New Facebook Group for BHS Football Families & Other Announcements


If you are a Facebook user, please join the new Facebook group I have created in order to share BHS Football announcements and news.  Click on this Link to find the group on Facebook and send a request to join: 
I will still send emails to you, but thought this would be a good platform to make sure everyone is getting information in a timely manner along with our online calendar .  We can also use the Facebook page for those who might want to link up with other parents to arrange ride-shares for practices and tryouts.   
And if you know of any football parents who are not receiving emails from me, please ask them to send me an email to:  battlefield.bobcat.moms@gmail.com
REMINDERS:
IMPORTANT PARENT MEETING - Thursday 7/11 at 7:00pm in the BHS Large Cafeteria - For parents of any student trying out for football (ALL grades).  Coach will provide Info about the pre-season schedule, Team Camp, and for rising JR. / SR. parents he will talk about Recruiting.  
 
Training resumes on TUESDAY 7/9 from 5-7pm and will continue until the start of the season
Equipment Fittings:  If your son missed the helmet and shoulder pad fitting time the week before last, Coach has scheduled more time for fittings this coming Wednesday, July 10th during the workout session.  If he sends me another update about this tomorrow, I'll pass it along. 
 
In Person Concussion Training: 9th grade students and students new to PWC and/or students who have never taken an in-person High school concussion training session, the next session at Battlefield HS is Monday, July 29, 2019 - 7 p.m.  If you have questions about concussion training, more info can be found on the PWCS.edu website:  https://pwcs.edu/cms/One.aspx?portalId=340225&pageId=801110
Online Concussion Training:  For the upperclassmen players who have already done the in-person concussion training last year, they will still need to re-new their concussion training certificate by completing the online session prior to tryouts. They must complete the online session every year.  FYI - apparently the PWCS Online Concussion training portal has not gone live yet, because an error message comes up when clicking on the link.  I will inquire with our AD to find out when the online portal will be up and running.   
Sports Physicals:  The athletic training, Ms. Nelson, will be collecting sports physicals on July 31st from 2:00 until 6:00pm in the main lobby of the school.  There is a clearance form players must complete when they turn in their physicals and online concussion completion certificates (for those who did the "in-person" session, the trainer should already have your completion certificate).  If you have questions about sports physicals, please let me know. 
 
Please sign up for the TEAM CAMP this week!!  - Camp is for all grades!!  - July 22 - 25 (M/Tu/W/Th), from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m.  at Westfield High School in Chantilly, VA.  Coach will talk more about camp at the parent meeting on Thursday. This is a non-contact camp.  I think that they will only be wearing helmets, shirts/shorts, & cleats. There will be no hitting.  According to the football calendar attached to this email, there will be equipment handouts this week so that they will have a helmet for camp.  Sign Up for the Camp online & pay $100 fee online by visiting the new BHS football website: CAMP SIGN-UPS  
If you would like to pay by check, your son can turn the form & check in to Coach G during one of the workout sessions.
