Below you will find the required skills for being placed on Angels’ teams. However, athletes may be selected
based on other skills or attributes so should not worry too much. Please note that although we follow
minimum USASF skill requirements, it takes more to be a successful Angels Athlete. Coaches will be looking
for proper execution of the skills with STRONG technique. Simply “throwing” the skill will not be sufficient
in team placement.
