REMINDER TO COACHES!  SPECIAL MTG ON MON 3/28 @ 7PM
===================================================================================
All coaches are to be in attendance on Monday, 3/28, at 7pm for a meeting with Christine Lottes, Professor at Kutztown University, Department of Sport Management and Leadership Studies.  Christine has a lot of insights on coaching in youth Sports. This will be a great opportunity for us to obtain some good food for thought from someone who works regularly with girls in youth sports.  The meeting will be held at the Keystone Villa. We have reserved the LARGER meeting room (NOT the one we hold our monthly FGSA meetings.)

 
FGSA LOTTO CALENDARS
===================================================================================
Just a reminder that the Lotto Calendars that we sold this year are for April and May, so less than 2 weeks away.  We use the NIGHT-TIME Pennsylvania daily lottery number.  You do not need to pay attention to it yourself.  We'll check the numbers regularly, and if there is a winner, we'll contact you about where to send your millions.
 

FLEETWOOD HS "STRIKE OUT CANCER" GAME = MON 4/18
===================================================================================
The Fleetwood High School JV & Varsity teams will be playing games at the Blandon Fire Co. on April 18th starting at 6pm. These two games are the annual “Strike-Out Cancer Fundraiser."  Please come out for a walking taco to help raise money for cancer research, and to see our top level of softball in the Fleetwood School District program!
 

FGSA TO HOST THE BCGSL 10UB TOURNAMENT! = 5/14 & 5/15
===================================================================================
For years Schuylkill Valley would host a tournament for the 10UB teams in Berks County. For whatever reason they decided not to do it this year, so Keith Santangelo decided that he would spearhead the efforts to have the tournament right here at Fleetwood! The dates are set for 5/14 and 5/15. Most likely we will be using BOTH the Blandon field and the Fleetwood High school field, but it will depend on the number of teams that enter.  Format will be a Round Robin on Saturday, 5/14 (minimum of 3 games for every team) followed by a Single elimination bracket on Sunday, 5/15.

 
15U VS. THE FLEETWOOD POLICE! = SAT 5/21
===================================================================================
Our 15U girls will be kicking off their Summer season with a scrimmage against the FLEETWOOD POLICE DEPARTMENT on Saturday, 5/21, at 1pm! Yes, you heard that right. We're going to play the Fleetwood Police.  I just hope that our girls don't hurt too many of them.  Donuts will be served at the concession stand.  It is unclear if stealing will be allowed.
 

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
===================================================================================

HELP MAKE THE SPORT FUN FOR YOUR DAUGHTER.  It's a time proven principle of peak performance that the more fun an athlete is having, the more they will learn and the better they will perform. Fun must be present for peak performance to happen at every level of sports from youth to world class competitor. When a child stops having fun and begins to dread practice or competition, it's time for you as a parent to become concerned! When the sport or game becomes too serious, athletes have a tendency to burn out and become susceptible to repetitive performance problems. An easy rule of thumb: If your child is not enjoying what they are doing, nor loving the heck out of it, investigate! What is going on that's preventing them from having fun? Is it the coaching? The pressure? Is it you?! Keep in mind that being in a competitive program does not mean that there is no room for fun. The child that continues to play long after the fun is gone will soon become a drop out statistic.
