Our Snap-Raise Fundraiser is nearing the end. 6 more days. We are close to our goal of $4000 for the girls and the boys have surpassed their goal of $4000. This is one of our main fundraisers for out team. We are asking that each athlete send out a minimum of 20 emails in hopes that we each athlete will receive a total donation of $100. If your daughter or son has not sent their 20 emails, please encourage them. This fundraiser can also be shared on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
Where does our fundraising money go? Team Shirts, Entry Fees ($400 per invitational on average for both boys / girls teams), Uniforms (approx $30 per singlet), and EZ Ups- tents are just a few of the items purchased with our fundraising dollars.
Thank you to those who have donated to our teams!

Parents and family (dogs on leashes too) can join us. Everyone that is going to be there needs to sign and bring the attached waiver – see attachment below (The trail is still private property)
