BOYS' SOCCER PRACTICE BEGINS THIS THURSDAY, 8/2/18!
Attention Soccer Players!
Coach Bowen has advised that boys' SOCCER PRACTICE begins THIS Thursday, 8/2/18!
Practices will be held beginning Thursday (8/2/18) and Friday (8/3/18), then each Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday going forward. There are TWO practices each day to get ready for the preseason tournament on August 9th!
Morning practice times are 7:00am to 8:30am. Afternoon practices are from 3:00pm to 4:30pm.
All practices will be held at John Anderson Park on the south field. **Easiest entry is from 140th St, then North on 12th Street.** [Update for week of 3/5/18: NO practice Monday, practice ends 6:30pm rest of week until Daylight Savings time begins on 3/11/18.]
The official address of the practice field is 4701 E 135 St, Grandview, MO 64030.
However, if you place that address in your GPS, it may take you to the front side of the park (off 135th Street), but the soccer field that we use is towards the back of the park. So, if you drop the players there, they will have a pretty good walk to get there.
So, the best entrance is from the 140th Street exit from 71 Hwy (I-49). Turn West from the highway on 140th Street, which will curve and turn into 139th Street. You will then turn right on 10th Terrace and follow that street all the way to the end where it dead ends at the park. This is a good place for the 'drop off'. But you might want to take 11th Street for pick up, as it will take you into the parking lot of the park. While this is a little longer walk for the players, it will allow you to park and wait for them at the end of practice.
All players should come equipped with the following to EVERY practice:
Also, be sure all players have their signed General Release forms completed by the 1st day of practice. The necessary forms are attached. Sports Physicals are due prior to the 1st game (August 9th). Again, if they have already played a sport this school year, the physical should already be on file as well. Both forms are attached here for your convenience.
Sport participation fees are $100.00 (per sport) and are also due PRIOR to the 1st game (August 9th), in order to be eligible to play in the game.
Note: If you need an option for where to have the physical done, Dr. Acosta, on Main Street in Grandview, can typically perform sport physicals on a walk-in basis for around $25.
