Important Reminders ...

Practice Starts This Week!

  • Location
    • Wirth Park - enter off Pilgrim Road.
    • We meet at the large shelter that is in the grassy area between the aquatic center parking lot and the baseball diamonds.
    • Supervision starts 10 minutes prior to practice.
  • Practice Dress Code
    • T-shirt, shorts (no skirts or jean shorts), closed toe athletic shoes.
    • Hair should be pulled away from your face and up in a high centered ponytail at all times.
    • Remove all jewelry - earrings, necklaces, bracelets, anklets, etc.
  • What to Bring
    • Large Water bottle
    • Sunscreen/bug spray (parent discretion)
    • Required medications (i.e., inhaler, epi pen, allergy medicines, etc)
  • What to Expect
    • We will always start as a large group to warm-up, stretch, and condition together.  We will continue as a large group to learn new material, then we will break into separate game teams for private practice.
    • We will always end practice with a team showcase, where each team will show off something they learned that day.  Parents and family are welcome to come and watch our daily showcases!  Just come on up to the shelter and grab a seat :)
  • Inclement Weather Procedures
    • All families are requested to subscribe to our Remind app - it is an app that Coach Michelle uses that will send text messages to all families that are subscribed to the class.  
    • In case of practice cancellation due to an active weather warning, Coach Michelle will use the Remind app to send out the text that practice is cancelled.  Every attempt is made to follow the weather forecast and radars in case of forecasted weather events.  A final decision will be made 30 minutes prior to practice start if practice will be cancelled.
    • If a weather event occurs during practice, we will seek shelter at the aquatic center, and the Remind app will be used to inform parents that they should come to pick up their children as soon as possible.
    • Please visit this link to enter your name and mobile phone number to subscribe to our Remind app. You are also given the option to enter your email address.  In order to receive immediate text messages regarding inclement weather and practice cancellations, you must enter your mobile phone number.
    • If you are a returning JLC family, you need to re-subscribe to the app!  All data was deleted at the end of last season.
