What a fantastic summer of conditioning! It’s hard to believe the season is upon us. Nike had a great first week of practice, and the Brooks girls did a great job last week – working hard all the way to the end.
Commitment & Mileage: Don’t forget to turn in your mileage calendars to Coach McPherson! If it’s easier, email your calendar to firstname.lastname@example.org. Today (Sunday, August 14th) is the last day for commitment and summer mileage.
No athlete will be allowed to practice without turning in a valid sports physical. Here is a link to the form: MHSAA Physical Form . If you haven’t turned yours in, bring it to the first day of practice.
