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. Lots of space available, sign up will be online , link is on our homepage website. The boys have a good time and all our supporters have been very generous. Keara Doherty(Fund Raising Director) will be at the Information Table if you have any questions . Each family is required to do volunteering and encouraged to join in and do more. Two hours of helmet drive and two hours of game day volunteering will help fulfill your volunteer obligations( four hours total). There will also be opportunities to volunteer on game days. This volunteer sign up for games will be available online once JV & Varsity rosters have been defined. This is the only way to keep our equipment updated and registration fees down.

2018 Barnstable Silver Bullets Football Program-This program is in production and if you would like to place a personal or business ad or a greeting for your player, please see Keara Doherty at the information table. Deadline for submitting the ads is September 14th. All profits go right back to the program.

School Comes First- We realize there are many Open Houses and Orientations in the next 2 weeks and as always BSB policy is school comes first. Coaches have asked that if you are able to, please join late after your function and just come in shorts.
