Fall Camp Week 1
Players and Parents,
The season is upon us, and I could not be more excited. We had a summer with many obstacles, but did not make excuses. We continued our program mantra of 'Process over Product" and added "Level Up" to our list of motivational sayings. We hope to carry these ideas into the official start of the season Monday August 12th. Each player needs to focus on improvement each day, so that as a team our overall potential can be its highest. Each player needs to foster a growth mindset that doesn't fear failure but celebrates effort, growth, and the power of "yet". The coaching staff is very excited to get onto the next step in this journey, the official season! Please make sure your work the Season Ready Checklist so that we can hit the ground running August 12th.
LOCATION- At football activities the first two weeks of fall camp will take place at Edgewood Middle School (With the exception of 8/21 Picture Night). Please continue to enter the building through Door 3, located just north of the main entrance.
