    WHERE TO REPORT:
    • FOOTBALL PLAYERS SHOULD REPORT TO THE THEIR WARM UP LOCATION.  Teams line up from north to south in age order.  Tykes being on the far north side of the west field and 11u on the far south side of the west field.    

    • CHEERLEADERS SHOULD REPORT TO THE FIELD NORTH OF THE FOOTBALL FIELDS.

    SIGNING OUT:  Please remember to sign out with your name, child's name and the phone number where you can be reached if you are not staying for practice.  If a child is sick or injured, we need to be able to reach you quickly.
     
    PICKING UP YOUR CHILD FROM PRACTICE:  For the safety of the kids, players and cheerleaders must be picked up on the field where they practice.  Coaches will not allow players to leave the practice field to find you.  Below is a diagram of your child's practice location on the Tiger Country fields.  
     
     
     
    PARKING: Please park in the designated spaces along Tiger Drive or in the high school parking lot. Any cars parked on along the curbing or illegally parked in fire lanes will be towed. See the diagram above under "Picking Up Your Child From Practice" for parking locations.  

    WHAT TO WEAR: Football Players should wear their helmets with mouthpiece, full pads (pants and shoulder pads), and practice jersey. Cheerleaders should wear sneakers, practice tshirts and shorts.  

    WATER: We are asking players to use our water horses until the teams have split into their designated area.  Too much time is lost looking for water bottles or getting them from parents. Tykes and Cheerleaders may bring their own water.

    HEAT: Please instruct your player/cheerleader to let a coach know if he does not feel well or is getting light headed. Coaches will ask players how they feel but sometimes players do not feel comfortable telling coaches in front of other players. Tell them it is not a sign of weakness to be overheated. SAFETY is our first priority!!! We will also have a medical tent set up at each practice to address any injuries and medical related issues.

    PRE-PRACTICE RECOMMENDATIONS: Players should stay away from caffeine drinks such as soda and tea before and after practice in order to stay hydrated. Water and Gatorade are recommended during practice days. Also, it is highly recommended that players eat light (fruits are best) before practice... cereal and milk is not a good combination before practice.
