We are just under a week from the beginning of the 2018-2019 season and below is some information to help as we get ready to start.
Online registration is open and will be the quickest way to sign up. Just go to the Anoka-Hennepin School District web page and go through your lock and key. If you are not able to complete through this process you are able to use the paper copy, which you can get online as well or pick up at the Activities desk in the main office of the high school.
The team jacket order is now posted on the right side of the blog. Click onto the page and on the link on that page. The store will be open until Midnight on Nov. 20th so we have a chance to have the jackets back by Winter Break, or at the latest Winter Camp. One thing of note, we are using a different company than in years past, so the jackets will be slightly different, but still the same design.
We are entering the time of year where there are many ski swaps. There are two that we will send people to. One is this weekend at Pioneer Midwest and you can find out more information at the following link: Pioneer Midwest Ski Swap. The other is on Saturday, Nov. 17 at Fort Snelling. We will be volunteering again at this, so if you are interested in helping, please let me know. It is a great opportunity for the skiers to help the ski community and learn more about the sport as well as look for equipment for themselves. We will have a sign up sheet next week at practice. More information on the ski swap can be found here: MYSL Ski Swap.
Lastly, we will be doing a grocery bagging day at Cub this year as a fundraiser. We will be at the Riverdale Cub on Tuesday, Nov. 20th from 4:00-8:00 (Two days before Thanksgiving). We will NEED to have the skiers helping that night and a few parents as well. There are a few parents already wanting to help, but if there are others, please let me know. We will have a sign up sheet next week for the skiers. We will have a couple of shifts to break it up as well as make sure we are getting more of the skiers involved.
I think that should cover things for now. As more information comes out, I'll put it on the blog. I am getting the schedule finalized, so that should be posted soon as well. We didn't get the conference schedule until last week so I am having to make some changes.
