The Eagles will participate (freshman, jv, and varsity) in the annual LJAL Four Way Scrimmage this coming Saturday August 17th at the Bentley Football Complex beginning at 10:00 am. Your son’s coach will let you know when he needs to be there for warm ups. The Eagles will scrimmage each of the other 3 Livonia Units (Blue Jays, Falcons, and Orioles). The Scrimmage will last until about 12:45 – 1:00 pm.
We are now through (for those that practiced 3 days this week) the conditioning phase of practice. If your son missed any of the practices this past week, he will still need to condition (must condition for 3 days before contact). His Football Helmet should be snug (and even a little uncomfortable) in order for it to protect him properly. If you feel that it is to tight (or loose) please have him come to the POD (before or after practice) for us to take a second look. There are adjustments (with air bladders) in his helmet that can be made.
Make up date is Monday July 29th: Football Equipment will be handed out at Marshall Elementary School (on Curtis west of Farmington) this Monday from 6:00 to 7:00pm. If you are unable to make this Monday, equipment will be handed out at the first practice that you attend at the POD. Flag Football uniform & equipment will be handed out at the Bentley Field during the first week of practice.
The annual tournament will be this coming Sunday at August 18th at the Bentley Football Field. The first game begins at 9:00 am with your Eagles –vs- Orioles. The second game is at 11:00 am with the Blue Jays –vs- Falcons….Consolation game is at 1:00 pm, with the Championship game beginning at 3:00 pm. Come out and support your team !!!
