Community Involvement Requested

We are very excited to be hosting the Texas Teenage 8U Girls state tournament in Van this season.  Please pass the word and help welcome these families to Van.

This opportunity has been awarded to us by Texas Teenage due to our volunteer’s commitment to the children in our community and far beyond.  We are expecting thousands of people in Van all next week.

We will be playing host to teams from all around the State of Texas and we are asking local businesses and individuals from the community to help us make it a wonderful experience for our guests.

We are very thankful to our Chamber of Commerce for stepping up and assisting us with this task.

The families that will be arriving in Van on July 13th 2015 and will be here for a week.

On behalf of the VBSA we are very thankful for any help in making this tournament something special for the girls and their families to remember.
