With this recent donation, we have now donated over $150,000 to local charities through the efforts of our board, full time staff and the amazing families that represent our proud club.

As you know, this tournament is designed to teach our kids the value of "giving back" to our community by supporting a local charity. This year we are proud to be partnering with "Kinetic Kids" of San Antonio..
