We talked briefly in the parent meeting on 11/29/23 about launching a new website platform for the Boys HS Basketball program through Blast Athletics (https://www.blastathletics.com/teams/69153). This platform is based on fundraising.
We will be asking for your help to get the Blast site setup and personalized for this year's teams. Your player will be coming home with a sheet requesting 20 contacts. These contacts will then be entered by the player when the team gathers to do this as a group. Please have your sheet completed and sent back with your player by the date Coach Pettis provides.
Parents will also be able to add a profile and link to their player's profile (once added).
The contact information provided will not be shared, sold or used for any other purposes by Blast other than for fundraising for Blaine HS Boys Basketball. Contacts will receive one immediate donation request and 3-4 reminders via email and/or text.
A few things that the raised funds go towards include:
This current site (run by Sports Engine) will continue to be active through the end of the 2022-2023 season.
We appreciate your help in continuing our fundraising efforts for the Blaine HS Boys Basketball program.
