Practice:

- Official practice for Grades 9-12 begins on November 15 at 3:00pm at the high school.

- During the school year, we will meet at the high school for all levels. On certain days, we MAY meet at another location. Coaches will communicate this information as needed via REMIND, and more in-depth updates will be shared.

- There is a bus that will drop Maple Ave. students at the high school. From there, they can change in our locker room and meet with the high school athletes.

- 6 days a week, Monday- Saturday. Sometimes we have meets on Sunday. If that is the case you will get a weekday off. On school days practice will start at 3:00 sharp and finish between around 5pm (each event group may be a little different.
