Paperwork Problems
Too Much Paperwork
We have a short list of problems that need to be corrected before we can certify our roster.

We will have a roster the practices, please check the roster for problems.   
Jelly Beans & Jolly Ranchers
Jelly Beans Parents we ask that you bring 2 bags of jelly beans or Jolly Ranchers.

At the end of each practice we give the kids a few jelly beans as a treat. For the kids with braces, we give them a Jolly Rancher. The kids must be heading out the gate in order to get them.  
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

Please be sure to check with your cell phone provider if you are having trouble connecting to our urgent alert text system. 

We will try to help you, but in most cases if you get an error trying to connect, I suggest you contact your customer service and see if there is some type of blocking on your phone preventing signing up for these types of text systems, I've been told that some games use text systems to bill your phone, our system will not bill your phone, we are paying for it.
