212 is our culture

At 211 degrees water is hot. Very hot! However, at 212 degrees water boils. When it boils it creates steam and with steam you can move a locomotive. It is our belief that every coaching session should bring this same attitude. It is, quite literally, that extra degree that every EGS coach is constantly striving to provide to each student we are lucky enough to coach. We feel privileged and humbled to coach you in this wonderful game.
