Basketball Athlete Help with Transportation

Good Morning – we have a basketball athlete who is interested in participating, but is struggling to figure out transportation. The athlete would be on the Black Pantheres 3 on 3 team, but hasn’t made it to a practice or game yet. She’s competed in the past, but her current situation has changed.

The athletes location – O’Fallon Lakes Apartments which is off of Bryan Road.

If you are interested in helping – please email me edmund.mulholland@fhsdschools.org and we can go over more details.

A few things to note

This tournament is NOT at Francis Howell Central High School this year.  All games will be played at Francis Howell High School – Please enter on the football stadium side of the building.

7001 MO-94

St. Charles, MO 63304

I will have directional signs up around the school, but please enter though the side doors closest to the football stadium, the front doors of this building will be locked.

Spectators should proceed to the upper bowl to watch games on Courts 1A and 1B.  While some handicapped-accessible seating will be available on the gym floor, all spectator and family seating will be on the second level, looking down at the courts.  Court 2A and 2B will have floor-level seating.  

Please encourage families to visit the Francis Howell Resource Fair (see attached flyer) in the downtime between games.

Concessions will be available for purchase, and Francis Howell students will be offering a Victory Village for entertainment between games as well. Please encourage your athletes to bring their own water bottles.  Please remind parents and assistant coaches that Francis Howell varsity basketball players will be refereeing and scorekeeping these games; while they know the game well, it is intimidating to referee a game so only encouraging words from your agency, please! 

Please spread the word for another exciting social opportunity for your athletes from our friends at St. Louis University!  Similar to their spring prom event, the Special Olympics Club on campus is offering a free winter formal dance for any interested athletes!  Please see the invitation and link to RSVP below!
