Players will meet in the cafeteria directly after-school where they will have a light snack. Training and play will take place in classrooms onsite at PS 111. Pickup will occur at 5 PM in the lobby.
Lateral movements will occur, as we experiment with class grouping and activities to identify the optimal training opportunities for our players. Players will be promoted throughout the season as coaches feel fit.
A high emphasis on participation, engagement and self-study will be placed on our team groups.
