I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

a coaching position.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Demand that the parents enjoy their children and not live through them!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Developing the area children, mentoring and enjoying their success in many different sports and celebrating the College success!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very supportive

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Create mentoring programs, to assist at risk children and a new facilities for training as we are loosing grounds to Football and and other sports.

Ways to make it better...

The club had more resources and parents support.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Training Facilities and Funding to rent the track for usage.

One thing I'd also say is that...

If not you then who?

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
