Dear Football Parents:
Football equipment will be issued on Friday, July 29. Returning players will be able to pick up equipment between 9:00 and 11:00 am. New players may pick up their equipment from 11:00 am until 12 noon.
Practice will begin on Monday, August 1. The first session will be from 7:30 am until 9:45 am. The second practice will be from 11:15 am until 1:00 pm. Players should pack a lunch (or snack) and bring Gatorade or water for their break between practices. Practice sessions from Tuesday, August 2 to Wednesday, August 10 will follow the same schedule. We will practice on Saturday, August 6 from 8:00 am until 10:00 am in full pads. It will be our first day of full contact drills. I will assign players to either the JV or Varsity after practice on the 6th.
During the week of August 15 to August 19 we will practice from 4:15 pm until 7:15 pm. Both JV and varsity will practice but in separate groups. Should the heat become an issue we may have to start practices later in the day.
Once classes begin on Tuesday, August 23 all practices will be from 4:15 pm until 6:30 pm with the exception of game days. The activity buses will leave Monticello High School promptly at 6:45 pm each regular school day. NOTE: Practice times and dates may vary at coach’s discretion, including Saturday and Holiday practices.
The JV team will scrimmage Goochland and Ft. Defiance on Thursday, August 11 at 6:00 pm. The varsity will scrimmage Goochland and Ft. Defiance on Friday, August 12 at 6:00 pm. Both scrimmages will be at Monticello High School. The JV will travel to Heritage (Lynchburg) on Thursday, August 18. The varsity will host Heritage in a Benefit Game on Friday, August 19. Both Heritage games will begin at 7:00 pm.
FYI, there will be no practice or weight room activities from July 25-29. This is a chance for all players to enjoy their last week of summer before football begins on August 1st.
