Exit 86, go left to Carpinteria Ave, go right to Linden, then left to the end of the road. Parking: there is free parking at the end of Linden or side streets by the houses, or you can pay $8 to park in the state beach parking [Go left on Palm Ave from Carpinteria Ave which is before Linden follow signs to the campground]. The plan will be to start practice at 10:30 which gives you time to sleep in a little. we will be doing fun relay games at the end of practice parents and siblings are invited to participate too!!
