Sports Meeting Planned
for CLCS Parents
All Chautauqua Lake Central School student athletes interested in participating in a modified, junior varsity or varsity sport at any time during the 2013-14 school year are strongly urged to attend a sports information meeting, along with their parents, on Thursday, Aug. 15 at 6 p.m. in the district auditorium.
Coaches will review a variety of topics, including season expectations, requirements and other pertinent information. All required athletic forms will be handed out and can be completed at the meeting. One set of forms will be used for the entire school year, eliminating the need to complete separate forms for fall, winter and spring seasons.
The sports information meeting is an opportunity to ask questions and obtain information about athletics at CLCS. For more information, call Secondary School Principal Josh Liddell, who supervises athletic programs at CLCS. He can be reached at the Secondary School Office, 753-5881.
The Chautauqua County Hockey Association will offer three levels of adult play this season. All games are played at Fredonia State University. The divisions are: A Division (advanced), B Division (intermediate) and C Division (novice).
Anyone interested in participating in any one of the three divisions or have any questions should contact Bill Anderson at 679-1665. The season begins Aug. 30.
