Hey, y'all I am so excited about getting this program going!  ECCHO athletics programs are heading into their 5th year with Eagles Baseball leading the way, we've since added Volleyball, Cheer, and Soccer to our program and I am really pumped about adding this option to our programs as well.  I ask that everyone please be gracious and kind as we get this program off the ground.  I will be working with the information that I gathered at the Golf Informational Meeting to set more definite parameters for fees and practice days.  Below you will find the information that I gave out in the meeting.  This is an outline of what we are looking to offer this year.  Please remember that we are in the early stages of figuring out all the details, so the information below may seem vague at this time, but if you have questions, please contact me directly.  If you are interested in our Golf Program, Please download and fill out the Golf Program Interest Sheet and return it to me at the email below. 

                       Blessed to Serve,
