In Acton, we have Soccer in spring, summer and fall
We have Baseball Spring, summer and fall.
We have school, buddy warner and tri-state ski racing late fall and all of
We have hockey fall, winter, spring.
There is school marching band the entire school year.
There is now a jazz band during the school year.
There is football in the fall (which includes all the band)
We have made the decision that the first week of June (kinda end of
summer baseball/soccer) will be elections which are just before camp (by 5
and this is really the best we can do...
There isn't any day good for everyone.
20% are in band.
10% are on football team
40% are in soccer
40 % are in baseball.
10% are in ski racing.
15 % are in hockey.
Our SPL is in football so the ASPL works harder in the fall than in the spring
because he is on the ski team and baseball.
The PL are in soccer and baseball so their assistents come in to assist.
MOST of the boys are there on Wed night meetings. The campouts
range from 4 to 30 boys typically around 15 because of otehr activities.
WE have 16 boys at summer camp.
We are in competition with other programs. I had a person come up to me
and say that he could not figure a way to get his boy involved in CubS. He
felt he really needed the rounding out. They had already dropped church,
because their son was on one local hockey team, one traveling team, playing
soccer, and now signing up for a foreign language after school... The boy
is in 2nd grade. The boy is pretty aggressive and doesn't get along with most
I wonder why? 8-)
