Practice, Practice, Practice…

All U16 and U17 players,

I hope you have had a productive June with your HS teams and individually in preparation for a great July.  That said, Practice will resume on Tuesdays @6pm at Mott CC starting tomorrow.  I will let you know about alternate days, but definitely Tuesday.  Some of you may still be locked up with your HS teams this week, but for those whose summer leagues/practices/camps are done, you need to be there.
