2023 T-Shirt Order
If you have not heard, one of our graduated players (Lauren Meyer-Smeltz) passed away in a car accident, she was 9 months pregnant returning from her last OB appointment. Her daughter was saved by c-section and is currently in the NICU. We are utterly heartbroken for the Smeltz family and wanted to use this opportunity to raise money for her daughter Violet, who is still in the NICU, and husband Jake. Lauren played in the Oklahoma Homeschool Volleyball League for the Incredibles club located in Ada. She loved the Lord and was the best encourager on and off the court. She was loved by our community and we want to honor her memory with an Incredibles inspired t-shirt this year as well as give ALL proceeds from the t-shirt sales to her family. Please remember to pray for her family and friends as they navigate this very difficult time. Also, if you or someone you know has an excess of breastmilk and would like to donate it - baby Violet could really use your donation<3
