Hello Parents and Players.
Wow. So many logistics and so little time.
Our new players are already showing improvement and our experienced players are showing great focus and leadership.
Practice tomorrow night at 5:30. Both Lightning and Junior Jerseys will be distributed. I will try and be at the field by 5:15 to get that process started.
Lightning: Saturday at 11:15 at Home. And, Sunday at 9:00 am in Brookfield. The schedule has a link to directions.
Juniors: Saturday at 12:30 at Home. And, Sunday at 9:00 am in Brookfield. The schedule has a link to directions.
Please show up to the respective fields at least 20 minutes before the game. The coaches and I will try and arrive 30 minutes before. Throughout the season we will need to be sensitive and aware of away game protocols.
In Brookfield, all players, coaches and spectators must wear a mask at all times at the facility. This is why our players have been wearing masks at practice.
At home games, players and parents must wear masks to and from the field from the parking lot. All players should come to the field with their equipment on or put their equipment on in the parking lot.
Parents, it is my preference that you wear your masks anytime you are on our home field. But, the choice is yours once you get to the field and are socially distanced from any non family member.
Finally, please take your players temperature the morning of the game. If they have a fever or have any Covid symptoms please do not come to the game. I have to certify to these items prior to every game. Please take this serious and be ready to confirm when you arrive at the games.
As for our preparation for these initial games, well, it is a work in process. The players have done a great job in our limited practice opportunities and my hope is that they will have fun and improve everytime they come to the field.
Please encourage your players to run fast!!! When in doubt ... RUN!!!!
