Central Park The New Vipers Practice Facility
For the first couple of years for the Vipers, Sycamore Park was a suitable place to practice. It was never in use, it was close for a number of players, and as it is right in the middle between Pearson and M.M. Robinson, it was local to where all of our games are played. However, with the size of the team and the stronger arms we're employing to spread the ball around, Vipers have outgrown Sycamore Park.
Therefore, as of now, all practices will now be held at Central Park. There's plenty of room and parking and it's easy for all players to get to when a practice is called. Just remember to use the New Street Entrance to the Park, and not the Guelph Line entrance.
