TEXAS STATE HOMESCHOOL TRACK & FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS

Many thanks to everyone who volunteered to make the track meet a great success! Even though we did not get to finish all the races, everyone seemed to have a wonderful time.

And this is why we do it ...

"I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much for hosting yesterday’s track meet in Belton.

Because of your hard work, my daughter, who loves running, was able to compete in her very first track meet.
I did not even know such things would be possible for her as a homeschooler.  She ran as an independent, so 
thank you also for opening up the meet to kids like her who don’t have a team.  It was a really great experience
for her.  I know tremendous amounts of work and tireless volunteer hours went in to pulling
the meet together, so our sincerest thank you’s to you all.  Next year we will be proactive and see if we 
can also serve.

Hope you get some well deserved rest!  Christ was indeed glorified in your service!

Sincerely,

Christy Schooler
mother of runner, Rebecca Schooler (14G)"

VOLLEYBALL KICK-OFF
Calling all lady volleyball players!
It's that time again! Although you may have noticed that unfortunate circumstances prevented us from holding our annual summer camp this year, we are very excited to get back into the swing of things and get ready for the fall season! If you are age 12-18 we invite you to attend our 2014 kick-off on Thursday, August 7th and Friday, August 8th at First Baptist Church in Belton from 1-4 p.m. We look forward to seeing all our returning ladies as well as all who will be joining us this fall for the first time. Come out and take a look!
This season the CenTex Chargers will be requiring all athletes to have a physical before playing in any game. To that end, on Thursday, August 7, Dr. Melissa Nieland will join us near the end of our session to offer physicals to all who need them, for the price of $20. We will have physical forms available that day if you are interested. We will also need a birth certificate for each child, so you might be locating that document too.
Also, at the end of our session on Friday, we will be holding a mandatory parents' meeting to discuss issues of general concern to our team, i.e., fees and funds, parent participation, practice/playing time, etc. We highly encourage at least one parent to attend this meeting. If you simply cannot attend that day, please set up a time to meet with the coach/coaches at a later time to cover the meeting material. Please note that your child will not play in games until this meeting happens. It's nothing complicated; we just all need to be on the same page from the beginning. Thanks for your cooperation!
So, bring your ball (if you have one) and your water bottle, and, for those of you who are new, you should know, we have a dress code which includes shorts not more than 3 inches above the knee and shirts with sleeves. Thanks ahead of time for your cooperation in this matter also. Knowing what we know from last season and this summer, we are looking forward to a great 2014! Our game schedule begins on August 21, and that's not very far away. Please come join us! It's a great opportunity to grow!
Thanks,
Sena Maddux
Head Coach, CenTex Lady Chargers
