Youth BB Appreciation Nights

Parents - Youth Appreciation Nights are Thursday, January 17 (Girls game vs Eveleth-Gilbert) and Tuesday, February 5 (Boys game vs Hermantown). Players can attend one or both.

All players in attendance will be announced by grade level teams starting with the 1/2 Choo Choo players, and ending with the 6th grade boys players.  Players should arrive NO later than 6:30 to highlight their name on the sheets outside the gym doors.  Players will be announced between the JV and the Varsity games and will remain OFF the playing floor as they jog around the side and end of the court "high 5'ing" the c team, jv and varsity players and coaches.

Only players with their name highlighted will be announced.  ALL players are welcome and encouraged to come to both the Girls and the Boys game to be recognized.
