YOU MUST BE ON TIME TO MAKE THE BUS – We cannot wait on you to insure sufficient drive and warm-up time for the players. If you miss the bus, go on to school. You will be dropped from the dismissal list. A parent may not bring you to the course. If you do not show up on time, our team will have to play short a player, which will effect our team’s place the tournament.
NOTE: Sometimes the bus is a late arriving @ the complex due to transportation department snags, etc. So if you are running late, but close, it is a good idea to come on or call the coach.

3/10 <Saturday> Spartan Invitational @ Whitehawk – NO BUS – Arrive at course by 7:00
We stop to eat after the tournaments: Player meals usually involve Subway or similar fast food Players will receive from $7 to $8 for most meals. (Ci’s-Ci’s when available (IF WE PLAY WELL) (Bread and water when we play poorly) ( Just kidding )
We provide snacks and drinks during the day BUT it is recommended all players eat a good breakfast. We often have time to stop at MacDonalds or QT for breakfast in the morning if the players want to bring money for that.
INSURE THAT THE PLAYERS BRING WARM CLOTHING AND/OR RAIN GEAR. Stocking caps, winter gloves, etc. We often play in undesirable weather. (It takes a serious storm to stop play) a GOOD IDEA TO HAVE A SEPARATE BAG PACKED FOR ALL SEASON WITH FOUL WEATHER GEAR IN IT. Include dry socks and shoes perhaps. They can leave it in the bus and use as needed.
Arrival times back home fluctuate. FOR HIGH SCHOOL, WE ARE USUALLY HOME BETWEEN 4:00 & 5:00 DEPENDING ON HOW FAR WE TRAVEL TO PLAY.
Junior High tournaments usually end by 2:30 or 3:00. Girls are finished by noon and can leave the course with their parent. (Only their own parent) Boys can ride home with their parent also.
Instruct your Spartan to text or call when we are headed home. PLEASE – PLEASE make plans to meet the bus. Avoid keeping the coaches waiting at the complex waiting for parents. They cannot leave your child here alone.
