Photos and videos from Texas winter training trip available

Thank you coaches and athletes and chaperones for a great trip this year. (And parents, for raising wonderful kids.) By now I’m sure you’ve heard some happy stories. Photos and videos of many of these special moments have been posted to our Flickr account.

A special thank you goes out to Katy for her outstanding organizational skills. She makes these trips safe, educational, and most important, fun. Plus somehow she arranged perfect weather. To all the coaches, your leadership sets a great example for the athletes. We appreciate all you do for the team.

It looks like we brought the warmer weather back with us from Texas. Here’s to getting on the Charles soon!
