PHS Field Hockey Weekly 3/14/2021

Updates and training info

Hello everyone,

What a week! I hope you all enjoyed being in the stadium and watching your daughters play. It was nice to have fans once again!

Senior night was wonderful- thank you to our volunteers who pulled it together in such short notice. Our seniors and the MC seniors will never forget it! I received many texts and emails from MC thanking us and complimenting us on the event. Attached below is the senior night program for you all to see. We only printed 2 dozen to share with the seniors and their families since we did not have fans in the stadium that night.

Maxpreps has been updated see link on our Field hockey website and below. Our program Shutterfly account link is also below and on the website. New photos will be uploaded soon. Anyone who does not have access please go on the link and request access and we will make sure to add parents and players. Also, check out the videos & photos link on our website for new video from this season.

Monday, March 15th: Practice in stadium 7-8:30pm ****time change***

This week we will be combining the two JV teams and they will be playing the rest of the season together.

The season is moving so fast and now with all of the other sports starting, our field availability has drastically changed. This week will be the last week with practice and then we will move into playing games only. I have done my best to work with the Girl's LAX and Soccer game schedule to not have conflicting days/times. This will allow the multiple sport athletes a more flexible schedule. My hope is that if everyone still makes it to the Field Hockey games they can also participate in the other sports. Please see our upcoming schedule below. Know that I have asked to move 2 of the games to different dates but am still waiting to hear back. If they can change the dates. I may cancel the games depending on how many girls can make it.

Player info and program contribution 3/1/2021...

Hello everyone,

Please look at the weeks schedule down below with updates and game information. I am aware it may rain this week on our game days. I am holding out hope the rain is only in the morning and clears up before we play. Just and FYI, If we have to cancel I am going to wait up to 5pm before canceling unless the ref tells me before that. The other team is aware.

Below is a link to sly reply to sign up for volunteering at the games. Please know that each position is for one person and not a couple. However, the position in the booth to operate the scoreboard can accommodate two people- but only if they are from the same household. If you know you will be by yourself please leave this position open for those who would like to come together. Also bring binoculars...its way up there.

Below are the restaurant fundraiser flyers as well.

Spectators are now allowed in...3/9/21

Hi everyone,

Poway Unified has agreed to immediate family members per athlete. All spectators will park in the North Lot and enter the stadium near the grounds/track shed- denoted in purple on the provided map. All other gates must be locked during the contest.

There will be an admin at the gate. Checking names off the list, and screening for temperatures. We will still be using the QR code linked to the Covid questionnaire form for entrants to fill out. Please know you will use your own smartphone to access the form. A campus supervisor will be in attendance for any special needs and to enforce social distancing.

I appreciate your patience on the matter, but we needed to make sure we followed CDPH guidelines and PUSD’s reopening plans.

There will no longer be any volunteers allowed on the track other than the official scorekeeper and timekeeper. All fans will be in the bleachers adhering to social distancing. Only players and coaches will be allowed on the track.

Please see the map below with directions of pick up/drop off, parking, and fan areas.

best regards,

Coach Kim Draskovich

See message from PHS tech GURU...3/3/2021

Hi Kim,

As for watching games, this is what you can pass along to the families:

All of our home games, at all levels, are streamed live via the NFHS
Network. This service requires a paid subscription:
Subscription options are $11 monthly or $70 yearly. (Given the short
year, the annual subscription probably isn't worth it this year.)

Games can be watched on any web browser at
There are also applications available in the app stores for all
Apple and Android mobile devices, as well as the Apple TV, Roku,
and Amazon Fire TV streaming boxes.

A subscription gets *all* games on the service--not just one sport or
one school. This will also work for football, soccer, and lacrosse.
(Also sports in the gym, if we get to play those this year.) You can also
watch games we're not involved in, even games out of state. In a normal
year, this is also where you'd find CIF section and state playoff games.

I'm Jason Lindquist,
and I approve this message.

Game day update 3/3/2021...

Hello everyone,

For any players that did not receive socks last night we will have some for you at the field tonight. For new players to know- Please come in your green skirt and black warm up shirt and white socks. We will change into the white racerback jersey top just before game starts. White is our home jersey and green is our away.

As I mentioned previously we will wait til the last minute to cancel the game. We can play in the rain just not if there is thunder during the game. Then we would suspend. If there is thunder when I get there or during the game then we will cancel. See below for the message from the head FH ref.

Also see below for the info on streaming option form our PHS tech GURU.

See below for new map and game day parking instructions.

Remember if you chose to park at the top of the lot to watch games please stay in your car at all times. As soon as the JV game is over please pull out of the parking space and move to a different parking spot near the bus turnaround or JR lot. Do not wait for your daughters to come to you in that spot. We need to be cognizant of our Varsity families abilities to watch as well.

JV is expected to stay and watch the first half of the Varsity game before they can leave. Please be patient it is part of the learning and part of the bonding as a cohesive FH family (program). JVB can leave after the first half of the varsity game as well.

JVB please remember to bring your gear as you will be training during the games.

Every player please bring warm clothes or rain gear to wear when you are not in play maybe even an umbrella.

Message from head FH ref-

a. When thunder is heard or lightning is seen, the leading edge of the thunderstorm is close enough to strike your location with lightning. Suspend play for at least 30 minutes and vacate the outdoor activity to the previously designated safer location immediately.

b. 30-minute rule. Once play has been suspended, wait at least 30 minutes after the last thunder is heard or lightning is witnessed prior to resuming play.

c. Any subsequent thunder or lightning after the beginning of the 30-minute count will reset the clock and another 30-minute count should begin.

What players should bring equipment/gear:

  • Face mask
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Plenty of water-64 ounces- water fountains are not available
  • Work out attire- shirt and shorts or leggings
  • Cleats
  • Running shoes/athletic sneakers
  • Field hockey shin guards
  • Mouth guard
  • Goggles
  • Field Hockey stick
  • Optional- jacket or sweater will get cold at night.

Drop-off & Pick-up procedure

Please see the map and legend for drop-off & pick-up procedure. Come 15 minutes early. All players must be escorted down to the field by coaches from the front of the school. All players will have their temperatures taken. Anyone with a temperature of 99.9 F or above will not be allowed to participate. Please do not run up to greet us, this will unnecessarily raise your body temp.

  • Coaches will be in the front of the school to greet players, denoted in yellow.
  • For players who drive, park in the JR lot and walk on the sidewalk along Espola Rd. to meet coaches in front of the school, denoted in purple.
  • Once everyone has checked in, coaches will escort the players down to the stadium field, denoted in green.
  • After training concludes players will exit to the parking lot through the gate near the front office.
