Physical Notification

                       Air Capital Flyers Special Olympics

5 Month Physical Renewal Notification


Most, if not all athletes physical expire as of December 31, 2016, Please check the report below to confirm your physical status.


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.  Special Olympics will accept the Kansas High School physical form as an acceptable form, however, YOU still must also sign and complete contact section of the Special Olympics form for your physical to be valid.  Any physicals submitted will be rejected without the contact section being completed and a signature. Any valid 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, scan & email the form to my gmail address or mail the form to my home address noted below.  I will manage submitting your updated form to both the State and Area offices.


The Special Olympics form is located under the Forms page of –  titled 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.

Carlos O’Kelly’s Fundraiser


Carlos O’Kelly’s and the Flyers are teaming up for a fundraiser Sunday August 7th. 100% of all desserts sold that day will be donated to the Flyers.


This is our opportunity to help raise funds to cover team expenses such as rental fees, state registration and travel expenses.   All 4 Carlos O’Kelly’s locations are involved in this fundraiser, so one of them should be close to home.  We as a team are responsible to spread the word, and cover 2 short shifts at each restaurant that Sunday.


I’m in need of 2 adults and 2-3 athletes at each location for the shifts listed below. We will help greet patrons at each restaurant and let them know today is the day to save room for dessert or order dessert to-go.    We will also keep an eye on the diners and remind them at their table, in a low key manner promoting the Flyers, to save room for dessert or to order dessert to-go.    I’m also working on a business card size promotional hand out for the restaurants that day.


I believe they would like those volunteering to arrive a few minutes early to meet the Carlos O’Kelly’s Staff and get any final instructions.


This is a fun way for the Flyers to raise funds and meet the community.

Group Me App:

Group Me App:

This afternoon, my goal was simply to establish a couple Group Me Distribution list that might be needed over the next few days.  I’d I realize that establishing the list would automatically send out a notification and start a string of text.  I would have issued the following statement from as part of the notification.

Group Me App is a new communication tool that I’m trying to utilize to notify athletes, parents, coaches and staff that practice has been canceled. This Softball Group Me text is not a chat room for athletes.  This tool is intended for a one-way communication from the team.  Those of you that continue to text via the Group Me distribution text, will be removed and will not receive any type of courtesy text from the team.  Or if you elect on your own to remove yourself from the group, you will be required to check the web site, or Facebook or check your emails assuming you are part of the automatic post distribution list. (You signed up for the Newsletter via the web site)

This softball season has been more than a communication challenge.  A Weather Update Slider has been added to the web site to assist with this matter.  Those of you that signed up for the Newsletter on the web site received a Cancellation Notice email.  I’ve even sent individual or group text via my IPhone, yet way too many athletes are still appearing at Oaklawn for practice or appeared at that Saturday’s league play when notifications were issued.  I believe the amount of text issued in a short period of time through my phone carrier overload their system and get hung up and are not delivered, or delivered late.  Therefore, if you do not take the time to check the web site or Facebook, chances are you are not received the cancellation notification.

The team is doing everything we can to be efficient and effective in our communication.  We try very hard to respect your time and energy.  Please be respectful of all the individuals that are part of your Group Me Distribution list by not replying to any of the message issued via Group Me.  If you have a question sent it directly to me via the normal channels of communication you utilized in the past.
