  • **Spring 2020 Season Summary**

    Posted by Coach Gembar on 4/11/2020

    Breaking Clays Makes My Day

    Student-athletes & Parents,

    Over the last 4 seasons we have been lucky enough to witness so much as a team, from Sal posting the teams first 25 straight at our first State Tournament, to new members getting the trap shooting bug, to Nick's famous run of 150 straight “biirrd“s, to our 4 Conference championships. We have seen student-athletes grow and support each other and have witnessed kids and parents fostering new friendships.

    That is why it is with a heavy heart I convey this information with you and your parents pertaining to our Spring 2020 season. With the current environment and league deadlines looming we have chosen not to participate in the Spring 2020 season.

    Please review the enclosed document and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

    Stay Safe, See you all soon!!

    Coach Gembar & Staff

  • 2020 Spring Season UPDATE!

    Posted by Coach Gembar on 4/3/2020

    COVID-19 Status Update

    Season: 5 score week shoots from May 1st to may 18th. We would be required to shoot multiple times per week/weekend. That will be the spring season.
    *No State Tournament
    **Nationals are postponed

    Refunds start April 2nd to April 12th.
    If you want a refund please fill out this form so I can get the process started. Refunds will be issues around mid may.

    Now, this is what I know;
    If you have not registered yet it is not too late to register, you would be eligible for Option A
    Option A: If you don't ask for a refund and the season is canceled or not, the league will send you a free limited edition T-Shirt and the quarterly magazine and seniors are eligible to apply for the leagues scholarships.
    Option B: If you get a refund you will not get either.

    Now, my personal opinion talking to our school admin is that the school year will most likely be closed longer. Obviously no one knows for sure and for how long or it will even be extended. So, I am just sharing what I know and what I have heard so, each family can make the most informed decisions since the refund window is very short. Now, I am ready and willing to continue the season and as long as we have the minimum of 5 kids on the team and we are allowed to shoot .We are at the descression of the district or school is closed longer than our season permits.

    Any questions please reach out to me and I am still hopeful we will have a season. mgembar@lancasterschools.org or REMIND

    Again only fill out this form if you want a refund. We truly hope everyone is healthy and happy
