Fall Training and Practice
Players and Parents,
For players not participating in a fall sport we will have some optional opportunities for players to continue to improve in the off-season.
We will be in the weight room three days per week: Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. From 3:45 - 4:45 or when players finish their programs. On weeks where we don't have school on Monday we will cancel that session and move it to Friday. Weights start next week, Monday August 28th. The one rule in the weight room is to have good shoes - no Converse, no Nike airs.
Also, we will have a practice on Wednesdays starting next week at a location to be determined from 4:15 - 6:00. When we have that location known I will communicate it. These will be fully padded.
Both options are open to all players. There is nothing to sign up for. Just show up.
Always a Warrior,
Under Armour Varsity Requirements
There have been questions and discussion around what is actually required of the varsity players regarding attire based on the new wonderful partnership we have with Under Armour. Below is a summary...
* Varsity players are required to wear UA "from head to toe" which is defined as: gloves, practice gear (practice pinnie/practice shorts/socks), game gear (uniforms/socks/cleats), sideline/travel gear (jackets/sweats/casual shoes). All mandatory apparel (except gloves) will be provided as part of the Varsity Player Pack.
* Under Armor will provide the Varsity team with 24 pairs of shoes, the board budget will allocate funds to subsidize the remaining 10-12 pairs (depending on team size).
* We recognize that you have purchased other Spirit Wear over the years, however the BOD encourages all parents to wear your newly purchased Under Armor Spiritwear at all games to show your support for our new partner!
* Under Armor will provide all varsity players with one of their new lacrosse heads at the start of each season. Players are NOT required to use Under Armor heads or shafts.
