Summer Fundraiser

Good Morning, Parents:

We have had a strong first two days of camp. They coaches and boys are excited about the season ahead. The varsity is in full swing with practicing techniques, schemes, and completing speed and strength workouts. The lower level are have been working on fundamentals on the field, with a focus on offense, and developing proper lifting technique while they are strength training. The numbers for the incoming freshmen are very strong. As we stand right now, we are at 30 freshmen, but that number is expected to grow.

This morning we kicked off our summer fundraiser. The boys were given twenty discount cards to sell. The expectation is that they sell twenty. We spoke with them this morning about how to sell, where to sell, and whom to sell to. There are incentives for the athletes to sell the cards. like sitting out during conditioning sessions if they sell 10 cards by Thursday, free clothing items if they sell 20+ cards, and various cash prizes for top sellers at each level. The fundraisers we do are necessary. They serve the purpose providing your sons with the best equipment, training tools, and gear possible. Your sons should bring the money they collect to their fundraising coach each morning before camp starts. On THURSDAY, JUNE 22, from 4-7 PM, the athletes will be BLITZING the neighborhoods. I will be giving them all jerseys to wear as they sell cards in various assigned areas and neighborhoods. Athletes are expected to attend this event.

All of the funds raised will benefit the athletes. Please help them with the selling of the cards by leading them to a few neighbors, friends of the family, or family members. Also, if you work in the area, please take a few of them with you to work. We truly appreciate your time and energy.

Thank you,

Football Meeting Documents, Team Shop, Golf Outing

Good Morning, Parents and Guardians:

I have attached the 2017 Football Calendar. Please note that dates and times of events can change, but rarely do. Also, attached you will see the Parent Meeting presentation. If you did not attend, I recommend that you read through the slides.

I have reopened the online team shop that runs through BSN Sports. All of the items you see online are common items athletes like to wear during practice and games. The purpose of the online store is to provide you with discounted prices on items from name brands, like Nike and Underarmour.. The team shop will only be open until June 12th.

Incoming freshmen will get theirs on the first day of camp.
