Weekly Update Sept. 3rd

Hello everyone,
Last nights games were so exciting. Both teams played so well. I hope you all had fun and enjoyed watching your daughters in action.
Tuesdays practice we will be splitting the two teams into overlapping hour and a half practices.
Please remember to always come 20 minutes before practice is scheduled to gear up and get ready for warm up.
Weekly Schedule Sept. 3rd:
Mon, 3rd: No field hockey
Tues, 4th: JV 5:30-7pm and V 6:30-8pm on Turf

Fri, 7th: Game @ Cathedral Catholic HS– JV @ 3:30pm– V @ 4:30pm. Bus departs at 1:00pm. (Cathedral FH games are played on their lower Field Hockey field not in their Football Stadium)
***Please remember green slips if you plan on not riding the bus, whether you ride one way or not at all***
Riding the bus and green slips– Just a reminder, each player must ride the bus with the team to and from the school as it is consider school time. If you want to drive your player to Cathedral or home after the game from Cathedral, one or both ways, she must obtain a green slip pass from Ms. Grosley in the Athletics office by Wednesday end of school. All green slips must be turned into me by Thursdays practice. Parents need to write a note excusing your child from riding the bus and the note must specify to, from or both ways. There are no exceptions. Once we are at the away school parents can not take their child home in their private vehicle if they do not have a green slip.
The Bus will depart PHS at 1:00pm from the front of the school, be there promptly with all of your gear. All players will be released from class at 12:45pm and need to go directly to a restroom and change into their green skirts and black warm up shirt and have their green game jersey and green game socks (away uniform). All players need to inform their 5th period teachers early in the week that they will be gone for the field hockey away game on Friday.
Please keep in mind the bus travels just as fast as everyone else. The bus leaves the away school after the end of the second game and drives straight to PHS. Be mindful that us coaches have to ride the bus with your daughters and can’t leave until all players are picked up.
thank you all for your support,
Coach Kim
