A Letter from Head Football Coach, Mike Selzer:
As the school year draws to an end and summer approaches, that means football season is just around the corner. The coaching staff and I are very excited about the upcoming season. To prepare for the season we will be conducting multiple activities. You will see the June, July, and August Football calendars below. The summer activities are an invaluable tool for a successful season. If your son has never attended summer workouts, or has never played football, please encourage him to join us this summer. Attendance during the summer is not mandatory to join the team in the fall; however, it does provide an opportunity to stay in shape, learn skills that will be utilized during the season and increases team unity.
During the summer we will have the weight room open at six o’clock in the evening. At approximately seven o’clock we will move up to the field or track for our running program and cardio workouts in the form of games such as air-force football, two-hand touch, the scramble game, or the punting game.
There are a few details that need to be addressed before the summer gets into full swing.
1) Sports physicals: while your son can participate in the summer activities without a physical, we must have a sports physical before the start of the season August 7th.
2) Team Camps: We will be having our Varsity and Junior Varsity Team Camps each Monday in July and July 27th and 28th. The cost of all July camps is $30.00 which must be paid by the 17 th of July. Included in the cost of camp are our team tee shirts. Commitment to summer activities is extremely important to our success. There is a direct correlation between summer participation and winning football; this is due to the amount of work that we can accomplish while attending our camps.
3) 7 on 7 passing leagues: we will be participating in several passing leagues; dates will be announced when they are finalized. Both Varsity and J.V. teams will attend.
4) Dead Period: Our school will have a dead period from July 2 nd – July 9 th ; during this time there will be no conditioning or sports- related activities.
This will be another exciting season of Cardinal football, and your son will be an integral part of continuing to build on the foundation of success created over past seasons! Please do everything you can to encourage your son’s participation in our summer activities. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at any time
