CYSO Outreach Program

These first year students, along with their teacher, are all in their first year of playing. 

This a wonderful example of what our teachers accomplish in a given school year. The students are not amazing players yet but they are amazing and ambitious students. We are proud of our CYSO outreach students and what they continue to accomplish!
