Preseason weightlifting usually begins in January. Weightlifting happens before school in the Ingraham Weight Room.

Is there transportation provided by the school for games played away from school?
If Varsity is scheduled for a home game, JV will play an away game. Players will travel for away games by school bus to or pre-planned carpool. Parents will need to coordinate with the coach(es) in advance of an away game if their son will not be riding with the team on the bus.
Will the athletes miss any class time due to away games? If so, how is that situation coordinated between teachers and the athletic department?
Away game departure times and home game prep, often result in players leaving school early. With the later school start, school buses are shared among the school district for teams and students. Coaches submit team early dismissal lists through Ms. Huffer and the athletics office, but players MUST be responsible to get their work completed and be aware of what’s due.
How will athletes and parents receive communication about last minute changes regarding games schedules, transportation, rainouts, etc?
