Parking at Practice field

Braves Families:


Practice Parking Reminder:


The school district has asked us to remind Braves Families to not to park by, or in front of the bus garages, this includes parking by the gas tank.    All busses are to be in the garage when not in use, vehicles in the way of them having access to the garage stand risk of being blocked in and you will not have access to your vehicle until the next morning when they report for work.  The school will start using the busses next week and need all the room to get into the garages.


Please use the designated marked parking spaces in the school parking lot,  or park in the park district parking lot.


Channahon fest starts Aug 10th, there will be no access to the parking lot near Arrow Head (Pool parking lot) starting Sunday Aug 7th.  Plan accordingly


Side note:   Reminder we are on school and park district grounds, we must follow the rules of no smoking (including e-cigarettes) and no alcohol beverages.


Best Regards,

Chanooka Braves

Three Rivers Fest

Braves Families:

It is that time of year again when the Braves give back by working the Three Rivers Festival.  Part of our responsibility is to provide clean-up during and after the Festival.  We have several opportunities for your child to be part of these efforts and get paid for helping.  We will pay the kids $5 per hour for a 2-hour shift ($10 total per shift worked).  This is open to kids 9 and over.  They will be chaperoned throughout the entire shift by a parent volunteer.  If your child has a sibling that is 9 or over, they can sign up as well.  It will be first come, first serve.
If you are interested, please contact Melissa Thomas at   to secure your spot.  The available time slots are listed below:
Thursday, August 11th (6 spots available per shift - 3 kids per chaperone)

Parent Volunteer

Braves Families:

Below is the volunteer sign-up link for the 2016 season! We are so excited to get started! Each family is responsible for completing THREE parent volunteer slots before the end of the season
NEW THIS YEAR - Due to the huge commitment they make, assistant coaches' families must complete only ONE parent volunteer slot. 
The times listed are approximate -- each volunteer is actually committed for the game they sign up for - not the exact times. So, for example, if the Superlight game runs late, please stay at your volunteer slot until the game is over. Or, if the Lightweight game starts a few minutes early, please don't wait until exactly 12:00 to show up at your slot.
  • ALSO NEW THIS YEAR - Being the official team videographer for each football team is now a parent volunteer slot. THIS IS NOT SHOWN ON THE VOLUNTEER SIGN-UP LINK. You must contact your head coach, get his/her approval and commit to videotaping ALL of your team's games. He or she will then inform me who their team videographer is. This volunteer slot cannot be split between two families. You will have to go through training on how to use the Braves' cameras. We understand that it will probably end up being more hours than the normal 3 parent slots required, but this is a position that many people have requested to be included as parent volunteer hours.
