2017-2018 Junior High Football

Parents and Future Eagles,

As the 2016-2017 school year winds down we are already beginning to make plans for a successful football season in 2017. A few important dates and important reminders that you need to be aware of are listed below. Please take a moment to look over the information so that the beginning of the year can be as smooth as possible.

 

August 28th, 2017 – First day of school and FOOTBALL EQUIPMENT PICK-UP FROM 4-7 PM AT THE JUNIOR HIGH GYM FOR INCOMING 7TH AND 8TH GRADERS. Please plan on being here as this will be the only time we can hand out equipment due to a very tight schedule.

To be able to pick up football equipment all participants must meet the following requirements:

  • Completed sports physical dated AFTER May 1, 2017 by a doctor. All online forms must be signed on www.rankonesport.com by legal guardian.
  • Athletes must provide a combination lock on the day of equipment pick-up or they will not be given equipment. Please purchase a Masterlock combination lock.  Locks with keys are often lost and usually are not a good idea.
August 29th, 2017 – First day of PRACTICE. Players are only allowed to practice in T-shirt, shorts, and helmet as the state of Texas requires a 4 day acclimation period.
September 4th, 2017 – NO PRACTICE – LABOR DAY HOLIDAY
September 5th, 2017 – First day in PADS.
September 14th, 2017 – FIRST GAME/SCRIMMAGE – Any participant who misses ONE or MORE days of practice will NOT be allowed to participate in this game/scrimmage. The state of Texas requires 7 days of practice in pads before competition. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE. This is why it is very important that all players have met all the requirements to pick up their equipment on August 28th, 2017 so they are ready to practice on August 29th, 2017.
 
Have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you on August 28th!!!
