Football

All participants will need to make sure they bring shorts, t-shirt and football cleats.  7th grade will meet in the gym after school and meet with Coach Schulte; while the 8th grade will go their locker room after school and meet with Coach Starner.  All participants need to have a physical on file in order to participate in practice the first day.  The State Rule says that ALL football participants must have 10 practices in prior to their first contest.   Both grades have exactly 11 practices prior to their first game, so you don't want to miss two days of practice or participants will not be able to play in the first game.  Regular practice will be held on the practice field West of the Middle School from 3:30 - 5:15 on a typical day.   Parents can pick up athletes in the front parking lot outside the practice facility.   Football will have their parent meeting on Thursday, August 26th after practice (5:30)  7th grade will be in the Cafeteria and the 8th grade will be in the Media Center.  Team Pictures are scheduled for Thursday, September 2nd.  Picture envelopes and other information will be handed out at the parent meeting.  The first contest for both grades will be on Thursday, September 9th at Home vs. Clarinda.
