  • Water bottle - not to be shared.

  • There will be no locker room access for students, so please come dressed in practice attire ready to play (t-shirt, spandex, knee pads, etc.). Also, make sure to bring any medicine/inhalers that you may need.

Note:

All players must enter the building through the front door (Tates Creek Road). Players must have their temperature checked before exiting their vehicle, and/or upon arrival to the building. Any player found with a 99.5 temperature or higher will not be allowed to participate for that day and must return home.

Players must exit the building through the side door (Providence Lane). Rides may wait to pick up their player in the staff parking lot. 

All players must wear a mask when entering the building, as well as when workouts have concluded and they are preparing to go home. Masks may be removed during the actual tryouts/conditioning/practicing. 

Please note that in the interest of safety and per FCPS recommendations, carpooling for players who do not live in the same household is discouraged. There will be no spectators allowed to watch workouts in the gym. Family members must remain inside their vehicles if they choose to stay.
