TRACK MEETS THIS WEEK
LHC will participate in two more track meets this week. Our Middle School athletes will be competing at Woodlands Christian on Thursday (2/22), and our High School athletes will be competing at the Lutheran South Academy Invitational on Saturday (2/24). Good luck to all of our Conquerors! Coaches will provide all further information to their teams.

 

UPCOMING: END OF SEASON SURVEY
Parents, another basketball season is nearly in the books, and LHC wants to hear from you! Be on the lookout for an after-season survey to arrive in your email after Regionals.

LHC strives to be about God, family, and sports— in that order— and we hope that each of you had a great season. That said, we want to hear about your family's experience as we're all in this together. 

When your survey arrives, please complete 1 per player. Responses are anonymous and will be shared with the Board to assist with decisions made for future seasons. 

Most importantly, please be detailed & candid in your responses— whether good, bad, or neutral. Your words/experiences will help shape the future of LHC.

LHC ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Don’t forget to send your clips and photos to Mat Dobson for our LHC social media pages! The season is coming to a close and we need as many clips as we can get!


Find LHC on Instagram and Facebook! Submit team highlights to be featured on Instagram! You can find instructions for how to do this below:

Feature Your Team!
A Note to Parents Regarding Sports Highlights on Instagram

Hello LHC Family,

For those following us on Instagram, we are posting video reels to highlight great LHC moments that demonstrate the values and character of our program. We’re using these reels to promote LHC Athletics and drive both excitement and engagement around games and upcoming events. If you aren’t familiar, check it out: https://instagram.com/lake_houston_conquerors

We want to continue this throughout the upcoming basketball season --- and we need your help!

We want you to submit video clips so we can post them! Highlight plays and celebrations are the most fun, but good sportsmanship and team culture moments are also important.

To submit video clips, please download the Google Photos app to your smartphone. You may need to create an account login. If you already have a Gmail account this will be super easy.

Then send an email to lhcvarsityboys@gmail.com, provide me with your Google Photos login, and I will add you to the Google Photos shared folder. Both iPhone and Android smartphones make it easy to upload videos directly from your photos/videos app.

You can join in at any time during the season, but if you want to test it out ahead of time, please get setup this week and upload a test video before the first games start.

If you are more technically inclined, we prefer video clips that are 1080P quality, 60fps, and with HDR enabled. You can film either landscape or portrait. We can make nearly anything work. We’ll edit the clips, integrate them with other highlights, and add the music and finishing touches.

Side note: Richard Sanders and I help manage the LHC YouTube page. If you are interested in uploading longer videos, including entire games, please send an email to lhcvarsityboys@gmail.comand we’ll get you setup with access and answer any questions. We can post your team’s games and make them private so only your team and coach can see them. Check out the page at https://www.youtube.com/@lhcbasketball/.

Thanks,
Mat Dobson
