– Athletes should attend practice every day after school. However, if an athlete is going to be absent from practice, they should contact me and their event coach via e-mail, otherwise they have an unexcused absence.

Unexcused absences may result in suspension from a future scheduled competition.

Holiday Practice Schedule

If athletes are in Natick and don’t have previous commitments, they are expected to be at practice during the holiday.  Likely practices will be during the morning of 12/26, 12/27, 12/28, & 12/31 at the high school. More information about practice dates will be available as we get closer to the holiday. If your athlete has a family commitment or other acceptable reason for not being at practice, they should inform their event coach prior to the holiday.

IMPORTANT:  If you are being picked-up by a parent from a weekday Reggie Lewis meet, the parent must send an e-mail to me (matthewmiller@natickps.org) stating the intention to pick-up the athlete from the meet.  The e-mail should be sent no later than the morning of the dual meet or the Friday before a weekend meet.  Athletes may ride with another parent, but an email giving permission should be sent to the athletic director, tcollins@natickps.org.
