A $50 “Bond” will be assessed to each family at registration for each singlet; it will be held until the end of the season and will only be cashed if the singlet is not returned.  Please make out a separate check for this. The most important thing we need from parents is your commitment of time and effort throughout the season as volunteers, we cannot run a successful program without your help.  Some of the volunteer responsibilities include helping with gym set-up or clean-up after a match, working in the refreshment stand or keeping time or score at a scoring table during matches.  A sign-up sheet for volunteers will be available at the Parent’s Meeting on Wednesday, November 6 at 5:50 pm during practice. Practices and matches are required, with the exception of family obligations or illness.
