Equipment handout takes place at the football shed at the high school practice field. Please park in the high school parking lot and walk your player up to the shed. An adult must be present to sign paperwork at this time or equipment will not be given to the player.
Players will be issued a helmet, shoulder pads, and a game uniform. We have practice pants available but have limited quantities, which means you may end up having to get a pair of practice pants on your own. Players will also need a padded football girdle to wear under game pants, a mouth guard, and a pair of cleats. We have extra mouth guards available if needed. Please make sure to send players with a water bottle each night of practice.
All practices will be held at Howe Field (the old athletic field).
School begins on August 28th, each team will go down to 3 days of practice a week at this point. The head coach of your players team will decide which 3 days and relay that information to you. Practices will still run from 6-8pm no matter the days.
We will not have a league game schedule until the end of August. Teams will play a total of 6 games, all games are held on Saturday. Home games are played at our high school football stadium. Our first game will be the Saturday after Labor Day - September 9th, with the final game taking place either October 14th or 21st. Game times vary by grade, 3rd grade plays the earliest game and then down the line.
Physical: In order to participate players must bring a current physical (dated on or after April 15th, 2023) to the first day of practice. Players will not be able to participate until we have their physical.
