                Wow what a weekend!!  
For those of you who were there you were able to participate in the largest 2 day meet anywhere in the Country for youth. Congratulations to all the athletes and Coaches. Now for some not so good news. 

A  few days ago one of our athlete and their parents went to the Saugus track at a time that we were not scheduled to practice. They asked the custodian to unlock the gate. When they were told by the custodian that they could not practice because they were not on the schedule and there was not permit on file with the district, they began to argue with him. They stated that they were with Storm and they could practice anytime, and then jumped the fence and went on the track. This is never permitted. As a team we work very hard to secure practice times and are only allowed to be on the track at that time. This can put our whole team in jeopardy of not having a place to practice this year, and in future years!  Please never represent the Storm team at anytime other than our permitted time. Let me be very clear.


Saugus High is the only way we can continue the Storm Team. Please do not go there any other time than official practice times. 

This week we host the meet again and will  need a lot of volunteers. There are a lot of families that have not sign up yet. We will have to assign families that have not fulfilled their time if we need help. It takes us all to run things smoothly.  Thank you all who have helped so much! You will receive an email from Mark Cruz about signing up for the sign up genius.

The medal is engraved with the student's name, year and symbol of the sport in which he/she is participating. A special President's Award Medal is presented to players that maintain straight A's.
