Reminder:  The structure of the Region 7 Coaches education and athlete training program has changed  (as of Nov. 2016) and all former program's dealing with Future Stars, coaches education, and athlete training opportunities will now be lead by Richard Pulsfort- Region 7 Chairman.  Please direct your inquiries to your State Director or Regional Director.  It was a pleasure directing this program for the past 13 yrs and I wish all of the athletes and coaches (former and current) the best of luck in all of their future endeavors.
--Coach Phill

Future Stars Iceland Training Event Photos
This summer the Future Stars boy's were invited to participate in a "road trip" to Iceland for a "Friendly" training camp and travel experience.  Four current and former Future Stars athletes, and two other aspiring athletes took the plunge and went on this journey.  The training was intense, the fun was FUN, and the experience provided many memories to savor.  We spent over 10 days training and exploring in Iceland working in 3 different WORLD CLASS training facilities, sharing our training and talent with the aspiring clubs of Gerpla, Armann, and Fjolnir of Iceland.  Our host was Gerpla where the boys lodged family style, cooking their own meals, swimming at the HOT pools during breaks and enjoying the company of each other and the Iceland athletes....Check out the video below put together by Al Shamah, the father of one of the athletes who traveled with us and provided great assistance during our adventure.
