We would like the parents of the gremlins to attend the 5:45 meeting, you may bring older siblings to this meeting.


You are welcome to attend either meeting if you have a scheduling conflict.

Urgent Text Alert System 
  If you would like to join our Urgent Alert Text System, on your cell phone text the word "STORMTF" to 41411 and you should be greeted with a welcome message, we use this system rarely for very important urgent alerts, for example, We cancel practice early due to unforeseen circumstances.

It's been brought to my attention that if your using T-Mobile, you may have to contact them to have Text Message Blocking shut off while you enroll. I believe once your enrolled you can turn it back on. Click here for more information
