Practice times set for high school fall sports

The first practices of the fall sports season are under two weeks away, and times and places have been set by the coaches.

All athletes must have a completed physical before they are allowed to participate in practices, scrimmages or games.

The first boys golf practice will take place 8 a.m. Aug. 5 at Yampa Valley Golf Course. The rest of the fall sports begin practice a week later, Aug. 12.

Football and cross country will start at 7 a.m. at Moffat County High School, with volleyball beginning at 9 a.m. at MCHS. Boys soccer will start practice at 6:15 a.m. at Woodbury Sports Complex.

MCHS having fall sports parents information day

Moffat County School District Athletic Director Rick Schmitz has scheduled a parent’s night for all high school fall sports.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. Aug. 12 and will give parents a chance to meet the coaches of the fall sports teams — boys golf, boys and girls cross country, football, volleyball, boys soccer and cheerleading — as well as discuss other information pertinent to the upcoming sports season.

A similar meeting is being planned for middle school fall sports, but does not have a set date yet.
