I hope everyone is working hard. This could be our best year yet and we have had many solid seasons the last 7 years.
I can’t wait to get started! With this strongs senior class and our few very experienced underclassmen, we could really make a mark in 6A golf.
REMEMBER: YOUR HARD WORK & YOUR VERY SUPPORTIVE PARENTS GOT YOU TO THIS POINT. No matter who is coaching the high school team YOU & YOUR PARENTS deserve most of the credit for your accomplishments in golf. Bixby Schools have done a great service to you all in supporting your goals. Never forget that!
To those JV players working hard to be the next varsity team, DO NOT SLACK OFF! No matter how far we go This year, there is always a better year or greater accomplishments. Make that your goal!
You are all an important part of my life… Never forget that!
Students and parents,
All students 7th-12th grade who will participate in ANY school sponsored activities (sports, fine arts, and school clubs) must complete a drug test prior to participation in that activity. There will be a two- step process to pay for the drug test and choose a time to come to the Home of the Spartans (HOTS) and take the test. Students should register and pay for their drug test online as soon as possible but no later than June 15th. Failure to do so will result in a loss of participation in any activity until drug testing process is completed.

Follow these steps to register and pay:

You may contact Mr.Bittle, the Athletic Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org , Stephanie Blackwell, Director of Athletic Programs, at email@example.com or Mrs. Wood, in the athletic office, at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.

Please follow the link below to inquire on PGA Junior Memberships. There are plenty of competitive opportunities through out the summer with the junior PGA.
PGA Junior Membership
We have reached a deal with Whitehawk for a player’s camp May 30th – June 2nd.
This camp is not for beginning players but will be designed to enhance a player’s course management as well as improve swing mechanics.
Camp hours: 7:45 to 12:30.
The Camp offers players small group instruction, both on the course and on the range. The ratio of instructors to students is 5 to 1. This will allow for comprehensive swing mechanics, Chipping & putting instruction and playing experience. Instructors will be high school coaches, a PGA professional and college players.
Campers will have 2 hours a day of on course instruction and 2 hours a day of range and practice green instruction. A total of 16 hours actual instruction with 2 hours of rules instruction during an end of day lunch included in the camp cost.
Additionally, campers will receive a Spartan player’s pass for 10 rounds of golf & 10 buckets of range balls to be used at Whitehawk in the summer.
The is primarily intended for Junior high Level and Junior Varsity players.
The cost of the camp is $275. As space is limited to keep player/instructor ratios in line, a $100 deposit needs to be paid ASAP.
The course has to be paid for course use as well as the free golf rounds. If you consider the free golf has a value of around $200, the instruction cost is a bargain. Campers will hopefully use up their playing passes before June is over and we have an agreement with the course to sell us additional reduced green fees.
