FH WEEKLY UPDATE: Sun 6/23 - Sat 6/29
6-24-19… Hello EHS & EIMS FH Players & Parents. This is an important weekly update. PLEASE READ all the way through. Thx, Coach Fischer
FREE EARLY MORNING FH WORKOUTS @EHS
Our early morning Tu/Th workouts begin this Thursday 6/27 on EHS stadium turf. All East Irondequoit girls entering grades 7-12 this Fall are welcome to attend. The program is FREE. The program is VOLUNTARY. AND it is a “drop-in” program (that means join us whenever you are in town and available). We have reserved the EHS stadium turf 7:30-9:30am AND the weight room 10am-12noon on Tuesdays 7/2, 7/9, 7/16, 7/23, 7/30, 8/6, 8/13 and on Thursdays 6/27, 7/11, 7/18, 7/25, 8/1, 8/8, 8/15. Bring your stick, goggles, mouthguard and shin guards. Please also bring a water bottle and a healthy snack to have during our 9:30 break. We have equipment you can borrow as well! The early morning workouts provide a fun opportunity to work on conditioning and stick skills that will help you be better prepared for the Fall FH season at EHS! Hope You can join us! (If you are in town and available it is STRONGLY recommended that you participate in these voluntary workouts if you are planning to play FH at EHS this Fall.)
Action Step 1: PLEASE INVITE YOUR FRIENDS TO JOIN US on Tues/Thurs mornings — especially friends who might have an interest in playing FH at EHS this Fall.
Action Step 2: LET ME KNOW ASAP if you need a ride to or from Tues/Thurs early morning workouts this summer.
Action Step 3: LET ME KNOW ASAP if your family can help with carpooling to or from early morning Tues/Thurs workouts at EHS this summer.
EHS FH POSSIBLE CAR WASH DATES
I have secured the following potential dates for FH car washes at EHS from 9am-12noon. We need at least 16 players and 4 or 5 parent volunteers (who will work as supervisors) to make a FH car wash happen at EHS. Players who have family members and/or friends join them to work the car wash will earn more money for their personal FH fundraising accounts.
Sunday June 30
Sunday July 7
Sunday July 14
Action step 1: LET ME KNOW ASAP if you can participate in any of the car wash dates (let me know all dates you can participate and if any family members/friends will join you on any of the dates)
Action step 2: LET ME KNOW ASAP if you you agree or disagree that — due to the very hot afternoons we have endured at FH car washes recent years — that it is a good idea to run our FH car washes this summer at an earlier start time (9am) and run 1 hour shorter (finished by 12noon). I am open to other ideas on this…

I will be mailing our EHS FH SUMMER & FALL FH packets to all players (and prospective new players) this week. The packet contains everything you need to know to plan for your FH team participation this Fall. The season officially starts on Monday August 19. We have only two weeks of preseason this year (last year we had three full weeks before school started). Preseason practices are critically important to our preparation for the high school season (16 games in approx 8 weeks.)
ALL PLAYERS NEED TO PLAN ON ATTENDING ALL PRESEASON PRACTICES 7:30am-12noon from 8/19 through to the beginning of the school year on 9/4. Once the school year begins, FH will practice 3:30-5:15 on every weekday that we do not have a scheduled game.
Action step: LET ME KNOW ASAP if you are planning to play EHS FH this Fall, but will be out of town (or otherwise unable to attend) all or a portion our 7:30a-12noon preseason practices 8/19-9/3 (please provide specific dates you will not be able to attend)
