Boy Bolts in College
Important Golf Team Announcements
August 4, 2014Northmont High School - Boys Golf
With two days of tryouts under our belt and one more day to go I felt it fitting to make some important announcements regarding some urgent items that we will be encountering in the next few days. Please pay close attention to the following dates and times:
Tuesday August 5th - final day of tryouts. Teams will be made. Players will be given all additional paperwork that needs to be completed upon the end of tryouts. All paperwork must be completed and a $60.00 pay to play check needs to accompany this paperwork. Please make checks payable to the Northmont Athletic Department. All paperwork will be handed in to coach Hannahan and coach Harlow at our player meeting on August 6th.
Wednesday August 6th - Player Meeting 2:00pm - coach Harlow's room in the high school
At this meeting we will be handing in all additional paperwork and $60.00 pay to play check. The coaches will discuss team rules, the athletic code of conduct, and important USGA rules with the players. We will pass out all 2014 uniform shirts, hats, etc at this meeting. Players only need to attend this meeting.
Wednesday August 6th continued: 3:30pm - Team Poster Picture/Team Photo - Northmont Football Stadium. We will keep the boys at the team meeting until it is time to adjourn to the stadium for our poster picture and team photo. We should be done between 4:15 and 4:30pm. Parents please arrive at the stadium at 4:15pm to pick your child up following pictures. IMPORTANT NOTE: All poster sponsor information needs to be turned in at the player meeting on Wednesday. We need the business card of the sponsor that you found so we can get our posters printed ASAP. It takes one week to get the posters back to us. We will give those to the boys to distribute when they have been given to the coaches. Thank you for seeking at least one poster sponsor.
Wednesday August 6th continued: 6:00pm PARENT MEETING @ HIGH SCHOOL COMMONS - We need your golfer and at least one parent to attend this MANDATORY meeting. Please bring one side item (salad, chips, pasta salad, etc.) to share. The girls team is providing desserts and the Northmont Golf Parents Association is providing pizza and drinks. At this meeting we will discuss ohsaa and academic eligibility. We will discuss membership in the Northmont Golf Parents Association. We will discuss our annual Thunder Classic Charity Golf Outing that benefits the golf program and our annual scholarship fund. We will be selling golf team merchandise for parents to purchase. Please remember your checkbook. This meeting should last about an hour and a half.
Thank you so much for reading this post and being aware of ALL of the important items coming up. We need all paperwork and pay to play checks returned by the player meeting to ensue that your child will be able to participate on the golf team in 2014. Matches start Thursday August 7th so it is imperative that we have the mandatory player and parent meeting on the 6th. Please return all forms in the envelope we send home with your son. I will be at the parent meeting Wednesday night. Coach Harlow will give his contact information and early season practice information to the JV players at the player meeting Wednesday afternoon. He will be out of town Wednesday evening.
I look forward to an intense final day of tryouts on Tuesday. Please remind your son to bring plenty of water and sunscreen. It was very hot todsy out on the course today.
One final item: this website will be shut down on August 11th. Our new website will be up and running by then. PLEASE download and print the golf team Master Schedule from the documents section of this website before August 11th. That has all of the JV and Varsity match and practice dates listed. You will all be added to the one call now phone list for automated phone announcements pertaining to the Golf Team. If you find that you are not receiving those phone messsges, please contact the high school athletic office. The athletic secretary Dawn Yantis will get you set up. This should already be done in advance so you don't need to do anything now unless you find out that you are not receiving phone announcements. I will send a sample announcement later this week.
