A regular season game schedule will be provided as soon as it is available to us from TNYFL (the league that we play within). This is normally after the Jamboree game which is held in early August. This allows time for all communities in the program to place their teams.
Please be aware that dates are always subject to change during the season. There is usually a game every Saturday with 4 games played at our home site & 4 being played away. Our home games are played at Mundy Memorial Park.
Playoffs begin at the end of the regular season. Please inform your coach if you will not be able to attend a game.
We play communities outside of Wilson County so please make note that you will have practices and games during Wilson County Schools October fall intersession/break.
Practices & Evaluations
During the first two weeks, July 16 to July 27, football practice will be held Monday – Friday from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. The first two weeks are used as an evaluation period to place participants on the same level teams.
Beginning July 30th football practice will be held every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm throughout the entire season unless your coach tells you otherwise.
The first day of practice (July 16th) will be t-shirt & shorts only. No other equipment is needed. On the second day (July 17th) of practice (Tuesday) the helmet will be added. On the third day (July 18th), all football players will go into full pads so bring all your equipment to practice.
We spend the first two weeks observing and evaluating the basic skills of each player. Most age groups will be broken into several smaller groups within the first few days to allow for better observation. Several coaches will be observing the players during this time. Decisions as to what team your child will be assigned to in his or her age group is based on athletic ability, size, experience and desire to play. This process allows for children to play against other children with their same ability, size and experience level. By the end of the two weeks, your child will be assigned to a permanent team.
With this procedure we cannot guarantee that your child will be playing on a team with his friends & family or his favorite coaches. Please be patient as the evaluation process takes place and if you have any questions or concerns, we ask that you talk with the head coach working with your child.
For all Participants
Football & Cheerleading are TEAM SPORTS! Absences make planning difficult for coaches and your team. Be at practices & games on time! Special commitments must be brought to the attention of your head coach. Everyone understands situations do arise that will cause your child to miss practice or games but please be sure to inform your head coach if you will not be able to attend.
All participants are responsible for arranging their own transportation to and from practices and games. Inform your coach of any transportation problems. If a parent or guardian will not be staying with your child at a practice or game please inform the coach and make sure they have a way to contact you in case of an emergency. PARENTS MUST PICK UP THEIR CHILDREN PROMPTLY AT THE END OF PRACTICES OR GAMES!!
