MOJLC, the Club, promotes safe play in an environment that teaches children hard work and dedication are rewarded on and off the field. The club does not select players at tryouts, all children are equally entitled to play. The sport lends itself to a philosophy that promotes teamwork. A competitive team needs every player on the field to play hard and recognize that his/her role on the team is important, regardless of the position played. The Club embraces the mantra of the Positive Coaching Alliance and expects to offer every player the opportunity to demonstrate his/her highest quality of play.
