    2023-2024 Football Information

                  Welcome to the 2023-24 school year and the 2023-24 LGMS football season. As we begin to prepare for our upcoming season, we want to provide you with important dates and information.


    This school year marks the first year that we will have 1 football team comprised of 7th and 8th grade student athletes. 


    Student athletes will be expected to participate in 5 days of heat acclimatization prior to being able to receive pads. Therefore, attendance is mandatory for those 5 days. Acclimation will take place on August 2nd-4th and August 7th-8th afterschool from 4:30 to 5:45pm on the practice field located on the side of our school. Athletes who do not participate in the 5 days of acclimation will NOT be able to tryout for this year's football team.


    Football try outs will take place immediately afterschool on August 9th and 11th -  4:30 - 6:00pm.

    *ALL players need to have their rides available promptly at the end of ALL practices!



    All players wanting to try out for football must have a current physical and all other paperwork completed and uploaded in DragonFly prior to August 2nd.  A handout will be provided for setting up a DragonFly account. Student athletes trying out must meet eligibility requirements in order to participate: Pass 5 out of the 6 classes from the most recently completed semester with a grade of 70 or higher, along with a cleared sports physical examination in order to be eligible to try out and play sports.


    As continued from last year, we will not provide water bottles for each player.  Players are required to bring their own water bottle to practice. We will have areas designated for players to fill their water bottles during each session. Each player will need to provide their own practice clothes for acclimation. Please wear only shorts and shirts that are white, blue, grey, or black (Wildcats shirts are preferred).


    If you have any questions regarding the information provided or the upcoming season, please reach out to one of us. We look forward to working with our student athletes this upcoming season.
