Positions

The Leadership Team will be looking a little different this coming season than it did in previous years. Instead of having a group of leaders for all tasks that come with being on the Leadership Team, this year we will have specific leaders selected by the coaches and the team to fulfill different roles. These leaders will be chosen at the beginning of the season rather than after the summer as well. Also, leaders will be doing their specific roles throughout the whole season compared to just a portion of the season.

They will be in charge of getting the team to roll out mats and begin warm-ups in a timely manner at the start of practice. They set the tone for practice with their attitude and music selection!
