Ola Middle School
2021-2022 Football Information
As the school year comes to a close, we are beginning preparation for the upcoming ‘21-’22 football season. We want to ensure that everyone has the information necessary for players to be prepared to participate this fall.
Players will need to participate in 5 days of heat acclimatization prior to being able to receive pads. We will begin the heat acclimatization starting the week of July 26 - 30th from 4:30 - 6:30 at the middle school practice field located behind the school.
Conditioning will continue through Aug 2nd - 4th 4:30-6:30.
8th Grade tryouts will be held Thursday Aug 5th 4:30 - 6:30.
7th Grade tryouts will be held Friday Aug 6th 4:30 - 6:30.
In order for players to be eligible to participate, all players must be cleared and have a current physical and supporting paperwork. All paperwork must be completed and uploaded to Dragonfly Max. All forms needed to be completed by a physician can be found below along with the instructions on how to set up and complete your DragonFly account.
Prospective players must also meet eligibility requirements in order to participate. Players must pass 3 out of the 4 academic core classes and an average of 70% or higher in their connections classes from the previous second semester in order to be eligible to play.
Covid protocols will continue to be followed moving into the fall. If players are indoors, masks will be required. Players will be responsible for providing their own water bottles. We will be unable to provide water bottles for players, however we will provide refilling stations for the players. Due to Covid protocols, Parents will not be permitted to watch practices.
Players practice attire should be appropriate for the heat. We recommend athletic shorts, T shirt, and athletic shoes.
