All Paperwork Must Be Completed Prior to Participation
We will have Spring Football on May 3rd, 5th, 10th, 11th, and 12th from 4:00-5:30. Participants will meet in the gym after school. They must have a current Player Packet (physical) on file. They need to wear shorts, t-shirt and tennis shoes (cleats if they already have them). Please do not buy anything special for spring training. This period will give us an opportunity to have an idea of what your child can do prior to tryouts in August. It is recommended but not mandatory to attend these workouts. No helmets or pads will be involved.
Summer Football will take place on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Time will be announced at a later date. They must have current player packet on file as well for this.
We will have a Middle School Football tournament on Wednesday, July 19th at Fort Middle School. More details to follow.
Football Acclimation period will be August 8th – 11th. The tryouts will be from August 14th– 17th. Make sure your child listens to the morning announcements and watch Eagle TV for upcoming news for football. The Acclimation Period is not mandatory but strongly recommended. This will allow us to get to know the participant, evaluate his skills, work ethics, agilities and the ability to work well with others. They will also get a head start on getting in shape and learning some of the basic fundamentals of footwork, blocking and different assignments associated with football. This DOES NOT automatically assure them a spot on the team.
The Acclimation Period and tryouts are after school from 4:00-6:00. All participants will report to the gym and they only need shorts, t-shirt and tennis shoes (may wear cleats if they already have them). DO NOT buy anything for this period. If your child makes the team, we will have a parent meeting about what your child will need. The tryouts usually last 3 days and there may be multiple cuts. Once the team has been selected, there will be a mandatory parent meeting.
Once on the team, players are expected to come to practice everyday (Monday thru Friday) from 4:00-6:00. Parents are required to pick up your child on time. Being a student is first and they are expected to maintain a passing grade in all classes in order to be able to participate. Players will also treat each other with respect, be honest, have integrity and be loyal with one another. Any violations of these could result in suspension from the team.
