What should I wear? You should wear comfortable shorts/pants and tennis shoes. You will receive your jersey and hat at your first game. *Spikes/Cleats are not allowed on the MLSH field*
Where do I go when I arrive at my first game? When you arrive at the field, head to the Player Check-In table that will be located in front of the field. You'll receive your jersey and hat, and one of the MLSH volunteers will show you to your dugout where you can meet your coach and teammates! *After your first game, you can just go right to your dugout for the remainder of the games! No need to check in.*
How will I know if my game gets delayed or canceled? The BEST way to stay informed about delays and cancellations is to join our one-way text thread through Remind. To join, text @k4dhg8 to 81010. *The MLSH does not send emails about game delays/cancellations. We will post on FB and send a text through Remind only.
What if I have to miss a game? No worries! When you know you're going to miss a game, let your coach know so they know not to put you in the lineup that week.
How do I stay informed throughout the season? We will send out weekly emails on Tuesdays during the season to let you know what's coming up for the next week! Be sure to save email@example.com to your contacts!
