  • Thanks to Coach Waterfall I have a new obsession!  I started playing for fun last year during his Wednesday morning clinics and now I can't get enough!  Coach has enthusiasm and energy that portrays his love for the game and it rubs off on all his students.  I look forward to my weekly lessons knowing that not only will I gain knowledge, skill and exercise but also laughter.  Cannot thank him enough!  - Joelle O.
