Farmington Valley Football Camp with Coach Steve Petrella
by posted 03/28/2014

At Farmington Valley Football Camp your athlete will be taught the key skills and techniques of a successful football player in a non-contact environment.  Our camp includes small group instruction at each position on both offense and defense. The small group approach will help each player learn key skills that will make them a better football player. Our camp also focuses on other aspects of football such as leadership, teamwork, and hard work.

Week of June 30th – Kids entering grades 6-8

Week of July 14th – Kids entering grades 3-5

“I am excited to offer this camp to youth players because I believe we will provide players, of any level, more confidence at their position. I have recruited two highly experienced, college players (former Simsbury High School football players), Christian Kaljulaid and Christian Martinez. They are hardworking, positive role models, and I believe we can instill in your athlete the values that football teaches: Hard work, Teamwork, and Commitment."

Hope to see you on the field!

-Coach Petrella

SHS Weight Room Renovation
by posted 03/18/2014
Dear Parents, Alumni, and Friends,
Today, I forward to you a major initiative to improve our Football Program.   I believe improvement in strength and conditioning is the single most important step in creating a competitive advantage to our program.  It builds teamwork, pride, and spirit and helps assure not just healthier, but safer student athletes. Speed, power, and strength is the foundation which we need  for capturing another Division I title and making it back to states.   For some time, the Gridiron Club and I have been preparing a project to upgrade and refit our aging, inadequate weight room.  The project before you was conceived with the help of Evan Gross ’07, our Certified Strength Coach, and has the full support of Athletic Director Dane Street.  With your help, this state-of-the-art facility is planned to be in place as early as this summer!  The details of the plan are found in the attached document.  Please help to make this exciting project a reality for our student athletes.

The Simsbury Gridiron Club, in a partnership with Simsbury High School and the Simsbury 
High School Athletic Department, has set an ambitious, but reasonable fund raising goal of 
This amount will ensure that our student-athletes have the strength and fitness training 
equipment needed for success in their various sports. Your donation, of any amount, will help us 
achieve this goal, and will be deeply appreciated by past, current and future students participating in 
many of the various sports offered at Simsbury High. Meeting our goal will allow us to consolidate our 
strength program under Assistant Coach and Certified Fitness Trainer, Evan Gross, and will minimize 
the need for students to train in costly outside locations. All gifts will be recognized when the facility is 
completed. Gifts are tax deductible as Simsbury Gridiron is a 501(c)3 organization (Federal I.D. 
number 06-1613244). Please consider a donation via our website,, or by 
mail to Simsbury Gridiron, PO Box 324, Simsbury, CT, 06070 (please see attached donation form 
available with this letter). Our fundraising campaign concludes on April 15, 2014. Our goal for 
completing the new strength and conditioning facility is June 15, 2014.

Thank you
