Practice Info

Outdoor practice information

We practice in all weather, so please be prepared by wearing season-appropriate athletic clothing that is durable; layering works best when the weather is chilly. If the weather is extremely bad, you will be notified by 4pm EST via our Googlegroup if we are forced to cancel practice.

Please do not wear any clothing that is special to you. We get dirty, and occasionally clothing gets torn during drills.

You will also need to bring a mouth guard as we often have "full contact" and wear cleats.

DO NOT WEAR ANY JEWELRY (this includes body piercings as well)

Practice Information: 6:30pm in Red Hook, Brooklyn (please arrive 15 minutes early) we are racing against sundown!
