Coach Tommaso and  all of  our athletes are ready for an exciting start to the season. We will be holding a Welcome BBQ for  all of  our Bolts families to catch up after summer holidays and meet Coach Tom ma so. The BBQ will be held on the basketball courts of the Complex (Birthday party area if inclement weather) on  THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20  from 5-730. As usual, this will be a potluck event. The Bolts Board members will be BBQing hot dogs and we will have drinks. All families are asked to bring something to share  to this potluck event.  

 

COME AND PICK UP YOUR BOLTS SWAG  

 

We will be holding 3 evenings for  all of  our Bolts families to come and pick up their new Bolts swag for the season and an information sheet outlining some of our plans. These nights will be SEPTEMBER 20 (Same night as the BBQ!), SEPTEMBER 25, and OCTOBER  1.We  will be set up on the deck with all of the information you need between 430 and 6. Please be sure to come to one of these evenings so you don’t miss out!   

 

VOLUNTEEERS NEEDED  

 

The Board has changed to a more  committee based  structure. If you would like to  help out  with Fundraising, Meets, Sponsorships, Equipment or Promotions we are looking to start these committees as soon as possible. Please email  admin@thunderbolts.ca  if any of these exciting committees interest you! As we all know, volunteers are an integral part of our Club.  

 

Another opportunity to help the Club out is with website updating. If this falls into your skill  set  please email  admin@thunderbolts.ca  to express interest.  

 

Thanks again to  all of  our Bolts Families who always come together to make this sport the best it can be for our athletes!
