Well another Summer Games gone by. We prep over six months out of the year for this three-day event.

There are some very amazing stories that come out of each and every event. More than you’ll ever know. Each one of our athletes could inspire you with their courage, their stories of growing up and what they may have had to go through to get to this point and the parents say it best.
