 To make it easier to contact families regarding important updates to practices, etc., I am asking each player and parent/guardian to sign up for Remind. For more information about the app, visit www.remind.com

To sign up, text the message @2015ball to phone number 81010. Please include player name.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Beginning when school starts in 2017, any player that misses practice for ANY reason will be required to stay 30 minutes after the next practice he/she attends to make up missed time. The number of practices missed will determine how many make up days will be required. It is up to the player to ensure that his/her ride is aware of this. I understand that there are valid reasons to miss practice occasionally but practice time is being missed none the less and needs to be made up for the good of the team.

 

 

 

The admission for the jamboree will be 5 for adults and 2 for students. With the gate, we will split it evenly among the schools who are scrimmaging after we pay our expenses.
