Open practices will begin on the following dates at the middle school field from 3 pm-5 pm. Physicals are not required to attend open practices. These are not mandatory, but they will allow me to see the player's skill set and dedication to the sport so we can be ready for the season. Please attend as many open practices as possible and spread the word to your fellow teammates or anyone who is interested in playing. Be sure to bring a water bottle and appropriate gear. The following open practices will be as followed:
- Mon., August 7th - 3-5 pm
- Wed., August 9th - 3-5 pm
- Mon., August 14th - 3-5 pm
- Wed., August 16th - 3-5 pm
Mandatory practices for the season will begin Monday, August 21st from 3:00 pm-5:00 pm (8/21, 8/22, 8/23, 8/24). We will not have practice on Friday, August 25th, September 1st or Monday, September 5th. Players must have their physical paperwork turned into the Athletic Office in order to attend mandatory practices. Practices during the school year will be after school from 3-5 pm. Players should also come prepared with running shoes for mandatory practices.
'Tryouts': The team roster allows us to have as many players as there are uniforms. If there are excess players, I will be forced to cut, and the way I will make that decision will be based on attendance, attitude, and skills. I will be evaluating the girls throughout the first official week of practice (8/21-8/24) plus whatever I see at the open practices, and will inform everyone of the final roster via email on 8/25. I will personally follow up with those who did not make the team on the first day of school.
Equipment: Players are expected to wear shinguards, cleats, and socks to all practices. Please bring your own water bottle for practices. Goalies please bring your gloves. Running shoes should be brought to mandatory practices for conditioning. Also, those who need it, please bring your inhaler and/or EpiPen.
Bad weather: If the weather is not looking good for open practices, we will be cancelling and I will post a message on the Home Page of this website under News. If there is bad weather after the official start of the season (8/21), we will be looking to hold indoor practices if space is available; otherwise we will be forced to cancel. Players need to come prepared with sneakers (indoor) and cleats (outdoor) to practice for both.
Games: Our first game is September 8th. Please see the calendar for updates throughout the season and 'Games' tab for the 2017-2018 full game schedule.
