Heads up…for the third consecutive year, we’ll be taking over EZ Air for just our matches! We don’t yet have a date confirmed, but we’re hoping for the third week in January. We’ll share it with you in the monthly email from your Match Support Specialist that will be sent out the beginning of January. Bigs, feel free to participate as much or as little as you wish, as you can accompany your Little from area to area whether you participate or not! Besides trampolines, there is a climbing wall, a balance game where you try to knock each other into the foam pit, and laser tag as well! RSVP by Jan 11.

We are waiting to see how much interest there is before securing a training facility, so please RSVP ASAP to let us know of your interest in this incredible opportunity and availability to bring your Little on the first Thursday of each month this winter through spring.
