Hebron Varsity Football Parents
Holly and Lesa will create a group text 2 weeks prior to the event - and signups will stop at that date.
It is tradition each week before the Varsity game, parents set out snack bags with a motivational message attached in front of each player's locker. We would love your help to make this year extra special!
There is NO limit on the amount of people that can help. The way we see it, the more help = the more goodies our boys get = the better they play.
Plan for about 75 bags each week. (This includes all players, our equipment manager Jake Foughty, and a few extras for the boys that may be moved up for a specific game).
Because the boys have 4th period football and team dinner, snack bags will be set out Wednesday night around 5:30-5:40 after practice. The bags will need to be assembled before you access the locker room to distribute Wednesday nights.
Please plan on a theme (could be related to the opposing team or some other creative idea), motivational tag, snacks, and a drink for each player. Pinterest has TONS of ideas for both snacks and motivational quotes.
You do NOT need to put player names or numbers on the bags, it will be much faster and easier to set out bags if they are all identical and not labeled.
Becky Tirrell, Lesa Baker, or Holly Hill will be in touch with the Head Parent on how to get in the fieldhouse and Varsity locker room that night.
Coaches will lock the locker room after we leave so nothing disappears.
*If you are not able to set the bags yourself, Lesa and Holly can set them out for you, just text us.
Example of how this goes:
Find the game that your son's position has been assigned and sign up to help or just a game that works for your schedule, it doesn't matter to us. The first person to sign up as the "Head Parent" is the lead contact person. Let's say Jessica Veils (her son Aidan plays Linebacker) volunteers to be the head parent for Linebackers for the 8/26 game.
2 weeks before your assigned game, Holly and Lesa will create a group text for all parents who have signed up on the Sign up Genius to help. (the cell #s are listed on the Signup genius - Lesa and Holly can also get them to you)
The Head Parent, Jessica, decides on a theme, snacks, drink, and motivational message for her week. Jessica either delegates purchasing of snacks or gathers funds to purchase herself.
All linebacker parents participating meet to assemble the bags prior to Wednesday night.
The Wednesday before the Varsity game, meet at the field house to set out the bags.
Give the extra snack bags to one of the Coaches or set in the Coach’s office, the extras are for the manager and any players that may have been moved up for the week.
Click this link for an example of what has been done in the past. Please make sure to put “From the Linebacker Parents” or whichever position week you have.
Since there are so many of us for each position and week, this will NOT be expensive.
