Boys HS FALL POLO

2019 HIGH SCHOOL SEASON

FALL HIGH SCHOOL POLO SESSION

What is Fall Polo? - The Fall season is our high school season. Our team is made up of a varsity training group and a JV training group. We will tell athletes which group they are in on the first day, but it is flexible for about the first week, which is our "tryout" week. During this tryout week, our varsity training group will be cut down to 14 players. We do not make cuts at the JV level.

The most crucial elements we look at when evaluating our student athletes are:

  • Attitude
  • Attendance
  • Ability

This season we are facing some new challenges. With the move to the CIF Central Section, the boys and girls polo seasons are now at the same time. This has led us to get creative with our practice schedule. We are essentially alternating by week- odd weeks and even weeks. Game days will also be a lot different. League games will be held in the afternoons, with a JV game at 3:00pm, a Varsity game at 4:00pm, the second varsity game at 5:00pm, and the second JV game at 6:00pm, which means we should be wrapping up around 7:00pm.

Clearance: all athletes must be cleared to participate in athletics through familyid.com and must have signed the AGHS athletic code.

Dates: August 12 - November 10th

Game Schedule: see below

Parent Involvement – Parents we are going to need your help this year. We would like to make the change to a parent run concession stand. This would help in getting a profit off the front gate and the food will not get eaten by the kids. If possible we would like you to sign up for a the help work the stand. Please go the the events page of the www.eagleaquatics.com website and sign up to work the concession stand. We are asking for each family to work at least 2 shifts at the concession stand. ---- Link to concession stand shifts.

Fundraising We are asking for each athlete to donate $200. If you have any concerns with paying the money please don’t hesitate to email me. Please make checks out to AGHS.

Suits: team suits are in and are $45. Checks made out to AGHS.
