All coaches in the McDonald's League are volunteers, mainly Mom's & Dad's with some college students. Therefore, practice times are set based on the Coach's availability & work schedule. Sometimes, parents like to coach, so they can coordinate their child's schedule as they are already bringing their child to practice.
Ocassionally, practice may begin as early as 4:00pm - 4:30pm (some teams and coaches agree to do this). Commonly, practice will start around 5:30pm or 6:00pm for the younger ages. A second time slot of 6:30pm to 7:45pm will host the older ages. Again , these are guidelines and the volunteer coach's availability & schedule will ultimately determine the exact practice time.
