Q: What is the procedure for after practice showering?
8th graders do not shower as they have afternoon practice. 7th grade boys will shower after practice, during the period. They are asked to wear swim trunks and shower shoes. They can clip their trunks to the laundry clip along with their other athletic clothes to ensure they are being washed everyday. Coaches will provide a clean towel everyday. Soap/Shampoo will not be provided.

Yes, coaches will wash athletic laundry on a daily basis. We ask that the athletes do not take their clothes home.
