  • Mondays - 4:45-6:15 PM (changed from Fridays 5:00-6:30 PM as of 10/27/21)
  • Wednesdays - 2:30-4:00 PM

When weather or court conditions are not conducive to practicing outdoors, practices will be moved indoors to the Cimarron Hills fitness center rather than cancelling practices and causing a delay in the season by adding make-up practices. Masks are required when practicing indoors.
