About our Coaches

Squirt Tier III    Justin Paterson


  • Coach Patterson has been very involved with our beginner program starting in 2013. Justin has helped establish and implement practice plans for Caz Learn to Play program for 3 seasons. Coach Patterson coached the squirt mixed last year and we welcome him back.

"My coaching philosophy will produce two guarantees that I can make to kids. One is that they will have fun, the other is that they will know more about the game at the end of the season than they did when they started. The only commitment I ask of them is that they try hard. Our staff will get there by treating each player fairly, being prepared with age appropriate practice plans, and bringing the energy and humor necessary to create a great learning environment " - Coach Patterson
