Practice FAQ's

Practice Field Info 

What does the term FREE WEEK mean?

Free week is a list of specific dates (before the season starts) when the city allows your team to practice on a game field at NO COST.  When you sign up for a Free Week slot, it is a ONE-time practice.  There for you’ll need to get multiple slots (see instructions on specific link). 

Both cities will rent you the fields for practices & scrimmages throughout the season for an additional cost, paid to the city.  See page 2 for prices.

What does the term REGULAR PRACTICE mean?

The term regular practice means a practice location assigned to you though out the season at no cost. This is a re-occurring practice.  When you sign up for one slot on the links (example: FB Park, Wednesdays @ 6pm), that will be your practice slot EVERY Wednesday at 6pm. 

Both practice options will be on a separate Sign-Up Genius link.  

How do I get a practice slot?

The very next morning after the coach’s meetings (8/28/2019) I will email ALL head coaches and team administrators a list of Sign Up Genius links broken down by city and practice type (regular or free week), a total of 3 links.   We send the email the next day to give everyone a fair chance to get the slots they want.  Once the email is sent out, please have a few top selections and back up selections.  Poll your parents and know what days they prefer for practice days BEFORE the links go out.  Once they are live selections will go fast.

The first time the links go out (8/29/2019) you will be limited on how many practice slots you can have for regular practice (reoccurring slots) and free week (one-time slots).  This is to enable that all coaches have a chance of getting a slot.  Once everyone has had an opportunity to select at least one slot, I will resend the links out to you again (9/1/2019) and you can take as many slots you like at that point.  All links will disable at 8pm on Monday 9/2/2019.  These are hard deadlines. As I need to provide the practice schedule to both cities to coordinate lights, field prepping etc.

 So, knowing what you want in advance is key.   It’s first come first serve and they go FAST! fast.

 The 3 links in the email will be:

Ø  FREE WEEK in Farmers Branch

Ø  FREE WEEK in Carrollton

Ø  REGULAR practices in Farmers Branch

Ø  REGULAR practices in Carrollton (Sunday ONLY)  ßThis is NO longer an option. As of Spring 2019.
