✨The Boca Warriors' Road to the 2023 AAU Junior Olympics

A job well done! from all of our athletes who competed throughout the AAU Junior Olympics' District and Regional events this past June.

Many of these competitors achieved new personal records and all gave their best effort, which is always the goal. The hours of training and their dedication to attending practices paid off big -- all having memories to last a lifetime -- and a good number of our runners and throwers advancing on to the next level - The 2023 AAU Junior Olympics !
