GENERAL INFORMATION

As of now our district has been given the go ahead to have a middle school football season. The district is allowing for face to face instruction and athletic practices to begin on September 8th.  The first week of in person workouts will begin on Tuesday, September 8th through Friday, September 11th.  This will only be Strength and Conditioning for 1 hour.  The first day of football practice will be on Monday, September 14th.  Unfortunately, this is all the information I can give out at this time.  Information about our season, requirements, game/practice schedules, safety regulations, parent meetings, practices for virtual learners, etc. will be coming very soon.  I know everyone will have questions in regard to these subjects.  

However, due to the extreme heat during this time of the year and having such a long lay-off because of the pandemic, it is strongly recommended that you begin conditioning on your own now!  Our games will begin at 4:30pm so conditioning should be performed during this time of the day.  Any type of activity, which keeps your heart rate up for 15 to 20-minute intervals, is encouraged.  Below is an example of some of the things that can be done to prepare you for the upcoming season.  

M-W-F:  Speed Training

  1. 2-minute warm up (jog, jump rope, high knees, jumping jacks, etc.)
  2. Stretching exercises
  3. Ten 10-yard sprints with 1 minute of rest between reps.  Six 20-yard sprints with 2 minutes of rest between reps.  Four 40-yard sprints with 4 minutes of rest between reps.
  4. Cool down – light jog and stretching exercises.  

T-TH: Strength Training

  1. 2-minute warm up (job, jump rope, high knees, jumping jacks, etc.)
  2. Stretching exercises
  3. 2 sets of 20 push-ups and a 3rd set of push-ups until failure
  4. 3 sets of 30 sit ups
  5. 2 sets of 10-yard lunges and 2 sets of 20-yard lunges with good form (never let your front knee pass our toes)
  6. Cool down – Light jog and stretching exercises. 

You may change up the workouts to fit your use of space and what is available to you.  Remember to continue to practice safe distancing if you choose to leave your home.  I want everyone safe while preparing for the upcoming season.  ALWAYS KEEP IN MIND OUR SEASON, SCHEDULE, AND IN PERSON PRACTICES ARE STILL SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
