TBird team photos were mailed to all coaches last week. By now, all parents should have your photos. Coach, if you did not receive your photos in the mail, please contct TBird coordinator Pam Naber. Parents, if you have any problems with the photos you received, please contact the photographer, All-Star-Digital
TBird girls in grades 1-2 have 4 teams which practice and play in a unique format. All 4 teams practice and scrimmage together in a pickup format during the week. In January, they formed teams and started to play "for real". Girls for all 4 teams are shown here at the LW Girls game on 1/31 where they scrimmaged at halftime and got to meet the varsity players. (Kelly Pate Coordinator)
Boys 1st and 2nd grade teams scrimmage at 1/26 LE Boys basketball game and meet the players. These are our future Lakota stars. (Coaches Fred Bontrager & Mike Goldman)
Bird Night at Lakota West vs Lakota East Boys, 12/15. Flight 3rd grade boys playing at halftime. TBird players who wore their jerseys got in free to the game and got free refreshements at halftime. We had 45 TBirds at the game.
This year, we formed 103 teams in grades 1-12 -- a new record for the TBird organization. THANK YOU for all the volunteers who stepped up to coach. Without you, we would have had to turn away players. The TBird board and division coordinators also did a great job getting us organized and forming teams to get the season rolling. Always a very a challenging task.
Schedules for the CPYBL teams are now available. You will find the schedules by going to the CPYBL website and searchig for your teams (see the link on the Left Hand side of this webpage)
Schedules for the boys B1-2 in-house division are on the web. Schedules for the girls G2-3 in-house division will be available at the end of December (recall that the first few practices will be to scrimmage)
FYI. A Pre-season Coaches meeting was held on Tuesday 9/12. The meeting presentation is HERE.
