Practice is held every day after school, unless otherwise notified, from 3:30 PM-5:30 PM.
Directly after school, players MUST use the time to meet teachers for office hours or for study hall. This includes EVERY PLAYER. Study hall hours will be from Monday to Thursday. If there is "nothing" to do, then head to the gym. We are a team and have to act like it now. If I see there has been a consistent positive performance in grades, I will take away study hall.
Players must be finished with prehab and warmed up by 3:30. Report to the gym by 2:45 PM.
