Tuesday, March 9th all players from all levels will be participating in making a Snap-Raise video and each player will make an individual page for fundraising. If you haven't seen a Snap-Raise fundraiser before, it is an online fundraising platform - you can watch this brief video to get an idea of how it works https://youtu.be/I4iVPNkQMts.
To maximize the percentage we receive in the fundraiser we must have full participation from all players. Full participation is defined as all rostered players sending out their page to 20 email addresses. Please help your player make this list of friends and family email addresses in a note on their phone so they can come prepared to paste the addresses into their personal Snap! page.
9:00am on March 7th there will be a short training session at the Snack Shack at Chap for the Sophomore team. Freshman families will have a session the day of their first home game, March 23rd. JV and Varsity sessions will be upon request. All families are expected to volunteer for at least one shift during home games. Please contact our Snack Shack Chairs Nicola Nolan or Sarah Carew for questions.
