Here are the important dates coming up in January/February. Please feel free to share with any other boys interested in trying out for the team. Announcements are also being made at GOHS to the students:
- THIS SATURDAY, January 11th, from 7 - 9am - Tryout #1. Coach Hawthorne will start the formal tryouts. (This early time was unfortunately the ONLY gym access we could get at GOHS) We will hold two early tryout dates in January: Saturday, January 11th, 7 - 9am, and Saturday, January 18th, 7 - 9am. If your son is not already playing a winter sport, he MUST attend at least one (preferably both) of these tryout dates.
-Saturday, January 18th, 7am - 9am - Tryout #2 -- again your son should attend either tryout #1 or Tryout #2 in January. The initial JV and Varsity team rosters will be chosen from these first two tryouts.
-Wednesday, January 22nd, 7pm - First parent meeting -- All parents should plan to attend this meeting in the GOHS Library for an overview of the season and team expectations from Coach Hawthorne. We will also distribute the team calendars, spirit pack, and important info.
-Thursday, January 30th - 6 - 8pm -- Fundraiser/Team Building Dinner -- Plan to have dinner with your teammates at Panda Express tonight! It's an optional fundraiser, with the chance to get the boys together as a team for the first time. Should be a fun night!
-Thursday, February 6th, 3 - 5pm -- Tryout #3/Team Practice -- This will be a practice for those already selected for the JV/Varsity teams, and the first tryout for those who are coming from a winter sport. A brief parent meeting will be held at the end of the tryout to provide info for new parents.
-Friday, February 7th, 3 - 5pm -- FINAL TRYOUT #4/Team Practice -- Final tryout date! Regular practice for those already on the teams.
Hopefully that gives you an overview of the next month - more details will be shared at the Parent meeting on January 22nd. In the meantime, please feel free to ask me any questions about the schedule or logistics - and if you are willing to help volunteer with the team, please let me know! We'll have a list of needs at the Parent meeting.
