MANDATORY Youth Winter Sports Parent Meeting, Held 11/25
Is your child participating in a GRD Youth Basketball League (K – 8th Grade) or GRD Wrestling (K – 6th Grade) this winter? If so, please plan on attending the GRD Winter Youth Sports Parent Meeting on Tuesday, November 25th, 6:30pm in the GHS Theatre. The meeting will be led by Chris Skidmore, GRD Youth Sports Coordinator & Andy Wildman, GRD Executive Director. The goal of the meeting will be to best prepare our GRD Youth Sports Parents for a positive and worthwhile experience for the upcoming season. Various topics will be discussed including parent/coach communication, sportsmanship, playing time, safety, etc. We will also take questions and provide parents with protocol for how to handle various situations that may arise. We look forward to seeing you there! *NOTE: Travel basketball parents do not attend because you have already had your parent meeting.
