This week and beyond
We have our normal Tuesday and Thursday practices (both 5:15-6:30) this week, along with just one game this weekend -- which is Sunday now at Westbrook MIDDLE School, 9 a.m. start and 8:30 arrival time.
We have 4 players (Nolan, Andrew, Jack and Matt) involved in the Memorial Band performance Tuesday night and expect that all those players likely will miss that practice as a result. Practice will still go on for all others.
As for next week, we will run one regular practice on Tuesday (12/20) and then an OPTIONAL practice on Thursday (12/22), filled with games and challenges for all those who can make it.
We do also have our regular practice days/times at SPCC the week of Christmas break itself (12/27 and 12/29) and would like all available players to attend those if possible. Obviously, if holiday or family plans conflict just let us know.
We had hoped to pull together a small team holiday gathering similar to last year, but various circumstances have not cooperated -- so we will instead likely hold a season-end team party of some sort in Feb. or March.
At this point, after this weekend, we don't have another game scheduled until Jan. 7 and will have only 3 regular-season Cape League games left at that point. We will, however, look into returning to XL Sports at least once or twice in January as well. Playoffs begin in February.
Thank you all!
