What Players Say

Ever since coming to Syracuse from Maryland, Coach Pao has brought my game to a higher level. Working under Pao has made me more knowledgeable about the game.
Andy Plum, SDA
Coach Pao has really taken my game to the next level, and has prepared me to play in College. The intense 1v1 training sessions have improved my overall game!
Brooke Barbuto, SDA
“Thank you for coaching me for the past few years. I have learned a lot and have improved as a player so much under you. Because of you I have the privilege to play with the academy team. I don’t think I could’ve made it without you.”
Syracuse, SDA
“Just wanted to thank you for a great season. Not only do the parents appreciate all the work you have done developing the boys but it is great that the boys love their coaches. Thanks again!”
