Tues. September 5 1st Practice – ALL 7th & 8th Grade Homer JH 3:30-5:00PM
All players need a current physical exam on file with the JH Nurse. If you do not get a school physical, you need to get one from your own doctor. The Nurse has a form you will need to have filled out by your doctor. Physicals need to be within 30 days of the start of the season or a Health Interval form must be filled out. School Physical dates are listed above. The School Nurse will issue all players a blue card to show that they have been cleared to practice, NO blue card, NO practice, NO exceptions!
Tuesday September 5 is our 1st practice. Weekday practices will be after school from 3:30-5:30 PM at the Homer Junior High. We may have practices or games on Saturday mornings throughout the season. Players need to attend 12 practices before they can scrimmage and 16 practices before they can play in a game. Attendance is extremely important!
4) Academic Policy:
Homer Junior High School has an Academic Policy in place for student-athletes. Students must follow the policy to remain eligible to participate in athletics. Do your best in the classroom!
All players will need to provide their own cleats, cup and supporter. Cleats must be a molded cleat bottom, not a screw in or metal cleat. All other equipment is provided.
6) Summer Training:
All players need to get some type of physical activity in this summer. At least 30 minutes of aerobic activity per day such as running or biking along with some strength exercises such as push-ups, sit-ups, crunches, etc. is recommended.
