If you are in the Class of 2025 please complete the contact information form to be added to our communication list. 


Time Commitment:

Practice starts every day right after school. If a player cannot be at practice or will be late, have to let us know BEFORE practice starts. The PLAYER should be in contact with the coaches, NOT the parents.

Typically the first two weeks in August we are there will be no football related events.  It is recommended to schedule family vacations during this time.


Pre-Season Conditioning:

  1. All Workouts are on the Program Calendar, any updates to the calendar will be emailed. We have a three day a week Training Program. All lifts are supervised and run by our Strength Staff. There will be two lifting times to accommodate players with summer jobs. A morning lift and an afternoon lift. Weight Training is free for all athletes to use because of our fundraising efforts.
  2. EMW's: ("Early Morning Workouts" are speed and agility sessions, also free for athletes at the high school. These are three times a week in the early morning throughout the summer.
  3. Yoga is offered once a week for the boys, also free. Yoga has become a huge part of our training program for flexibility and recovery.
