WTLL families: We need your help!

Being that WTLL is still a new organization, many people in the community have never heard of us. We get questions all the time about "Why is WTLL better or why should I choose WTLL for my son/daughter?" All really good questions- but we feel that these answers would be best coming from our returning players. Help us out by stating your testimonial (short or long).....let us know why you continue to choose WTLL. We will compile them & post them on our new testimonials tab! You can email mailto:whitetanksll@msn.com or comment on our Facebook page! We appreciate your time & help! Thank you!
