Practices this season will be on Tuesdays and Fridays from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Bear Creek Intermediate School.

All players should wear comfortable play clothes and bring a water bottle.

Shin guards are mandatory.  If your child forgets their shin guards, they will not be allowed to participate in the practice.

The ball is the best teacher.  Each player should bring a size #X ball to every practice.  Many drills require each child to have a ball.  If your child does not have a ball he/she will not be getting the maximum out of the practice.

Put the responsibility on your child to remember three things (shin guards, ball and water bottle) before you leave the house for practice.

I will be introducing various skill drills to your child throughout the season.  Please encourage your child to practice these drills during the week.

If your child will be unable to attend a practice or a game, please let me know as soon as possible.

Please show up 30 minutes early for each game so we can warm up before the game.  In case of rain, please come to the fields unless otherwise instructed.

Suggested refreshments for games are orange slices for the players at half-time or a soda or fruit drink for after the game.  Please check the game schedule attached for your day to bring refreshments.

If you remain on the same team for the spring, you will use the same uniform from the fall.

I am looking forward to working with your children this season and hope we can all have fun.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at any time.

Thanks,
