On behalf of the Scorpions Staff, I would like to give you an update on the direction of our Scorpions South Program.
In an effort to provide the best overall experience for each of our players and families in our South Program, effectively immediately, all business related matters including payments, scheduling and player issues will be run through our home office in Orlando. Coach Wilkerson and Coach Sandel will continue to be an integral part of the Scorpions operation, helping with recruiting needs, player placement and coaching within our organization. Players from the south will be placed on teams with players from the Orlando area in order to ensure that our teams are as competitive as possible on the National stage. It is our hope that by making this change, Coach Wilkerson and Coach Sandel will be freed up to do what they do best: develop players and provide opportunities for them to excel at the next level. It is also our hope that by making this change, the Scorpions will be able to produce several teams at each age group that can compete and represent the Scorpions brand to the fullest all the while presenting our players and families with a streamlined and consistent experience.
If you should have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out Brad, George, Matt Gerber or myself.
We look forward to being a continued part of your development and quest to play at the next level.
Robert “Coach” Rikeman
