2012 Football Off-Season Informational Meeting

Report
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.

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
fall??
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

Mondays and Thursdays from 6:00-7:30 pm
We are aware of vacations and work

Helmets and shoulder pads.
• The cost is $60.00 per player. The camp will
consist of practice time and 7 on 7 time each day
with Smyrna High School Staff. This is a great
opportunity to show the coaches what you can
do and prepare for the upcoming season.
Positive Training Team Camp
• Other teams will be invited and have an
opportunity to attend.
• We moved to a weekly format so that we can
accommodate more players. We know that
vacations will be taken so if you go away you only
miss one day not the entire camp.
• Equipment handout for the Positive Training
Team Camp will be after Lifting on June 18th for
those players that are not attending the NFL
Team camp.
Pre-Season Practice
• Practice officially starts August 15th
• We need the players here so scheduling
vacations before the 15th is very helpful in
avoiding conflicts.
• I will have a Pre-Season Schedule prepared
over the summer and sent out to all the
players as soon as it is finalized.
Drive One for your school
• Date: This Saturday April 21st from 10-1 pm at the
High School
• If you test drive a Ford vehicle at this time they
will donate $20.00 to our Smyrna Athletic
Boosters.
• If you are available we as a football program can
show support by participating in this event.
• All you have to do is test drive a vehicle that’s it!!
Smyrna Athletic Boosters
• I am always looking for parents who may be interested
in helping the program out in different ways.
• We need help behind the scenes sometimes and
parents have always been helpful.
• One great way to get involved is to be an active
participant in our Athletic Boosters.
• There is a meeting tonight after this meeting in the
cafeteria.
• I would highly encourage you to attend and become a
part of the booster club.
• Please contact me if you are interested in helping in
other ways.
Contact and Communication
• In the world today with all of the technology
available to us it is very frustrating as a coach
when we do not find out about something until
the last minute or we can’t reach a player.
