Important General Procedures: 
* Regardless of how your child arrived at the competitions, you are responsible for picking them up at the conclusion of the event.  Please be considerate about being on time, as our coaches are required to stay onsite until all players have been picked up. If you have arranged for another family member/friend/babysitter, etc... to pick them up, please stress to them how important it is to be on time.
 
* When picking up your child, you must go into the school to retrieve them. No runner will be released to the street without a parent present. If your child needs to leave practice early, you must contact the coach(es) and personally let the them know you are picking them up. No runner will be released without a parent present.
 
Additional Requests:
* We are in need of at least 2 team parents, and/or one carpool coordinator. 
 
* The main duty of the team parent is to help with carpooling, organizing post-competition oranges/snacks (if desired), and coordinating post-season pizza/awards party, as well as working with the coaches in any way they need help.
