Behind every great organization there are great volunteers! In order to  keep offering our youth such an awesome program we need parents to be involved which is why we request every T-Bird family to complete 12 hours of volunteer time throughout the season. Before families can sign up for any volunteer opening, there will be a meeting:
Football families: August 3rd, 6pm, Monte Viste Baseball bleachers
