Thanks in no part to the weather, our tryouts schedule has been anything but typical. Scheduling has been a nightmare for our coaches and the weather does not seem to want to cooperate… but never fear! Our coaches have a plan and I want to share that with you. We have secured field time at Lakepoint in Emerson, GA (a few minutes north on 75).
Thursday (January 16) – JV practice and evaluations ONLY
5:00p – Bus leaves Pope HS and will return to Pope HS after practice
It is ok if the JV players find their own ride to Lakepoint…BUT you must be there no later than 6;00p
6:00p - Arrive at the field to get warmed up
9:30p - Practice will end
Friday (January 17) – Varsity practice and evaluations ONLY
NO BUS PROVIDED… those trying out for Varsity must find a ride
5:30p – Arrive at the field to warm up (account for the traffic… don’t be late)
9:00p – Practice will end
The weather and these conditions are not ideal and certainly it is not what the coaching staff would prefer, but we need to do what we can to make the best of the circumstances.
The plan for each day will be to scrimmage both days with evaluations taking place throughout.
