Entrance to Home Games and Ticket Taking Protocol
Michal Lynn Hoener, SHS Soccer Booster Club, President
Parents, We would like to clarify some of the rules that the school has concerning tickets and entrance into our games. The following get in free to our games: Madison County employees with a current 2019-2020 badge; no "plus one" Madison City employees with a current 2019-2020 badge; no "plus one" Huntsville City employees with a current 2019-2020 badge; no "plus one" Referees that present a referee ID card Coaches and players from both teams Volunteers that are signed up for the game- if you are staying for the game after you volunteer, you are expected to pay for that game. The ticket gate will now have a list of volunteers based on our sign-up genius. Anyone that has purchased a Sparkman season pass Coaches, including teacher coaches/reps, receive one additional ticket free per game We do not honor: Other schools' season passes Teachers from other schools outside of the three listed above Retired or former employees of the three listed above As always, we want to keep our volunteers safe. Do NOT ever get into a situation with a parent that could potentially put you in harm's way. If you are in doubt about free entrance to the game or feel that you are not safe, please immediately call me. 256-655-7296
Parents, As we begin our season, we need to be mindful of our conduct as we cheer for our teams. When we play games at Sparkman High School, we are hosting another school. We should always hold ourselves to a high standard and act as gracious hosts. It is standard practice to have all fans sitting on the home side of our stadium for soccer games. The visitor side will be roped off for any future home games to avoid having anyone near the players. I would like for our visitors to feel welcome and for all of us to represent our school and our soccer program in a positive way. Emotions often run high, especially when the game or a call does not go our way. There should never be an instance where anyone from either school feels threatened. I ask that we refrain from profanity, especially when addressing parents from opposing schools. There are often younger siblings at our games, and they should be able to enjoy watching their brother or sister play without hearing profanity and negativity. Thank you.
The booster club board members will be available to receipt money for dues on Monday, February 3rd at 5:00 p.m. at the stadium field. We will also be selling all of the old uniforms on Monday. Seniors will get first priority in purchasing, then all other athletes may purchase. The cost of last year's kit (two jerseys and two pairs of shorts) will be $25. Old backpacks will be $10 and all other uniform pieces will be $5 each. Cash or checks made out to Sparkman High School will be accepted. If you have a uniform kit from last year, we ask that you pay $25 or return it on Monday.
Soccer proofs are IN- please go to Shuttleman's website to order. The soccer board should put out an email regarding this and seniors choosing their pictures for the senior banners soon. For now, go check out the proofs and place your order at https://shuttlemanphotography.com.
The following is from Gina Menold, our freshman team manager who is coordinating backpack embroidery: Parents and Players, I am able to extend the deadline for name embroidery on the player backpacks. I will be located at Field 8 at the Decatur Soccer Complex from approximately 1:00-3:00. Please empty your bag, put $5 in the bag, zip up all pockets, CLEARLY write your last name on a piece of paper, include what team you are on, and staple it to the handle of the bag. Based on number of bags, they should be returned in 2-3 weeks. We are NOT responsible for misspellings. Make sure your name is LARGE and CLEARLY written. Include the team you play on in small lettering as well. You may also bring your bag to Boston butt pick up. One of the booster board members will collect and deliver to Gina. Thank you, Michal Lynn Hoener SHS Soccer Booster Club, President
Parents/Athletes, Shuttleman Photography contacted us concerning make-up pictures. He will be set up to take photos at his home on Saturday, February 1 at 6:00 p.m. This is the only make-up time that he has given us right now. He is very busy with other team photos and senior pictures, so please make it a priority to go on Saturday if you missed the first session. You can contact him directly at to get the address for pictures or if you would like to discuss another time for photos. Seniors, if you have not had your photo taken, please do so on Saturday. Shuttleman will be printing the senior banners soon and we want to make sure that all seniors are included. Go Senators!
Parents/Players, Our provider for the Boston Butts has graciously agreed to an earlier pick up time since we have teams that are playing at 9:00 at the ref clinic on Saturday. Please understand that the pickup date/time was coordinated in early December. The ref clinic schedule was just released and we have no control over the times that we play. JV Boys AND Varsity Girls ONLY- pick up for Boston butts will begin at 7:00 a.m. All other teams may pick up between 7:30-8:30 a.m. Any Boston butts that are not picked up will be put in coolers and MUST be picked up by 12:00 p.m. from me at 194 Gokee Rd. I do not have the capability to properly store that many food items past noon. There are no afternoon pick ups-this is a food safety issue and we cannot distribute food items after they have reached a certain temperature. Thank you, Michal Lynn Hoener SHS Soccer Booster Club, President
