Modified Return to Practice Start, 9/2020
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hounds' standard Tuesday evening practices are on hold.
However, based on member feedback and the best practices for our current environment, we have developed a modified version of practice meetups that will start the week of September 14th.
These meet ups will not be our standard full group practice on Tuesday evenings at the Schenley oval. Instead there will be five practice events throughout each week, at different locations, with limited attendance numbers. This will allow us to utilize less trafficked areas and ensure group sizes of 10 people or less.
You must RSVP with one of the links below before attending any meetup event and you may only attend one meetup each week.
If you have any trouble RSVPing using the provided link please reach out to the meetup sponsor via email for assistance.
Tuesday morning 5:50am, Schenley Park (meet at oval bathrooms)
