This past summer, Team Oregon had 17 athletes participate in several sports including basketball, baseballlacrosse, and soccer during the 2017 Games held in Miami, FL. Our delegation not only had an incredible time in their respective sport but also loved meeting new friends from all over the world, spending time with host families, and exploring a new area of the country!
This year, both the Games and ArtsFest will take place from August 5 - 10. The Games will be held in Orange County, CA, while ArtsFest will take place down the road in Long Beach, CA.
Sports include: basketball, baseball, flag football, Iice hockey, lacrosse, softball, girls volleyball, dance, star reporter (sports journalism), swimming, table tennis, tennis, and track and field.
Arts include: acting/improv, culinary arts, dance, musical theatre, rock band, visual arts, and vocal music.
We plan on expanding our delegation this coming year when we head down to California to represent our community. If you or someone you know is interested in joining our delegation for this summer, whether as an athlete or artist, please contact Len Steinberg at email@example.com or 503.535.3555. Commitments must be made by February 23, 2018.
