Our Junior Coach program has been an important component in what makes Premier Academy so special. When you look at our current staff and coaches, many of them began as Jr Coaches and have grown and evolved into strong leaders themselves.
Our main goals are to provide participants with a positive coaching experience, ongoing learning and the skills and education for them to continue on in coaching and into the future. We are striving to develop more than athletes; we are developing people.
