Make sure your club dues are current

Parents, please make sure your player's club dues are current. You can make payments to your team's coach or at practice next week. Don't allow your player to miss tryouts in the fall because of a missed payment. (The Region won't allow players with outstanding fees to tryout for any club.) Check with John if you are unsure about your stats asap. Thanks!

A note about uniform care

John would like to remind players to wash their jerseys "inside out", and to always let them "hang dry." We want you to look your best!

Practice changes

Due to changes in the school schedule, practice times are changing (including times and days for all our teams this week.) Always double check our practice schedule!

A note about calendars

Since several people reported time zone problems, we turned off the ability to click on an event from any page of our website. Upcoming events still scroll at the bottom of every page, but for more inforrmation... please click on our Schedule page and check the list for any updated information for tournaments OR the calendar at the bottom of the list for practice and meeting information (events can still be clicked there for locations and other information.)

Columbia Android AppIt's important to check our schedule page often for updates and changes.

Paperwork

Schedule updates

Our team schedules are more than 75% complete now! There are lots of travel updates on our schedule page. Parents should make reservations and travel plans now for those tournaments where it shows you are released. (Including NW Jamboree and U-14 Power League Qualifier #1)

It's Chaperones time!

Every Columbia team is required by our region to have a "Team Chaperone." Since Columbia teams leave player travel to the supervision of families, our Chaperones don't have a lot of responsibilities. Chaperones MAY be asked to be present at Tournemant Coaches meetings with their coach and sign the roster at some tournaments. They can relay site rules back to the rest of the parents after Coaches meetings. Chaperones MAY help provide supervision of players if requested by one of our coaches while at a tournament as well. Coaches may also ask Chaperones to help relay tournament results to Chris for our website.

If you've been asked to be the Chaperone for your daughter's team, please do the following:

  • E-Mail Chris and let him know you are the chosen one (if you don't already show on the list below)
  • Sign up on Webpoint (using the links on the front of the Evergreen Region website) and register for a Chaperone Membership (please! be sure to set your Club to Columbia Jrs) and you will need to complete the background check authorization. Pay your membership fee online, and John L will reduce your January player fees to reimburse you. EV Region help and instructions are online.
  • Complete the "Chaperone Responsibilities" form and return to your team's coach.

Team Chaperones:

  • 12-Black - Jennifer Meinecke
  • 14-Red - Melissa Wiley
  • 14-Black - Lisa Scott
  • 15-Black - Coralee Fisher
  • 16-Red - Renee Krovoshein
  • 16-Black - Stacey Shelton
