The Rox team gears up for the second session of the AAU Nationals with Destinee Hooker and great Rox gear for all the players!
The Rox crew woke up bright and early to get the booth open for all the players that day. This was a bitter-sweet day for the crew because it was Destinee Hooker’s last day at the 1st Place Volleyball booth. Girls lined up, for what seemed like miles, to get the chance to take pictures with Destinee and get her autograph. The DHook merchandise flew off the shelves and everyone was having a great time. Once again, Destinee challenged the AAU players to a dance off. All the girls, including some of the Rox crew , rocked out to amazing dance tunes picked by Troy himself! As the end of the day approached Destinee signed her last autograph and took her last picture. After the booth closed down the crew took Destinee and her father out to a great, fun-filled dinner!
The crew had a hard time getting started in the morning, but after the usual Caramel Machiattos and Troy’s high-maintenance Latte, everyone was ready to tackle the day! The smell of hard work and determination filled the air as the players fought their way to the top of their age bracket. The buzz of Destinee Hooker was still circulating and it broke our hearts to tell people that the previous day had been her last at the AAU National’s. But, their sadness didn’t last long when they saw the amazing Rox Volleyball swim suits! Those things were a hot item at this tournament. The day went by so fast and everyone had a great time.
Wednesday: Parents and players were lined up waiting when the Rox crew arrived to open the booth for the day. They wanted to get their hands on the blow-out sale items since this was the last day of the tournament. Players also needed new shoes, knee pads, shorts, socks and ankle braces because of all their hard playing that week. Good thing we were there to help! The day ended early as the tournament finished up and the crew began the ultimate take-down. All the merchandise had to be packed up, lights and TVs taken down, manikins taken apart and boxed and finally the wood floor and giant, silver trusses taken down. Once again Shana, our Warehouse Manager, was on hand to keep everyone in line and working. The final score for the semi-truck Tetris game? Rox Crew-2 Semis-0! We dominated!
