Parents- this is good stuff. Give it a watch.
The 2019 season is set to begin! We’re just a few weeks out from the start of our pre-season sessions. There are a few upcoming dates that I want you to know about.
• Thursday, March 14, 3:30-4:30, Falmouth Rogue Info Session, FMS Small Gym
I’ll be there to throw the disc around and to answer any questions from players interested in playing on the travel team.
• Thursday, March 21st, 3:30-4:30, Falmouth Rogue Info Session for Girls, FMS Small Gym
Some of the high school girls ultimate players will be coming out to throw the disc around and talk about ultimate. Coaches will be there as well to answer any questions about the program.
• Thursday, March 21st, 6-7pm, Parents/Players Kickoff Meeting, Mason Motz Activity Center, Middle Road
We’ll be holding our annual parents and players meeting at the Mason Motz Activity Center, instead of the library as we always have, due to library renovations. Come out to meet the coaches and to hear all the details you need to know about the upcoming season. I will also have uniform samples of all sizes for anyone wanting to verify sizes. If you need to change sizes and have already registered- no worries- just let me know about the size change after the meeting.
• Tuesday, April 2nd, 3:30-5pm, First Pre-Season practice, FMS Gyms
We kick off the season on April 2nd! Our preseason schedule will have us practicing on Tuesdays and Fridays from 3:30-5pm in the FMS gyms. We’ll be scheduling a few random extra practices, to-be-announced soon, but until we get outside on the grass, Tuesdays and Fridays are our regular days. I’m going to be encouraging players to get out and jog on at least one other day throughout pre-season.
Once we get outside in May, we’ll be moving to our five-day-a-week schedule, with the travel kids playing two days a week with intramural and then three days as a travel team.
Mark your schedule for this Monday, March 13th, for the annual Falmouth Rogue Parents/Players meeting, which will be held at the Falmouth Town Library from 7-8pm. Falmouth Rogue is open to girls and boys in the 4th-8th grades living in Falmouth. The deadline to register for Falmouth Rogue, the travel team, is next Wednesday, March 15th.
We’re hosting a second Parents & Players Meeting on Tuesday, March 29th at 6pm at the Falmouth Town Library on Lunt Road. This meeting with be the same as our first gathering earlier this month and is designed for parents who were unable to attend that meeting. I will talk about the upcoming season, the differences between Travel and Intramural, and answer all questions.
Remember that the deadline to sign up for the Travel Team is April 1st, so this last meeting is a good chance to find out any last details before deciding which team to play on (there is no deadline for the Intramural Team).
The first Parents and Players meeting of the season will be at the Falmouth Memorial Library on Thursday, March 10th at 6pm at the Falmouth Memorial Library on Lunt Road. I will go over details for the season, including the new split to two teams (Travel and Intramural) and answer any questions. I will be posting all necessary details here on the website after the meeting, so if you can’t make it for whatever reason, don’t worry.
