There was a major change in officers Sept 2013, and since that time, there have been major improvements is all aspects of the association. We've added basketball and are now working on getting baseball going while maintaining our existing sports. I definitely think Harrowgate is moving in the right direction to help the children of this community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

At this time I don't think there are any changes necessary.

In previous years my children were participants in this organization and it was not run properly. Since Sept 2013 when there was a major overall to the board I decided to be a part of the change and became basketball Director. We have all worked diligently over the past few months to change the view of this organization as well as put the focus on the kids. We have a long road ahead of us but with the strides we have already made I know we are headed in the right direction.

Worst run organization I've ever seen....Had horrible issues with both my son and daughter with this organization. Adults more interested in themselves than the kids....I too will never volunteer with this organization again!

We as parents have recently taken back this organization and are running it the correct way. We strive to provide out children with a great atmosphere to learn the value of team sports. We have a mission to provide a safe and positive arena for our children to grow and provide an outlet for their energies!

I would invite you to come back home and see the difference, or at least come visit or talk with us. thank you for your concern and post. We highly value our parents feedback and I can say as a parent myself the 2012 season was the reason my family became involved to change it, in a positive way.
