Good Afternoon Parents. With the 8 inches of snow we received on Tuesday and the lack of any real melting going on since then, we are going to have to cancel the 1st-6th grade end of the year tournament. The fields are still covered with 4 inches of icy snow and are basically closed for the year now. All along, this tournament was an extra event we wanted to do for the kids, as it’s always fun to end the season with some type of tournament. We actually looked into potential indoor facilities, delaying the tournament a week, etc. but at the end of the day, nothing will work with temperatures forecasted to not even get above freezing from tomorrow evening through at least Wednesday. Almost all the winter sports are starting next week or have started already. This means the 2020 Jr. Wolfpack Football Season is officially over.
We hoped you had a great season. We tried to make it as enjoyable as possible and give these kids some type of normalcy. It was hard to pull all this together as this was very different from a regular season, but I wanted to thank everyone involved. Thank you to the parents for trusting us to take care of your kids on the football field during this crazy time.
A couple of housekeeping items. We have awesome hats for all the kids. For anyone who didn’t get a hat yet, Advanced Sportswear located at 1632 Hastings Ave in Newport will have the hats. Just walk in and let them know you are there to pick up a Jr. Wolfpack Football Hat. In regard to pictures, you will receive a personalized email from CLIX when the pictures are ready to be ordered.
We are also planning on having Spring Football Sessions again this next spring. These will be skill learning sessions that usually begin in early April and wrap up in early May, after the main winter sports season, and before spring sports really get going. We usually meet about 4-6 times and we teach a lot of drills and football specific work for our young athletes to become better football players. A lot more information will come later about spring football.
It’s always sad to see the Jr. Wolfpack Football Season come to an end. Plans are already underway for next season assuming everything is back to normal. I can’t wait to see everyone back on the field in the spring and in the fall for the 2021 Jr. Wolfpack Football Season. Thank you for your continued support for Jr. Wolfpack Football and if you ever need anything or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
