Dear Dallas Youth Parents and Players,
This email contains the following:
We have sent out the link to the master calendar several times but CLICK HERE to view the calendar. The link is also on the home page of the website. The Master Calendar shows more than just team events, but also our positional skills program (separate registration) and also our Holiday Camp (separate registration). Field locations can change due to weather or Jesuit needs.
Please note that we have changed fields for several practices to the turf since it was open and there is a possibility of inclement weather. We will do this and always update the master schedule when we do so you will know as soon as we make the update.

Please follow us on twitter for weather updates @ironhorselax
Twitter is the easiest and fastest way to learn about cancellations. We will also do our best to get an email out via the website and notify coaches and team managers to communicate with teams.
Unfortunately for us tomorrow could be a choppy start to practices weather wise. We have moved some practices to the turf but we could not move all of them.
We will make a call on practices an hour before they are set to begin so that those commuting do not have to drive. We are not perfect by any means and sometimes we go for it only to be thwarted by the weather and other times we cancel and nothing happens. Keep in mind that weather in one part of the metroplex is not the same as another.
Safe Areas: If we are faced with a tornado on the field we have several safe locations. The bathroom banks at the south side of the stadium and the wrestling room inside the school which is underground.
Jesuit has a lightening protocol that needs to be followed and I have added it below.
Jesuit Lightening Protocol:
Jesuit has a built in lightening detector on the roof of their concession stand/bathroom bank on the south side of the stadium. If the light starts to flash, there is lightening within 10 miles of the facility and the facility will be locked down for a minimum of 30 minutes. Fans, players and coaches will be required to go to their cars. No one is permitted to stay inside the athletic facility nor are they allowed to stand outside the gates for their own safety. Any strike within 10 miles will reset the 30-minute clock on the lightening detector. The athletic facility is all clear when the light stops flashing and the gates to the facility are unlocked by Jesuit personnel.
We are still looking for a few great team managers for 2026 and 2023 Citation. Please email your coach and Tiffany Surran if you are interested in these positions.

A spirit wear email was sent out last week. Nothing is required. Both the bag and spirit wear stores will close this Wednesday, September 19th. CLICK HERE to read about the stores.
