Hello Football Families,

I had a few questions regarding open house on Thursday evening. We will still have practice. You can choose to go to open house and come to practice later or remain at the open house.

We are still in need of coaches. If you are interested in helping, please contact Mike Angala at 440-808-1800. Thank you to all of the coaches that have already stepped in to help.

Also, I have an update on our spirit wear. I do have sizes available for try-on at practice. I encourage you to try them on and make sure they fit before you place your order. If you think you need a smaller size, the following options have been made available:
*Youth small short sleeve shirt- item #25
*Youth small long sleeve shirt- item #33
*Youth small crew neck sweatshirt- item #9
All other items are too small to fit the design. Please do not email me your order. Please bring it to practice with payment.

Please remember to leave all equipment at home tomorrow. Please wear tennis shoes.

Thank you,

Delicia

For each practice, your child must bring water, cleats (no metal) and tennis shoes, their practice jersey*, a mouth guard*, helmet* and pads*. [*WYF will provide your athlete with these items]

In the event of rain, we will have practice. In the event of thunder or lightning, we will move indoors and cleats cannot be worn in the high school, so your child must always bring tennis shoes to practice.
