2020 Football Preseason Meeting Updates


A quick reminder that there is no in person meeting our traditional Football Kick Off.

There is also no virtual kick off football training this Saturday. Instead there will be multiple preseason virtual trainings by position with date & time details to follow. These trainings will be hosted virtually on different days & times to allow people to attend multiple position trainings that would benefit them.

Because of this, we will not be able to host officiating gear vendors. Please take the time to check your gear and order online anything you might now to prepare for the rapidly approaching season.
