EAST RUGBY PRACTICE CHANGES- IMPORTANT!
Under the original plan we were going to start practicing at City Park on Monday Feb. 24 from 3:45- 6:00 p.m.
That has changed. ALL THE DENVER PARKS ARE CLOSED THROUGH MARCH 31st. All the teams at East H.S. have had to adjust.
Lisa Porter, the Athletic Director, has been very helpful to us and all the teams.
From now until Saturday Fed. 22 our practice times and location on the East H.S. turf remain as before.
However, STARTING MONDAY FEB. 24 WE WILL PRACTICE FROM 7;15-9;15 P.M. AT THE EAST H.S. TURF. We will warm up from 7:15-7:30 on the grass area just southwest of the turf and be on the turf from 7:30-9:15 p.m. We will practice from 7:15- 9;15 at the East H.S. turf every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday (unless there is a game) until after spring break.
On Monday April 7th through the end of the season, our practices will move to City Park from 3;45 p.m. -6:00 p.m.
We realize this may very well be an inconvenience for many families and coaches. Lisa Porter and I looked into other options and there were none. It was either adjust to this later time or cancel the season. There are many teams all over the City who are without a practice location. East Rugby has needed to stay flexible for many years to survive. I appreciate your support of this change.
