Stoocked Buffet

End of Season Celebration - May 29th

Athletes and families enjoy a catered buffet, end of season of awards, presentation of thanks (and gifts!) to our coaches.  Our End of Season Celebration was scheduled for later in May, so please note the new date is now Wednesday, May 29th. 

 

This event is your last chance to return your uniform and avoid a fee. Uniforms (shorts, tank, sweatpants, jacket) need to be clean. We will not accept the uniform if there is still sticky stuff on them.

 

Please consider bringing outgrown spikes to the banquet for donation to future athletes. 

 

See you there!
