Announcements and Important Events
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
Being apart and not being able to compete is tough on all of us (athletes, coaches, and parents). Athletes want to train and compete, coaches want to coach and connect, and parents LOVE to watch you play. Until we have the chance to participate together again, please consider engaging in some of these discussions or activities and find a way to stay connected with each other, because when this is all through, we will continue to show why we are Squire Strong. Here are some ideas to inspire action if you are willing.
Athletes: Think about a coach who has made a positive impact on you and how it made you feel. Find a way to reach out to that coach and give thanks.
Coaches: Reach out to a former coach of yours who has impacted you. Find a way to reach out to that coach and give thanks.
Parents: Think about your favorite memory of watching your child play and share it with them.
ALL: Pray for the team of health service workers who are on the frontline of our healthcare. Many of them are former athletes who are facing adversity that their sports experience has trained them for. Pray that they will have the strength and wisdom to serve well. Pray for their safety.
Athletes: Connect with a teammate and share what you miss most about your sport.
Coaches: Reach out to an official (officials directory is online at mhsaa.com once you are logged in) and thank them for their service to your sport.
