2024 CALENDAR OF ALL EVENTS

Here is a printable calendar of all team activities. This calendar includes meets for middle school, JV, and varsity. It also includes activities such as fundraisers, pictures, and awards. Meets are color coded for each level of competition.



MEET VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Unlike other sports, track and field relies on volunteers to help with home track meets. No experience is required, just a willingness to help. Most positons simply supervise workers and record event performances. We are flexible with placement so you can watch your Rocket compete in person. We will meet as a group before the meet to see where everyone would like to help.

Volunteers needed for the following meets:

Tuesday, April 30 (Varsity / JV) - MS wiill be in Pine Island
Friday, May 3 (JV / MS)
Monday, May 13 (V / JV / MS)

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!


APRIL 8-15: YE OLDE BUTCHER SHOPPE FUNDRAISER

As we come back from spring break, it's time to kick-off our second fundraiser. This fundraiser, we will be working with Ye Olde Butcher Shoppe. We have worked with Ye Olde Butcher Shoppe for several years and look forward to another great experience.

For seven days, our team will offer various items from Ye Olde Butcher Shoppe to family, friends, neighbors, and anyone else interested in helping our program. Bundles and individual items are of interest to anyone who shops for food. 

In the past, items sold were delivered by our team. This year, Ye Olde Butcher Shoppe has offered to have orders picked-up at their store, making it much easier for our team and supporters of our team.

Instructions for the fundraiser will be given at our team meeting on Monday, April 8. Those selling four or more packages qualify for a free dinner to our catered awards banquet at the end of the season.
