A MESSAGE FROM OUR WISD ATHLETIC DIRECTOR
October 5, 2015
Dear Kangaroo Parents and Fans:
Last week there were some issues during a contest concerning crowd control and fan behavior. The example set by each of you during contests will be a factor in how your student/athlete deals with situations in both life and ballgames. To eliminate future issues, I am asking that each of you deal with this matter by policing your actions and words during a contest.
Our desire is to win, but we must be an example to our children. We want each of you to enjoy your experience at ballgames.
