Here is an update on our sports program.
I am happy to annouce that we have more than enough girls to have a Varsity Basketball team! If you sent me an email you child is signed up. Now the next step on your part is to have the appropriate paperwork filled out. Please visit the website for the following forms that need to be completed and handed in to my attention by November 5.
On the website go to:
Parents and Players
There are 5 forms that need to be completed:
Childs current physical completed by your physician along with Current Health History Form
Emergency Treatment Form
$75 registration fee made payable to St. Rose of Lima
I will be talking with the coaches to finalize practices and other matters this week. I have the Basketball League meeting tomorrow night that will provide additional information for us to have a successful and fun season. Please check your emails for communication from your coach later in the week for more information.
Unfortuantely, we did not have enough sign ups for cheerleading and either a boys varsity or JV basketball team.
Please be advised that the Volleyball Season does not begin until February. If your child is interested in signing up and has not done so already, please send me an email. I have no information from the league about volleyball at this time.
Any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Thanks as always,
