Practice Information: Coaches - as CSA has done with the Baseball/Softball practices. We are attempting to schedule practices first by setting times for everyone and then by allowing coaches to request open slots for additional practice times. To request an open time please use the "Request Gym" button on the left under Practice Schedule. The current practice schedule has been posted.
Please note that should you not be able to use your spot please send an e-mail to the scheduler using the "Reserve Gym" page under Practice Schedule on the left. Please send the notice as far in advance as possible and at least a day in advance so that others can use the open slot. Failure to use a requested slot may result in future practice requests not being granted.
CSA uses the Comeaux Rec Center and School Gyms (Milton and Comeaux High School) with the blessing and permission of the City and School Administrations. It is the responsibility of everyone (Player, Coach, Parents) to keep the gyms as clean or cleaner than when we arrive. The school gyms are not to be left unattended. If there is no one following you, we will need to lock up. Please contact your coordinator should a team scheduled to practice after you fail to appear.
Please be mindful to clean up any mess or trash as we would hate to lose the use of these gyms.
CSA schedules practices using the following guidelines:
1) First come first serve basis during the week
2) One practice per week per team (during the week before a team gets a second practice)
3) Schedule only two weeks in advance
4) If your team practices one week (during the week) you will NOT automatically get a practice the following week as CSA trys to let every team get a practice every other week (although this cannot always be done).
5) If a practice spot is open within 72 hours then any team that requests will get the spot regardless if they have another practice scheduled that week.
Please note that we do not have unlimited practice availability and attempt to fulfill the requested practices.
