Pool Noodle Olympics in Your Yard Soon!

Even though the children are young it doesn’t mean they cannot compete in the Olympics- the Pool Noodle Olympics! There will be no travel expenses involved, no advertising on network television, and no extensive training for 4 years. Once you set it up the children can practice all they want- in your backyard! Invite the whole neighborhood to your backyard- you know where your kids are.

To set the stage, we need some items to be used during the opening and closing ceremonies and for score keeping.

We are ready to begin!
