ABOUT CECIL AVANT

As a coach, I believe I bring an energy and passion to the game that I hope resonates in every player I coach. I believe each and every player is capable of reaching his or her potential if provided the environment to do so.

I am a teacher of the game and I enjoy the process and journey of helping others grow.
