2013 BYE WEEK SCHEDULE (update 9/23)

GALILEO-PURPLE-TEE.jpgGalileo’s var­sity squad fin­ished with a 3–1 non-league record head­ing into the bye week before league play. The off-season is done. The pre-season is done. It’s time to work even harder head­ing into league for the reg­u­lar sea­son. In the end, your reward is the post season.

Last sea­son, we started a new tra­di­tion dur­ing the bye week, we call it “Appre­ci­a­tion Week” in which we cel­e­brate each grade within our team and take part in our “Coaches’ Chal­lenge”. Each grade level will com­pete against the coach­ing staff in var­i­ous events.

Why is prac­tice so incon­sis­tent? We are jug­gling many things such as; fac­ulty meet­ings (Wed & Thurs), soc­cer home matches (Tues & Thurs), frosh soph home game (Fri), the field rental to out­side groups that starts at 6-ish and of course, the Bye Week chaos. Another obsta­cle com­ing soon is the end of  Day­light Savings.
