Hello everyone,
I hope you all have enjoyed your summer! Next week we begin our 2018 Field Hockey season, defending our back to back titles for the 2016 & 2017 seasons as, Palomar League Champions.
If you are receiving this email you have either played field hockey at PHS or gave me your contact info at 8th grade night at PHS. Some of the email addresses I collected were a little hard to read or I may have typos, so if you have a friend that you know was there at 8th grade night and may not have received this email please pass it along.
Next week is try outs. The schedule is as follows:
Mon, 8/13-   3:00-5:00pm   @turf  (meet on the visitor side at the 50 yard line in Stadium)
Tues, 8/14-  3:00-5:00pm  @turf

Thur, 8/16-  6:00-8:00pm   @turf
Fri, 8/17-     6:00-8:00pm   @turf (Teams announced)
***Schedule subject to change***
Please note that each day we will be meeting at the turf field for warm up but there will be days that the team may move over to grass fields (softball field) for the latter half of the day.
Players need to have their ticket to play in hand to turn in on the first day of try outs. Players may not participate without the ticket to play. Here is a link to the athletics main page where you can find how to receive a ticket to play: https://www.powayusd.com/en-US/Schools/HS/PHS/Athletics/Athletics-Home
Please be sure to be there 20 minutes prior (each day)  to turn in forms, get geared up, help with equipment set up and warm up. Also, make sure to have both a pair of cleats and a pair of regular running shoes, field hockey shin guards, eye protection, mouth guard, field hockey stick, sunblock and water. If any one has extra hockey sticks, please consider bringing them for new players to borrow on a daily basis.
You can find more info about try outs and the upcoming season on the Field Hockey website. Check the calendar for scheduling. Here is a link to the Field Hockey webpage with try out information: http://powayfieldhockey.com/
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask, email or text me. Feel free to pass along any try out information to your friends, the more the merrier. Also, it would be great if we had a few parent volunteers to help out with organizing set up and check in. Please let me know if you are available.
good luck and see you all there,

FH Weekly Update Oct. 9

Hello everyone,

Both teams played great games last night and kicked off the league season strong. Now that we have started our Palomar league games this week we will be having a pasta party at the field, Thursday the day before the RB game. The girls will practice for 1 1/2 hours and then 30 minutes for team bonding and carb loading. Both teams will have the first pasta party together at the same time, however, each team will supply their own food. Pasta Party will be on the grass field so please bring your items there.  Please remind your daughters to bring a blanket or beach towel if they want something to sit on.  The plan is to have three pasta parties from now til the end of the season.

I still have a bunch of team posters left. If you have not seen one, your daughter didn’t bring one home to you, or you need extras for grandparents/family members or sponsors please have your daughter ask me for one they are in the shed.
Also, a lot of girls are coming to practice and games very low on energy and complaining of being hungry or feeling sick because they haven’t eaten all day. As athletes it is very important for the girls to stay healthy and fuel their bodies properly. Please help them keep on top of their nutrition. Lastly, its going to be a warm week ahead please remind your daughters to hydrate-hydrate-hydrate all day every day!!!

Also, just a heads up for next week–so far there is no bus scheduled for the Escondido game on Tuesday, 9/19, the games start later in the evening and we are trying to get a bus however, I am not sure how likely we will get one.

Please try to carpool or make arrangements in case there is no bus.  I will talk with the girls at practice as well.

FH Weekly Update Aug 21

As a reminder/info for the parents:

For away games–traveling on the bus–your daughter needs to inform the teacher of the class that they will be leaving at least one day before the game. We will always tell the girls what time they are supposed to leave class and bus departure time. The girls will have 15 minutes to go to the bathroom and change into their uniform and get to the bus.  Always, change into the green skirt and black warm up shirt–they will change into game jersey after warm up/just before the game. Get to the bus as quickly as possible, as it will leave at the designated time.  All girls that ride the bus to the game have to ride the bus back to PHS, unless they get a green pass from the Athletics office. In order to obtain the green pass you will need to write a note and have your daughter take it to Arlene Grosley in Athletics office–at least one day prior to the game–get the green pass and give it to the coaches the day before the game. The girls riding the bus will have to stay for both JV and Varsity games and ride the bus back. The only way not to have to ride the bus is with a green pass. If you want your daughter to ride the bus one way and have her ride with a parent one way, your note must specify whether she is riding one way or both ways.NO EXCEPTIONS PER PUSD POLICY. Sorry parents, without the green pass there is no exception, you will have to drive to PHS and wait for the bus to arrive. Please be considerate and always be at PHS on time to pick up your daughter so the coaches can go home. The bus leaves the away school and drives straight to PHS, no stops.

Please always remember to bring green skirt, black practice shirt, both home (white) and away (green) jersey tops, and both home and away socks to every game.  There will be times when we may find the teams have to wear the home jersey at an away game.  They will always wear the matching color socks to the jersey of the game. Always bring cleats, shin guards, mouth guard, goggles, stick, water and sunblock for field hockey.
This weeks schedule:
Monday, 8/21:   practice 6:30-8am turf- Registration packets and spirit wear orders due- Uniforms will be issued after practice between 8-8:30am. Girls will need to try on uniforms at the school before they leave to make sure it fits–especially new girls/new #’s. Restrooms will be open. I will NOT have extra uniforms at the scrimmage or game and will not make exchanges before getting on the bus. Game days are hectic please be considerate. Anyone that does not want to ride the bus to Cathedral must obtain green slip from Athletics office on Monday and turn in to me before they leave practice. Arlene is there in the morning and the girls can get the pass after they get their uniforms and come right back to the field and turn in the green slip to me before going home. NO EXCEPTIONS PER PUSD POLICY.
Tuesday, 8/22:  first scrimmage of the season– @Cathedral Catholic HS– V @ 3:30– JV @4:45– Bus will depart PHS at 1:35pm–please arrive and be ready to load bus before hand. Anyone that does not want to ride the bus must obtain green slip from Athletics office on Monday and turn in to me before they leave practice. Otherwise they must ride bus.
Wednesday, 8/23:  home game v. Otay– V@ 6:15– JV@7:30– Players must arrive one hour prior to game start time, dressed and ready for warm up.
Thursday, 8/24:   practice 3:30-5:30pm grass
