Picture date is set for Thursday November 2nd. As Jodi gets order forms ready we will send them home with your son during the evals so you are prepared to order what you would like on November 2nd. Each player will be a part of their team picture and get a head-shot, regardless of whether they purchase pictures from Jodi. I highly recommend her pictures.
We really need to know who plans on attending an how many tickets you will be using. You don't have to pay for them now but I have to let the Bucks know asap what to hold for us.
YOUTH NIGHT WILL BE FRIDAY JAN 12--Details will be sent out as the date approaches. All players get in free that night with their jersey on and will have a series of activities to participate in. This year we are bringing back Elementary school night on the same evening. A night filled with fun and excitement will be designed to showcase and reward your son's for their participation in our FBBA programming.
FAQ's from registration
1--the calendars will feature pictures from this year's FBBA players and will be November of this year until October of next year.
2--if there is enough people that purchase tickets for the Bucks game, we will get a bus or 2 to take everyone down. As we get a better idea on the amount of people going, we will communicate.
3--People sponsoring or purchasing fundraising items from your child can pay with credit cards. Our website is in the process of getting a donation button on our website where they can just go directly and pay. They will be required to put what their payment is for and who it goes towards.
4--I have been asked if someone can just donate money to our program to help with the fundraisers. Definitely and there are 2 approaches they can take. 1--we have business sponsorship/marketing agreements that allows their business to be advertised during all of our youth events with our new LED scoreboards that are arriving at the end of the month. 2--flat donations can be made in a child's name, I would recommend they add that on to their free throw a thon income.
5--shooting shirts, t-shirts, basketballs, backpacks, socks, shoes purchased during registration will be delivered to your child as it arrives. We will communicate when mass amounts come in so you can look for at at your child's practice.
