Football Practices
This is a letter from the City sent directly to Mary Margaret Taylor, Exec. Dir. PSA

Please communicate to your respective programs that football practices
are restricted to the sites identified by the City of Plano for
football. This includes "pre-season" training of any manner!

Apparently, there are coaches that feel "speed," or "agility," or
"skills" type of practices may be conducted at any park site so long as the team is not running plays or blocking or tackling, etc. This
definition of "practice" is clearly unacceptable.

The City of Plano and the local youth sports organizations have had a
long standing agreement to allow football to practicing early on game
fields. This is due to the nature of organizing and teaching football in addition to issues of supervision.

However, City staff for the past couple of years has routinely found
football practices at other athletic-oriented park sites. When
confronted, the coaches say, "We aren't practicing. We are working on

That is the exact comment heard by City Staff repeatedly this year from local football teams that were found practicing at inappropriate park sites.

If the program of allowing early football practices is to continue at
the City's park sites, it is paramount for the local youth sports
organizations to control the actions of these teams. If the teams choose not to comply, then it may become necessary for the City to end the early practice agreement in future seasons.

Currently, Plano Sports Authority football is allowed to practice during daylight hours at Jack Carter Park. The Plano Family YMCA sponsored league is allowed to practice at Hoblitzelle Park and Carpenter Park's two football fields during daylight hours. The "early practice" phase of the football season ends Thursday, September 2.

Football practices may resume at identified locations on Tuesdays and Thursdays only, effective September 7. Fields are closed on Mondays and Fridays. Game days are Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Teams that feel they must practice more than Tuesday and Thursday must
find locations other than the City's athletic-oriented park sites, such as the City's neighborhood park sites (I have attached a list of these sited to this e-mail). The park sites that football may not practice at are: Old Shepard's Place, Cheyenne, Carpenter (other than Fields N & O), Russell Creek, High Point, Horseshoe, Harrington, McCreary, Schell (other than the outfield of ballfield #5), Enfield, the Youth Ball Park, and Heritage Yards.

Local football teams that choose not to play in the PSA or YMCA leagues, and as such are not allocated game fields, must find locations to practice other than the athletic-oriented park sites. In addition to the list above, Jack Carter and Hoblitzelle are also not available to these teams.

As always, the City appreciates the support and cooperation of the youth sports groups. Hopefully, the youth sports groups will take action against coaches (suspension?) that fail to adhere to the City's
ordinances, park rules and agreements between the City and the football organizations. If there are any questions, please contact your football director, John Blessing.
