Requests from Coach Schwallier:
Parents and Parents:
1. Make sure players have their stuff 100% ready to go before they leave for prom. Ideally, have bag/shoes, etc in the vehicle they are going to drive to transportation in the morning.
2. Make sure you are up and out the door on time. We are going to leave from transportation as late as I feel we can afford so the girls get more sleep. So, if anyone is late in the morning, it will hurt us more than normal.
3. Make sure you have enough layers. It's always colder than you think out there. Several girls will already be tired from Friday night, let's try to avoid a slew of sick girls on Monday:)
Ok, this tournament was scheduled so we can begin to see how we stack up against the best teams on the East side of Michigan. A good day by our girls could mean seeds for them at the State Tournament. Let's have fun and kick some butt!!!!! Then let's go home and get some rest:)
