A reminder that the final North Texas Camp will be held this Sunday 4/29, at Barney Wood Athletic Complex in Farmers Branch, Texas. 14050 Heartside Pl Farmers Branch, TX 75234.
This camp will be the last opportunity to be considered for the North Texas High Performance Team. Please encourage all teammates to attend. I know this is a busy time of year for students. I trust that you will be responsible and make arrangements accordingly to attend. I also know that there are no proms or exams on Sunday morning.
On May 12th the Academy School Championships will be played at Burr Field in Austin Texas.
5627 Loyola Lane, Austin TX 78724.
Games will begin at 9am and will conclude by 1pm. After a short break the High Performance team will be announced. A team meeting and short practice will follow. I expect everyone at the field, dressed to play by 8am. Tardiness will reflect poorly on your evaluation. Uniform will be blue shorts and socks, if you have them, otherwise wear your team kit. Jerseys will be provided for the day.
Some have mentioned going to Austin Friday evening and getting a hotel room. If so inclined, you shall make your own arrangements.
All participants in the Academy School DO NOT have to (but are encouraged to) try out for the HPP. In other words, they can play on the team (U17 or U19) in Austin and not want to be considered for the HPP.
Anyone that does want to be considered may have some financial responsibility for the trip to Colorado. It is estimated that the trip can cost $450.00 per player. However, we will have fundraising opportunities to lower, if not eliminate, this amount. Still, players and parents need to be informed of the potential expense for the trip.
There will be Texas High Performance training sessions across Texas that all selected participants will be required to attend.
May 20th in Houston
June 3rd in Dallas
June 10th in Austin
At this last NTX HP camp, we will be taking photos of players for selectors and coaches to more easily recognize players, not just relying on leg numbers. If you have already communicated injury/attendance issues to Coach Kelly, please email an undistorted face photo so that we attach it to your file.
