Football 2021 - Information Night 2/18/2021
We will not be able to host our traditional Informational Meeting/ Meet and Greet this year BUT we will be scheduling a virtual parent night where I will be covering all of the ins and outs of the season as well as an in-depth look at what our programs believes in. The date is set for Thursday, February 18th @ 6PM.
This is one of my favorite events of the year and I look forward to getting to meet each and everyone one of you. Football is such a unique experience and it truly holds some of my fondest memories growing up. Middle school is the PERFECT time to start playing football if your child has never played in the past but is interested. The game is at a transitional phase during middle school and it really provides an even playing field for experienced and first time players a like. If your child is looking to be a part of something special- I encourage you to sign up for our virtual information night!
