Our reach even extends beyond national borders, with several of our athletes gaining international experience and recognition.

Central to our mission is the belief that every child deserves a nurturing and safe environment in which to grow. At Vanguard, we instill traditional values like diligence, teamwork, and exemplary sportsmanship, shaping not just athletes but well-rounded individuals ready to succeed in any endeavor.
