We are 1 week away from the start of our winter workout program. On Monday morning, January 13th, at 5:15am, our Freshmen and Sophomore players will have their first practice. On Tuesday, January 14, our Junior and Senior players will practice. In order to participate, they will need to pay their $275 participation fee. If you are writing a check, please make it out to Chaparral Baseball. The player can deliver it to me any time this week at school in 507L, or bring it prior to the first day of practice. IF you are paying via your myschoolbucks account, you will need to have paid by this Friday, January 10 at 3:00 so as I can pull an updated list of who has paid. Payment can still be made using myschoolbucks on a later date. However, the player will miss the first day of workouts.
Additionally, the player needs to deliver his signed participation waiver to me. He can do this any time this week in 507L or he can bring it with him the morning of his first practice.
Players should be in shorts and athletic shoes. They will be given a practice shirt to wear. Chap hats are required. There will be hats available to purchase on the morning of our first practice. Hats are $10. Players should bring all other baseball equipment.
Enter school through the east athletic entrance. Players need to arrive no later than 5:05 to assist in setting up. Practice starts at 5:15. Doors will be locked at that point.
Players need to eat breakfast before. Nothing too heavy or greasy but enough to give their bodies something to feed off of. Every year there are players who feel as though they are going to pass out due to nothing in their stomachs, as well as players who get sick from having too much to eat. In addition, a snack after practice prior to heading to class in encouraged.
Lastly, sleep and taking care of their bodies is extremely important. Players should be prioritizing their homework time after school and getting to bed earlier than usual.
Tryouts on March 2nd and 3rd will be here before we know it! Set your goals on getting better every day!
