THANK-YOU to HOC!  The collective effort of the club makes these events happen, and sets these young athletes up for success.

Huge thank-you to all the parents – we had a lot of fun, great food and tons of support for all the athletes (even those athletes from other clubs that didn’t have their parents with them – they were free to “hang” with us).

The big hearts of the HOC crowd were on display!  I’m always proud of our group, anywhere we go.  I truly believe in standing up for dignity, kindness and sportsmanship.  We often encounter adversity, but we rise above.
