7.24.22 - T-Minus 3 Weeks!

Happy Sunday Bengal Families! 

We are 3 weeks away from the start of practice and preparation is in full swing! Today's email will be short and sweet. 

I've attached some great Bengal Dryland options for getting physically and mentally ready for the season. We love athletes in the water but there are many ways to prepare for an amazing season. Getting into a routine and starting to think about season goals are great ways to prepare for the season. Getting into a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) right now is also a great way to start preparing for what this season will bring. 

Make sure to mark your calendars for our important dates! 

Registration Opens - August 1st you can start registering for Girls Season on the AH-Schools website! You will need a recent physical on file (within the last 3 years) and the fee.

Kick-Off Picnic - Sunday, August 7th - We will be having our kickoff picnic at Lions Park in Ham Lake this year! From 4-6 pm we will be having a suit try-on and introduction to coaches, captains, and other teammates. All family members are welcome! Watch for more details from our Booster Club President. Location:  1204 157th Ave NE, Ham Lake, MN 55304

Please let me know if you have any questions!
