Fan Wear / Gaitors / Masks

Thank you to those who responded regarding a bulk purchase of neck shields/gaitors with the Firebird logo. Not quite enough interest to support a minimum 50 order and $60 setup fee. Instead, I've added a few options to our Fan Wear site. Every newsletter has a button under the Firebird Resources section (scroll down) to take you to our Fan Wear site.


The Fan Wear site needs some updating. Items come available and get discontinued all the time. Would anyone be interested in playing pseudo shopper and setting us up with more logo items in our store? Contact Leslie for the login.


I've also ordered face shields that attach to the player's helmet. Breathable on the field, but some more protection.

INCLEMENT WEATHER REMINDER

We will still practice if it’s wet or raining, but if the fields are extremely soggy we will cancel. If it is lightning in the vicinity, we will cancel for safety. If practice is already in session the coaches will move the players to safe cover. We will issue notice via Remind (text) and Facebook that it’s time to get the players early, or that we have to cancel. Email doesn’t work well with large distribution groups on a cell phone so please be sure to check your texts and/or Facebook for an update if there’s any question.
