Mandatory Spring Football Starts Monday, May 6, 2024
Spring Football is three weeks of CIF-sanctioned football practice, without helmets and pads. It is regular practice with our entire coaching staff and the entire team. It isn't an AAU club activity, every high school in the state has spring football. Unlike our open/optional workouts, spring football is mandatory. All freshmen and JV spring sports will be done by the time we start. Some varsity team will be in the playoffs (baseball, track, volleyball, badminton). Team members will be expected to check-in, attend meetings and view practices when available. As soon as their respective sport is done, full participation in Spring Football is mandatory
DATES (Tentative & Subject to Change)
Spring Football 2024 starts on Monday, May 6th and ends on May 24th. We practice Monday thru Friday, starting in 6th period and continuing on afterschool. The tentative times are listed on the team calendar, but are subject to change.
ALL FOOTBALL PLAYERS ARE EXPECTED. PARTICIPATION IS MANDATORY. We only get 15 practices/opportunities between December and July with the entire team and staff together. If you believe you have a conflict with another sport, communicate with Coach Gardinera directly. However, wrestling, basketball and other off-season workouts and practices are not valid reasons to miss football. Again, if you think you have a conflict, speak to Coach G directly.
Spring football is vital. Changes to both our offense and defense are introduced, taught, and rep'd. Also, the competition for position begins. Missing any practices puts a player at a significant disadvantage and impacts the team dynamic in preparation for the fall. We also start assessing younger players for participation at the varsity level.
