Please see the class calendar in the left column.


Practice will take place outdoors if the weather allows it and otherwise indoors in a gymnasium, especially during the colder part of the year. A gymnasium is rented for every single session, so that rain, heat or cold do not interfere with the practice schedule.

The time of the practice will be coordinated with My French Classes Saturday School (MFC) on Saturdays, so that MFC students have enough time to eat lunch before practice, but also don't have to wait for too long. The field and the gymnasium will be as close as possible to the My French Classes campus and may vary sometimes from session to session, depending on availability.

Please pack a water bottle and a lunch bag.

What students should bring to each sports practice:

  • water bottle
  • lunch box
  • snack
  • non-marking sports shoes
  • cleats for league games and if we can practice outdoors

Our team jersey color is GREEN. Please find more details here.
