Preparing for Practice:

It is mandatory to have a physical before you can begin to practice. Please turn in proof of your physical and a photocopy of your birth certificate on your first day of practice to your coach. PLEASE NOTE:  Most birth certificates contain the Social Security Numbers of the parents.  Make sure to safeguard this information when you are making a copy of your birth certificates.

All practice uniforms and pads will be fitted and assigned to each player on Equipment Day. Also available on Equipment Day will be the popular 5-pocket pad shorts. The 5-pocket pad shorts allow more proper and stable fit of the 2 hip pads, 2 thigh pads and the tail pad. Players at all levels will enjoy more freedom of movement and considerably more comfort with the 5-pocket pad shorts. Since it is an under-garment the program does not furnish them due to sanitary reasons, but they are available to purchase at our program’s cost.

The first three days of practice are primarily physical conditioning. You are required to wear your helmet, mouthpiece, rubber football cleats or fiberglass male post type (no metal cleats are allowed), loose fitting shorts, cup and shirt. Also remember to bring your own WATER container. After three days of conditioning, you will need to come in your full practice uniform.
