Good Morning, Parents and Guardians:
I know the end of the school year is crazy for all of us. That is why I wanted to send you some reminders for summer camp and other important dates ahead of us, in regards to football. I have attached a copy of the 2018 Football Calendar (dates and times are subject to change). Some parents have asked about the conflict of students taking summer school or bridge classes, and how that will impact football. Those classes do not start until 8:30 AM. Those students enrolled in summer school or bridge classes will be released from football camp at 8:10 AM to clean up and get to class. The goal is to complete most of the on-the-field work prior to them leaving for classes.
Summer camp registration for all incoming freshmen through current juniors is open. Registration can take place online (see below) or in person at the Glen Ellyn Park District – Spring Avenue location. All student athletes must be registered for camp in order to be issued a helmet, shoulder pads, practice jerseys, and practice uniform. All football equipment and gear will be distributed during finals week (May 29-June 1) to current Freshmen through juniors. Incoming Freshmen will receive their gear on the first day of camp.
Summer camp is critical for the development of the student-athletes’ skills and learning the schemes that we will use during the regular season. Attendance to summer camp is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I do not want tuition costs to be an issue. Please email me or call me for information on potential scholarships or financial assistance.
