August 9, 2020

Well we made it through our first week of Football Practice. There are a few things that I want to make you aware/remind you of.

- Each Player must have 225 minutes (5 45 min session) of conditioning before they can put on pads. If for any reason you missed the first week of practice you will need to get with your coach and get this made up. 

- When you come to practice this week, you should be in full pads. Please try all your stuff on today or tomorrow morning to make sure you know how it all goes. Shoulder pads covered by a practice Jersey; you should not wear your game jersey to practice at all. All your shoulder pads should be covered, not hanging out the sleeves. This is so the shoulder pads protect correctly. There are a couple options when it comes to pants. You can wear the pair that you got from us, to practice in and to games. Some people chose to have a pair of pants or football girdle to practice in, and that is fine. If you do have a girdle, please make sure it has knee pads or that you get other knee pads to practice in.  Your knees need to be covered.

- Make sure that you have your mouth guard every day.  You should not practice if you do not have it. 

- If for some reason you are having equipment issues please talk to your coach each of them has extra stuff in their bags if needed.  If they do not have what you need, please get a hold of one of the board members to assist you in what you need. 

Schedules- We know that our first game will be August 22, but actual schedules will not be out till sometime around the 17th.  This is just how it is; we will get them out to you as soon as we have them. You can go to the WFFL site for more info as well. 

Thanks, and Good luck this week!

Practice Starts Today!

 

Dates/Times/Locations: We set the time for the first practice so that we can try to keep it organized. After the first day, coaches can adjust the time of their individual teams’ practice,

Here is where and when your team will practice on Monday August 3rd

Jr Mite (2nd & 3rd Grade Generally): 5:30 South Side of Summit Elementary School. Coach Mike Jenkins

Mitey Mite (4th Grade Generally): 4:45 Forrester Acres We have enough players to make 2 teams, so we will be drafting on the first day of practice see draft details below.

How the draft works, all players will come together on the first day of practice and the 2 coaching staffs will run drill with the players.  After the allotted time for practice players will leave. Coach will sit down together, with the SVYF Director and our WFFL Commissioner. The teams are divided as evenly as possible. When we split teams there is no guarantee that you will be with your friend or a certain coach, or even on the same team as last year. However, we have great coaches for every team, and this is a great opportunity to learn and grow and make new friends. Because we have 2 team drafting, we will stager them just a bit.

Mitey Mite: Meet at Forrester Acres Football Field on Monday Aug. 3rd at 4:45pm. We will get you weighed in and a name tag and split you into 2 groups. Then you will spend 30-40 min with each coaching staff.

Then you will spend 45 min with each coaching staff.

We practice at the local Schools They have more policies in place that they have to follow, They have requested that we do not have parents gather to watch practice.

Also remember that we are at their fields, and therefor please pick up all your trash and don’t leave the fields messy.  We apricate them letting us practice there and if we are disrespectful we could lose the privilege of using their fields.

 

During these very hot practices hydration will be key.  Please read the attached file to help in making sure your athlete is well hydrated.

 

Also there is a Heads up Concussion Fact Sheet that you should read. Concussions are the main issue giving football a bad rap.  Please learn as much as you can. Education ourselves helps in keeping this great sport going.

 

One of the things that has come out this year and is offered by one of our helmet suppliers is the Schutt Splash Shield.  Check out the attached flyer.

 

If you have any questions about the next few days please call or text me at 435-994-0059

Games: All Games are played on Saturdays & for this year all regular season games will be played in our health district. That will consist of Brigham City, Bear River, Mountain Crest, Ridgeline, Logan, Green Canyon, and New this year Preston, along with ourselves.

Covid Protocols:  We are still finalizing what will be required as protocols for practices and game days. However, I do know that we will need to Symptom Check all players and coaches at practice.  I will need a parent volunteer (we are trying to stay away from coaches) who can do that for each team.  We will provide the check list and the thermometer that will be needed. If you are interested in helping with this, please contact me at 435-994-0059. At practice and on game day no matter where you play. The very first thing you must do when you get to the field is to go find the designated temp station/person and get temp checked.  If you do not do this first thing, you risk your temperature rising due to heat and movement. If at any point your temperature registers 100.4 or above your will not be allowed to participate that day.  And you don’t get a second chance.  Once we finalize our protocols this week, I will get them out to you.

Team Mom/Dad: We need someone who will be the Team Parent and oversee certain aspects of the season. If you are interested in this, please contact Amanda Schaaf at 435-757-8879

Thanks!

MAY 19,2020

As you are aware it is time to start registering for football, however with things the way they are, we have been on hold. This past week the WFFL held a directors meeting and discussed all possibilities moving forward. Of course, we are hoping and planning for the best-case scenario but know that there are many factors that will be taken into consideration as we move forward.

 

As of right now we will plan on a season.  The exact dates are still under consideration.  If things go as normal, practice would start August 3rd. However, there are many variations of a schedule based on where we as a state are in the COVID-19 pandemic. The exact start dates will be determined at a future time as we get closer.

 

SVYF’s plan is to start registration on June 2 (following another WFFL Director meeting on June 1.) registration will run from June 2 to June 30. During this time, you can register your player and submit all necessary documents through our website. However, no money will be collected. If things continue to go as planned, we will do equipment check out the week before practice starts and collect money at that time.

 

We know that there might be some hesitation in registering your player at this time. This could be due to the fact of the virus, or due to financial hardship etc.  We want to let you know that we will follow all the state mandated and suggested precautions.  SVYF is part of the WFFL and a lot of the organizations are City ran, which means we will be following things very strict. We also want you to know that we will look at fundraiser option to help offset costs.

Thanks for your understanding and patients at this unusual time.

 

 

If you are interested in coaching, even if you have coached in the past, please reach out to me and let me know where you are for this season.  I like having coaches return and coach, but also know that sometimes circumstances need to be looked at. We as a board will also evaluate each age group/team/coaches to try to have the best situation. Thanks in advance to all who volunteer there countless hours to help our football players have a positive experience.

 

Last year we lost several of our board members do to their sons moving to high school, and we are looking for people who are willing to join our board. As a board member you help with all aspects of our season, i.e.… registration, equipment checks out, fields, practices, coach, team and parent communication, Game Day, equipment check in and all other aspects of the season.  It is lots of fun, but it is a time commitment and because of that you do get your player registration fee waived.  I am looking for a couple people who are hard workers, team players and love football.  If you are interested, please let me know. That being said, this will be my final year as the Director. If you are interested in being the Director of SVYF please let me know.  Obviously just because you want to be on the board or the director does not mean that it automatic. We as a will look at all candidates and choose accordingly.
