Hello Folks -
I hope everyone's season has gone well, or is still going. To those of you playing next weekend in the GHYLA Playoffs - good luck, to our High School Players in THSLL City Playoffs this week - Good Luck, to our private school players who have SPC coming up, Good Luck, and to any high school players moving on to THSLL State Playoffs - Good Luck. It has been great to see many of you on the fields this spring across the sideline.
Well Summer is just about here and it's time to really start thinking about our summer play.
I'm sorry for the delay in getting this schedule out, but was working hard to offer practice locations around town to help everyone a little bit. I'm hopeful that this schedule allows everyone the most time possible at our practices, as we pride ourselves on providing the best practice experience out there with great coaching.
Full practice schedule is attached in excel form. It can also be found on the website.

2022-2020 - A note to think about - with the week gap between weekends, it might not be a bad idea to book one way into Baltimore and one way out of Rochester or Buffalo NY and use the week in between to visit some schools, tour some colleges, etc. There is a HUGE array of types, sizes, and locations for schools and an EVEN BIGGER part of college is looking at those things for fit. You could certainly spend your time in worse ways that week. Just a suggestion.
