Culture Code & Rules
Our purpose is to provide players with a positive experience that can lend to long term holistic development. We aim to build great athletes and great people, to teach the value of commitment and competition, to inspire passion and camaraderie, and to provide players with an experience they can carry with them through their lives. Our league play is based on the value system of PPALife: Grit, Creativity, Camaraderie Competition, and Integrity and we rely on parents, coaches, and managers to withhold, demonstrate, and teach these values to our players.
