**Practices are voluntary and will not have an impact on an athlete’s placement on the team.  However, athletes who come into the season conditioned are naturally more likely to perform better during the season.

**If weather or other circumstances require practice to be canceled or changed, notifications will be sent through Schoology.  All parents and students are encouraged to join the Schoology group.  To join, email Coach Barrett at mbarrett@blracademy.org and he will email you a code and instructions to join the group. 

**All practices will start and finish in front of the Prep school, and will last 1 hour.

**Practice will be geared toward middle school and high school student athletes, but parents, siblings and others are welcome to join our practices.   


Middle School and High School Students: Earn your super cool Summer Practice T-Shirt. If you come to 6 out of the 8 practices, you will earn the 2019 Summer Practice T-Shirt.  All of your friends will want one, but only those dedicated enough to show up will get one.  Shirts will be given out after completing the first week of regular practice.
