Bayern Pre-Season Practice - Spring 2019


I hope everyone is having a Happy New Year!

Just wanted to check in with you regarding the following:

1) Our spring season is scheduled to start the weekend of March 23rd/March 24th.

2) Therefore, in order to ensure that we are prepared, pre-season practice will be starting in February.

3) These are the tentative dates (depending on the weather). Al days are Saturday or Sunday:

A) February 17th or February 18th.

B) February 24th or February 25th.

C) March 2nd of March 3rd

D) March 9th or March 10th

E) March 16th or March 17th

4) Practices will run for 1 hour to 1:15 minutes

5) Location is TBD. At this time Oakwood Park is closed, so the only field open is Lieder. If things change, we may only be at Lieder Field.

6) Time is also TBD.

7) You will receive an email the week before our scheduled practice with that specific information.

8) While these practices are oprtional, it would be beneficial to get a head start on the season and make as many as possible.

Please contact me with any questions/comments.

Fields Update - Oct 27 & 28

Dear NPSC Families,

I wanted to write a quick note for this weekend.

The on again, off again paving of the Oakwood parking lot is on again. Despite our requests to pave during the week, the boro has decided to start paving today closing the parking lot over the weekend and on Monday. We have been told that all activities on Oakwood lower from Friday afternoon 10/26 until Tuesday afternoon 10/30 will be limited to DROP OFF ONLY PRACTICE , No games. Given the logistics involved, we have had to cancel the open skills session tonight.

Additionally, with the Nor'easter hitting this weekend, all practices are cancelled on Saturday including those on Oakwood in the afternoon. The Boro has also closed all grass fields until Monday. We will therefore have to cancel all small sided and developmental HOME games this weekend.

As the boro has permitted limited practices, with drop off only, we have created a signup genius for practices on Sunday. Your coaches will receive a link.

Thank you and talk soon.

NPSC Open Skills - Canceled
