training in the gym, running, cross country skiing, swimming. Some of them
have already been to Florida and the spring camps will start

fronts, some of them are: hiring a new head coach, defining program
fees, creating a corporate sponsorship program. We'll have more details

"Suggestion Box" and we have already received ideas and comments from the
membership. The more communication we have with each other the
better for the Club!
