Dear Storm Family,

Last week was a very busy week! and as we go into our competing season it will not slow down! It is very important that the athletes get to practice as much as possible. For the next few weeks we will not have the track as much due to events at Saugus High.

This Saturday we will be having our "Mock" meet. This will help parents and athletes learn how the meets will run, and train you in what volunteers we need. All jobs are very easy to learn.  All families are required to volunteer 8 hours during the season so this will be the first opportunity to start your hours.  

We will start our on line sign up this week. You will get an email inviting you to sign up by Thursday

There is a calendar on our web site that has most of the practice and meet info on it. It is tentative and will be updated weekly. The schools some times make changes so please remember it is subject to change but we will try to keep it updated as much as possible every week.  
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.  
Twenty-Five Score Cards
STORM's first Fundraiser is here! The 25 Score Card is good at over 1000 merchants throughout SCV and LA including Jersey Mike's, Vincenzo's, Buca Di Beppo, Coldstone, Mountasia, Menchies, Color Me Mine, Office Max and so many more plus there's a Mobil app you can download with it too!

The cards will be $20 each! We are asking that each family be responsible for 2 cards at least (more if you can) can keep one for the family, sell both off, give them away to clients. Whatever is good for your family but we are requiring 2 cards per household.

There will be a Board Member at most practices with cards available and Team Roster to confirm your participation throughout the month of March.

Thank you so much and see you at the track!
