The OCC had planned to host a U15 Individual Camp and U18/20 Team Camp at the end of November but once again, Covid got in the way.  As an alternative, we are launching an online Athlete Series 15 for U15’s!  Five online events specifically for U15 athletes.  We wanted to bring topics that would be useful in a pandemic impacted year and they include:
