Dear Football Parents:
Summer workouts and weightlifting begin for prospective players on Monday, June 17. I am giving all players the week off- the first week that school is over to do the things that you want to do and have fun! After that, I expect you to attend workouts beginning on the June 17. We will lift then go outside on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Thursday’s from 6:15-7:45pm. Other summer activities (7v7 or camp opportunities) may be announced at conditioning. There will be no practice or weight room activities from July 1-7 (VHSL Dead Period) as well as the last full week of July 29-August 4. This is a chance for all players to enjoy their last week of summer before football begins on August 5.
Football equipment will be issued on Friday, August 2. All 10th-12th graders, and 9th graders with Coach Lloyd’s permission, can pick up equipment between 9:00am and 12:00pm. New and JV players may pick up their equipment on August 15 from 4:30-6:30 and the first JV practice is August 19 from 4:30-6:30pm.
Practice will begin on Monday, August 5. The first week of practice, there will be two sessions each day. The first session will be from 7:30-9:30am. The second practice will be from 11:00am-12:30pm. Players should pack a lunch (or snack) and bring Gatorade or water for their break between practices. NOTE: Players must have a current VHSL physical form (dated after May 1, 2019) on file to be eligible to practice. During the week of August 12 to August 16, we will practice from 4:15-6:15pm. Should the heat become an issue we may have to start practices later in the day.
Once classes begin on Wednesday, August 21, all practices will be from 4:15-6:30 pm with the exception of game days. The activity buses will leave Monticello High School promptly at 6:45pm each regular school day. NOTE: Practice times and dates may vary at coach’s discretion, including Saturday and Holiday practices.
There will be two preseason scrimmages. The first one will be home against Fort Defiance/James Monroe on August 16. The second scrimmage will be a benefit game at home vs Goochland HS on August 23. Our season opener is home against Spotsylvania starting at 7:00pm on August 30. The rest of the seasons schedule can be found on the athletics website at www.monticellomustangs.org.
