Football practice begins August 6th. From August 7th through August 24th, practices are 5 days a week from 4:30 to 6:30PM. While we understand families have many commitments and time constraints during the Summer, we are expecting our players to be committed. If you have scheduled commitments during August, please contact us and we will find a solution so your child can particpate.
