Why is Blue Blaze important for your club?
“The great thing about Blue Blaze is that our players get to come here to play the sport they love without the pressure of worrying about a state championship. These girls are all representative players that get to take a leadership role in their own game, do their own self correction and still get that time on the diamond to practice, so it’s an awesome opportunity for them to play.”
-Dione Taylor, Head Coach of the North Shore Hurricanes
