Calling all boys and girls who love football: tryouts are this Friday after school. Please come and join us out on the field for an hour and a half to two hours of tryouts. It is a great way to show off your athleticism, stay healthy and fit, and make new friends in the process. Remember, this is a tryout for both genders, so all are welcome. Hope to see you out on the field.
Mr. Rick, the head flag football coach at Stacey Middle School, and Mr. Cota, the assistant flag football coach, have a few expectations for the new incoming flag football players. All players must be respectful, good students, competitive, athletic, and have good sportsmanship. To be on the team, you must be able to throw and catch a football and must have speed.
However, the flag football team will be combined this year because Warner and Johnson don’t have enough girls for their flag football team. Mr. Rick and Mr. Cota are hoping to take on 21 total girls and boys this year.
If you make the team, practices will be Tuesdays and Thursdays for an hour and a half. Practices will mostly consist of throwing, and catching drills, defensive drills, and many plays you will have to remember. Mr. Rick and Mr. Cota’s goals this year is to be undefeated, to win the championship, and to make many improvements.
If you have any questions about the team or the tryouts, you can find Mr. Rick in A1.
