Also on tap will be a Parent-Child Shoot Around at the OHS gym on Friday, Oct. 3. All children must be accompanied by a parent or adult. A child unaccompanied by an adult may not play. This is a great way for parents and kids to bond and get some great exercise, before heading out to the JV and varsity football games at The Corral.
