The Batesville High School athletic department would like to announce Open Practice Night on Thursday, Aug. 8, at BHS. The BHS athletic teams are excited about the upcoming season. Coaches and players would like you to get a glimpse of what to expect.
The Bulldog practices that evening will be open to the public. Fans are welcome to sit and watch a single practice or wander around the campus to see a variety. Practices will begin at 5 p.m. that evening and last until 6:30 p.m. depending on the weather.
There will be no special games or presentations. You will simply get to see them in action as they prepare for the season ahead.
“This is something new for us,” BHS athletic director Bryan Helvie said. “We are excited about the fall season ahead and hope families and friends will take advantage of this opportunity.
“This will also be chance for everyone to purchase all-sports passes. We will have them on sale just inside Entrance N at BHS next to the auxiliary gym,” he added.
The first contests of the fall season kick off Saturday, Aug. 17.
All-sports tickets will be on sale the evening of Aug. 8 inside Entrance N at BHS. All-Sports Passes are a great way to help support the student-athletes as well as save money on attendance throughout the school year. Adult passes are $60 each, while senior citizen (age 60 to 74) passes are $10. Seniors citizens age 75 and up will be issued a pass free of charge. Student passes are $40. Schedules will also be available on this evening.
All-Sports passes will also be on sale Monday, Aug. 12, from 5-7 p.m. at Batesville High School (Entrance N). They can also be purchased 8:15 a.m. until 2 p.m. each school day.
