Greetings Cardinal Football Parents!
It’s time to kick off another great season of Cardinal Football! This note contains a few items of interest that will help support our team and keep you informed!
There will be a FALL SPORTS PARENT MEETING for all athletes and a parent or guardian on Wednesday, August 15. Dinner begins at 5:30 in the food court, followed by an ALL sports meeting in the high school gym at 6:00, and concluding with INDIVIDUAL sports meetings in assigned rooms.
Homecoming is Friday, September 21 against Central Montcalm, and Senior Night will be our LAST Varsity HOME game on Friday, October 12, against Grant.
Before each “away” game parent volunteers pack sack lunches for the players that consist of a ham, salami & cheese sub, chips, fruit, drink and a treat. $20 will cover this awesome sack lunch this season for ALL away games. Attached is an envelope to return the $20 fee (CASH ONLY, please.) Money will NOT be accepted unless it is in a sealed envelope and is DUE by Friday, August 17. The envelope has a place for contact info. Please indicate if you’d like to be added to the private BR Touchdown Club Facebook group, or added to the BRHS Football Remind App group, so you can receive up-to-date text messages or emails on scheduled events or changes. You can sign up for Remind on your own, as well – the info is attached.
Each week, the team comes together for a team meal, the day before the JV game. Ideally 4-6 families will work together to provide this meal for approximately 60 people (ALL players and coaches). If you have a date preference, and/or great meal and team of parents in mind, please let Lisa Roach know by August 17. Be sure your athlete returns his envelope to receive details on this information. This schedule will be distributed the week of August 21.
Team snacks will also be assigned. Ideally 2-4 parents will work together to provide a light snack (apples, oranges, or granola bars, etc, and a drink) for the ride home. Again, if you have a date preference, please contact Lisa Roach by August 17. This schedule will also be distributed the week of August 21.
If you’d like to volunteer to help make the lunches or have any other questions, please contact Lisa Roach at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our first scrimmage is on Thursday, August 16 in Comstock Park. JV leaves the school at 9:00am and plays at 11:00am. Varsity leaves the school at 11:00am and plays at 1:00pm. Busing will be provided.
Don’t miss the Cardinal Sports Boosters meeting on Monday, August 20 at 6:00pm in Rm 115. Many hands make light work.
We’re looking forward seeing you in the stands as we cheer on our boys! GO CARDINALS!
