The team’s mission is to grow our community, improve, and create together – earn respect for and represent Philadelphia. The support of those in Florida for Nationals was amazing, especially Philadelphia Patrol.

We’re most proud that we got to share the season’s experiences with the family, friends and fans who supported our work throughout the year.
AMP 2017 relied on and received plays from every teammate, and strengthened each day we were together. We’re eager to continuing pursuing new opportunities at the 2018 World Club Championships and beyond.
