It includes:

  • Principles of Team Play

It is a "must read" for players and coaches. Do your homework and read it! If you don't understand parts of it, we will explain it. You will physically execute these concepts so do NOT be caught unprepared! READ IT!!

Hopefully, we will have some printed copies at the next North HP Academy School for the printer impaired.

Required Medical Forms

**IMPORTANT NEWS**

We just found that medical release forms, along with a few others, will have to be filled out and brought to Jesuit.

We know you've been inundated with requests and we appreciate your patience and compliance.

The forms is an attachment and can be downloaded by clicking on the "download attachment" link at the bottom of this posting. It's in small letters.

Please ensure that your son has these forms along with their government issued IDs and/or birth certificate(if your son has only a school ID). Bringing your insurance card is a good idea too.

For the next 24 hours, it would be a good idea to regularly check the web site for any late breaking news.

I apologize for the last minute requirements, we are doing the best we can.

Identification Needed to Play

Identification
We have to prepare a CIPP book containing a copy of a government issued photo ID with a birth date. Please take a photo of your son's driver's license or passport and email it to Joe Kelly immediately. If your son does not have either of those, then a school photo ID and a birth certificate are required. I need this now as the book will be prepared Tuesday night and NOT in Denver. Please ensure that these important documents are also brought with the player to Denver. It would be a shame to make the trip and be unable to play because of a forgotten drivers license and failure to send me a copy.

Clothing
Yes, more details. Clean tennis shoes, nice belt (number ones will be tucked in) and preferably no cargo pants or side pockets on either shorts or slacks. If that's all you have than OK, but preference is for a neat, clean, respectable representation of Texas.
