3. Any parents who wish to attend the August 26 ministry trip will need to text Coach Hulings by Friday at 5:00.   The cost will be the same as the boys ($30.00).  We need to buy the tickets Friday by 5:00.  We still need three drivers for the vans.   We have the vans but we need the drivers.

4. Any athlete who doesn't have a ride to the East Lansing fields for next Tuesday needs to let Coach Hulings know tomorrow by practice.

Post Parent Meeting Notes

1.  I forgot to tell you we changed practice this week to 2:30-4:30 to accommodate Unity Fest.

2.  I had the wrong blog link on the parent agenda tonight.  Funny, that was proofed and no one saw it.  If you are reading this, you have the right blog.

3.  We will hand out uniforms on Monday, August 14 at the Athletic office in the school. JV will be handed out at 2:30 PM and the Varsity at 3:00.  Practice that day will be 3:30 PM.

4. The AD office will be sending out the Transportation form and some other forms via email for you to complete and sign.  It will be done via email.

5.  Here is the link for the concession sign up:

Important dates and notes to remember

1.  Every athlete must have a physical to start practice on Wednesday, August 9. You can get the forms from the high school athletics office. There is no exception to this rule as it is mandated by the MHSAA.

Week of 7/24 ONLY

Due to the soccer camp being held at our practice field the drop in soccer for the high school boys will be Tuesday and Thursday at their regular times, but will be held at the playing field behind Muskegon Christian Elementary off Evanston and Madison.

A couple of notes:

1.  If any parents could attend with the boys that might help.  In this area we would rather have some supervision, if possible.  

2.  The boys should NOT park on the road but in the parking lot of Muskegon Christian and walk to the field from there.

3.  The boys should all leave together.  

Chris did a great job of getting things ready for us for just this weeks pick up games.  When you see him give him a big thanks.
