Coaches: Equipment Return

Hello Southern Coaches,

We will be having equipment returns next week Mon-18-Jul and Wed-20-Jul from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. Please make sure you count your jerseys and also let us know about any equipment that may be bad or missing. This will help us prepare for next season. The jersey count and return is extremely important. If you have not collected all of your jerseys please do so. 78ers coaches do not need to return jerseys.

If you have already returned your equipment to someone please email jmoore@foxmotorsusa.com and be sure to mention to whom you turned it over. If you are a coach that is still playing please let Jerry know and he will handle your return at a later date. If you are a coach that is planning to coach fall ball you may keep your equipment, but we will still need to collect all jerseys.

Thanks and see you next week.

Jerry & Tim
