Volunteers - Parents needed from Baker to Brave!

No Braves football season can be successful without the help of YOU! We need staffing for Varsity Home games, as well as JV home games during the season. 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.


We are firming up dates and times for non - Varsity games. In the meantime, please consider a volunteer opportunity at one or more Varsity games!

Mad Dog Camp for Varsity and JV Players - Donation Requested for Food Costs

The annual Mad Dog Camp is scheduled for Tuesday, August 27th through Wednesday, August 28th at Camp Stella Maris on Conesus Lake. This camp is for JV and Varsity players only. This year rather than asking for food donations, we are asking for JV and Varsity parents to contribute $10 per family to cover the cost of meals for the players. (If you are unsure if your 9th grader will be a JV or Freshman team member you can wait until you know)

More information with a link to PayPal coming.

Season Openers for Varsity and JV Teams

Believe it or not the season is right around the corner! All season openers are special, but this year we will be participating in the Teddi Bowl at Victor HS in support of Camp Good Days and Special Times. Already, the Varsity Players have visited Camp Good Days and spent time with some of the campers.
