We understand that this is a much higher cost than this club experience cost last year. This year with additional overhead and adding coaching to multiple events we are charging Elite Team members the cost of participation. We want to let you all know that we are planning on working on fundraising efforts for our Elite team throughout the season as a group. We will discuss fundraising at our team meeting on Saturday, April 15th. If you would like to talk about financial assistance please contact Ariana Hannemann at [email protected] or call at 206-949-9137.
