State Of The Program

Welcome to the Flashes Football Newsletter! This newsletter will serve as a way to communicate with all families involved in Franklin Township Football K-12. My goal is to be as transparent as possible and share all of the great things our programs are accomplishing on a monthly basis!


Off season conditioning is in full swing. Coach Bruno is doing an amazing job in the weight room and all players are making great strides in preparation for the 2019 season.Our Varsity/JV players are lifting M,T,Th,F mornings from 6:30-7:30am while our Freshman Team is lifting M,W evenings from 6:30-8:00pm.


If your son is interested in playing next season please have them attend off season workouts so that they are prepared for what it takes to be a Flashes Football player! If you are a player or parent that needs more info please contact Coach Lewis at grant.lewis@ftcsc.org



Thank you,


Coach Lewis

Summer Football Practice Calendar (Tentative)

Please see the tentative summer practice calendar for June and July. We are still waiting on a few pieces of info from the IHSAA, but I wanted to get the info to families as soon as possible. Summer practice is extremely important for players to attend. It is when we install our playbook and get the chance to evaluate each player so that we can create our depth charts as a staff. If there is a time that players cannot attend practice please have them notify their position coach ahead of time so that we can adjust as necessary. The last week of May and Moratorium are great weeks for Family Vacations as our players do not have practice at those times!

Franklin Township Youth Football

Sign up for Franklin Township Youth Football at http://flashesyouthfootball.org/


Spring is upon us, and Summer will be here before we know it! Football and Cheer at FTYF was a HUGE success last year. We had a wonderful recreational league season, we grew tremendously as a league, and we were highly competitive in post season tournaments with one tourney win and multiple runner-up finishes. We cannot wait to grow our numbers this year, and with some changes we're working on, continue to grow as a league and help shape the youth in our township. Please join us and register starting March 1st, so that we can continue to help this township's football and cheer programs grow.
