A new sports practice schedule will be introduced at C.L. Jones Middle School this year. The schedule will offer a wide range of benefits to students in both athletics and academics.
“In the past the bell rang for 8th period to start and that was when athletes would leave class to start practice. This year they’ll have academic classes all day and when the bell rings at 3:30 p.m. they’ll go to practice,” Activity Director Ed Rowse explained.
Practice will take place after school from 3:30 p.m. until approximately 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 2:10 p.m. to approximately 4:10 p.m. on Friday. Wednesday practices will end earlier to accommodate students who attend weekly youth group events. Requests from coaches for a longer practice time introduced the idea of having practices after school.
