PRACTICE BEGINS ON SUNDAY
Practice is scheduled for Sunday, May 1st at 5 – 7 pm. The weather forecast for Sunday is more rain…WE ARE PRACTICING REGARDLESS OF THE WEATHER! We have 3 practices scheduled for Sunday and those practices will be at Noblesville High School…the practice field is located on the west side of the high school directly behind the Armory. We are only wearing helmets and shorts for the 1st practice. If you don’t have a helmet, you still need to be at practice as we are planning to put in the offense/defense, so these initial practices are critical. Coach Rich and I have purchased helmets from a local college, and we will have refurbished Shutt Helmets for sale probably $35/helmet depending on how much it will cost to have the helmets repainted. We also have used Power shoulder pads ($25) and cleats ($5) available. If you want to purchase equipment, please bring cash or check on Sunday – no credit!
Kokomo Players meet at Lowe's on US-31 at 4 pm on Sunday and we will car pool down to Noblesville HS.
We are changing our midweek practice day/time and location to THURSDAYS at 8 – 10 pm. The practice location will be at Tabernacle Presbyterian Church located at 418 E. 34th Street. We are sharing the field with the Indy Enforcers and thanks to Coach KC Carter for his assistance on setting this up for our team.
