Time to Get Ready Bengals!

Happy Sunday  Bengal Families! 

It feels so good to type that again!

First of all,  WELCOME to all of our new families! We are so excited to have you as part of our Bengal family. We hope that you have fun, learn some things and have a great experience as part of our program! I want to take some time to set a few expecations, give you a few key dates early in the season and hopefully get you and your athletes excited for our 2019 season! 

Update TeamUnify Account:

Please make sure that your Team Unify account is up to date with correct e-mails and phone numbers for you and your atheltes! This will be my primary source of communication throughout the season so it is essential we have correct information. It also may have been awhile since you last logged in so checking in again may be a good idea :)
