Pictures will be taken at M. M. Robinson High School (2425 Upper Middle Rd.) Burlington, on November 1st and 2nd,
and times are noted on your schedules.
Please arrive (at least)
45 minutes before your
scheduled time as the food drive weigh-in
will take place before pictures are taken. (Teams can drop off food at ANY time
during our 2 evening collection up to 9:30 pm on Nov 2nd, but if you
are bringing food with you on photo night, just please allow enough time.)
Please make sure your team is ready and assembled 30 minutes before their scheduled time to avoid missing your photo time. THERE WILL BE NO DELAYS OR PHOTO RETAKES DUE TO LATENESS. (Team photos are first before individual photos so all players must be on time.)
Food Drive will be the same two evenings. Donations will be collected as our players arrive at the gymnasium doors. PLEASE TRY TO LABEL YOUR FOOD (IF IN BOXES, WRITE THE NAME OF THE TEAM ON THE BOX. IF IN BLUE BAGS, REMOVABLE TAGS ON THE HANDLES. J)
If you have a large donation, please contact us for instructions. (Enthusiastic volunteers and signage will be there to guide and assist you to unload at the double doors near the gym. There will also be helpers with dollies to assist you.
Parking and Traffic
PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY WHEN APPROACHING THE SCHOOL IN THE INTERESTS OF SAFETY. THERE WILL BE MANY EXCITED YOUNG CHILDREN WHO WILL BE COMING IN & OUT OF POOL ENTRANCE PERHAPS NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO ROAD HAZARDS. THERE WILL BE VOLUNTEERS IN FRONT OF THE SCHOOL AND IN THE LANEWAY DIRECTING TRAFFIC. AT ALL TIMES, PLEASE OBEY THE TRAFFIC INSTRUCTIONS.
Please enter the parking lot using the main driveway of M.M. Robinson, off Upper Middle Road, at the lights.
All volunteers and the parents of players that are staying for pictures are to park in the west end lot near Guelph Line or the School Board parking lot as parking is limited.
Also please note that the pool will be in use and therefore the parking lot in front of the pool area is restricted to pool patrons.
Please follow instructions of the traffic coordinators to ensure safety and proper traffic flow. A WAVE AND BIG SMILE WOULD BE WELCOMED BY THESE HARDWORKING VOLUNTEERS. JJJ
FOOD DROP OFF
FOLLOW DIRECTIONS OF TRAFFIC CO-ORDINATORS and proceed to the back of M.M. Robinson through the alleyway located on the west end of the pool, beside the Football Field.
- Food drop off will be at Doors 27 & 23 at the back of MM Robinson
Just to reiterate – Coaches and Managers are expected to be in full control of team behaviour at all times during the photo shoot. Please be respectful of M. M. Robinson High School, our amazing host school, and all property. Please, do not allow rough play on the bleachers or in the food bins. Safety is important.
SKATE GUARDS ARE MANDATORY
Since we will be in the school gymnasium, please ensure players stay on the carpeted areas while wearing skates to avoid scratching the floor. Please ensure there is no pushing, shoving, etc. – in the past bystanders have been hit by sticks, so please keep your players under control. Also, please make sure that your players show courtesy to the volunteers who are checking them in. A good idea here would be to assign a couple of your staff or parents to ensure it all goes smoothly. Please remember that we are guests of the generous staff and students of M. M. Robinson.
ATTIRE: Players are to wear their GOLD home jersey with a white mock neck or t-shirt underneath – no helmets. There is an area to put on skates at the gym. NOTE: there will not be a change area in the Cafeteria. Please come already dressed if possible. There will be skate changing areas closer to the photo area.
NOTE: There is an area at the end of the hallway from the cafeteria to get dressed - there will not be a change area in the Cafeteria. Please come already dressed if possible. Please keep skate guards on in the hallway and remove them once on the protected floor in the cafeteria. Bins will be provided for teams to keep skate guards until their photos are complete.
Coaches and team staff should be in Eagles’ DRESS attire: white dress shirt, eagles’ tie and eagles’ jacket. NO JEANS PLEASE!!!
