Food: All athletes should eat breakfast before getting on the bus an/or pack snacks for the bus ride.  On site we will have our food tent in operation.  Second breakfast will be french toast, bagels, muffins, and fruit.  Everyone will have the opportunity to pack a bagged lunch for the trip home (sandwich, fruit, granola bar, and chips).  Again a reminder that we are trying to reduce (eliminate using disposable water and Gatorade bottles)  The plan is to have a water cooler and powdered Gatorade.  Here is the LINK for the parent food sign-up

Other Information:   Bring a full water bottle and a change of clothes.  Don’t forget your uniform.
