Owners of Hot Feet Sports: Trevor and Jennifer Bollers
Trevor and Jennifer Bollers are all-around sports lovers who think the best place in the world is youth sports land with kids learning to play whatever game they want to try. They started Hot Feet Sports in 2009 running sports camps for kids to work on running and agility. Hot Feet has morphed into a travel club for several sports including Volleyball. The goal is to evolve Hot Feet into a place where parents can have all of their youth sports experiences because we will schedule activities so that our dragons can be ultra multi-sport athletes.
