ICE BATHS

Thank you to all the parents that donated for the ice baths!  As of right now, we have covered the cost of the ice baths!  Thank you!

 LOCKER ROOM FANS

In order to keep circulation and eliminate the smell of the locker room, we are looking to purchase some locker room fans.  These fans would sit on top of the lockers and keep air moving to help with the smell.  We need 6 in the freshmen locker room, 4 in the JV locker room, and 6 in the varsity locker room.  That is a total of 16 fans.  The fans we are looking to purchase are similar to these:  https://www.amazon.com/B-Air-FIRTANA-20X-Multi-Purpose-Velocity/dp/B01M0X1SOY/ref=sr_1_9?keywords=fan&qid=1567444755&s=gateway&sr=8-9.  If you are interested in helping us purchase these items, let Coach McDowell know.

Thanks again for letting us coach your sons and we are looking forward to a great week!

GO FALCONS!
