After School Practices


Mondat, Tuesday and Thursday – 3:50pm – 6:00pm

Please wear: Tennis Shoes, Hat, Sunglasses, athletic clothes, and have a Camelback. 

We will have plenty of cold water available to fill and refill camelbacks (they are mandatory to have at outside rehearsals). Do not share or drink from someone else's camelback.

Once rehearsals are over, we ask that you please pick up your students within 30 mins of rehearsals ending. (We want to go home too.)



We require students to have a camelback for all outside rehearsals.  This is required not only for their safety of hydration when outside, but also for sanitary reasons of students not sharing bottles or jugs.  We will provide ice water to fill their camelbacks before every rehearsal.
