All the practices will be held at , Stradford Park 241 Butterfield Dr. Bloomingdale,they will be from 6p-8p and please make sure your FB player has plenty to drink each night, you should consider a insulated reusable container vs. water bottles.
To make the first week as smooth as possible we will have an information table set up on the sidewalk area manned by Board Members in white and blue Polo shirts to answer any questions, find out your kids assigned level, or find out where they should be.
The first week, the entire level will practice together, at the end of the first week the level will be split into their prospective teams ( Wed for Flag /Friday for Tackle).
Parents are more than welcome to stay and watch the practices……. you must remain either near the tree line or sidewalk area depending on your location. Parents are NOT ALLOWED on the practice fields, please cooperate with us on this.
