This is a FREE event for students and their buddy!

TOURNAMENT SPONSORS NEEDED
Tournaments are GREAT for our students – they can really help them grow by allowing them to step outside of their comfort zone and doing something that challenges them to be more!
We offer the BEST tournament experience possible for our students. And in doing so, we incur a lot of costs. Therefore, we are seeking businesses and interested individuals to help us by being a sponsor of the tournament.
This is a great opportunity for recognition for your business with our local and Dallas families!
We SO appreciate any and all sponsorships you can offer!
If you have additional questions, please reach out to Mrs. Chapman.
TOURNAMENT PREP CLINIC THIS FRIDAY
Our tournament preparation clinic takes place on Friday, November 1 at 7 p.m.!
