ALL FOOTBALL PLAYERS MUST ATTEND OFFICIAL WEIGH IN TO PLAY.
On Saturday, August 29 all football players must attend Official Weigh In at the Jon Davis Wrestling Center. Immediately following practice, your player will walk to the wrestling center with their team. Each team will weigh in beginning at 10:00. You will need to pick your player up at the Wrestling Center immediately following their team weigh in. All players must have an official weigh in card to participate in games.
Any player that is unable to make this needs to see Alicia Smith or Eddie Lowry at practice on Tuesday or Thursday. THIS IS NOT AN EVENT YOU WANT TO MISS.

- SPECIAL EVENTS WILL HAVE AN ONLINE SIGNUP-emails will be sent with the link and available on the website.

- Volunteer opportunities will be communicated and coordinated through your team manager. Once the teams are split for the season your team will be assigned a team manager. Additional opportunities may arise throughout the season from the club as a whole, not just your team.
We are in need of medical professionals to help staff our First Aid area. If you can help, please email email@example.com or contact Alicia Smith.
WHERE TO REPORT: PLAYERS SHOULD REPORT TO THE SIGN WITH THEIR AGE GROUP ON IT. For example, if your player will play on the 10 and under team, report to the sign that says “10u”.
WHERE/PARKING: Please park in the designated spaces along Tiger Drive or in the high school parking lot. Any cars parked on along the curbing or illegally parked in fire lanes will be towed.
WHAT TO WEAR: Players should wear their helmets with mouthpiece, shoulder pads with practice jersey, practice pants (black with string) with all seven pads, cleats.
WATER: We expect it to be hot and will take every precaution for player safety during practice. We have scheduled extra water breaks during practice. Players can bring their own water or sports drink but will need to have their name on the bottle and keep it in the designated area or with their parent. If you choose to brink your own drink please remember to pick it up after practice and pick up all trash before you leave.
HEAT: Please instruct your player/cheerleader to let a coach know if he does not feel well or is getting light headed. Coaches will ask players how they feel but sometimes players do not feel comfortable telling coaches in front of other players. Tell them it is not a sign of weakness to be overheated. SAFETY is our first priority!!! We will also have a medical tent set up at each practice to address any injuries and medical related issues.
CLUB PRACTICE: We will practice as a club the first week. Our practice will focus on conditioning, agility, and football specific drills until teams are split. Your child will be tired, hot, and maybe a little sore after practice. Players should get hydrated and rest accordingly after practice.
PRE-PRACTICE RECOMMENDATIONS: Players should stay away from caffeine drinks such as soda and tea before and after practice in order to stay hydrated. Water and Gatorade are recommended during practice days. Also, it is highly recommended that players eat light (fruits are best) before practice… cereal and milk is not a good combination before practice.
