What is a 5 v 5 series?
A 5 v 5 series is a sequence of five, 5 v 5s. Each subsequent session builds upon the one before it to facilitate player development and a high level of competition.
Why are we doing this?
We believe that we are stronger together. By facilitating an all-female led 5 v 5 series we are not just telling young women that they can be leaders, we are showing them. This experience is unique in that it allows players in Southern California to come together, learn together, and grow together.
What is the format of the 5 v 5 series?
Each session begins with 1 hour of instruction from the best coaches in Southern California and culminates with an hour of 5 v 5.
