~This is for the coaching staff’s
benefit as an aid for instruction
~Students should always have a ride
home from practice. Coming to practice and asking around for a ride home is not
acceptable. Parents must be on time to pick up their children. The coaching staff is not paid for their time

are no other groups in the facility at the end of fencing practice we cannot leave the fencers on their own outside. Therefore it is imperative that those picking up the fencers be on time.
