Dear Prospective Scholar Bowl Team Member,
Thank you for your interest in the Echols Middle School 2012-2013 Scholar Bowl team! I am excited to start practicing and getting ready for award winning competitions.
Scholar Bowl Team Member Expectations:
¨ Come to all practices. You must have a note from your parent with a valid excuse if you are going to miss a practice. If you miss more than 3 practices, you are off the team. Practices will be 1 to 2 days per week. We typically meet once a week unless we are preparing for a tournament. Then we will meet twice per week.
¨ Come to scheduled tournaments. They will typically be on Saturdays and no bus will be provided. You must arrange with your parents for a ride or arrange with your friends to carpool. I can usually carry the entire team in my vehicle, but I cannot make any promises!
¨ Make arrangements to be picked up on time. Pick up is in the back parking lot at 3:45. Parents, there will be no supervision after this time!
¨ Check the website frequently for updates and information.
¨ Support your team members! No derogatory comments, teasing, or putdowns will be tolerated!
¨ Practice, practice, practice!
¨ Purchase a Scholar Bowl T-Shirt. Cost and design will be given soon! This is mandatory and should only be about $15.00.
