The Lakota T-Birds is once again supporting the community through a Toys for Tots toy drive!  We need your help to make this another successful event!


Your team can win an end of season Pizza Party just by participating!!!    

- For every 10 toys your team collects, you will receive one chance in a random drawing.   Collect 20 toys, receive 2 chances, 30 toys – 3 chances, etc.  


We ask that you help us advertise with your teams and help us by collecting toys from your team… your enthusiasm and assistance will lead to lots of toys for a great cause! 

We are collecting new, unwrapped toys!


There are a couple of ways you can drop off your team’s toys!

(1)    We will have a drop off table at Union Elementary on Saturday, December 10 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.   Drop your team’s toys off, or for the 2nd and 3rd grade in-house teams, just have your parents bring them to the game! 

(2)    Email me ( ) and I’ll either arrange to pick them up from you, or we’ll set up a time when you can drop them off to me.  We will need all toys by December 15. 


Please let me know if you have any questions!   Thank you in advance,

Ron Beerman - 513-608-7400

Again for 2016-17

All head and assistant coaches will need to take the free On-Line Stare of Ohio Concussion training course to be able to coach a team again this year if you did not already do so last year (certification is good for 3 years).  Coaches need to email a copy of their on-line training certificate to Kathy Steen prior to equipment pickup day on 11/1 (we recommend you provide this information no later than 10/21).  Parents who wish to assist in games or practices are also required to take the training and register with the TBird coordinator.
