Class Activities -- Contingency Planning for Weather Issues ...


Here's a couple of updates ... Sorry I haven't gotten the review materials ready yet ...


I'll try to have them ready sometime today ... I didn't have a game this week until everyone started adjusting their schedule for rain ... There's a lot of material to become familiar with ... Do the best you can ... We will use the same format we've been using ... So, the more familiar you are with the review material, the better your learning will be for the class material ...



This Sunday, 02/08 ... We will be at Jesuit from 9am - 4pm ... With the current forecast, it looks like we'll probably be inside all day ... But, we'll play that by ear in case Sunday's weather isn't quite as bad as expected ... We will meet in AH-104 because there is an All Sport meeting in AH-105 in the afternoon ...



Next Sunday, 02/15 ... We will be at Crestmont Elementary School ... There are two (2) little fields there & a blacktop area sufficient for our instruction needs ... It is also a combined school-park facility so restrooms are also available ... If weather prevents the Maidu Clinic, then we will use Jesuit as our backup facility & meet there ...


Crestmont Elementary School ... 1501 Sheridan Avenue, Roseville, CA 95661



If the weather IS manageable ... We will only review the following materials ...
