The first day is finally upon us and we hope everyone is ready for some football!
With practices beginning, we want to share some information on what to expect for the first day and week.
Each day for the first two weeks, players will be required to check-in before practice. Each field will have a table set-up for check-in. The first day we will also be labeling helmets so it will take a little extra time. Please plan to arrive early for check-in, players are expected to be ready and on field when practice begins at 6pm.
If you have not completed registration, specifically providing a current medical release form, players are not able to participate until that is received, no exceptions. If you’ve not provided it yet, please bring to check-in.
Practice will run 6-8pm, 5 days a week. In order for players to move to full gear practices next week, they must complete 10 hours of conditioning. If any practice is missed this week, players will be expected to complete conditioning time next week before moving to full gear.
Players at all levels should wear football cleats, shorts/shirts, mouth guard and helmets (Chin strap attached to helmet) for the first week. Any adjustments due to the heat and/or air index will be communicated before practices, after 3pm, through email and on social media (Facebook: Sherwood Youth Football Association (SYFA) and Instagram: Sherwoodfootball). Please make sure your player brings a lot of water in an insulated container so it stays cool, due to the warm temperatures.
Grades 3rd & 4th: The Ridges
Grades 5th & 6th: Hawks View
Grades 7th & 8th: Sherwood Middle School
If your interested in helping the coaches out during the first week of evaluations, see one of the head coaches at the field your player is assigned. Help is often needed to hold bags or other tasks at different stations.
Reminder that we do have a Mandatory Parents Meeting this week at each grade level/field. Those are as follows:
*7/8 8/12 6:30pm
*5/6 8/11 6:30pm
*3/4 8/10 6:30pm
Lastly, specific to our 7th & 8th Grade players, they are required to complete impact testing at the beginning of the season. This week a separate email will be sent to those players with instructions on how to complete the testing. It will be completed by the player at home on a computer. The test will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and should be done before practice. If you don’t have access to a computer, notify our Player Safety Coach, Tim Carkin, to coordinate a device and time to take the online test. These are used for baselines in the case where a player is suspected of/has a concussion, for return to play.
