Statement from Coach Hopkins:
As a program, our goal is for our players to graduate as strong, confident young women who possess the tools they need to move on to the next step in their lives. Whether or not that next step includes soccer, we want them to be confident in their abilities, both physically and mentally, and to understand that with hard work and discipline, they can accomplish anything.
