First Saturday Tournament of the year

Dear Friends,

Just a quick note to remind everyone that our first tournament is this weekend at Clague. To participate, students need to be at Clague no later than 8:30 Saturday morning with pencil, paper, and their AG notebooks. When they enter the cafeteria, they will find the sign-in sheet for Clague students, and will then have about an hour to practice with teammates and get ready for the tournament. Around 9:30 we will move all students out into the lobby so we can set up, and will then bring everyone back in to start the tournament around 10am. The students will play three 35 minute rounds against students from other teams from Ann Arbor, Jackson, Detroit, Northville, Utica, Ypsilanti and other cities. The tournament will be over between 12 and 12:30.

Parents are welcome to attend, although we ask that parents not talk or communicate with the students during the competition.

Good Luck to all our students

Captains for this year

For the first time ever, six captains!:
(in no particular order)


I am reminded of a conversation between Eleanor Roosevelt and Harry Truman when she informed him that FDR had died and he was now president  He asked her if there was anything he could do to help her.  She replied:
"Is there anything that we can do for you?  For you are the one in trouble now"

Congrats to all our captains, and good luck on the adventure ahead.

Clague AG 2014-15

Welcome Back,

I hope everyone had an enjoyable and restful summer vacation. Academic Games begins for all interested students begins this Friday Afternoon from 3-5 pm. Our practice schedule will remain the same this year as it was last year, Mondays 7-9 pm, and Fridays after school until 5pm.

Our first Saturday tournament will be September 27th at Clague. A complete schedule is posted to the right, and is included in the Welcome Letter that is also posted on the right. Please make sure to complete the registration form attached to the welcome letter and bring it with you to your first practice.
We are lucky this year to have two new additions to our coaching team: 
Nick Wang is a former AG player from Clague and Huron who graduated in 2013 from Yale and came home to work for the UofM and coach AG.  Last year he helped coach a very successful team at King to their best finish in school history. 

Yuxuan Chen is a 2014 Skyline graduate in her first year at UofM, who also had a very successful AG career at Clague and in HS.
We look forward to working with both of them this year, and feel confident that their additions will make our team that much harder to beat this year!
