Key dates announced for Mineola football, volleyball


With football and volleyball seasons right around the corner there are a few important dates that need to be marked on the calendar.

Pickup for football equipment starts next week. On Tuesday, Aug. 1 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. juniors and seniors will need to pick up their equipment, on Wednesday, Aug. 2 from 9 to 12 freshman and sophomores will pick up their equipment and on Thursday, Aug. 3 from 9 to 12 there will be a makeup day for everyone who has not already picked up their equipment.

If an athlete cannot make any of those dates it is required that the athlete arrive at 5:30 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 7 so you are not late for practice due to not having equipment.

On Wednesday, Aug. 2 at 6 a.m. football will begin their two-a-day practices. The first break will be around 9:45 a.m. and athletes will not be allowed to leave to get food.

On Friday, Aug. 11 from 9 p.m. to midnight will be the ‘midnight madness’ practice.

On Tuesday, Aug. 1 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. volleyball will have their first day of practice; it is advised players take a lunch because athletes will not be allowed to leave to get food.

All incoming seventh, ninth and 11th grade students will need to provide a proof of a physical to practice. If you are an who that had to see a doctor about an injury last year it is required you provide a physical, it is also required you provide one if one isn’t already on file.
