The coaches and players in the Monarch program have always considered themselves to be a "family".
To take this further, since the program began in 1992, there have been multiple players and coaches from the same families that have been a part of the Monarch program.
2018 brings two first time events:
1) A third sister from the Delos Reyes family has joined the program.
2) The daughter of a former player (Emily Townsend) is in the Monarch system.
The list is as follows:
Sisters Julia and Bailey Andersen
