Fall '22 Preseason FAQ's
Welcome to the Fall, 2022 Season of CYL!
Next week (8/29) will be our first week of practice. Here's everything you need to know:
LOCATION:
River City Sportsplex (13030 Genito Rd, Midlothian, VA 23112)
FIELDS:
10 (girls), 11 + 12 (boys) - These fields are in the way back past the large parking lot on the left. Keep going ... until you can't go anymore!
DATES & TIMES:
K/1/2: Monday, August 29th, 6-7:30p
3/4: Tuesday, August 30th, 6-7:30p
5/6: Wednesday, August 31st, 6-7:30p
7/8: Thursday, September 1st, 6-7:30p
HS Girls: Thursday, September 1st, 7:30-9p
ARRIVAL TIME:
If you are a new player, please arrive 30-mins in advance (particularly boys) so that we can be sure your equipment is fitted properly.
CHECK-IN:
I will be located at the front intersection between fields 10 & 11. Please check-in with me before heading to the fields. If you have not yet paid, you will need to bring a check and pay on-site.
WEATHER:
We make the call for weekday practices @ 4pm regarding weather. We make the call @ 7am regarding Saturday games. We typically play in all weather except lightning/thunder. Facebook is our primary notification system, email is second.
COACHES, TEAMS, EVALS:
Players will not be assigned a team or coach until after the first week of practices in which evaluations occur. We attempt to create parity among our teams and divide up as evenly as possible by skillset.
UNIFORMS & EQUIPMENT:
Uniforms will not arrive until a few days prior to the first games on 9/10. However, all players must have (and use) all equipment starting from day one - don't forget your mouthguards! All players will also receive a free shooter shirt early in the season.
WATER BOTTLES:
Boys may want to consider finding a water bottle with a long straw that they can utilize while still wearing their helmets. Taking helmets off and on can take up valuable practice time, especially for the younger guys.
GAME SCHEDULES:
Game schedules will be posted before the end of the first week of practice.
FIELD SURFACES:
-Girls practice on turf and (mostly) play on grass
-Boys practice on turn and (mostly) play on turf
