- Remember, players are required to remain at camp from this point until Saturday 8/23 at noon. All of their gear must be picked up on Saturday at noon. There are events in the wrestling room the following week, so we must be completely cleared out on Saturday.
What Players Should Bring for Sleepover Camp
Bed – the most comfortable possible, blow-up type would be best, cots with a sleeping pad work, try not to bring a regular mattress. Let me know if this is a problem, we have a few extras available.
Toiletries – they will shower. Sen and Jun in one locker room, Soph in another.
Towel – these can be put in the wash daily
Clothing – gear for practice (cleats, sneaks, shorts, tees, as well as clothes for hanging out during free time and at night)
Food – plenty will be provided at breakfast, lunch, and dinners. Players should not bring any extra food with them.
Electronics – If they want to bring an ipod, kindle, it is at their own risk. We will do our best to keep the area secure, but there will be many people around the campus at that time of the year. They should lock these in their locker when they are not using them.
Flashlight – not required.
Money – a few dollars for the snack or soda machines, other than that, not required.
Water bottle – something that can be refilled so that they remain hydrated after practices
What Players Should NOT Bring
CELL PHONES - There is a NO CELL PHONE policy at camp. This is a time for players to come together as a team. The team will run for anyone breaking this TEAM Rule. If parents need to contact a player, they can do so through Coach Murphy
Expensive electronics – There will not be time - nor a need.
Jewelry – No earrings, watches, necklaces, any of that are permitted.
Junk Food – They will be fed plenty. There is no need to fill up on junk food, when they should be hydrating.
Cars – All players should be dropped off, whether of driving age or not. Parking is a major issue, plus there is nowhere to go.
**Laundry will be done during the Camp, so the boys will have clean practice gear each day. They need to bring enough downtime clothes, as we will not be washing personal items other than what is needed for football.
