    In a culture that pushes sports and academics, other important facets of child development are often overlooked. OA  closes this gap while emphasizing essential values such as hard-work, determination, and leadership in a competitive team-oriented environment. I’m thankful OA has given my teammates and me a platform to make our community a better place.
