Welcome to 6th Grade Wildcat Youth Football

6th Grade Wildcats,

 

Hello and Welcome to “Spring” Football for Wildcat Youth Football!  My name is Troy Blodgett and I will be the head coach for the 6th Grade team this year.  Joining me to help coach the team will be Jeff Jagla, Jeremiah Genin, Brett Wepking, David Nagrocki, Mike Lambe, & Pete Stremlow.  Others have expressed interest in helping as well so the more the better – you can never have enough coaches helping out in youth football.  We are excited to have a season and get the kids playing tackle football.  Here is some information and updates as we get started:

Practice:

  • First practice is scheduled for this Monday, 3/15 from 7:00-8:45pm at Keva (Middleton)
    • Weather for Monday right now is not looking great so we will send an update if things change
    • The initial schedule of practices leading up to our first game is listed below and subject to change:
  • Locations – for pre-season practices prior to grass fields being playable, we will be practicing at Keva (Middleton) outdoor turf and Verona Area High School Turf field.
  • Our schedule is crunched at the beginning of the season to get these boys ready for their first game (expected 4/10*).  There are a mandatory number of practices each individual player needs to get in before playing a scrimmage/game to get acclimated to the equipment and contact.  Once games start, we will settle in to 2-3 practices per week (we will let you know on days/locations as soon as we can)
  • Many of the initial practices will be walking through the fundamentals, how things work, and a lot of learning - taking plenty of breaks and have a lot of fun as well. 
  • Practice Equipment
    • The first two practices are with Helmets and shorts only (NO shoulder pads or football pants) – this is to get used to wearing a helmet and start to get conditioned
      • Mouth Guard – Please make sure they have a Mouth Guard starting with the first practice, preferably attached to their helmet facemask
      • Mask - Please make sure your player wears a mask to practice
    • The next 3 practices are “Shells only” (helmet, shoulder pads/black practice jersey and shorts (NO football pants))
    • After that we go full pads:  Helmets, shoulder pads/black practice jersey and football pants unless I make a specific note that we are only going “Shells” or Helmet and shorts which we will do from time to time if it gets warm or we are just doing a walk-through before a game
  • Please make an effort to have your player attend all of the practices but if you know of any dates where they will not be there, please let me know so we can plan accordingly:
  • Here is the schedule for the first couple weeks subject to change:
