Teams often require funds in order to participate in tournaments or purchase other items for the team players, such as trophies, etc. & will often hold fundraising events on their own to reduce the amount of funds required directly from parents. It's a good idea to discuss your teams goals with your coach & parents & come to a mutual concensus on the amount of fundraising to be done by your team.
Game snacks are especially popular with younger players, but older ones enjoy them too! It is best to schedule a family for each game to be the treat-bearers (this can be done on your game schedule), or one family can manager the freezies for the season! It is up to your team to determine if this is something your team wants to do.
This is generally your last function of the season, a time to give the players their trophies or plaques (optional), recognize your coaches & parents that helped out throughout the season & just have a good time! It is often a good idea to delegate the planning of the party to another team parent. Because the weather is great during the end of box season, the possibilities are endless. Book a pool, plan a picnic or barbeque, etc. Players always look forward to their wind-up parent & it is the last team event they'll have a memory from, so make it a good one!
