2015 EDS Spring Athletic Season Information

Beth C 1

The spring athletic season is here! This post will provide you with the basic information you need to prepare for the season, including practice days and locations, names of the coaching staff, and items/equipment needed. Team schedules will be handed out at the parent meeting. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jaye at 706-261-0111 or jcohen@edsaugusta.com

Teams for this spring are:

  • Varsity Boys & Girls Track & Field
  • Varsity Baseball
  • Varsity Boys Soccer
  • Varsity Girls Soccer

The spring Parent/Coach/Player meeting will be Monday, February 2nd at 6pm. The first day of practice is Wednesday, February 4. Teams will hold practice/tryouts February 4, 5, 9, 10*, and 11*. Those teams that do not have tryouts, players should expect to practice all five days.

** If teams with tryouts need additional days, Feb 10 and 11 will be used for this purpose. **

The EDS bus will transport all team athletes to the practice or game site; however, you will need to pick up your child after each event. If you need assistance in setting up a carpool, I would be happy to help.
