I have always been an advocate of strong finishes. This is especially true when I am coaching a team. After a season of hard work, focus, and building team chemistry, there are few things more rewarding than a strong finish. That is the objective, and it is the very goal our athletic boosters have spent this entire year, beginning in August, working hard to achieve. Their work has focused on building chemistry with our teams, parents, and North Cross community through the team liaison system. In this system, each team is required to have a designated liaison that acts as a conduit of communication between the booster club, student-athletes, and team parents. Each liaison is asked to attend booster meetings, provide team updates, make team funding requests, and recruit volunteers from their team to sell concessions. At times this can be a thankless task, but it has proved vital in the health of the booster club and success of our athletic program.
So, as we enter the final half of the spring season, I want to encourage everyone to contact your team liaison, ask them if they need help, and volunteer an hour or two before the end of the season. This type of community spirit is what made the Big Flea a huge success and will help the spring season have a strong finish.
