Freshmen vs. Brawley
at Brawley HS
Directions to Field
Desert Valley High School Athletic Field
Freshmen Arrival at SRHS
Bus Departure from SRHS
It will be HOT! Very hot. With that in mind we've pushed the start time back from 5 pm to 6 pm. There will be plenty of ice water available on the bus ride to Brawley and at the field. Referees have been instructed to take additional heat time outs (not charged) to either team, in addition to the normal allotment of time outs.
A generous parent has donated towels which we will immerse in ice water to help players cool off. I've seen several volunteers offering pop-ups for shade. When our JV & Varsity traveled to Brawley last year they provided an air-conditioned room for pre-game, half time and post game to change our of football gear.
Brawley will have a trainer and EMT on-site. All of our coaches are Heat Illness Prevention certified through NFHS. I invite you to take a look at the the signs and symptoms of heat illness to familiarize yourself with what we as coaches are looking for to prevent heat stroke or exhaustion.
Post Game Meal
The team will stop at Farmer Boys (1532 Cruickshank Drive, El Centro, CA 92243) after the game for a meal. Parents are welcome to join them there. All players and coaches meals will be paid for by our SR Football Booster Club through your generous donations.
Arrival Time in Scripps Ranch
JV/Freshmen Head Coach Jeff Theilacker will send a message to parents when the team hits the road, headed back to San Diego to give you an estimated time of arrival Thursday night.
