Most practices and games are in the mornings, and outdoors, It is reccommended student have the following things available.
- Athletic Clothing: Students are now athletes and should dress like them. Jeans are never proper attire for sports. It is best to dress to the weather, and dress warm, because layers can always be taken off. Knit hats are good to keep the head warm for all sports during cold mornings. Some sports have specific things kids need to wear for their own safety.
Soccer – Shin Guards (outdoor soccer shoes optional)

Where can I check for cancellations?
Bad weather will be the ultimate factor in which games and practices will procede outdoors. Bad weather will alter the location of the event to inside the gym where games and rules will be modified for the number of participants.
