What days of the week will we practice and play?

The game, or event is cancelled. If it's a game the coaches will be incontact with the parents to set up a make up game.

What equipment do I need to provide and where can I get it?

Starting with safety, if you wear braces, consult your orthodontist about protective mouthgear.  If you wear eyeglasses, consult your optometrist to determine if they are appropriate to wear during sports. 

Any medications, such as asthma inhalers, should be discussed with the coach as to how and when to be used.

Wear comfortable, supportive sneakers with laces.

Wait for the coach to advise you about bringing water. Some gyms do not permit water bottles, but provide nearby drinking fountains.
