This past year has been incredibly difficult for each of the players.  They have lost out on a season, time with each other, and a part of their lives they will never get back.  We have all missed out on many things during the pandemic that we are looking forward to getting back to.  Unfortunately, our players cannot get the lost year back, they cannot hit rewind or wait for this to simply end to pick things back up.  The time they lost is gone.  Despite all of this, our team maintained a team GPA of above 3.4 which is unbelievable considering the times.  I share this with you as a precursor to why we have decided to go on a trip next fall and why we need your help to do so. 

We wanted to plan a trip that would allow us to begin training for the 2021 season.   We want our student-athletes to reconnect with each other, begin to create new memories. We want to get our new season started off right.  With all the unknowns/restrictions around travel, we have decided to stay in our beautiful state and take the team to Jay Peak.  Jay Peak offers the environment we are looking for to accomplish everything we have mentioned.  We will be going for 3 days and 2 nights.  We have included everything in this trip for them to ensure they have an amazing time!  Facility rentals for training and team meetings, a tram ride to the top of the mountain so we can hike down, water park passes, food and beverage, lodging in houses so they can come together as a team and much more are the costs we need to cover.  

We have made a deposit to hold our place, but we need to raise around $10,000 to cover the trip.  Our players are going to be involved in several other fundraising efforts to raise the money as we do not want them or their parents to have to pay for this event.  We hope that you will consider contributing any amount you can to help us raise the money needed.

We currently have a portion of the money to cover the trip but this will use every penny we have which will take away from the regular things we do.  We need your help to make this team event happen for this great group of student-athletes.  Any amount helps and you can donate online or send us a check.  All donations are tax-deductible and MUCH APPRECIATED!  If you have any questions or would like to talk more please reach out to me.  Thanks again for your consideration and I hope you decide to help make this possible.
