We will field teams two teams at every level: BLACK (HS)/RED (youth) and WHITE.

BLACK and RED TEAMS: Our most competitive teams made up of PRIDE's most advanced and skilled players. Practices include strategic team play, advanced stick mechanics, and complex drills. Players are expected to have a strong understanding of the fundamentals, while competing at the highest level.

WHITE TEAMS: While our white teams are also competitive, we spend more time on developing strong fundamentals including catching, throwing, and continue to emphasis the use of both the left and right hand equally.
