We wear red. We wear white.
We shoot, we score, we fight, fight, fight.

The VYS Patriots is a very competitive program while at the same time emphasizing skill development. The Patriots organization continues to work as a single academy program rather than four separate teams.

The Patriots is taking a long-term approach to develop the girls’ skills for the future so that when they reach the more competitive ages the girls will have mastered the fundamentals.
