Things to consider:
- Wear athletic shoes(with good support) and socks.
- Bring your own water bottle and sunscreen to rehearsals.
- Wear shirts that cover your shoulders, wear sunglasses, and wear hats.
- If you need to take care of registration or pay fees for school, leave and come back as quickly as possible.
