Every player should have written one of these exams before starting in September. See your high school counsellor about these exams as they should be written while you are in high school. Most schools in the USA require you to have a SAT score of 850 or an ACT score of 19. The ACT/SAT cannot be written after a student has started at a post-secondary institution. In most cases, a GPA of 2.00 in 24 hours of classes will get you accepted into programs at institutions you may end up transferring to.
Each player is responsible for finding their own housing and it is suggested that since Lethbridge is a college/university city that this be looked into early in the summer as these accommodations do fill up. Average housing costs are around $500 per month.

Her phone number is 403-320-3202 (ext. 5532) and her e-mail address is email@example.com.
