Outlook outstanding for this season!

(9/20/14)  Based upon players, parents, and coach responses last season, the changes that were made vastly improved the experience for all Lakeshore Storm participants.  We are not willing to stop there, however.  It is our commitment to build upon that improvement and to strive for, as a club, that next level of success.  In the 2013-14 season, we saw 7 teams compete for tournament championships (several did so multiple times).  We would like to increase that number this season.  Therefore, we will be committing to additional skills clinics and additional practices hours being available to coaches for the 2014-15 season.  This is a very exciting time to be a Lakeshore Storm player or coach…and things only look as if they’ll get better.

*FLASHBACK!  Last year’s 16-1′s won several championships and competed for several others (top) while the 12-1′s also added their name to the List of Champions in 2014(bottom).  We’re looking to add even more this season….161BadgerRegion2014(15)121StormTournament020214(1)
