On Dec. 3, 2022, we held our annual High Desert Instructional Camp n' Showcase in Hesperia, California. After 2 successful years of hosting this event in the month of January, we elected to move this event to the month of December. Our main goal was to turn this event into a Toy Drive for the children of the High Desert community.
The event was a success with many toys donated by attending campers. All donated were then collected and given to the "A Greater Hope" Holiday of Hope Toy Drive . All donated toys will be distributed to children from the High Desert region.
We had a great camp and finished with friendlies between our attending E1 teams as College Coaches watched on. We have no doubt this event will become a staple of our #CommunityFirst #CommunityCommitment Pledge annual events. Thank you to all who donated toy(s) and as always, we appreciate your support! #E1Family #BlessedToPlay #Grateful #CommunityFirst #CommunityCommitment

Our Elevate One (E1) Organization is proud to honor and celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month with "E1 Prospectos" dri fit jerseys. This is our way of saying "Thank You" to our families and our fans of Hispanic heritage for their passionate and unwavering support. We are also proud to be one of the first Amateur Youth Sports Organizations to commemorate this celebration on our game day and fan apparel, which is now entering our third year of commemorative of the celebration.
Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402.
The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period.
E1 College Exposure Games Series vs Arizona Western College in Yuma, Arizona has been set for October 9th, 16th and Nov. 13th . This is a great opportunity for our Student Athletes. Thank you Coach Nikki for the years of support for our Organization!!!
