News and Announcements
Just a reminder that the hanging basket orders are due by Friday, April 12.
Delivery is on Wed. May 8 and order form is attached to this email.
The document 2019_Basket_Sales.pdf was attached to this post.
Just a reminder that both classes will be at the turf tomorrow.
As well, returning players will complete the returning player application form via the Google doc on Wednesday during class time.
Well……that was an interesting 24 hrs and a bit chaotic.
Apologies for the craziness of the day as well as the cancellation of the high school provincial tournament but up to the 11th hr this morning the organizers were doing everything possible to try to make work. Coquitlam and area took too much snow yesterday and last night and there were still significant amounts on fields today and the city of Coquitlam shut down all fields.
It started snowing as soon as we were to play our first game yesterday at 2:00 and didn’t stop til after midnight.
Results aside, aware that the boys are disappointed in losing their tournament but Mother Nature won the battle. Feel particularly bad for our 12’s who now miss out on their last BC’s as well as the chance to get another banner but..can take solace in knowing nobody else has it either.
A lot of time was spent and unfortunately so was a lot of money and most we can not get back as rentals and hotels, while sympathetic, still have their businesses to run.
Thx to everyone for their patience, help, and time as we sorted options out. Especially those at the ferry terminal today!!
All guys should be at school tomorrow. At least they get to take part in the Spartan Day and a special timetable. All should be wearing red (pinnies???) and I think Grads are to wear their grad ones.
Have a good weekend – one more until spring break!!
Parents – aware that many boys are planning to not return with team on Friday as they will be attending Team BC tryouts on Saturday.
If a parent is not going to be at the field Friday when games end and he is staying with someone else, can you provide me with an email detailing who and where he will be going so I can add to my file (and account for all in return).
Hope everyone is having a good finish to their weekends!! Thought a reminder/update would be a good thought before tomorrow to make sure all are on same page
First though – would like to congratulate all players and parents who took part in the bottle drive and also another huge thx to Kevin Reiberger for his organization of another successful bottle drive. Final tally is not in yet but last report we were over $3,000!! thx to all.
Update for BC’s during the days of Wed to Fri:
-Vancouver teams start tomorrow and I just received an email that weather, fields, and conditions are looking positive. Final decisions will come tomorrow at some point but we look to be okay for our scheduled play in Vancouver later this week
Update/reminder for tomorrow (Monday’s games);
9:00 Jr game – RB 1 vs Claremont 1
10:15 Sr Game – RB vs Claremont 1 (Gr 12’s)
-for these games we would like the boys to be at the game 45 min prior to start to begin warm-up 30 min prior
-both these games are games that are part of the high school championship tournament
11:00 – Jr 2 – scrimmage/practice vs NDSS (be at field for 10:45)
11:45ish – Jr 1 – scrimmage/practice vs NDSS (this is a slight change) – be at field for 11:30
12:15/12:30 SR game – Sr 2 (gr 11’s) vs NDSS (previously at 12:00 slightly later to help NDSS travel)
2:15 Jr game – Jr 2 vs RB 2
-the last two games listed at Lochside are also games that will count towards the BC Championship tourney and would like the boys there for 45 min prior to their start ready to warmup 30 min prior
For all games ALL players are to equipped properly as if they are playing a club game under BCSS rules meaning all must have a mouth guard and chest protector. This is NOT OPTIONAL. If guys choose not to wear or bring they likely will not be playing. As well, all players are to be wearing their Claremont uniform (pinnie and shorts) as well as their red long sleeve under their pinnies.
Lastly – please remember to bring in permission forms and $$ for the departures Wed and Thur this week.
Thx – see all tomorrow.
