Dear Storm Family,



Jelly Beans

Jelly BeansAt the end of each practice we reward the kids with a small amount of Jelly Beans. We are running out of Jelly beans, I'd like to ask each family to bring in 1 bag of Jelly Beans so we don't run out.


We have plenty of Jolly Ranchers, so please only bring Jelly Beans.

This Race is a Pre-season fundraiser for the Conference, it is not mandatory but, will be a great warm up race for the athletes, Storm will register all athletes so no need to do that, but it does have an additional fee of $5.00 per athletes, Please bring it to practice this week if you will attend. The Open 5K race is for all High School and adults who would like to run. Gremlins will run the 2K, and Bantam, Midget and Youth will run combined in the 3K. this race is not used for Conference standings but is a great warm up for all athletes. PLEASE look at the attached flyer for start times.

Stormwear Pick-up 
Stormwear will be at practice for purchase, also if you ordered Stormwear that will also be available for pick up on Monday September 1st during practice.
Next Monday we will be having our Lap-a-thon at Central Park @ 5:30 pm, Please be sure to arrive early.

This event is our primary fund raiser for our program. We require all athletes to participate in this event to help us off set the high costs of running this program.
The opt out donation is $40.00 and you could simply fill out the form and attach the opt out fee. Otherwise the kids are to seek help from family friends, and members (such as aunts, uncles, and grandparents, and other family friends such as church families).

On Monday September 8 the kids will run laps at central park on the dirt trail, while we are playing music through our PA system. We will count their laps. Some kids seek a per lap donation such as $2.00 per lap, They then have ran their laps and are able then to go back and get the funds from their donors and then turn those funds in, its fun for the kids and it helps our program very much.

We also will choose a grand prize for the athlete who raises the most funds by our deal line to turn in the funds.
