2019 Season (Updated 8-23-19): Reminders and Updates
If at any time there are any questions, concerns or issues, please be sure to see a board member so we can address in a timely manner. Coaches and advisers are sidetracked during practice and messages may not get to us quickly.
Picture Day – Saturday August 24th from 9am-12pm in North Pocono Intermediate (NPI) Gym. Times for teams/squads are as follows: A – 9:00, D- 9:45, C – 10:30, B – 11:15. Online orders can be placed anytime using the Bishop website http://www.bishopphoto.com/ use the league code NPJRTrojans19. If you use online ordering you get a free 8×10 calendar! A photo paper will be provided upon request as Bishop encourages online ordering. Please note that all pictures will be taken on a green screen; field/scoreboard backdrop will be added in later. This is to ensure we don’t have wet conditions! NO CLEATS in gym! Please wear sneakers.
ALL COACHES AND ADVISORS; you get a free picture of you and your child! Be prepared 🙂 Football players – Coaches will choose jersey color for group photo – parents can choose color for individual photo. (Game Uniform for pictures)
Board Meeting – Monday – September 9th 7:00 pm at NPI cafeteria. All are welcome and encouraged to attend. Will discuss upcoming Sportsman Dinner scheduled for October 5th.
Food Hut – Please note each game has team/squad that will be responsible for donations to the food hut each week (ie. Soda, Gatorade, baked goods etc.,) We appreciate anything! Unlimited water bottles are being donated by Nina’s Wing Bites and Pizza.
Please note: Parents are required to work the food hut for one home game. Coaches, advisers, team moms, EMT parents and parents working the chains will be exempt from working the food hut as they are contributing to the organization. There will be 2-3 board members in food hut at all shifts. If you can’t commit to the day you are scheduled, please try and switch with someone by posting to the main NP JR Trojans FB page or contacting them during practice. You will not be working the food hut during your child’s game time.
First Aid – The board table has a first aid kit along with ice packs if needed for any team / squad and can address emergency services quickly if needed.
Football Uniforms Care:
For best results wash uniforms immediately after each use.
Please inspect for normal wear and tear so repairs can be made prior to washing to prevent further damage. Do not allow uniforms to lie on itself or in a pile when wet because perspiration can cause fading or color bleeding.
Wash uniforms in cold water with mild detergent as soon as possible after each use, before stains can set. Do not use bleach or fabric softener. Do not dry clean. Do not iron
Since uniforms are new, we ask you hang to dry to be on safe side as excessive heat can cause garment shrinkage, discoloration, degradation and cracking of lettering.
PARKING Rules – there is NO parking allowed in front of the school garage doors or on the grass. PLEASE no triple parking. There is extra parking in upper parking lot of NPI and NPMS. In case of any emergency we need to ensure that any parent can get out if needed.
NO SMOKING or PETS allowed – school ground rules. Please clean up all garbage and have your child gather all their equipment including water bottles. We post “lost and found” items on our main Facebook page nightly.
** Registration for 2020 will be held mid-February. Practice begins 3rd week of July. Thank you.
