Inclimate weather in the forecast

The forecast is calling for thunderstorms this afternoon and they may hit or not during our practices.

Coaches, after 4:00 pm weekdays you are responsible for making the call on whether or not your team will be practicing and notify your team.

Parents, if it is questionable please stay around practice, just in case a pop-up storm happens.

And as always err on the side of caution! Let’s hope we get the practice is in tonight.
