Our football kids have been offered an opportunity for service hours with our professional rugby team RugbyATL Rattlers who play their home games at Life University. The details are below, but the first game is an exciting one that is happening this Saturday evening at 7:00 (volunteers need to be there at 2:30 and will be able to watch the game and be fed).
For the first game, for simplicity we will look to do this with just the 10 kids, but may break the job down into two shifts (a set-up crew and a breakdown crew) to allow more kids to participate. It should be a lot of fun for the boys to be so close to the action watching some incredible athletes run, tackle and score!
RugbyATL is looking for 8-10 boys to help with field set-up and breakdown for their home games. The dates of the games are:
May 8 7:00pm vs. Toronto Arrows (who play home at Life as well due to Covid) "Fire and Ice" game (see ad link below--in MDJ 5/5 also)
May 15 8:00pm vs. New England Free Jacks
May 29 8:00pm vs. LA Giltinis
June 19 8:00pm vs. Houston Sabercats
June 26 8:00pm vs. Old Glory DC
In return, RugbyATL will allow our team to have a table for selling spiritwear and/or coupon cards.
Additionally, they will donate $1,000 to LHS Football for each game that we work. It is a really great opportunity for all of us!

I hope you will encourage your kids to be part of this. It is a great local sporting event and the kids will have a great chance to see some professional athletes up close and personal. It is a fun event for all families to enjoy!
