SUMMER WRAP-UP

Equipment Fundraising Campaign (June 1 - July 4)

Our campaign was a success. We raised about $575 towards purchasing new shoulder pads.

Thank you to everyone who helped out!!! (With a special Tiger shout-out to the Corro family.)

 

Summer Workouts I (June 16 - June 25)

The first session of Summer Workouts brought almost 20 players out and was a great time.

We worked on conditioning, basic skills, safety, and agility, and made great progress.

 

Summer Camp - Grades 3rd - 8th

Due to an unforseen scheduling change, we ad to cancel Tiger Camp this year.

Look for 2016 dates to be posted in February or March and make plans to attend!

 

Summer Workouts II (July 7 - July 23)

Our second summer session brought out about 25 players and we got to work on more football-based

fundamentals, including offensive skills, blocking, tackling, and even ran some basic plays.

 

Leadership Week / Family Night (July 27 - July 31)

2015 Leadership Week focused on three projects: building and reparing the flower boxes by the entrance to our field, getting rid of our horrendously ugly "poles", and a general clean-up of our storage area and the grounds around our field. We had great success with the Flower Boxes and Clean-Up, but geesh! those poles are sunk super-deep and are still there!

"Great time spent with a lot of kids who have tremendously positive attitudes. Proud of this group." - Coach Holston


Training Camp (Aug 3 - Aug 14)

2015 Training Camp got off to a rocky start with a massive rescheduling fiasco. However, once the team got on the field, they accomplished everything they set out to do.

"Championships are not given at the end of the season. They are earned in the off-season." - Coach Holston

 

Hollywood 7-on-7 Tournament (Aug 15)

We had a good showing at the tournament, but did not place.

Champions: Varsity - Westside Catholic Cardinals & JV - Marshall Warriors
