The Captains Club is just a small way for student-athletes in Malverne to explore the different roles, responsibilities and expectations of what it takes to be a team leader. It doesn’t matter if you’re a captain, a bench player or anything in between. Be ready to enhance your leadership skills, because being a part of this is a step towards getting better, not only as an athlete, but as a student.
