Freshman football is a great experience. Young people are challenged as never before. A successful season involves learning, growing, working, winning and having fun. We strive to develop individuals and team while keeping football in the proper, supportive relationship to school and family.
Weight/speed training benefits rising freshmen planning on playing football. Prospective freshman football players are encouraged to attend voluntary spring & summer sessions in the Madison weight room. Spring sessions run from 3:15 to 4:30 PM on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Fridays thru the end of the school year. Summer sessions will run from 9 to 10:30 AM on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays. Parents & students must read and sign the WEIGHT ROOM WAIVER found at Warhawk Sports.org .
A voluntary FRESHMAN FOOTBALL TRANSITION CAMP is scheduled for June 26 - 29 at Waters Field. Details are found on page 12 of the 2017 Vienna Summer Camp Guide: www.viennava.gov/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/3504.
Prospective players are required to attend all practices starting August 2. Practices are M-F with two Saturday morning sessions. We will start on the field at 6:30 AM and go to noon. Players should be dropped off no later than 6:10 (earlier if they need to see a trainer) so they can dress & move to the field on time. Players will have one mid-morning break to eat a light meal if sent with them. Practices will move to 3:15 – 6:00 PM once school starts. We will have two scrimmages and eight games, most on Thursday evening at 5:45. The actual schedule will be posted on our website as soon as it is known. Extensive paperwork (physicals, waivers, participation policies, concussion orientations, etc.) must be completed and submitted before players can practice; details will be provided on our website as soon as 2017-2018 forms are available. Included in this requirement is a mandatory physical (completed after May 1, 2017) on the current Virginia High School League form. Low-cost physicals will be offered at Madison the evening of May 17th.
We will offer a Spirit Pack (cost approximately $110.00) for players’ practice jerseys, pants, girdles, shirts and shorts. It should be preordered to insure players are ready to practice on August 2. More detailed information will be provided in July. Madison provides a locker (player provides a combination lock) and all football equipment, except shoes. Football shoes should be predominantly black with screw-in (not molded rubber) cleats.
Future information on team activities will be sent to those who complete the form found at: Madison Freshman Football Player & Family Information Sheet.
