GAME SCHEDULE / PICK-UP GAMES:
Included with this Information Packet is a copy of the day’s game schedule. We did our
best to accommodate various scheduling requests made by the teams. All teams are
scheduled for at least 6 games, at least 2 of which will be played on the large stadium
Please review your team’s individual schedule.
LOCATION / DIRECTIONS:
Play-Day is being held at the Knox Junior High School athletic fields in The Woodlands.
Maps and written directions are included with this Information Packet, but please be
aware that finding Knox can be tricky.
Do not "Google" or "MapQuest" Knox. Its address will appear as 12104 Sawmill Road,
which is correct. However, this address will take you to the front of the school and the
athletic fields are in the rear and are inaccessible from the Sawmill side.
Most of you should enter The Woodlands from I-45 via Sawdust Road. Follow Sawdust
Road west from I-45 until you see a Wal-Mart on your right. At the intersection just past
the Wal-Mart (look for the traffic light), Sawdust Road actually turns left -- i.e., two lanes
of traffic turn left at the light and continue as Sawdust Road, while the remaining lanes
become Grogan's Mill Road, which veers to the right. Stay on Grogan's Mill Road, but
move quickly to the left lane.
As you proceed north on Grogan's Mill, a large entry sign for "The Woodlands" will
appear in the landscaped center esplanade. This sign will appear quickly because
your approach to it is somewhat obscured by trees in the esplanade. There is a left
turn lane immediately before The Woodlands entry sign. Turn left here and you will
be at the Knox athletic fields (the football stadium will be on your right as you enter).
Unfortunately, this entry to Knox is unmarked and there are virtually no visible street
signs to guide you. If you miss the left turn, perform a u-turn at your first opportunity
and on the way back, there is a sign on the right indicating the Knox / Wilkerson
In case of inclement weather, we will send out emails and post a notice on our website
