    2022-2023 Football Information

                  Welcome to the 2022-23 school year and the 2022-23 LGMS football season. As we begin to prepare for our upcoming season, we want to provide you with important dates and information.

    Players will have to participate in 5 days of heat acclimatization prior to being able to receive pads therefore attendance is mandatory for these 5 days. Acclimation will begin on August 8th through August 12th, times are 4:30- 6:00. Practice times for both teams will be determined after teams are selected post try outs.

    Tryouts for both 7th and 8th Grade will be on August 15th and 16th, times will also be from 4:30-6:30.

                  All players wanting to try out for football must have a current physical and all other paperwork completed and uploaded in DragonFly, a handout will be provided for setting up a DragonFly account. Players trying out 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.

                  As continued from last year, we will not provide water bottles for each player, players are required to bring their own water bottle to practice. We will have areas designated for players to fill their water bottles during each session. Each player will need to provide their own practice clothes for acclimation, please wear only shorts and shirts that are white, blue, grey, or black (Wildcats shirts are preferred).

                  Please if you have any questions regarding the information provided or the upcoming season please reach out to one of us. We look forward to working with our student athletes this upcoming season.
