Pope Jr Greyhounds Parents and Players:

 

Very exciting news for the Jr Greyhound Program.  We have secured 150 tickets @ $18.00 each exclusively for our program to watch the second Blaze home Game on May 14. Each ticket also provides for the following special features:

 

  • Special parking section (Parking cost still apply).
  • Early entrance to the stadium to watch warm-ups with an exclusive meet and greet opportunity with the players.
  • Tunnel Access that will allow our boys and girls teams an opportunity to cheer and greet the home team as they come out on to the field.
  • A player walk where one or two of our girl players will accompany a Blaze player onto the field as they are announced to the crowd.  
  • A half time game where our U11 and U9 teams Boys team (we will split our three teams into two) will play a Blue vs White game during half time on the KSU Field.

 

The Blaze is making a big commitment to our program, and hope we can show them the same support.  More details to follow in the coming weeks.

If you want to reserve tickets, please click on the link below and add your family name and number of tickets needed. Payment details will be provided later, but you will be purchasing the tickets directly from the Junior Greyhounds organization. If we exceed the 150 tickets allocated, I can reserve more:

Wyatt Pope - A Friend in Need - Sign up for 5K

The 2016 Junior Greyhound Select Team supporting Wyatt Pope
Parents,
 
See 'How Can I Help' link below to #wywystrong website in order to sign up for a 5K run/walk in East Cobb on May 21.
 
In early February, Wyatt Pope, a seven year old Roswell resident, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The doctors detected a malignant tumor growing inside his stomach.Wyatt has recently started chemo therapy. 
 
Chuck and Carrie Pope, Wyatt's parents, have a done terrific job of sharing through social media, Wyatt's unfortunate condition. In searching through their facebook site, there was at least 3 Pope teams honoring Wyatt last weekend, forming the signature "W" sign with their hands or body. Our teams are part of countless number of people across the country, recognizing and cheering on Wyatt through this difficult time.
 
Please take a moment and check out Wyatt's story, using the below link. There are a couple of ways that you can help out. Please consider a small donation or purchasing a T-shirt to provide both encouragement and support to the Pope family.
 
We thank the Lavelle Family (Tim, Traci, Jace, & Sieger) for introducing the Popes to our Junior Greyhound community. 
 
Parents, thank you for your consideration.

Honor The Game

Honoring the Game goes to the "ROOTS" of positive play
 
   R is for Rules
   Rules allow us to keep the game fair.  If we will by ignoring or         
   violating the rules, what is the value of our victory.
 
   O is for Opponents
   Without an opponent there would be no competition.  Rather    
   than demeaning a strong opponent, we need to honor strong  
   opponents because they challenge us to do our best.
 
   O is for Officials
   Respecting officials, even when we disagree with their calls, may 
   be the toughest part of Honoring the Game.   We must 
   remember that officials are not perfect (just like coaches, 
   athletes, and parents!)
 
   T is for Teammates
   It’s easy for young athletes to think solely about their own 
   performance, but we want athletes to realize that being a part of
   a team requires thinking about and respecting one’s teammates.
   This respect needs to carry beyond the field.
 
   S is for Self
   Athletes should be encouraged to live up to their own highest 
   personal standard of Honoring the Game, even when their
   opponents are not. Athletes’ respect for themselves and their 
   own standards must come first.
