In the Groove

We are now in the regular season schedule. Great job for both teams on the big wins against Sobrato. Varsity now stands at 3-2 overall and 1-1 in the league. We have some important games this week against Westmont (away) and Leland (home). Keep up the great work.

Retreat-The retreat was AWESOME!!! You girls are hard-core and crazy dodgeball players. The puzzle pieces look great as well and will be shown at the alumni game on Sat. If you didn’t decorate a puzzle piece or still want to make hair ties and/or bracelets, we will give you the supplies this week.

Alumni Game-The alumni game is scheduled for this Sat from 3-5:30. Varsity will be playing, however JV is expected to attend. It is a lot of fun and you won’t want to miss it. There will be delicious food as well. You will be asked to bring something to share as well.

Buddies-We now have our buddies assigned. Each pair was carefully matched. Each week there will be a buddy “gift” assigned. There should be minimal cost involved and shouldn’t feel like a burden. Below are the assigned weeks:

Sept. 29-Oct. 3 (love note-a personalized encouraging note)
Oct. 6-10 (sweet treat)
Oct. 13-17 (decorate a tee-personalize a tee, boxers, bandana or similar)
Oct. 20-24-love note (this is homecoming week)
Oct. 27-31-(something to keep warm (scarf, gloves, socks)
Nov. 3-7(senior recognition week)

Buddy List:

First 2 preseason games.....check.
Leigh Tournament....check
Getting ready of play Leigh this Tuesday....check

Great job this weekend. It was an opportunity to continue to prepare for the upcoming season. Congrats to the all-tournament selections-Becks for varsity and Lindsay for JV. Way to go!

This Tuesday we play Leigh AT Leigh. Remember, we don’t have a bus and you cannot drive other players unless you have the
driver’s packet turned into the office.

This weekend is a full one. Both varsity and JV teams will be recognized at the halftime of the varsity football game this Friday. Be sure that you are there by the beginning of the second quarter in as much field hockey spirit wear as possible. We need about 2-4 more parent volunteers for both the JV and varsity game Snack Shack. Please email me at ASAP. JV workers need to be there by 3:45 and varsity helpers by 6:45.

Also, the BHS Flea Market is this Sat. and we need a ton more volunteers. There is an expectation that players help with fundraising efforts. This is a HUGE opportunity to raise money. We need people to work 8-10, 10-12 and/or 12-2 time slots. We also need parents to help with the BBQ and supervision. Also, feel free to donate items to sell. All sales will go directly to Branham Field Hockey.

Game #2 and Longhorn Tournament

On Tuesday, we play Lynbrook at home. Be sure to bring everything you need for the game and get enough food, water and sleep.

This weekend we have the Leigh Longhorn Tournament. Games are 25 min. halves for varsity and 20 min. for JV; both with a 5 min. half time. The schedule for the weekend is
here. Please look it over and let your coach know if you have any schedule conflicts.

Uniform/spiritwear order forms are due by Friday. Remember to take the form and money to the student store to order your items and be sure to staple the receipt to the order form and return it to Coach Tina.

We have several upcoming events and we need your help. Please fill out and return the
volunteer sign up form as soon as possible. Parents are needed to drive so fill out and turn in the Driver’s form into the office ASAP.

If you own money for the shinguards, just write a check for $25 (non-strap) or $30 (with strap) to Branham Field Hockey and your name will be crossed of the list.
