2014-15 Basketball Fundraiser

The Rock Springs Boys Basketball team would like to announce their 2014-15 fundraiser.
As a young program, only one senior on the roster, the players have decided that they would like to raise money for the opportunity to be involved in the 2015 UC Santa Barbara boys basketball summer team camp.

This camp is one of the top team camps in Southern California and will allow many of our hard working players a team bonding experience, a chance to view and experience basketball outside of Wyoming, also a recruiting opportunity to be seen by many collegiate coaches. The camp director is none other than former Cheyenne Central standout and Gaucho's Assistant Coach Matt Stock.

The cost of this week long camp for nearly 30 players will reach in the neighborhood of $5,000.
To help pay for this camp our players and program will be selling apparel. We would like to provide our community with high quality clothing to be worn around town and at our games, while working toward this goal as a team.
Below is what we will be selling and the price. If you are interested please either fill out the form below, and a member of our basketball team will contact you, or get in contact with one of our players to make your order. Thank you for your consideration.

SWOL Accounts for all players intending to tryout for the basketball team


With tryouts beginning on December 1st, it is required that all students that intend to tryout for the Rock Springs Boys Basketball team, create a SWOL account. This is to replace the emergency cards of the past. 
ALL PLAYERS MUST FOLLOW THE BELOW STEPS TO BE ELIGIBLE TO PLAY ON DECEMBER 1ST.

Rock Springs High School
Athletic Training Department
2014-2015

Dear Parent or Guardian and Student Athletes,

Prior to participating on a team from Rock Springs High School, athletes must provide the Athletic Department with current address, emergency contact, insurance, medical alert, health history information and acknowledgement of Athletic Training procedures. To expedite this process for you and for coaches, Rock Springs High School uses an online data entry system.  Your athlete will have this account for the remainder of their time at RSHS. We ask that you update this account regularly.

We highly recommend that you print out the directions below.  The directions will walk you through everything you need to know to set up and fill out your SWOL account

·       To enter your information, visit www.swol123.net. The first time you visit the website you will need your School ID which is RSHS Sports Med.  You will also need to enter your personal email address (we recommend a parent’s) and click Get Password.

·       If you have multiple children participating in athletics at RSHS, you will need to set up a separate account for each child. You can use the same email for each account, however the passwords must be different for each account. Let me know that you need to set up multiple accounts and I will help you through the process.

·       If you already have an account, please do not create a second account! Simply update any information that may have changed and switch your current sport to reflect the proper season.

The following steps will walk you through how to set up an account on this online data entry system:

Online Apparel Order Form Ready

As with last year, Universal Athletics is offering us a few amazing deals on Basketball Shoes, Socks, Travel Gear, and T-shirts.

For this season we have chosen to go with a white based shoe. It is not mandatory that players make their order through Universal, or even buy a team shoe for that matter. However we are offering the most popular shoes through Universal Athletic with the colors we are asking for at amazing prices.

ONLINE ORDER FORM

The Store will be open for a week and will close next Tuesday, November 11th.

We ask that all players purchase the travel gear. Under Armor runs a bit big, so know that going into your order.
All else is optional.
All orders are final and non-refundable. Which means that you may need to try a pair of shoes on to know your size as different brands fit differently.

Also, If you are unsure as to whether you will play or make the basketball team in December, we will be doing a separate order after our teams have been made. Bear in mind, however if you choose to order later in the next scheduled delivery, due to time constraints, you will not be able to get your order until the first of January.
