you wish to, not only play in high school, but to excel at a high level.

CAGERS IS A GREAT PROGRAM TO HELP ANY YOUNG PLAYER REACH THAT GOAL
