Parents are the underlying reason this program is possible in the first place. Without their involvement, this team would not be able to function smoothly. Learn more about the role you can fill as a parent and how to join “Club 624”, our parent sponsorship program. 

We’ve continued to expand our social media, while creating a community newsletter, and developing brand standards to present a unified image.

Without sponsors providing material and financial support, our team wouldn’t be able to continue. Our relationship with sponsors goes beyond the checkbook, with a cornerstone of our program to build lasting and meaningful connections with those who support us.  Learn more about the benefits and process of sponsoring our team.
