Dear Parents & Student Athletes,
Volunteers Needed!
Volunteers are needed to run the registration table at the Athletic Banquet tomorrow night. Please contact Mr. Horton.
And then, it was over...though we have a rowing event this weekend, the school year raced to an exciting conclusion this past weekend. Suddenly we find ourselves attending galas, celebrating the year's accomplishments while turning in uniforms, compiling the final statistics, and putting away our equipment in anticipation of summer.

It was quite a year; championship appearances each season, some ending in champions, others not. Regardless of the results, life long bonds were formed by teammates. Many will go their separate ways soon, but will never forget the grueling practices, the laughter, the exhilaration of one great moment or the disappointment of another. For those who coached and worked with our athletes, there is a great pride in what was accomplished, not only with the results, but most importantly, in the growth and life lessons that were learned in the journey this academic year.  We will celebrate those tomorrow at the Varsity Athletic Awards Banquet and, for a good number of Cardinals, again on Wednesday at the Alexandria Sportsman's Club Gala. 
It's GREAT to be a Cardinal!
The joys of victories will slowly fade, as will the sting of setbacks, but the life lessons and friendships will endure for the rest of our athletes' lives. As parents and coaches, this is a time to help our athletes remember "why" they play, which should be for the love of the game and for their teammates, their school, and for fun. All too soon, those experiences are replaced by work and by more serious responsibilities as adults. Whether your athlete is graduating or looking ahead to next season, help them (and you) enjoy their sports experience because it does go by all too quickly.

We think Triple Impact competitors make the best adults - as co-workers, friePCAnds, and spouses.  PCA, along with Deloit, supports developing Triple Impact Competitors and has offered this year's junior class an opportunity to win a $2,000 PCA Triple Impact Scholarship for college.

Applications are open now for the Class of 2017 through May 31st. Go to their website or click here.
Just a reminder, summer is a great time for athletes to take charge of their futures if athletics in college is part of the plan. From club teams to summer camps, plan to be where the school of your choice can see you in action. If "your college" has a summer camp in your sport, sign up and be ready to impress your future coaches. If your club schedule is out, reach out to coaches to let them know where and when you club is playing.
