With the Fall Tryouts approaching soon, Open Gym Premier wants to take a moment to shine light on some of our coaching staff. Often overlooked, coaches are the backbone of any good team and set each and every player and parent up for a successful and beneficial season. Once a month, we want to take some time to spotlight our hardworking coaches and give our #OGPFamily a bigger picture about our staff.
