Our captain criteria is stringent, especially since captains are also junior directors on our Board of Directors and help with team rules, policy creation and implementation, and operate as overall liaisons between Flyers athletes and staff.  Captains need to embody the student-athlete role, be positive influences, strongly mentor younger teammates, lead the team with dedication and enthusiasm, and be the essence of what makes us unique - what makes us FLY.  It is a tribute to the character of the athletes in our program that every individual on our leadership council DESERVES to be there.  We are fortunate to have so many positive leaders and role models!  It's with pride we share the above individuals as our 2020-2021 team captains and junior board members!
