Team BC Parent Meeting (March 16, 2009)

I would like to invite all Team BC parents out for a Hospitality/Information Night.  This event with be held at Fleetwood Pool in Surrey on March 18, 2009 at 8pm.    
 This is a great opportunity for all parents to ask questions, voice your concerns, receive information so that we are all on the same page.    

All of the information is located at www.bcwaterpolo.com under the sub-heading “Team BC”.  There you can find information on Practice Times, Team BC Plan, Hawaii and Player Code of Conducts.
There is a Team BC Committee that is in place that oversees the Team BC program and they can be helpful as well:

I know that this session will be tough for the Island members to make so, I will call each parent individually to offer the same service. 
If you cannot make the hospitality night, please do not hesitate to contact me via email or on my cell.
Also, I will be attending the Alberta Open and Spring Siesta so, feel free to approach me at those tournaments as well.
I hope to you see you there and talk with you soon!
Respectfully yours,

Ian Mitchell
