SSJ Football Schedule

Mon August 03 2009 @ 03:46 PM

Parents and Players, SSJ CYO Football Camp begins on Mon 8/17 @ East Goshen Park. This is a conditioning day (no pads) and will be held on the soccer field (below the football field) from 5:45 to 7:45.

Please dress all players in maroon shorts and white t-shirt if possible.

The following day (Tues) is the official start of camp and we will be in full equipment. This practice will also be held on the lower soccer field. After Tuesday, the remaining practices will be held on the football field @ East Goshen. We will practice Monday through Friday in week 1 of camp. Then, in weeks 2 & 3 of camp we will move to a Sunday to Thursday schedule. Practice times are from 5:45 to 7:45. Players are required to be at practice field by 5:30.

Our first scrimmage will be on Thurs 8/27 @ 6:00 vs St. Dot's @ East Goshen field. Our second scrimmage will be on Thurs 9/3 @ 6;00 vs St. Aloysius @ St Al's field in Bryn Mawr.

Beginning 9/8 we will begin our regular season practice schedule. We will practice @ the Firehouse on Tues., Thurs, and Fri. nights from 6:00 to 8:00. We require all players to be at the field @ 5:45.

Equipment will be distributed on Sunday 8/9 in the following format : 8th grade 4:30 to 5:15 ; 7th grade 5:15 to 6:00 ; 6th grade 6:00 to 6:45 ; 5th grade 6:45 to 7:30. We provide helmet, shoulder pads, hip,thigh,and knee pads, practice jersey, practice pants,mouthpiece, and football girdle(for hip and tail pads). Many parents have opted (for comfort and sanitary reasons ) to buy their own football girdle. This is probably not a bad idea. We do provide a chinstrap and mouthpiece with the helmet but many opt for an upgraded hard plastic chinstrap and gel filled mouthpiece for extra protection. This is another good upgrade. When purchasing cleats, make sure that they are molded bottoms ( no screw ins). Please call or email me with any equipment questions.Thanks, Coach Rob.

P.S. As many of you may have already heard, it looks like we will be moved up to Division 1 for the upcoming season. This means that we will play the top teams in the area on a weekly basis. Our level of competition will increase significantly. I am confident that you will come prepared when camp starts in Aug.
