Country Mills Eagles is an Athletic Club. Programs are run throughout the year, as well as private instruction and teaching. Our goal is to provide the highest level of quality instruction, and at the same time enjoy the benefits of healthy competition.
Athletes (beginners or advanced) between the ages of 6 – 19 years of age for our youth programs (including private instruction), but all of our programs are open to adults of all ages as well. In most of our athletic programs, we have adult levels well past the Master’s division. Our athletes have come from south of Albany to north of Saratoga, from as far west as Utica and as far east as the Vermont border. Many parents have found that our programs are worth the journey.
We do not have one particular location for our programs, as that is largely dependent upon the program and the participants involved. Nonetheless, we currently have an office location in the Town of Clifton Park.
Fundraising monies are used to purchase new equipment, upgrade uniforms, travel for away games or meets or matches.
We feel that both are necessary for the healthy development of an individual. However, when it comes to “practice with a purpose”, the development and progression of skills comes from training. This makes our programs fall into the “Competition” phase, as recreation is fun for the moment, but demands no training or improvement of skills. From our perspective, teaching each student to develop their skills and talents to the fullest is what separates us from most other organizations. Competition in the purest form is not about doing better than someone else, it is about becoming the best one can become! If that “best effort” out performs another, then victory is welcomed with open arms, but if it is not enough to out perform another, then the other team or individual deserves the victory. From that point, we work harder in the development of skills, which will enable our team or any of our individuals to a better performance the next time.
