Weather Reminder

Parents-

With the potential for scattered thunderstorms this time of year, please keep in mind that we will end practice when Thunder/lightning are in the area. A message will be sent if that occurs but we would need you all to return to HJMS as quickly as possible to pick up you child. 

Always keep an eye on the website for weather related messages.

Practice Fields

This year we have been able to secure Henry James Middle School for out practices prior to school starting.  This allows for better parking and more space for the teams to spread out.

 

The first few weeks of practice will be at HJMS.

2015 Pre-season Practice Info

Hello Football Families,

My name is Mike Bruno,  VP of Football for Simsbury Youth Football.  I’d like to take a moment to welcome those who have joined our program for the first time, and welcome back those families who have been a part of our program in the past. 

Monday, August 3rd  is quickly approaching.  I wanted to touch base regarding a few items prior to the first practice:

  1. Equipment pick up is this Saturday 8/1.  The schedule for pick up is posted on our site, please refer to it to find your team's pickup time.
  2. For the month of August, until school starts, practices will be held M, Tu, W, Th nights at Henry James Middle School from 5:30 to 8:00 (Mighty Mites will practice from 5:30-7:30).  Once school starts we will be holding practices at Weatogue Field, and the schedule is up to each team's Head Coach.  Mighty Mites will only practice two nights a week once school starts.
  3. Please try to arrive at practice by 5:15 if possible.  The first week can be crazy with paperwork, equipment, etc., and our goal is to begin practice at 5:30.  
  4. Please have your child do some activity daily (running, stretching ) this week in preparation for next week.
  5. Bring a jug of water for practice.  Also, please have your child drink plenty of water both before and after practice.  
  6. Be sure your child eats something prior to practice.  A large meal at 5 pm is not ideal, but a substantial snack will get them through the evening.  Think protein, carbohydrate combos.
  7. The first 5 days of practice are non-contact.  Shorts and t-shirts are appropriate for the first 5 days of practice.  If you will not be at practice the first week, the player will still be required to complete 5 days of non-contact upon their return.  The players will follow the following schedule for adding equipment:

Days 1 and 2:  helmets only

Days 3, 4 and 5:  helmets and shoulder pads

Day 6 forward:  full equipment

I look forward to seeing everyone on Monday.  Please be sure to check the website and email in case of cancelations due to weather.  Don’t forget your completed paperwork!  Do not hesitate to contact myself or any other Board Member with any questions.

Simsbury Youth Football and Cheer Joins CTYFL Conference!!!!

Dear Simsbury Youth Football and Cheer Families,

Each year the parent and community volunteers that that make up our program’s Board of Directors evaluate numerous aspects of our program in order to provide the best possible football and cheer experience for our children. These volunteers evaluate safety programs and procedures, practice and game field locations, coaching applicants and training, and equipment and uniforms, to name just a few. One of the most important evaluations completed annually is a review of the Conference in which our teams compete. 

In order to continue to provide the best possible football and cheer experience for our program participants and our families, the Board has decided to move the program to a conference with an age based approach to team divisions. This is similar to the approach taken by Little League baseball and other youth sports, where athletes of the same age compete together, regardless of grade. For the upcoming 2015 (and future) football seasons, the Trojans will be playing in the Connecticut Youth Football League (CTYFL). 

The links below will provide you with the official press release regarding the move as well as CTYFL's Bylaws for you to review.

As always, we would like to hear any questions or feedback that you might have. Please feel free to leave us a message on our website under the feedback tab, or contact any of the board members.
