Athletic Director's Dispatch
December 22, 2017
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of the Athletics staff at CCS! I am thankful for your children and their participation in Basketball and Cheer this year.
Our Basketball teams had a great week! Varsity Boys beat Vineland Prep on Monday, Middle School Girls got their first win of the season over Cape Christian on Tuesday, and our Varsity Girls beat OLMA on Thursday - allowing 0 points in the 4th Quarter!! Middle School Boys fought hard against a talented Cape Christian team on Tuesday, and will hopefully be triumphant at their next meeting in January. The Cheerleaders did a great job at their first game of the season on Monday, and I look forward to seeing their half-time show in the new year!
Over break, the Varsity boys and girls will be having practice at CCS. The girls are practicing on Wednesday, 12/27 from 10 am-noon. The boys are practicing on Wednesday and Thursday 12/27-12/28 from 6-8 pm. Attendance at these practices is strongly encouraged. We understand that family time comes first, but having practice time is important to keep conditioning and skill at the necessary levels for return to play the first week of January.
If you are still looking for a last minute Christmas gift, our Fan-Cloth fundraiser is still open. We are about 10 items short of the minimum order currently, so if you were thinking you missed the opportunity to order some basketball gear, now is your chance! I am going to close the fundraiser on Friday, 12/29. Click here to order.
As we look to January, the schedule of home and away games becomes very busy. Please keep in contact with your coach and check our school website for changes to game and practice schedules as necessary. I am thankful for the parents who have volunteered to help so far, but we are still in need of volunteers to help at home games. We need one volunteer to take admission and two for the snack bar each night. Thank you to Barb Devalerio for working and planning the snack bar, which should be open for all varsity games going forward. If any middle school parents would like to volunteer to coordinate for the middle school games, I would appreciate it. We could definitely use food and drink donations to sell. Proceeds from admissions and the snack bar help to fund the athletic program, including paying our coaches and the referees.
This Google doc has the schedule for volunteers. Please check it and let me know when you can be available to help.
Thank you for reading this long-winded email in the rush of pre-Christmas craziness. I hope that this holiday season is relaxing and joyful for your family.
