We are excited to get the season started and what better way than to have a party!
We have about 70 players plus one or two parents for each player, plus 12-14 coaches, so it will be a rowdy evening. We will do the pizza and meetings in two waves so that each area doesn't get too crowded. It is a good opportunity to meet the parents with whom you will be carpooling, sitting in a gym all day, and even traveling to other parts of the country!
- Wednesday, January 10, 2018 from 6:30 pm-9:00 pm
- Mickey McDougall Gym
- Pizza provided by the Stars; all other food to be brought by players as described below
- Volunteers required: We need parents to help set up and clean up. Please let your coaches know if you will be volunteering for set up or clean up. If you are helping with set up, please be at the venue by 6:00 pm.
Coaches will have a team meeting with the players and parents to outline expectations, review their coaching styles and emphasize the Stars Philosophy, Etiquette and Code of Conduct for players and parents. Please read this document prior to the season opener.
