We will have a player/parent meeting on Monday, August 29 at 5:30 on the bleachers by the softball field.
Immediately after school tomorrow, meet in the girl’s locker room for uniform check-out and locker issue. 9th graders select uniforms first, followed by 8th graders, followed by 7th graders. We will also vote for 2 captains. See Coach Kaufman.
After your uniforms are locked up, dress for practice and meet Coach Wilson on the field.
Thanks to those of you that did not make the team. Please see me so we can discuss areas you need to improve.

T. H. Bell Girl's Softball Disclosure Statement
Congratulations to your daughter for making the Bell Softball team. This letter is intended to educate the parent and team member of the requirements and sacrifices needed to represent your school in an extra-curricular team sport. Most of all, it is my intention to convey to parents and team member the theme that junior high athletics is a training ground for development of physical skills, team concept, and character. School and education should always be more important than any extra-curricular activity. It is a privilege to participate in a team sport and represent your school.
Each team member is expected to honor the rules and regulations outlined in their student handbook, the WSD and THB code of conduct forms, including the District Hazing Policy. Any violation or action that would disgrace the school, team, or team member could result in a disciplinary action or dismissal from the team.
There are financial obligations associated with playing school athletics. There is a required district participation fee of $65.00. Bats, catcher's gear, balls, and uniforms are provided. The girls will need to supply their own cleats, gloves, sliding pads, etc. In addition, the girls are required to purchase game socks. The socks can be purchased from the school at a cost of $5.00. The cost of a Bell backpack string bag is $10.00 for a player or a parent. If you would like to purchase a Bellvisor, the cost is $11.00. All fees are paid for at the front office. Bring your receipt to coach Wilson to claim your socks, bag, or visor. A player cannot participate in a game until all fees are paid. If you qualify for a financial fee waiver (participation fee only), make arrangements through our office and they will inform the coach. We are asking each player to participate in a fundraiser to help pay for team expenses. We offer a Papa Murphy’s discount card. The cost is $10.
Each team member will be issued a team uniform and will be responsible for the cleaning and care of the uniform. The only time the uniform is to be worn is during a game. The player will be financially responsible for the loss of or damage to the uniform. Please follow the washing directions on the label of the uniform.
Student athletes must also sign and return various forms, including: proof of insurance coverage (insurance can be obtained through the school), a current physical examination (within the last year), emergency medical information, WSD code of conduct, THB athletic contract, head injury form, and the verification of this Softball disclosure before they are allowed to play in a game. A physical examination can be obtained from your personal doctor or from JAG Services in the school at 2:45 on Wednesday, August 31 at a cost of $10.00. Please make this payment at the time of the examination to JAG Services, not T. H. Bell.
During games and practices, players are to remain with their team. At no time is a player allowed to leave the dugout to sit with parents or friends. Parents and friends are not allowed in team dug-outs, team discussions, or on the playing field. If you have questions or want to discuss a topic, it must be done before or after a game or practice. Coach’s decisions are made with the best interests of the team in mind. Your help and cooperation is greatly appreciated. We are hoping for a great year full of personal growth, success, and fun.
Thanks for your support,
T. H. Bell Junior High
Girl's Softball Coach
Bus Policy: When a player rides a bus to a game, they are required to ride the bus back to the school. If you want to take your daughter home after an away game, write a note and have it approved by Mr. Ward the morning before the game. Have the player give the note to Coach Wilson. Thanks
