REMINDER: SPRING STUDENT – ATHLETES

Spring student – athletes who did not participate during the fall or winter seasons need to make certain that ALL their paperwork is complete and ALL requirements have been met as soon as possible.  DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE!!  Contact Mr. Clinton with questions.

REMINDER TO WINTER ATHLETES!!

All winter athletes need to return all school – issued uniforms, warm ups, balls, and equipment no later than Friday, March 17.  You are reminded that starting Monday, March 20, you WILL NOT be able to participate in a spring sport, including practices, until everything is returned.  Questions?  Contact Mr. Clinton.

POSSIBLE HELP NEEDED

As of last week, there was no school willing or able to host the regional track meet for our regional group on Monday, May 22.  In conversations with other AD’s, we found that one school was probably willing to host, but they simply don’t have enough help.  So, I am looking for about seven to ten people from our community who would be willing to volunteer their time to help with this meet.  Most of the jobs are fairly simple, and you would be properly instructed in what to do.  If you can help out, and do something great for our kids, please contact Ken Clinton here at Brookwood.

OFFICIALS NEEDED

We are very likely to be in need of officials for JV Baseball this spring.  If you are interested in trying officiating, contact Ken Clinton.  We will help you get all set up to do it.
