The Meijer AAA 18U team is returning four members from last seasons roster. They will be looking for them to lead this team and create the Meijer Culture. We have added a number of high end players that should help us increase our offensive production. We think that we have great depth this season along with being very strong in the pipes. After losing in a shootout in our the NAPHL 18U Championship Game to Madison, this team is fired up to try and get back to that championship game. The 16U team with New coaching staff and one returning player in Rayce Jacobs looks to rebuild.
