So many exciting things happening in the Athletic Department this spring!
Floor hockey, tennis and training for our boxing program are all happening now. Our boxing program has over 60 kids participating this year. Members take part in various stretching and conditioning drills, and learn the fundamentals of boxing with the help of bags and other equipment. Our boxing program is a great way for members to stay active, while promoting physical fitness and instilling confidence in our young athletes. The season will come to an end on May 6th, with our House of Champions Boxing Show.
Lacrosse signups are happening now, coming to an end on April 30th. The season will begin on May 3rd. Please check the calendar on our website for specific days and times.
Thank you to all of our dedicated volunteers who help to keep our athletic program running smoothly!
