2016-17 fall soccer and cross country practice schedule

· Featured Posts, spotlight

4 – 7 Soccer.

3:15 – 4:30  Tue., Thur.

Brandon will run practice on the lower field from 3:15 to 4:30 on Tuesday and Thursday. When games begin, he will have most games on Tuesdays, thereby not affecting other activities.


HS Boys and Girls.

3:15 – 5:30 Mon. – Fri.

Curtis will run the two high school teams together on the upper field from 3:15 to 5:30 at the latest Monday through Friday. As this program becomes more formal, we are pushing to make the commitment through a full week of practice.  When games begin there will be many days in the week when boys won’t practice because of a girls game, and vice versa! There may be occasional sessions at Zena Road, but always back at WDS by 5;30.


Cross Country

Roy Verspoor will run practice from 3:15 to 5pm Monday through Thursday. This also pushes the runners to a more formal commitment. He may also, with Matthew run sessions at the Meadow at Zena Road. All HVAL Invitationals are listed on his schedule, and the team can therefore pick the ones they are most capable of running in!
