Parent Meeting December 17, 2013
There is a lot of momentum behind the scenes getting ready for our busy season lacrosse season ahead! To keep all of our FIFOC members up to date on all that is happening, we will be having our 2nd Parent Meeting on Tuesday, December 17, 2013 beginning at 6:00pm in the FLC Cafeteria. Most importantly, we will be discussing our Program Sponsorship fundraiser, which is our largest fundraiser of the year. We ask that each parent download the four (4) documents under the "Sponsorship Forms" section of the website and bring them to the meeting so that we can answer any questions you may have about selling ads for the program (Sponsorship Letter, Sponsorship Levels, Program Sponsorship Instructions and Program Layout). In addition we will give the results of our Car Wash and Bake Sale fundraiser, approve the budget, have a few (or more!) words from Coach, and talk about the upcoming season. Please make every effort to attend the meeting, as this is our way of keeping everyone in the “loop” on the important business of our booster club!
Remember, we always have volunteer opportunities available for everyone to get involved!
If you have any questions, please contact any member of the booster club board and we will be happy to answer any of your questions personally!
Robbi Peirce, Todd Heckman, Lisa Cave, Chrissy Shapiro, Dave Taylor, Eric Martin, and Jamie Coleman
We will be having 2 shifts for players to work:
Coach Moriarty will let all of the players know which shift you are responsible for working. If you DO NOT hear from coach, or are not participating in weightlifting, please contact Coach so he can advise you of your shift. You WILL NOT receive this information in an email!!
Our Bake Sale was a huge success the past two years, so we need volunteers (all parents) to bake their favorite goodies and pre-package them so we can sell them during the carwash. Please bring your baked items to the car wash by 10:00am so we have all day to sell them! Make sure you put your name on any serving items (trays, bowls, knives, etc) that you would like returned to you.
We need lots of DADS to supervise the boys to keep them “on task” at this event!!! Please let me know what shift(s) you can work so we have enough supervision. We also will need a few items, so if you have them, please bring them. We were extremely busy the last two years, and the more supplies we have the quicker we can keep the line of cars moving!
- Gas Leaf Blower(s) (for drying)
- Old towels for drying
- Tent (3-4) to get out of the sun and for bake sale. We will need 2 for bake sale area and 1-2 by washing area

A quality you should look for in people to join you on your journey is loyalty. Although this alone does not ensure success in another person, a lack of loyalty is sure to ruin your relationship with him or her. Think of it this way: When you're looking for potential leaders, if someone you're considering lacks loyalty, he is disqualified.
Thoughts to Ponder
Our destinies in life will never be determined by our complaining spirits or high expectations. Life is full of surprises and the adjustment of our attitudes is a lifelong project.
The pessimist complains about the wind.
The optimist expects it to change.
The leader adjusts the sails.
We choose what attitude we have right now, and it is a continuing choice. The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up.
Some Thoughts From Coach Moriarty
Disappointment and defeat are the outcome for half of the participants in every single contest. The exception, of course, is when we have truly given our all, not just in the contest, but in our preparation and practice and can accept that our competition was simply better this particular day.
I have "preached" for years that the true measure of an "athlete" is how he responds to failure. A missed play in a contest gives us an immediate opportunity to elevate our level of focus and energy to "get the ball back". Defeat, an opportunity to reflect on our personal commitment to our team's success. Are we making the sacrifices to nutrition, proper rest, time management, and in the energy and focus we commit to practice? Are we doing everything we need to do to be academically eligible so our teammates can depend on us?
We will always be confronted with disappointment in life. Sports give us an opportunity to practice how we will respond. If something is important to you, give it your all. When the outcome you really want (playing time, first string, varsity, victory) proves to be elusive..., Give it even more! Only YOU determine your potential!
