One you enter the polo grounds turn left over the bridge (the speed bumps are killer!) and turn left again. Park under the bridge if you can. We will be practicing just on the other side of the bridge.

We will begin at 9am sharp. Please wear your grey HP issued shirt. From 9am-10am we will train hard on fitness. Please show up fit! At 10am we will go watch some rugby for a rest and an 11:00am lunch.

At noon we will begin training again (location either the same or another pitch nearby, we will let you know) and go until 3pm.

Once we are done you are welcome to go home or go watch some more rugby It is required that you all show up for training.

Also, if you can't scan your commitment letter to Coach Rock, copy it and bring one to the practice session. You need to keep a copy.

Coach Rock appreciates all those choosing to comply and send him the required times. Also, thanks for the commitment letters to date. Please make sure you are reading the commitment letters daily to reinforce your vow.
