The decision to not attend the 2015 State basketball hold in Hays Kansas has been made. Yes, I know this is not the news that any of you wanted to hear, nor is it the news I wanted to deliver. As expressed in both the assessment and seasonal basketball handouts already published. This decision is based on three key factors: 1) Funds 2) Transportation 3) Hotel Accommodations.
Efforts are being made to raise more funds as corporate letters continue to be mailed weekly. Coach Regina is exploring which local restaurants we qualify to participate in their charitable giving programs. We will continue to explore additional fundraising opportunities but we will need each of you participate in this activities to help us reach out financial goals.
Transportation and hotel accommodations played an equal role, if not more of a role in this decision. Although, several athletes have decided not to continue with basketball this season. We still do not have enough hotel rooms reserved, nor are we able to locate enough rooms to house our growth.
Several of you may wonder about the $23 participation fee charged for basketball. This fee is just that, a participation fee and will not be refunded. It was not a state registration fee or a meal fee for state. I do not have any plans at this time to enforce a participation fee for all sports. However, sport that include travel or facility fees will have a small participation fee assigned.
I will continue to express my concerns to the state Special Olympics Kansas office regarding how this events has out grown Hays Kansas. A super host of this Special Olympics event, but restructuring this event has to take place.
Food for thought: If the Flyers volunteer based program ends all fundraising activities and we were to become a pay to play program totally funded by participation fees and maintained our current team size. This years’ actual basketball participation fee, including the cost to travel to Hays would have been $188 per athletes.
Athletes: 138 = Total No. Registered: 169
$188 x 169 = $31,772 budget for basket had we attended the state tournament.
Several Air Capital Flyers coaches are taking the plunge or participating in the strut. You can support them by join a team, making a donation or attending this event Saturday.
Any donations made through the www.plungeks.org website on one of the Flyers coaches page, is split 50/50 between our local program and the state office. Every donation counts, no matter the size of the donation….
Come Join The Fun…

According to our records, your current physical will expire as of December 31, 2014. In order to participate in Special Olympics next year, you will need a new physical on file with the Flyers and Special Olympics Kansas.
Since several of our team members will be completing their school physicals in the upcoming weeks, we wanted to get this notification to you which would allow you to complete both forms at one time. It has taken sometime, but we have convinced Special Olympics Kansas to accept the Kansas High School physical form as an acceptable form, however, YOU still must sign and date the Special Olympics form for your physical to be valid. Any physical forms returned to me between now and the first of the year will be good for 2 years.
You may either bring your completed form to practice or mail it to my home address. I will see to it that both the State and Area offices receive a copy of your new physical.
Please retrieve the required physical form from our web site, go to www.acflyers.com, Forms, Special Olympics Kansas Physical form.
Unless you have been notified, you do not need to complete the Down Syndromes form, as this form is a one-time enrollment form.
A few of you have issued me a physical this week, however, this report will not reflect your submittal based on when this report was ran.
