Our Summer program features 5 tournaments for the Sophomores and 8th graders, 4 tournaments for most other age groups. Our practices features all age groups at Malvern Prep at one time – making life easy for those with multiple kids or sharing rides.
We are committed to utilizing every player on the team in some capacity. The great thing about the game is there are so many ways to contribute, if a player understands all the roles on the field they will find their way.
