Bandits NEWS Announcements & Updates

Bandits Parents,

Some announcements and updates on our Spring 2019 Season:

- We have a busy late January and February planned already.  Details of what we know so far are below.  Practices and games in March and beyond are not laid out, but we will communicate those dates, times & locations as soon as we know them.

 

- The big change this year is in response to many suggestions about forming teams earlier.  This will put us in a better position at the start of the season in late March.  To that end, all teams will be formed in the 2nd week of February, that is, by 11 Feb 2019.  This is a fairly large schedule change from past years and puts a tremendous emphasis on registering earlier than normal for many parents.   

 

- We have better and more times scheduled at Evergreen Sportsplex this year.  We are looking into indoor options also.  Unavoidably there are a few times scheduled beyond times that are ideal.  These times are generally scheduled for the 7th & 8th graders and do not go past a 9:30 p.m. end time. 

(Note: we are not officially affiliated with Evergreen - we rent their fields before we obtain fields from Loudoun County Parks and Rec. which happens around the 3rd week of March)

 

- New uniforms this year!  We are modernizing and going to new model of uniform handling.  From now on you will keep the uniform - no more turning it in!  To retire the old boys’ uniforms, we will be handing them out as practice pinnies this year and you will keep those as well. 

 

- Weather & cancellation guidance for Jan & Feb - this is what will guide us and we will communicate the decision prior to each session:

    If no rain and the temperature is projected to be:

    Below 32 deg F, all practices are cancelled.

    32 deg - 40 deg, only Boys 14 & 12U and G7/8 & G5/6, all others are cancelled.

    Above 40 deg - practice in on!

 

    If there is a potential for rain/snow and the temperature is projected to be:

    Below 32 deg F, all practices are cancelled.

    32 deg - 40 deg, all practices are cancelled.

    40 deg - 50 deg, potentially only Boys 14U & 12U (practice time decision)

    Above 50 deg - Boys are on, Girls will be a practice time decision

    

The main point of the cutoffs is to ensure that your player has a reasonably good time during the weather-challenged part of the season.  We want to use these sessions, but don't need to go to extremes to get them.

 

- The following sessions are a combination of evaluations and group practice sessions.  Please try to make all the sessions.  If you cannot make a session or two there is no reason to worry or notify anyone.  If you are going to miss more than two sessions, please email the boys or girls commissioners as appropriate (Boys: Reed Smith   & Scott North   Girls:  Allison Buckley )

 

Upcoming dates, times, and locations

Rainout Information System

If PRCS closes the fields then we will not hold practices. Please download the app at Rainoutline.com 

PRCS Rainoutline.com.

Parents and Coaches can download the app iPhone /Android which will be updated by 3 pm on weekdays and 7 am on weekends. As PRCS manages a total of 425 recreation use areas (fields, diamonds, gyms, etc), you will want to mark favorites.

A video tutorial on the app can be seen here: https://youtu.be/_1PAT-b6CHs

1. Upon downloading the app parents/coaches will want to search for: "Loudoun County" or "PRCS".

2. You can then scroll through all the fields/schools listed and by tapping the star on the right select only your favorites you would like to monitor‚  Remember there are 425 (fields, diamonds, gyms, etc) so you'll want to narrow it down to your favorites.

3. We strongly suggest you favorite the following Fields:

  • Hampshire Park Field 1
  • Hampshire Park Field 2
  • Belmont Ridge Middle School

PRCS aims to have updates by 3pm on weekdays and 7am on weekends.

If for some reason you would not like to use the app, but instead the website you will have to create an account here: https://rainoutline.com/login

1. Create a new user account (located on the right-hand side of the page)

2. You will then receive an email from Rainoutline.com to verify your email address and activate your account

3. Login into your account and in the SEARCH box type in "PRCS"

4. Select Loudoun County Parks and Recreation and SELECT your Favorites by clicking on the stars

People can receive email or text alerts, but the App is the best way to go.  The app gives the benefit of quickly checking the status whenever you need to know as opposed to alerts that are sent every time the status is updated (which could be more often than you'd like).
