Athletic Website Quick Tips

Here are some quick tips for navigating our website.

 

To find your team page, roll over the "teams" link in the top horizontal menu, go to "Choose a team" and navigate to your child's team page. This will take you to your team's home page. Coaches will post information here such as squad assignments and tournament information.

  • On the left side of this page is your team roster. Here you can find classmates that are on the team. If you are logged into the website, you will be able to see contact information which is helpful if you need to find a ride for your child.
  • Also on the left side of your team page, you will see your team schedule. Here, you will see all the dates and locations of the practices and games. You can download the schedule into your home calendar which will automatically update when a change is made. Click on "options" and then go to "Calendar Feed" and select the download that will work for your device.

 

Please make sure you RSVP for ALL GAMES as early as possible. Our coaches spend a great deal of time creating line ups based on the kids that are there.

  • If you do not RSVP, then your child will not be included in the line up. If they show up to a game without an RSVP, play time will be reduce as the coaches will not completely alter the line up to accommodate you.
  • All team members are emailed an RSVP notice 3 days before the game. Please use this email to click "yes" or "no" and your attendance will be recorded.
  • You can also log in to rsvp for all the games that you know your attendance for. Go to your team page, then schedule. Next to the game, you will see a thumbs up icon. Click on this and select the green thumbs up for yes or the red thumbs down for no. You can also see who is attending if you want to arrange a carpool!

 

Volunteering: We really do need help from our parents to provide a great experience for our kids! We require all families to volunteer in some capacity and have many opportunities in each sport. To see the volunteer opportunities available, click on "volunteer" and then volunteer opportunities in the horizontal menu above. All sign ups are first come, first served, so sign up for your preferred choice ASAP! You will only be able to see the choices that are still available.

 

To edit your family profile, log into the website (click on "sign in" in the upper right corner of the website). Click on "My Account" in the upper right corner and then click on the name of the person you wish to edit. You can receive text notifications of any changes to the schedule as well as reminders of games and practices by selecting the provider you use next to your cell phone number. Don't forget to click "submit" at the bottom so that your changes are saved.

Sports and the Common Good

Sports and the Common Good
 

Pope Francis is a great sports fan. He appreciates the value of sports. He even called sports a “most noble vocation.” Why would he say that? Pope Francis with Carlos Tevez

Several reasons. The Pope said, “engaging in sports rouses us to go beyond ourselves and our own self interests in a healthy way; it trains the spirit in sacrifice.” Sporting events, ideally, “display beauty, generosity, and camaraderie.” He said that “the language of sports is universal; it extends across borders, language, race, religion, and ideology. It possesses the capacity to unite people.”

But Pope Francis is concerned that sports lose something when they become “big business.” Big business sports seek “victory at any cost” and “runs the risk of reducing athletes to mere merchandise for the increasing of profit.” When winning becomes everything and players are seen as objects, “harmony is broken.”

The Pope has a message for athletes too. Addressing players from the national football (soccer) teams of Italy and Argentina, Pope Francis challenged them: “You are very popular: people follow you very closely and not only on the field but also off it. This is a social responsibility!” He went on to say: “You are a role model for better or for worse. Be aware of this and be an example of loyalty, respect, and altruism. You are also builders of concord and social peace of which all are in such great need. You are a reference point for many young people and a living model of real values.”

We join Pope Francis in praying this month that all those involved in sports.

Reflection
In what ways am I challenged to keep sports in their proper perspective?

Scripture
1 Corinthians 9: 24-26 Run so as to win.
