Eastern PA can nominate 2 participants in either golf, baseball or swimming.
The weekend will include educational workshops, sports clinics, and sports competitions.
Participants and one parent/guardian will be sponsored by CSL to attend the weekend event (November 8-10), in Phoenix, AZ. This sponsorship will include the coordination and cost of airfare, ground transportation in Phoenix, Arizona, and hotel arrangements (attendees will be responsible for transportation to/from their hometown airport).
Participants will be asked to arrive by 12:00 pm on Friday, November 8th and are free to depart any time on Sunday, November 10th. Participants who reside within the Eastern Time Zone will be provided with an option to arrive into Phoenix on Thursday, November 7, in order to accommodate the travel constraints that occur as a result of flying across multiple time zones.
