 Our team is well balanced in all facets of the game, said Rob Chornomud, Head Coach for the Pan American Team.  Mike Ciolli and Jamie Yoder offer their defensive prowess, which will serve as the backbone of our team, while Ziggy Marszalek and Eric Weichselbaumer's offensive talents and international experiences will be key in this year's match-ups.

 Chornomud believes that this year's Pan American USA Team has the power of speed as their ultimate weapon, which will contribute to the team's success as they line up as one of the dominant forces in international competition.

 This year's emphasis will be on teamwork, said Chornomud.  I hope my background of stressing team unity and camaraderie will surface during competition to where we may overcome any adversity.
