Schedule: You can always see a schedule at http://www.athletics2000.com/bartlett/ however remember it is always subject to change and we will keep you up on the changes via this site, Callingpost and email.

Practices: Monday thru Saturday, when we do not have a game we will practice. During the week after school and on Fridays we will let the boys know what our Saturday plans are. Our practice policy is that if a boy misses a practice without telling us and for a legitimate reason, they will miss the next game.

When is a player not eligible to play? All coaches get a weekly report that is generated each Wednesday from reports teachers fill out listing who is failing and who is near failing in their classes. Any student who is not passing 5 classes, is not eligible for the next week. If you have any questions please talk to the coaches. Please know we always stress to your sons the importance of being successful with their studies and that this is much more important than baseball!
