“We’re spoiled. (Martin Marketing) is an integral hub of TST’s strength and growth. Their support to our team families and business functions enable our coaches to develop world-class citizens and swimmers, and leave time for our parent-volunteers to enjoy watching their kids compete and belong to a cohesive team. While the kids love the spirit wear Marketing Marketing has developed; the board loves the funding and savings they’ve delivered.”
— Debbie Maynard, TST Treasurer.
