Absence Info

All absence notifications will now be handled through our new absence email address:

Uniform Care

Uniforms do not come home after every parade. Directors will advise the kids after a parade if they should take their uniforms home to launder. Once taken home, uniforms will need to be brought back for the next parade.

Care instructions: • Wash uniforms in cold water. • Use non-chlorine laundry detergent. • Turn vest inside out and zip shut before washing. • Uniforms should be hung to dry and should not be put in the dryer. • Vipers/guard shoes are not to be stored in the uniform bag. • Dirty socks are not to be stored in the uniform bag

If at anytime there is an issue with a uniform, please let staff or a board member know right away so the issue can be resolved.

Equipment Use

All 728 Cadets equipment being used by a student for 728 Cadets purposes will need to have a waiver signed by the student and parent/guardian. These waivers will be sent home with the student once the directors have set up their player placement within their group.

If a student would like to check out 728 Cadets property for personal use, the student will need to fill out a Property Check-Out Form.To approve their request, they will need their director’s verbal approval along with written approval of a current board member on the check-out form. Staff does not take request forms and is not responsible for ensuring the form is turned into a current board member. Any damage that occurs while being used outside of the 728 Cadets organization may be charged to the student/requestor that has checked-out that item.
