There have recently been some scheduling changes for practice and game times for the upcoming season. Check the Calendar section for complete details and a full practice and game schedule.
In terms of games, the JV Schedule has been updated to reflect the locations of the Pine Bush and Port Jervis games to AWAY. They had previously been listed as home games for both the Junior Varsity and Varsity teams.
As far as practice goes, we will have an afternoon practice only on Tuesday, August 25th. Practice will run from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM, with the final hour being an intersquad controlled scrimmage. From 6:00-7:00 we hold what we call our Second-Annual "Navy White Intrasquad Game" that will pit divided teams of offensive and defensive players versus each other in an effort to add intensity to our preparations for the 2009 season. This year both the Varisty and JV will partake in the Navy-White Game, and all parents and supporters of the Program are invided to attend.
Immediately following that Scrimmage on the 25th, from 7:00-8:00 PM, we will hold our Parents' Informational Meeting right on the hill by the practice field. The purpose of this meeting is to give parents information regarding player/parent/coach expectations, team schedules, team dinners, and to keep open the lines of communication between the coaching staff and our players' families. At least 1 parent/guardian of our players are strongly encouraged to attend this meeting.
The final update to our fall schedule comes on Labor Day, September 7th. This opens the first week of school, and because of this we will hold practice from 2:45-5:30 PM, as if it were a regular school day. This brings consistency to the week's schedule, as all practices will be at the same time.
If any parent or guardian has a question or concern about the schedule, please do not hesitate to contact Coach Vegliando.
