2012 Football Off-Season Informational Meeting

2012 Football Off-Season
Informational Meeting
Why are we meeting?
• There are a lot of things scheduled in the next
couple of months designed to better prepare
our team and your player for the 2012 season.
• We have a large number of players
participating in spring sports that we do not
have contact with to get them information.
• We also have a large number of players who
are unaccounted for this spring??
Why are we meeting?
• We need a commitment from the players and
parents to help get the students where they
need to be.
• We also have a number of students who are
working. We want to get the schedules out
early so they can adjust their work schedules
to be available.
Why are we meeting?
• Nothing is mandatory, however, it definitely
makes a positive impact on the coaches when
we see players being committed in the
offseason and at certain events.
Why are we meeting?

With Specific Individual Questions
Spring/Summer BFS
• Currently we have BFS running after school on
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday from 3:00-4:15.
• The number of football players that are lifting is
very low for two reasons.
• Good Reason- a number of players are playing
spring sports
• Bad Reason-players are choosing to not workout
and expect to be better football players in the
Spring/Summer BFS
• If your player has not made the Spring BFS and
they are not playing a spring sport, We Want
Them in the Weight Room!!
• I have been involved with the Football program at
Smyrna in some way for the past 22 years.
• There is a direct correlation with the commitment
from our players in the weight room and how
well those same players do on the field.
• All of the players that earned post season honors
last year were committed to the weight room!!
Spring/Summer BFS
Summer lifting will start June 18th
We will be lifting two days a week
Mondays and Thursdays from 6:00-7:30 pm
We are aware of vacations and work

opportunity to attend.

Team Camp will be after Lifting on June 18th for
those players that are not attending the NFL
Team camp.

vacations before the 15th is very helpful in
avoiding conflicts.

over the summer and sent out to all the
players as soon as it is finalized.
