If an injury happens outside of football this policy still applies. Players are asked to still come to the Camp days to continue to learn the game and be part of the Team.
Team and individual photos are taken during a regular practice night, typically the first week of September. All players are expected to attend in their game colours. There will not be a make up or retake date.
