Your players may have already told you. We have to move practice, beginning this week, to the grass field at Ponderosa High School.  Our old field, Christa McAuliffe, is undergoing much needed renovation.

Ponderosa High School is located at 3661 Ponderosa Rd, Shingle Springs, CA , Please use the first driveway and drive around the back of the stadium to the field like in the attached photo.  In order to accommodate the baseball and softball teams, we have to move the practice starting time to 7:00 PM.
