If you are interested in playing on the 2022-2023 JV Team, please fill out this quick form and a coach will reach out to you.
We continue to build and improve to provide all TAHA girls the opportunity to develop, create their own PATH, connect, play with girls from other cities and progress in a way that fits each player and encourages them to DARE TO DREAM. It’s a way to collaborate and engage in a defined process to ensure that each participant’s path will yield her desired result.
