Great leaders do not set out to be a leader…They set out to make a difference. It’s never about the role – always about the goal.

Practice / Calendar Notes: 

  • November Calendars are posted under the “Calendar” tab of the website.
  • Thursday, November 15 – all groups munch-out and poster making during the last 15 minutes of practice.  Bring a health snack to share.

Air Quality:  We will be monitoring air quality this week and if it is appropriate to cancel any practices, we will send out email/text messages.  As always, we operate with the assumption that all practices will occur as scheduled and are not likely to send out any cancellation message prior to 2:00pm. 

Text Message Alerts: If you have not taken the opportunity to verify your cell phone in order to receive text message alerts you are encouraged to log on to the team website and under "My Account" - "My Account" - add a SMS (text) number in the contact information and save.  The click on the "Unverified" that appears above the added number and follow the steps to verify your number.
