In the wake of COVID-19, providing a safe way for girls to develop as whole players, build meaningful relationships, and have fun is more important than ever. Members of our Leadership Team oversee residential life, health and wellness, soccer and elective programming and special events. All summer leadership staff report directly to the Directors, Katy & Paul.
