Reminder: signups next week, and a small change

Just a reminder that team signups are being held next week, on Tuesday and Thursday evening at Christ the King school, in room 222 (the 6th grade classroom, if you're familiar with the campus.) We'll be open for signups from 6:30pm-8:00pm on both nights.

Like years past, you can speed the process by showing up with completed forms, and having your checkbook and calendar with you. I've outlined what you need to turn in on the team web site:

If you're new to the team, please remember to bring a photocopy of your athlete's birth certificate or other legal proof of age. You will leave this copy with us to be added to the team files, and it will be destroyed when the athlete ages out of the program.

If you're not able to make either night, you may bring everything to the parent info meeting on Feb 11th. We'll have signup sheets there as well.

I'm tweaking the volunteer process a bit this year. With the exception of key meet jobs, we're trying an open signup process and assigned jobs. This year, families will sign up for the required number of shifts, and we will assign a meet job to you. We try to honor requests -- if you have a special fondness for working high jump, for example -- but I hope this will make like easier for all the parish volunteer coordinators. I appreciate your patience as we try this experiment! I'll talk more about this at the information meeting on Feb 11th.

Families who worked special team jobs last year have precedence for signing up for those jobs again this year: please see me at the signup nights.

Finally, we're always on the lookout for medical professionals who are able to work a few shifts at our meet's first aid station, tending to the inevitable scrapes, bumps, and overheated/underhydrated athletes. See me at signups if you can help out.

Looking forward to a great season!
