Dear Team and Parents,
On Thursday, May 5th, the girls will have an away game vs St. Martins. The Girls' softball team has 2:50pm early dismissal for that day. The early dismissal will give them enough time to make it to the school and warm up before the game. 3:45pm is the game time.
Dear Teams and Parents,
On Wednesday, May 18th, Saint Andrews will have the Spring Sports Chapel Service from 8:15am to 8:50am. If your child participated in Girls' Softball, Boys' Volleyball, Track or Morning Run Club during this season, he or she will be presented with a medal for their efforts. Rehearsal for this event will be Tuesday, May 17th in the Chapel at 1:00pm with Father Cameron and the P.E. staff.
Wednesday’s Chapel Service will begin at 8:15am. All students should dress in “All School Chapel” attire. Please have your child on campus no later than 7:50am. Our student athletes will need to line up in front of the Chapel by 7:55am on Wednesday.

Parents picking up Softball players from Practice
Players are not allowed to wait in front of the school for their ride after practices or games.
Softball players should be picked up at the field at 5:00pm, after 5:10pm players will be brought back to the campus where they will be checked into daycare.
Arriving on time to Home and Away Games
For games that are at 3:45pm all players need to get to the game ASAP. For later games players need to be at the site of the game 30 minutes before game time. If for some reason a player can't be there 30 minutes before the game, the player must let the coach know ahead of time.
Carpooling to Away Games
Parents are responsible to get their child to any away games, either by driving them or making carpool arrangements with another parent. In the past parents have e-mailed each other and set up carpools to the away games. Parents that are driving to the games should pick up their group in the parking lot or meet them in the gym. After the game parents pick up their own child or make arrangements for a ride. Coaches are not allowed to drive players. Parent/Coaches of a student at Saint Andrew's are the only exception to this rule.
Cheering for your Team
When at a game as a fan, both students and parents are encouraged to cheer for their team in a positive way. Fans should not vocally criticize the officials, the players, or the coaches from the stands.
Practice and Game Schedule Calendar
The calendar below is a weekday schedule of practices and games. Each weekday will either say Practice, Home Game, Away Game, Off, or No School. If there is a weekday not listed on the calendar, please figure that there is at least a practice and use the team e-mail address to contact the Coaches and AD, so we can correct the problem.
