2017 Preseason Practice Schedule

Posted Thursday, July 27, 2017 by Paul Rorke

Parents please feel free to forward this email to any parents who have a son planning to play this season. Some of the players who have been participating in summer workouts and camps have yet to have a parent register on our website and will not receive this email.


Dear Football Candidate,

As you know, our season is quickly approaching and by the time you receive this letter summer practice will be less than three weeks away. All players are expected to come to practice in top physical shape.

All practice times and locations will be posted on our website for your reference.www.syobravesfootball.com

The Varsity, JV season officially begins Wednesday 8/16/17.


All physicals must be completed by your doctor, on the school district form. All players must see the nurses for clearances after your doctor’s physical, and prior to practicing. The nurses will only be available for clearances on Tuesday 8/15/17 from 7am -11am:

VARSITY 7:00 am - 8:00 am JV 8:00 am – 9:00am

Players are expected to turn in the necessary paperwork listed below after nurse clearance is completed. Players should bring all paperwork to room A18.

PARENT MEETING  Our staff will meet all Varsity and Junior Varsity parents outside the main gym on Thursday 8/17 @ 7:00 pm. The purpose of the meeting is to introduce the football coaching staff, review our practice schedule, and discuss team regulations. It is essential that each player have a parent or guardian present at this meeting.

Players who miss practice or have incomplete paperwork will be ineligible for scrimmages and games.

Our first impression of players will be one based on readiness. We will see first that you are on time and that you have the items listed below. This tells us that you have taken care of the details and that you are interested in playing football. Make a good first impression. Come into camp physically and mentally prepared to play.


Coach Rorke
