Fall 2014 Picture Day Saturday, September 27!

Please plan on having your team have their pictures taken on Saturday, Sept. 27th. Your coaches have the picture schedule and should be letting you know when to arrive.  The pictures are scheduled to be taken indoors so the weather shouldn’t play a factor!

This is another fundraising option for us as a portion of the proceeds from the pictures are given to our region and we use that money to help fund the trophies at the end of the year (end of Spring session).  We encourage the participation of all teams and the head coach gets a free gift.  Remember that we only do team pictures in the Fall.

Please arrive 5 to 10 minutes before your scheduled picture time to help make things go smoothly.

Contact your coach if you have any questions regarding pictures.
