The D2 kick off meeting will be held Thursday, August 16th at 7:30pm at the NeuroLIFE Institute (across from our fields). This meeting is for ANYONE interested in playing this year!
Practices will start on Tuesday, August 21st - all practices and games are in TeamApp, so please start getting your RSVPs in.
Odds & Ends with the Quins!
Odds and Ends with the Quins is our new, year-round fundraising program! Now, when you have a task or odd job that needs to be completed, such as moving, painting, or gardening, you can hire a qualified Harlequin or two to help you out. When you pay, part of fee will go to the club, and the other part will go towards that player's account, which they can use for dues, team flights, and more. Information on how to hire a Harlequin can be found here!
We are always improving - that includes our social media! We are looking for new hashtags (like #TackleTuesday) to show off all that the Quins have to offer - tweet us your best hashtag and you could win a brand new Atlanta Harlequins baseball cap!
