Spontaneous practice officially begins on Monday, January 13, 2020. Practice is optional, and is held at the Thornell Road Elementary cafeteria. Sessions begin at 6pm and run until 7:30. Each week there will be OM advisors available and other teams and coaches to practice with. If you are a coach, please bring a spontaneous activity to run with the other teams attending.
Practices run in stations, with a coach or advisor at each station. Your team will independently move from station to station practicing a variety of Spontaneous activities. Your entire team need not be present to participate.
