COMETS FIELD HOCKEY
Reminders for the upcoming 2015 season
Practice starts on August 17th for varsity, junior varsity, and incoming freshmen who are trying out for the team.
Practice will start in the middle school cafeteria at 9:00 am for the first day. We will be on the grass and the turf so please bring shoes for both. We will have a lunch break somewhere between 11:00 and 12:00.
For the remainder of preseason, practice will be held from 11:00-2:00 without a lunch break. Please eat before you come to practice. You might want to bring some small snacks that can be eaten in between drills (applesauce, Go-Go Squeezes, etc). You should also hydrate well in the morning before coming to practice.
Junior High practice will start on August 24th from 3:00-5:00. Practice will be held on the grass field next to the high school (baseball field).
Make sure you have your physical and concussion impact statement completed so that you can practice on August 17th or August 24th (junior high).
All players must wear certified goggles and a colored (not clear) mouthguard when playing or completing drills. Please make sure you have these before practice starts.
ALL FIELD HOCKEY PLAYERS (EXCLUDES GOALKEEPERS) MUST PURCHASE APPROVED GOGGLES IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE. THE GOGGLES MUST MEET THE ASTM F2713-09 STANDARD*. THE ASTM-F2713-09 DESIGNATION MUST BE VISIBLE ON THE GOGGLES.
