ABOUT OUR BEAR CLAW!
Native Americans use symbols & designs to represent specific ideas or cultural expressions. The bear is a powerful guardian; physical strength & leadership! The bear symbolizes sweetness of life and introspection. The bear claw was used to summon the power of the animal. The bear tracks can signify strength and well being, leadership and authority.

FEES AND DOCS!
All fee balances were due by 12/22/19 and some of you haven't even followed the agreement requirement. We have teams that have not turned in complete basket donations at $15 per player, or the $99 flat fund-raising fee. These are needed for your son to resume training! Please bring your fees current, you should have cancelled checks to know your total. If not, see Korbs. We cannot enter early bird tournaments for your team until this is handled. Team Snap has finally allowed a classic payment option for us and we will be popiulating this through January 8th. Thank you.
CHECKS!
You should always ONLY write a check to Prospects Travel Baseball or Lincoln-Way Prospects. You should only mail a check to Coach Korbel but it should be dropped off at the clubhouse. You cannot issue checks to personal names, mail to non-LWP addresses or write to Xposure. It is as stated above, in the agreement and was reviewed at the parent meeting!
TEAMS NEED TO MEET DUE DATES FOR ALL PLAYERS TO PREVENT SCHEDULING DELAYS!
It is unacceptable to have some teams without 100% agreement submission, basket donations, fund-raising flat fees paid and membership fees up-to-date. LWP delivers what we said, and we expect the same in return to keep operating smoothly.
