Help keep our gyms clean!

Parents
Both Hayden Middle School and Hayden Elementary School have been extremely good to our park basketball program by allowing us full access to their gyms during the season. Without them, we would not be able to provide a basketball program for your kids. 
With that in mind, please clean up any trash around you when using the gym for practice and/or games. Also, during practice at either gym, please do not allow your children to play with the schools equipment or go on the stage. These gyms are used as classrooms on a daily basis and they should not have to come in each morning and clean up after us. 
If we don’t keep the gyms clean, we will lose access to them and won’t be able to provide a basketball program for your kids any longer so please help by doing your part. 
Thanks

Basketball Evaluations Schedule

Parents

Basketball evaluations will be held at the ELEMENTARY SCHOOL  gym at the following dates and times:

6u co-ed: Thursday, November 12 @ 6pm
8u boys: Tuesday, November 10 @ 6pm
10u boys: Thursday, November 12 @ 7pm
10u girls: Tuesday, November 17 @ 6pm
12u boys: Thursday, November 12 @ 8pm
13u girls: We will only have one team in this age group, so we will  not have evaluations.  You should receive a call from your coach by the end of this week
15u boys: Tuesday, November 10 @ 8:15pm

We are aware that Tuesday night is the ceremony for Upward Sports at Crossroads.  If your child has to be at Crossroads that night, please bring them to evaluations early and let me know when you get there so we can put these kids at the front of the line and let them go first.  They should be done no later than 6:15.

Due to the fact that the elementary gym does not have running water, restrooms will not be available.  Also, if you bring your child something to drink that night, please bring water only.  If Gatorade or sodas are spilled in that gym, it is very difficult to clean.

We also ask that you leave basketballs at home.

If you have any questions, please email me at shealayton@bellsouth.net
