News and Announcements
Good morning everyone,
How exciting that tomorrow is Opening Day for our boys and girls!!! This is one of the boards favorite days of the year…watching the children getting pictures taken, lining up for the parade, marching down Albin Rd, the Opening Ceremony, and a bunch of home games being played!!!
By now, you should have received information for your child’s time slot for team photos. Please make every effort to make the photo shoot…sponsors pay good money and we try to give back by giving them a team photo. Please make sure the boys arrive in full uniform (white pants). It is also easier to pre-order your photo package before Saturday. Photos is also a good time to give your head coach the money and receipts from our fundraiser.
At 9:30AM, all boys and girls will gather with their teams at Gosling Field and receive their sponsor’s banner. At 10AM, the parade will begin. Best places to sit/stand to watch it are Albin Rd or the road leading down to Gergler Field.Opening Ceremony will begin around 10:30AM with games following. Please reach out out to your coach if you still have any questions. Looking forward to seeing everyone and your children tomorrow.
