Be Prepared

We ask all of our athletes, coaches, family members and volunteers to stay in contact with us and look for the latest information on our website When bad weather comes make sure to have a plan and take action. Check out the National Hurricane Center’s information on how to best prepare for bad weather. Stay safe!
