Parents may not wait in their cars for the kids to come to them after practice. All parents must physically be at practice pick-up to gather their athlete and walk him/her/them to the car. The athletes are to make sure they let the coaches know their parents are there, and then they will be allowed to leave.
Please remember that you can be ticketed for parking in the no parking areas.
PARENTS: Please make sure you have the SportsEngine app and you are receiving notifications. This is the main way coaches will be in contact with you. The coaches only have access to your email and phone # if you have updated your SportsEngine profile, but they don't have a way to send out mass texts.
Also, please have a conversation with your athlete(s). The coaches will be having the same conversation with the teams. There is always be someone at the fields until all football athletes have been picked up, so please make sure your athlete understands that they are not allowed to leave alone.
Our meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Below are the remaining 2023 Board of Director meeting dates:

Effective Nov. 2019, the Colts moved to a new web service provider, which also means we have rolled out a new app to be used by our coaches, TCs and athletes for all communications, team planning, calendaring, etc. This change will enable our communication to improve tenfold over years past. This app is downloadable for both iPhone and Android. Please go to the Apple Store or Google Play and search "SportsEngine" (see logo picture to the right). Please make sure you login using the same email as the one that was used to create your athlete's registration. If you don’t see your athlete's team or name once you are logged into the app, send an email to email@example.com.
