LSE Athletic Director Curtis Walk said practice for the LSE Pirates football team, LSE boys and girls cross-country team and the LSE Lady Pirates volleyball team will start on Monday, Aug. 17 at the school.

For football, Walk said the Pirates will practice all week from 3:15-5:15 p.m. at the David Barton Football field.

Walk said players need to be dropped off in the street beside the back alley of LSE to access the locker room. He said do not drive in the back alley. All players are to walk to the field and walk back up from the field to the locker room. Players will not be allowed to ride back and forth to and from the field. Please make sure a current physical is on file if you are a new eighth grade player or a seventh grade athlete. Athletes may not participate in practice until a physical is on file.

If you have any questions, please e-mail Curtis Walk@bpsk12.net.

Walk said all athletes will be required to have a mask due to MSHSAA guidelines. He said LSE will provide all athletes with a mask to use when not participating in physical activity.

All coaches will hand out equipment if needed, go over team rules, and go over COVID-19 procedures during the first practice. All athletes must bring their own water bottle.
