Hello St. Boniface parents,
I would like to introduce myself, my name is John Anthrop. Since 1996 I have been the St. Lawrence Athletic Director/Gym Coordinator. As of this summer my role has expanded to include all three Catholic elementary schools in Lafayette. My new title is Director of Youth Sports Ministry/Athletic Director. I am working hard to facilitate and improve the athletic programs of both St. Mary Cathedral and St. Boniface. I have already strengthened the volleyball schedule and added a St. Boniface volleyball tourney at Central Catholic (this will be used as a fund raiser for our program). I also have conducted my first coaches meeting with the St. Boniface basketball coaches. Which brings me to my next topic. After contacting Purdue volleyball, Boiler Juniors, Purdue Co-Rec department, Performance Point Volleyball and many qualified individual coaching candidates, we are still have a need for 5th and 6th grade volleyball coach/coaches for this season. In order for our program to be successful, we need all parents to be willing to volunteer in ways such as coaching, gate duty, concession duty, working the scoreboard, game announcer, bookkeeper, and clean-up duty. Parents volunteering is a great way to model service to others to your children.
For those of you who may be interested in coaching volleyball please contact me at 586-0785 or may email firstname.lastname@example.org. First practice would be August 14, 2019. My wife Jana, coaches both teams at St. Lawrence and she is willing to assist the new coach with drills and practice planning.
I look forward to meeting you and working together to build our athletic program.
Thank you – John Anthrop
