Hello Football Families,

First on behalf of myself and the coaches thanks for letting your children participate in camp this week and for signing them up for football. It was a very successful week and we are so glad it is FOOTBALL season!

Coach Ted Fries will be coaching our 5/6 grade boys this year and Coach Travis Henry will take the 3/4 grade boys. Their contact information is below so please contact them if you have any questions regarding football this season.

A few things to note as we get started this season:

Tomorrow 7/31/2015 we will NOT have camp.

Starting August 4th practice will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-7:30 and Saturdays from 9-10:30 at St. Rose.

For practice the first week children are only to wear their helmets, T-Shirts, Shorts and cleats. Once the team starts full contact practices, in a few weeks, the children will need practice pants and a practice jersey. The pants can have either pads built in or the snap in pads. We have the snap in pads for this pant type if you need to use them. You can find these at Walmart or Dicks Sporting Goods.

If your child was not at camp we will get them fitted with football gear at practice.

Any child interested in playing football or any sports at St. Rose this year needs to be registered with CYO. You can register your child by going to the link below and signing them up for the sports that they would like to participate in at St. Rose this year.

The football fees have not been set for this year and this should be done by the first day of school. If your child has participated in the past few years and has a reversible jersey with their name and number on it please check to see if it fits over their pads that they were given today. If the jersey still fits please email the coaches and myself with a yes it fits and what number the child has. You will not have to purchase an additional jersey this year if this is the case. If the numbers or letters are falling off T-Shirt Express can put these back on for us so that shouldn’t be a problem, but let us know that as well.

We want every child who is interested in playing to be able to participate and we will make sure that they can. If you need assistance with the fees, cleats, pants or jersey please don’t hesitate to let us know. I know many of our families have items that their children have outgrown and we can work through the fees.

GO LIONS!
