We have several dates planned for equipment pickup for REGISTERED tackle football players. Your player MUST be registered prior to renting any of our equipment. These sessions are for those playing tackle football in our 2019 season. Flag players do not need to attend these sessions as your coaches will provide your equipment once you are assigned a team. Cheerleaders will receive their cheer uniforms at the meet & greet in July.
Wednesday, June 5th - 6:00-8:00 pm
Sunday, June 9th - Noon - 3:00 pm
Friday, June 14th - 6:00 - 8:00 pm
Wednesday, June 19th - 6:00 - 8:00 pm
Sunday, June 23rd - Noon - 3:00 pm
Wednesday, June 26th - 6:00 - 8:00 pm
All of the above sessions will be held at our storage facility on the far northeast corner of Ivy Tech near Beaver Materials (high school) football field.
Our final youth coaches clinics will be in June. We need willing and able bodied level headed folks to help our league get better and serve the youth in our community. The reason we are doing these clinics is to help give the tools to improve our league and provide a good experience to the kids while teaching proper football fundamentals and toughness.
Both sessions will be at Ivy Tech, enter through gate 18 and follow the signs. Bring pen and paper. Let's have some fun and help one another get better! The final two sessions will run from 6PM-8PM.
June 9th - Offensive Playbook - Install - Review
