No Practice – This is a friendly reminder that there will be no practice for any WTSC training groups tonight due to our fall barn party (see below). We are looking forward to a big crowd at the party tonight but wherever you are, enjoy your night off.

 

Barn Party – An informational email was sent yesterday to all WTSC families who signed up for tonight’s team barn party at Eagle Forge Farm. Please speak with Coach Josh if you have questions about this event.
