Chesapeake Monthly Council Meetings 
We welcome all parents and volunteers to come out join us at our monthly council meetings. It is your chance to share your suggestions with us and help us build a stronger program for our athletes. Our Septembert Meeting is Tuesday, September 11. We usually meet the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30 pm at our new location - Greenbrier Christian Academy, 311 Kempsville Rd, Chesapeake, VA 23320. We plan all of our events, sports, picnics and other programs and need your input and assistance to help our program continue to grow and stay strong. 
Polar Plunge 2018
We had a great turnout of athletes, family and friends at the POLAR PLUNGE on Saturday, February 3. It was a cold day but the sun was out and we were "Freezing For A Reason". Thank you to everyone who came out and who donated to CHESAPEAKE ATHLETES. We raised a lot of money to help our team buy uniforms, go to the state tournaments and continue to add new athletes to our great program.
