Coach’s Message

My family and I are thrilled to be joining the Sylvan Lake Gulls organization. I believe with our Ownership, Management, and the support of Sylvan Lake and central Alberta we are going to provide College Players from all over North America a one of a kind summer ball experience. I can’t wait for the 2021 Season to start. GO GULLS!!!
