Hello, Raider Nation -
As we gear up for the Spring Season, the coaching staff wanted to share some updates for the team and league.
Coaching Staff - Thank you to Coach Chris Capalbo for volunteering to Asst Coach in the wake of the passing of Coach Mark DuBrock. The coaching staff has arranged for the Raiders' jerseys this season to feature an orange "MD" on the sleeve to honor Coach DuBrock.
Practices - The Raiders' flag practices will start Friday 4/16. The first practice will start a bit earlier so we can get jerseys and flags to each player. This will be changed on the website. The start time will be 5pm. Each practice after that will be starting at 5:15p and all practices will end at 6:30pm.
The coaches will be requiring the players to wear masks for practices. Yes, we are outdoors, but the level we practice at does not allow for social distancing and we want to keep all of our athletes and families safe.
Please make sure your Raider brings the following: Water; cleats; mask. Football gloves are optional, some kids love them...
Practices are currently scheduled to take place at the Montessori School. This may change to the field at my home. We have a large field that we can replicate our practice space on very easily.
Games - Flag games will commence on Saturday 4/17. Games will be played at Middlebrook between 3-6pm. We will send weekly emails and texts with game information.
Thank you all for allowing your athletes to participate with the Raiders this season. Please reach out with any questions or concerns you may have. If you have not already sent your mobile contact number to the coaches please do so we can build a team group text chain.
