HVTC Women’s Team Advances to Nationals

Congratulations to the HVTC women’s 55+ 9.0 team captained by Missy Pollick.The team was victorious at sectional competition and is headed to national playoffs in early November. Good luck!

Special thanks and a sportsmanship award go to the club’s other 55+ 9.0 team, captained by Karen Caine.The Caine team was created to provide a local flight for the Pollick team, so those players would have an opportunity to compete.

Sign Up Now for Junior Excellence Session II

The next session of Junior Excellence starts October 27. If you anticipate absences from the Junior Excellence classes, fees may be prorated if you ask at the desk for a blue Request to Prorate form and submit it during the first week of the session. Simply telling the desk personnel or the pros that a student will not attend will not trigger prorated fees.

For those absences that were not declared and prorated, we have Junior Excellence makeup days (no additional charge) scheduled for 4:30–6pm Monday, November 24, and Monday, December 15.
