Fun 6th Grade Spring Football Season

2021 Spring Football 6th Grade Verona Wildcats

6th Grade Wildcats,

It was a very fun crazy, shortened, alternate Spring 6th Grade Football Season!  On behalf of the Coaches, it was fun to watch a lot of new players come out and play this great game of football.  The kids did a great job all season of improving, working hard in practice, getting to know new teammates and competing.  Since I did not get to last night at the post-game festivities:

-Thank you to all the parents for getting all of your players there to practices (especially the jam-packed pre-season out at Keva), the Gaesames and nice and early for warm-ups so we could be ready to go. Thank you for your patience in trying to get everything figured out for the alternate season, fall should be a well oiled machine and hopefully more back to "normal"...

-Thank you to all of the Coaches:  Brett Wepking, Jay Genin, Jeff Jagla, Mike Weisensel, Mike Lambe, Pete Stremlow & Tom Jonjak for all of the time working with these kids, teaching them the fundamentals and getting them ready to play.

-Thank to Amber Nelson for all of her work in organizing the team activities and volunteers

-Thank you to all of  the family members for helping with Game days, field markers, scoreboard, etc.

-Thank you to the "team photographer" Erin Blodgett (see attached)

-Thank you to our last minute "Field Striping Crew" of Jeff Jagla, Shane Grady, Tom Jonjak & Mike Lambe who without them the last game doesn't happen, in learning how to paint a field with the sun going down the night before yesterdays game!  (just glad the rain did not wash it away...)

We have game film that we will try and get posted and out to everyone so stay tuned.

Equipment Return - stay tuned for day/time to return all of your players equipment (Helmet, shoulder pads, black practice jersey, black game jersey, orange game jersey)

Again, it was a lot of fun with the team this season.  Happy early Mother's Day to all of the Moms!  Thank you for the opportunity to Coach all of these players and we look forward to seeing all of them and more back for the Fall Football season!

Practice tonight 5/4 5-7pm, Game Thursday K-Wing

Reminder last 6th Grade Spring Football Practice tonight 5/4 from 5-7pm at Connor Field.

Thursday's game is the last game and has been moved to the K-Wing Field (next to the old H.S.).  It looks like we will need to re-paint the lines for that field for our game (especially with all that rain yesterday).  If anyone would be able to help with that let me know.

***Please let me know if your player can't make tonight's practice and/or the game on Thursday***

It has been a fun Spring season with the kids and we are looking forward to finishing strong.

Thank you.

Game @ Lodi tomorrow morning 4/17

Gameday tomorrow @ Lodi H.S. - Please arrive so your player is ready to go by 8:15am.  Game start is 9:00 am


We can enter on the SE end closest to the tennis courts and will warm-up on the field as we are the first game.


Lodi requirements:  Masks are still required and they are asking 4 (or 8 if a split family) spectators per player.  Should not be an issue with 34 players on the team and not everyone using their 4 or 8.  Turf rules are the same as Verona's turf rules.


Jerseys - we will go with the BLACK jerseys again.


If you have not already, please let me know if your player is unable to make it tomorrow (text to 608-347-3238)


Go Wildcats and looking forward to continuing to improve out on the field and have some fun (in a slightly more dry environment)!

Jerseys for Saturday:  As of now BOTH TEAMS will be wearing the BLACK GAME JERSEYS

Gear/Equipment:  Please make sure your player has their mouthguard & mask in addition to their helmet, shoulder pads, football pants and cleat - as well as a water bottle.

Game-day Volunteers:  We need volunteers on game-day to run the chains, 1st down marker, Scoreboard/timekeeper, Video, etc.  Amber will be sending out a Sign-up genius for this so be on the look-out.  For those not familiar, these are great ways to get a little closer to the game.

Thanks for getting your players to all of the practices so far and looking forward to competing on Saturday!
