T-SHiRT Fundraiser

Order Soon!

Once again, thank you so much for your support of our team in so many ways.  You are an amazing group!

One of our new parents, Jessica, who is Jack's mom, has put together another fundraiser for us to increase support for the kids going to nationals.  We are already able to provide some assistance through the other fundraiser, but Florida is a very long way to go!  

These shirts will be printed on white, high quality Wickie cotton and can be customized to include your family's or athlete's name.  They would make great Christmas gifts and would also be a way for parents to show support for kids at meets in the future.  A local vendor has donated the shirts, and Jessica has already secured some business donations.  

The shirts will come in youth small-large and adult small-2XL and will be $20, which includes the customization.  If you would like to order one (or more for your whole family!) please let me know by email, text, or in person at practice and bring (or send) me $20 per shirt by Sunday.  I can take cards, checks, or cash.
