The Surge Cadets & Surge 2.0 T-Shirt Sponsorship Program is now in swing! Please consider donating to our organization. Your donation helps us keep costs low to families while still providing beautiful costumes & props, as well as team tournament fees and practice space rentals. Without our supporters we could not bring this sport of the arts to so many talented children! Details can be found here:
