The practice schedules below reflect our best projections for the Fall season, and are based on several years of optimization. In spite of that, the scheduled may need to be adjusted to accomodate weather, access to coaches and/or equipment, or to optimize the composition of training groups. These changes may include weekly practice frequency, practice time/or duration, and the shortening or lengthening of a season. Should the need for any adjustments become apparent, we will notify families ahead of time and work with you as needed to make the transition.
