    The 2019-2020 football season will begin with tryouts on August 16th and 17th (Saturday) from 3:30-5:30 PM.  Please be dropped off at the gym by 3:15 to get signed in with the coaches.  Parents, it will be helpful if you can walk your student-athlete in to make sure they are all set with their paperwork before taking off.  BEFORE YOU ARE ALLOWED TO TRYOUT, you must have turned in an up to date sports physical, parent form, and have watched the concussion video with a parent or guardian. The concussion video will be shown on Tuesday, August 13th, and Thursday, August 15th at 6 PM in the JCMS gym.  We will also be checking students' grades and attendance from the previous semester.  Students must have passed all their core classes and at least 1 elective class, and may not have more than 10 unexcused absences. 


    At tryouts, please come dressed in an athletic shirt and shorts and bring tennis shoes and cleats.  If you do not have cleats at the moment, that is okay.  Water will be provided, but you can bring your own as well. Be prepared for conditioning for the first couple days. It is crucial that students come to practice well hydrated and drink water throughout practice. If any student requires an inhaler device, please bring it to Coach Huygens at the start of practice. 

    Students who make the team will be issued:

    1. Helmet

    2. Shoulder Pads

    3. Girdle

    4. Practice Pants/Jersey

    5. Game Pants/Jersey

    Please feel free to bring your own shoulder pads, girdles, and mouthpieces if you have them. You will be permitted to wear these items as long as they meet regulation standards for Junior High football. All students who make the team will be required to purchase their own game socks - Knee High, Gold. For any student who cannot complete this purchase, see Coach Huygens if you make the team.
