REMINDERS


Physicals

All incoming 9th graders and incoming 12th graders need updated Sports Qualifying Physicals. These can be completed with your primary care provider, or through any local clinics. Once completed they need to be turned into Sue Weber in the Activities Office at Irondale. Your online registration for the season can not be completed until this has been updated in the computer system, and you can not participate until your online registration is completed. My suggestion is that you get it done before August 1st, so that you won't miss practice time waiting for it to be compelted.

Many places offer free Sports Physicals this time of year. Including Nova Care, our athletic training partner. There will be an email soon about dates and times those will be offered. Other options for free Sports Physicals include:

2018 Mini Camp #2 Weekly Plan

Mini Camp #2 Weekly Plan

7/20/2018 Update

Last weekend we held a great event as Moe's that raised over $1500 which a large portion of which will be donated to the Randy Shaver Cancer Fund. Special thanks to all the player and parent volunteers who made it happen. Special thanks to Mike Martin our Huddle Club President for overseeing the event, and Brain Glodek for performing.


We are excited for Mini-Camp #2, and the start of the season right around the corner. I am including some initial dates and times for Fall Training Camp this year, I will send a detailed schedule out closer to the season start. We are going to be moving practice into the afternoon and evening time this year for Fall Training Camp. I know this is a change from how we operated in the past, but this schedule creates the least amount of conflicts with district training our coaching staff have to do, and lets the boys get some days to sleep in before the year starts. You have over three weeks notice for jobs, so the expectation is players make all practice and meetings.


Please make sure you look over each reminder, take necessary actions, and add dates to your calendar.


Mini Camp #2 July 23, 24, 25, 26 4pm-7pm NOW INCLUDING 9th GRADERS
