All Cancelation Notices will be posted on our web site and Facebook, we will also utilize the Remind School Communication app to notify everyone of any cancellations. Remind is a Free one-way communication App that does not share individual phone numbers. Download the Remind app, select join a class, enter the 6-digit code above. The decision to cancel practice due to the weather conditions is a judgment call. We will make every attempt to decide about practice cancelations by 5:00 p.m. the day of practice. It is your responsibility to ensure we have accurate current contact information on file. If you have not provided a number to receive the Remind, check your e-mail or check the Web site, check the Air Capital Flyers Facebook page before heading to practice on days we have questionable weather.



Softball Roster Updates


I’ve updated roster based on who appeared or has contacted me about playing.  Based on the number of athletes playing several roster adjustments have been made.  Two out of the original Softball League dates have been confirmed with locations.

Breakfast Fundraiser

Dear Air Capital Flyers and Families,

We have been looking for different fundraisers for the AC Flyers program.   

We are excited to announce that beginning January 2018, we will begin a new monthly fundraiser serving breakfast the first Saturday of the month at the Oaklawn Community Center.   Our immediate need is for anyone who would like to serve on the breakfast committee. This committee will coordinate volunteers, spread the word, and work on donations.  Linda Hingst is going to be our breakfast coordinator.  You may contact Linda at 316-796-9976 or lrhingst@gmail.comif you would like to serve on the breakfast committee.

Each Flyer or family will be expected to volunteer one Saturday every six months.  It will take approximately 6 adult volunteers and 4 Flyers per Saturday to cook, cashier, set up, serve and clean up.   

Once our committee has been established, we will be notifying everyone who to contact as to what date you would like to sign up to help.   

We are hoping that all Flyers will spread the word to their friends and family of this new fundraiser and invite them to come enjoy our breakfast.
