We will have players at various locations with 1 parent chaperone per 2 players collecting donations for the Silver Bullets. This has been so successful in the last 2 years that we have not needed to do any further fund raising campaigns. Please come out and help. The boys have a good time and all our supporters have been very generous. (Sure beats selling more raffles tickets or calendars!!)Keara Doherty (Fund Raising Director) will be at the Information Table and parent meeting so you can sign up your player/ parent to volunteer his shift. Each family is asked to do volunteering and encouraged to join in and do more. There will also be opportunities to volunteer on game days. This volunteer sheet for games will be available once JV & Varsity rosters have been defined. This is the only way to keep our equipment updated and registration fees down.

Miscellaneous:
-Please have all players bring their own water bottle to practices and games. There will be no water provided at the field.
-Please have players dressed in t-shirt, shorts, cleats and athletic supporter until equipment is handed out.
-Throughout the season there will be an Information Handout regarding the upcoming week’s events and schedule given out at the end of practice on Thursday nights.
-Parents, it is a lot of work to run this program and we need volunteer help. There will be a Volunteer Sign-up Sheet posted shortly through Sign Up Genius so please sign up and help.
