To Parents and Players,
Congratulations and Welcome to the 2018 Firestone Baseball Team! We look forward to a great year.
Meet the player/team night will be Mon 2/26 at 6 pm in the cafeteria. This meeting is mandatory for players and highly recommend parents/adult representatives to attend. You must let coach know if you are unable to attend.
Here is the list of what to bring based on last name–the board will provide the main dish-
A-D—Deserts or Fruit
E-K—Side dishes (potatoes, rice or pasta type dishes)
L-P—Salads or some type of vegetable
R-W—cooler with ice if possible with drinks for about 24 each-(splitting so we have a variety)
R-SC-Gatorade/Powerade type drinks
SH-SP-some type of Soda/Ice tea/juice
If you have not done so yet THIS year, it would help me out so much if you all could please get on the website and go to the player and parent information form at the bottom of the first page. I need ALL of you to fill this out completely with your parent’s and your full names, email addresses and phone numbers. Even if you are getting emails, please still go on and sign in–Even if you had done so in the past year or two-I need to have updated and current information. I don’t have names attached to several email addresses that I already have so I don’t always know who I am sending information to. If you can’t get online, please fill out the player contact form that coach or I will give you and return to coach as soon as possible. I know that there are kids on the list that I have no information for-please be sure that you pass along all this information among yourselves, so I know that I am reaching all of you.
I will be weeding out old information and if I don’t have updates with proper names attached I will be deleting them. This will put you at risk of not receiving important information.
So far, I have had several updates and thank you for that-I only need it to be done 1 time so ask each other if it may have been done already-and hope they put in the right information-😊
Gold squad will practice from 6-7 Thursday and Friday.
Green squad will practice 7-8 today but change to 5-6 pm on Friday
Your child will know which squad they are assigned to at this time
No one will practice on Saturday
Once teams are chosen: There will be practice on Thursday and Friday this week at 6 pm and there will be a practice on Sat afternoon-time to be determined.
Then next week starting Monday 2/26 there will be practice right after school (3:30)
Practice times will change after next week but we will update as we know more.
The kids will always be notified of practice schedules so you should check with them often as well.
Also there are no more morning conditioning sessions.
Thanks everyone and enjoy the warm weather!
