When are practices?
Practices will be Monday through Friday right after school from 3:40 p.m. to 5:05 or 5:10 p.m.  We will not have practice or games on non-school days. Please check your email daily during your child's season for any schedule changes from the athletic director or coach, last minute changes may not be found on the website. On days of games/events, our teams will either be home or away. Scroll down for schedules.

Practice Sites and Activity Bus Information:
Please note that your student may participate in any activity regardless of their school. For instance, if a student attends Friendly Hills but wants to participate in a sport that practices at Heritage, they will simply take the activity/shuttle bus after school to Heritage for practice and vice versa. Practices will start right after school from 3:40 p.m. to 5:05 or 5:10 p.m. All students can either be picked up from the practice site, or they have an option for an activity bus that will bring them close to their home after practice.
