Note: As we are gearing up for the 2012 season, it is very important to read each email blast carefully as they cover important reminders, updates, news, etc. Email blasts are sent to each team’s Main and Alternate Contact and to mentors who opted into email blasts while registering in TIMS. It is very likely no one else on your team is receiving these messages. Please share this and future email blasts with your teams accordingly. Thank you!
