Dear 7th & 8th Grade Football Players & Parents,

We wanted to take this opportunity to make you aware of several upcoming events for 7th & 8th grade football.  We are hopeful that this will be the most exciting and rewarding football season you’ve yet experienced.  Our goal is to develop well-rounded players who learn not only the game of football, but also the importance of teamwork, dedication, and self-improvement in an atmosphere conducive to building character.  We, as coaches, will do our very best to ensure that each player is utilized to their utmost potential.  Safety is our top concern so all the exercises, drills and team rules are there to ensure your child is physically and mentally fit for the wonderful game of football.

Below is a list of action items and activities that will be taking place this summer.  We would very much like your child’s involvement.  The 7 on 7 passing dates are for any player and gives them the opportunity to go against players their own age from other area schools.  7 on 7’s are done in t-shirts and shorts with no physical contact allowed.  Please let us know if you have any questions.

Action items to remember:

               Physicals

All players must have a physical to play football turned in to the athletic office to participate in football.  Goodrich HS athletic department will sponsor a physical night in June 2018 usually 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the high school.  The cost has been $20.00.  A parent must accompany each player.  This date will be announced by the athletic department as we get closer to June 2018.  Please check with the athletic department.

               Remind 101

Please send your cell phone number to Coach Richards for 8th grade and Coach Hart for 7th grade so they can add you to their Remind 101 app.  You will then be able to receive all information updates in regards to middle school football.

               New Shoes

If you plan on purchasing new football shoes for the season it is advisable to buy them early so your child may break them in properly before the start of practice.  Brand new shoes that have not be broken in will cause blisters.

We look forward to seeing your child on our middle school football teams and are confident their experience will be very worthwhile.  Please contact us if you have any questions or go to your football website for more information.
