Currently, four former students are competing at the division 1 college level; Sidney Dukes at the University of Kentucky, Sarah Shaffer at the University of Arkansas, Danica Abanto at The Ohio State University and Drew Watson at Auburn University.

Also, fourteen‐year‐old Hannah Hagle competed at the 2018 US Secret Challenge, 2018 American Classic and the 2017 P&G National Championship.

The public is invited to attend and cheer on these elite athletes all weekend long. Tickets are $15 for adults for a session or $25 for a weekend pass. Kids 6-12 years old are $5 per session or $10 for the weekend.
