What should we expect for the first practice?

Come with your athlete ready to play! That means running shoes, athletic shorts/t-shirt, hair out of face, etc. Knee pads are great if you have them, but not required. Bring a water bottle if able.

Please bring your completed waivers and payment in cash or check (if not paid online). If you do not bring completed waivers, please have a parent/guardian available to complete them at the first practice.

Parents/family are welcome to stay and watch practices but are not required. Most facilities have bleachers or some kind of waiting area. If you do not stay, please be sure to return to pick-up your athlete on time.

Feel free to ask any of our friendly coaches for help if you have questions!
