This season we are all hoping to have the Country Club League back to normal and get some good racing in. At The Houstonian Club, we want to keep our kids motivated and excited, so we will be having meets in June whether or not we can compete against other clubs. The league’s coaches and program directors are still discussing the possibility of a having a regular season, so we are hopeful that as we get closer to the meet season, we will get the green light from the league. In any case, we are ready and excited for the upcoming season!
