I will try to keep Saturday’ team meeting short and sweet.  To give you a heads up about some help we will need this season.  

1.  Transporting team tents to the meets.  Individual needs to have a truck or big suv.

2.  Purchasing snacks at Sam’s club for each meet.

3.  Hosting Pasta Dinners - 8/22, 8/29, 9/5, 10/3

The team fee for this season will be $250 and the cost of the Flrunners/Universal Trip will be $175.  As usual, we have our business sponsorship program to help defray the cost.  You can download the sponsorship form here.  If you raise more than the team fee (which we often have students do), the money will be kept in your account for next year.  Please note that sponsorship money cannot be used to purchase spirit items but can be applied to the cost of hotel rooms for overnight meets.  (For those who are new I will go over all of this at the parent meeting in detail.)  Please do not let the team fee discourage you from being on the team.  I will work with you to find a solution.  

Lastly, physical forms and FHSAA paperwork must be updated each year.  A number of students have outdated paperwork and have been notified via groupme.  The packet can be downloaded here.  Please write decline on the concussion form, unless you play another sport where getting a concussion is more likely.  I will arrange for anyone who wants to have a concussion baseline test done individually,
