Varsity Home Opener this Friday at 7PM - Youth Night

Your 2019 Canandaigua Braves Varsity plays their home opener on Braves Field Friday night versus Webster Thomas at 7PM. Come out and cheer on the boys as well as our Baker players on Youth Night!

The JV Braves hit the road on Saturday morning against Webster Thomas. Start time is 11AM. The JV Braves are coming off a BIG 33-14 win against Victor at Braves Field this past Saturday!

Volunteers - Parents needed from Baker to Brave!

No Braves football season can be successful without the help of YOU! In game concession help is needed THIS Friday night and also next Saturday!


THANK YOU for all those who have signed up for a shift. With varsity home games on back to back weekends in September, we need your help! Please consider a shift or two in concessions this season. You'll be helping the program and it is a great chance to get to know other Braves parents.

Remember - With the exception of grilling at the Evans game (which is a lot of fun, but a specific job to sign up for) you are not preparing food in concessions. You are taking the orders and funds or serving food.

Teddi Bowl Recap

Despite a disappointing outcome on the field, Thursday nights Teddi Bowl was a great success for Camp Good Days and Times and a great opportunity for our varsity team to meet some incredible kids. Thanks to all who supported this event and our Braves. What a great atmosphere!

Nolans Teammate of the Week

Throughout the season, each week, a Canandaigua Football Player will receive the "Nolan's Teammate of the Week Award" for the named player's contributions to the team both on and off the field.

This week's Nolan's Ideal Teammate of the Week Award goes to Zach Wantuck#25 on the Canandaigua Varsity. Zach is the consummate teammate. He puts the team’s best interest and goals in front of his own. He works hard with a great attitude, every day. Great work Zach!

Merchandise available Friday at Braves Field!

Merchandise sale: Come on out and see the great selection of Braves gear at this week’s home Varsity game Friday, September 13th @ Braves Stadium - Look for the red tent near the end zone closest to the Braves Field parking lot. We take cash, credit cards, and checks.

All practice/games are held on the lower fields at the Academy (near the JV Baseball Field). Players will be given a t-shirt to keep and flags to wear each night. They should dress appropriately for the weather and cleats are recommended. I have attached the schedule for all levels to this email and it is available on the website!! Please arrive a little before 6:00pm to allow for the coaches to get things going on time next Tuesday. It is very important to try and arrive on time as we begin to fight the darkness this time of year!

Friday 9/13: Youth Night at the CA Varsity Football Game
Practice from 5:00-6:15pm
ALL players will be introduced as a group before the start of the Varsity game vs. Webster Thomas!!!

The flag division of Frank Baker Football is very instructional in nature. Each night will be a combination of skill development and competitive game play. No scores are kept! The main goal is to develop interest in the game and fundamental skills.
