Uniform Committee Volunteers

The uniform committee is looking for volunteers to help with laundering and organizing throughout the season. This dirty consists of taking a few uniforms home to wash, placing them back in the uniform bags, and returning them to school before the next game. We anticipate no more than 4-5 launderings throughout the season.

The more volunteers we get, the less work there is for everyone! Please contact the Uniform Committee Chair, Emily Lachance, to volunteer: text/call 830-734-3005 or email at
