Hope all the dad's had great Father's Day yesterday! Sorry I didn't get the update out yesterday, but the day got away from me.
Here's the schedules for the rest of the week and some notes. Coach may "call an audible" and make changes without giving me a head's up, so if your player gets something different from coach or if coach tweets out an update, please go with his word over mine!
Tuesday & Wednesday: Harrisonville Camp - Arrive at OE 6:45am; Buses depart @ 7am. Camp ends around 12:30pm. Should arrive back at OE @ 1:30pm.
Thursday: Weights 7am - 8am; Conditioning 8am-10am
Tuesday: 7am-8am in WEIGHT ROOM ONLY
Thursday: 7am - 8am Conditioning on Field; 8am-9am in weight room
NOTE: Next week, freshmen will have Team Camp from 10am-12pm - IN ADDITION to the normal summer workout/conditioning schedule. There will be be an hour "downtime" on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday for the Freshmen. Look for an email from Michael Scoma for some additional information on volunteers needed for this time slot.
Varsity Camp Fees: If you have not paid for camp fees, please do so as soon as possible. Attached is the form along with payment information. If you have questions or any issues, please contact Jeremey Geihsler (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Team Spirit Wear: Steph Herl is working with Olathe T-Shirt & Trophy on the final designs and products for spirit wear. We're hoping to have the store open in the next few weeks. The new logos are really good and will look great on the apparel!
Sign-Up Genius: I've created a Sign-Up Genius for everyone to be able to take a look at the committees that are available for families to volunteer for. As you will see, it takes a lot more than the 7 board members to do everything needed to support the team. It's a great opportunity to meet other teammates' families and help out the team. If you have any questions as to what any of the volunteer opportunities entails, do not hesitate to send me an email and I can get you more details. I guarantee it's probably less of a commitment than you think it is! And the more people that sign up to help, the more responsibilities can be spread around!
I want to thank both HyVee and Olive Garden who have both signed on again this season to provide two team meals each! Olive Garden wanted me to make sure the players know that they are always looking for committed, team players to join their team and have open positions available if anyone is still looking for summer work!Zaxby's has also resigned on as a sponsor and will be the exclusive sponsor of the Zaxby's Freshmen of the Week.... More details on the that coming soon! We will be having a Zaxby's spirit night in early August like last year (but they promised to have more staff on hand this year). Additionally, we will be having a "head to head" challenge with Olathe South during "South Week" at the Olathe Zaxby's location where we can win money for the OE athletic department. We'll have more details on that as we get closer to "South Week." We are also trying to get the Zaxby's Food Truck back to OE at some point...... I know that was a BIG HIT last year.
