While we dodged the massive amounts of rainfall yesterday that devastated our neighbors to the west in Arab and to the south in Pelham (and Birmingham in general), we still received a significant amount locally. The fields are simply too wet to host games tonight, so go ahead and help us spread the word that they are cancelled for 10/7. We will have things back on track next week.
Uniform update: The uniforms did not ship out to arrive today as expected, but they should arrive on Monday. Once I confirm they will arrive, I will contact coaches and get them in their possession. We do not give individual uniforms to parents, as they are packed for the whole team. The coaches will distribute to players. **Please note that you will receive picture order forms with your uniform. It will speed up the process with the photographer if you have the form completed when you arrive at the field at the pre-arranged time to have your pictures made.
Picture update: If your team was on the picture schedule for Monday, it will push later in the week or the following Monday. Your coach will be contacted by the photographer to set up a different time and the coaches will inform the parents.
Schedule update: While it has been rolling out slowly, this has allowed us to identify and resolve conflicts as we go and put out a more reliable schedule in the end. The remainder of the schedule should appear over the weekend. Our season plan is to continue (weather permitting) playing games on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday through Nov. 4th.
We do apologize for the rough and tumble start to the season, and we certainly do appreciate and value your patience as we wade through it all. It’s been great to see everyone back on the fields and we can’t wait to wrap up another great season.

P.S. As an alternative to being at the FPSC fields tonight, remember that CFC (Chattanooga Football Club) is hosting the Cal United Strikers at Finley Stadium at 7:00 Eastern time (that’s 6:00 Central time) tonight, and your players can get in free. See below for details of the process.
