For 2019, the U12 teams have both planned some very fun trips using the money they raised at the 2018 Hit-A-Thon. Remember the Hit-A-Thon is used to raise money to both help pay for these trips and to help fund other things for the club. Of the money raised, a flat amount of $3000 goes to the club and the remainder is divided equally between the U12 teams for their trip.
