Player Welcome Letter

Summer Training
Dear PHS Players and Players,
We are excited to see everyone next week at Valley Rd. Field. It has been an unprecedented time for all of us ... we all miss the sense of community which is gained through playing soccer at PHS.  I want to ensure all players and parents that we have implemented a fair, equitable plan to execute these tryouts, particularly under the current circumstances.
In addition to my earlier email please note important details for next weeks tryout (9/14 - 9/18)
All players will need to have the following items each day:
- inflated soccer ball with name or initials marked on it
- soccer cleats, socks and shin guards
- mask, water bottle, hand sanitizer 
- 1 grey tee shirt and 1 blue (royal, navy or dark color) tee shirt.  There should be no youth soccer club affiliation on the shirt
Tryout Dates: 9/14 - 9/18 (Final varsity team decisions will be announced after 9/18 via player's PPS email account)
Tryout Time: 3:35 - 6:35
Arrival Time: Players may be dropped as early as 3:10 but must remain away from the Valley Rd. Field gate until temperatures can be read after entering the gate
Pick Up Time: 6:35
- No players may carpool
