SPRING FEES DUE NOW

We still have 17 players who have not paid  SPRING FEES.  I need those check on deposit ASAP in order to commit PO’s to the H.S. JV and ‘ Junior High B team events.  This money also pays for food after tournaments as well as our spring golf course fees.

IF YOU HAD A HOLE SPONSOR IN OUR FALL SCRAMBLE, LET ME KNOW WHO IT WAS.  You do not owe fees if so.  (Sometimes a Hole sponsor is credited to the wrong player and I need to correct that in my files)

If you cannot pay your Spartan’s fees at this time, let me know what you need to do. I want everyone participating but we schedule enough events for all 70+ golfers to have course use privileges &  play tournaments but can only do so if we raise the additional funds.

YOU MAY NOT WORK-OUT IN STREET CLOTHING OR STREET SHOES. (ON THE INDOOR TURF OR THE YOGA STUDIO. YOU MAY NOT PARTICIPATE IN TEAM RUNS WITHOUT PROPER SHOES.

FAILING TO PREPARE FOR AND PARTICIPATE IN YOUR ACTIVITY WILL EFFECT YOUR RANKING STATUS. YOU CAN BE PENALIZED MATCHES IN THE SPRING AND/OR HAVE TO MAKE UP THE MISSED WORKOUTS. WE PAY FOR THE MARTIAL ARTS AND YOGA INSTRUCTOR’S TIME: USE IT!

WEATHER PERMITTING, WE MAY BREAK FROM THE WORKOUT ROUTINE AT TIMES. BE PREPARED TO GO TO A COURSE, IN SMALL PRE-ASSIGNED GROUPS. KEEP YOUR CLUBS AND GOLF ATTIRE AVAILABLE. (In a complex locker or in your car)  I WILL WATCH FOR FAVORABLE WEATHER PATTERNS AND ADVISE THOSE PLAYERS WHO ARE PLAYING AS EARLY IN THE DAY AS POSSIBLE.

PRIVATE LESSONS WILL USUALLY TAKE PRIORITY OVER WORK-OUT SCHEDULES. (Either at your home course or the Complex)  Set up lessons as compatible with your off-season schedule as possible. (IN OTHER WORDS, DON’T INTENTIONALLY SKIP WORK-OUTS OR TEAM RUNS!)

Some golfers may “test out” of team runs. Some golfers may be prevented from certain activities based on medical issues.

MANDATORY SATURDAY MORNING PRACTICES WILL START DEC 2nd.  WATCH FOR THAT SCHEDULE.

HIGH SCHOOL & JUNIOR HIGH can be a very competitive teams this spring. (BOYS & GIRLS)  LET’S MAKE SURE NOBODY OUTWORKS US THIS WINTER!

PRACTICE INFORMATION

We do practice in cold weather, within limits. Our targeted temperature is 50 degrees, but wind can effect that temperature, of course.  Decisions to change plans are made between 1:00 & 2:00 so check your messages or website postings.

YOU MUST BE PREPARED FOR THE TEMPERATURE HOWEVER, OR YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PRACTICE.  (You should have cold weather gear in your car and/or golf bag)

  1. Wear your hoodies up or a stocking cap
  2. Have a wind jacket AND wind pants or sweat pants. (NOT ONLY YOGA PANTS)
  3. Get winter gloves

Remember, When we start tournament play in March, the weather will be cold & windy…… (SOMETIMES RAIN OR LIGHT SNOW)

Again, be responsible and prepared. If you don’t properly plan to play or practice in the conditions that exist,  you should not try to play. You will be dropped from your assigned matches. All play before Dec. 1st is voluntary BUT after Dec. 1st, practices are mandatory.

 

SPARTAN GOLF MISSION STATEMENT

Participation on the Spartan Golf Team is designed to offer a student a school athletic  experience that offers a lasting impact on his or her life. The sport of golf is a ‘Lifetime sport” that can be played well into adulthood and even into a persons retirement years.  The specific nature and physical requirements to play  golf are such that most students can participate, even those without the significant “physical ability” to participate in impact sports or sports requiring speed or strength. The sport does however, promote and build strength, stamina and overall fitness levels in students.

A Spartan Golfer will have repeated opportunities to exhibit  “Existing personal character”  or develop appropriate traits in areas including but not limited to:  a) Self imposing rules of the game violations   b)  Personal Integrity & Honesty in score keeping    c)  Exhibiting high level of sportsmanship in victory or defeat   d) Their interest and ability to represent their parents as well as Bixby High School as outstanding student athletes.

While the goal of all school team sports, in part, is to win championships, a primary goal of the Spartan Golf Team is to develop outstanding young men and women and help to prepare them for life after high school.  Regardless of how well an individual Spartan athlete does on the high school golf course, if a student learns to always give their best effort and demonstrate a high level of sportsmanship & integrity at all times,  then that student’s high school sports team experience will have been a complete and total success.
