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 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.

2017 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 1st. 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.

Concussion Papers- Please be sure you have read and returned your concussion paperwork by Monday August 21st.

-Please have all players bring their own water bottle to practices and games. There will be no water provided at the field.
-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.
