Big Rapids Girls’ Summer Basketball & Softball

Dear student-athletes and parents/guardians,

The purpose of this letter is to welcome you to Big Rapids High School and high school basketball and softball and to go over the summer calendar. We are extremely excited about summer! Attached you will find a schedule and information to help outline the opportunities available this summer. These events are not required and do not guarantee a spot on one of the Big Rapids teams next season, but are intended to provide each player with many chances to improve. Taking advantage of these opportunities is the best way to become a better player.

Next season, each student-athlete will be evaluated on a variety of factors to
determine squad placement. These factors include (but are not limited to):
skill set, understanding of the game, attitude and coachability, ability to remember and execute plays, effort put forth in practice, position needs, and team chemistry. Attendance in the summer is a great way for your athlete to demonstrate some of these qualities and show her dedication to the sport and program.

Many summer events do not cost your athlete anything, but some of the team
camps require payment. If the cost is a financial burden for your family, please
contact us as soon as possible so arrangements can be made. We want every
student-athlete to be able to participate regardless of financial circumstances.
Please make all checks payable to Big Rapids Athletics and do not hesitate to
contact us with any questions.

Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns!
Go Cardinals!

Coach Haist and Coach Thompson
