2012 Football Off-Season Informational Meeting
Why are we meeting? There are a lot of things scheduled in the next couple of months designed to better prepare our team and your player for the 2012 season. We have a large number of players participating in spring sports that we do not have contact with to get them information. We also have a large number of players who are unaccounted for this spring??
Why are we meeting? We need a commitment from the players and parents to help get the students where they need to be. We also have a number of students who are working. We want to get the schedules out early so they can adjust their work schedules to be available.
Why are we meeting? Nothing is mandatory, however, it definitely makes a positive impact on the coaches when we see players being committed in the offseason and at certain events.
Why are we meeting? Physicals Eligibility Spring and Summer BFS NFL Team Camp NUC Combine Positive Training Team Camp Pre-Season Practice Boosters
Physicals A FREE physical can be completed now in our wellness center You must be a member The form must be filled out before the physical is completed. The physical is good for the entire School year. It may not be free after this year?? All players need to have a physical to participate in Camps, Summer lifting, etc.
Eligibility Credits-2 Majors – The player must have a total of 5 credits which include 2 majors(Eng, Sci, SS, Math) from the school year to be eligible. Sophomore issues-Dr. Ed 4 ¾ credits – Be aware if your player is a sophomore – Passing 6 Classes(Eng, Math, Sci, SS, PE2 and Dr. Ed=4 ¾ credits) Summer School – students may gain additional credits in summer school – they must have a 60 or above to take the class in summer school Please Contact Coach Lloyd With Specific Individual Questions
Spring/Summer BFS Currently we have BFS running after school on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday from 3:00-4:15. The number of football players that are lifting is very low for two reasons. Good Reason- a number of players are playing spring sports Bad Reason-players are choosing to not workout and expect to be better football players in the fall??
Spring/Summer BFS If your player has not made the Spring BFS and they are not playing a spring sport, We Want Them in the Weight Room!! I have been involved with the Football program at Smyrna in some way for the past 22 years. There is a direct correlation with the commitment from our players in the weight room and how well those same players do on the field. All of the players that earned post season honors last year were committed to the weight room!!
Spring/Summer BFS Summer lifting will start June 18 th We will be lifting two days a week Mondays and Thursdays from 6:00-7:30 pm We are aware of vacations and work – This is why we are having the meeting – The later time allows for rides – We are only asking for 2 days for BFS This is more than just lifting, this is a time for Teambuilding, Speed and Strength
NFL Team Camp Dates June 4-7 th We will not be attending the 8 th due to the NUC Combine(Next Slide) Location Middletown HS Rides are the players responsibilities Cost Free
NFL Team Camp We need a minimum of 20 players The form which is in your packet must be turned into Coach Lloyd to be put on the list for equipment. You will be put on the list in the order I receive the forms. Forms must have – How are you getting to the camp? – Signature of parent and player in regards to equipment responsibilities
NFL Team Camp This camp is helmets and shoulder pads only We will handout equipment May 30 th to: – Returning Players who turn in form 4:30-5:00 – New Players who turn in forms 5:00-5:30 All players will be responsible for their equipment and will return all equipment issued in a timely manner.
NUC Combine National Underclassmen Combine Date June 8 th -10 th – Reason for not attending 8 th for the NFL Team Camp NUC Website-http://nationalunderclassmen.com Cost-will be reduced because Smyrna is hosting. Includes Recruiting Seminar, Combine for all grades and positions, 7 on 7 opportunity and OL/DL Trench warfare This is an awesome opportunity in OUR HOUSE!!
NUC Elite 100 Date June 15 th -17 th If selected as top 100 in the East for your position and grade you will be invited back for the Elite 100 the following week. Unbelievable opportunity to see who the best are in this area and in your positions.
Positive Training Team Camp This is replacing the team camp that was normally held at the end of July The camp will be held at Smyrna High School on Wednesday Nights Starting June 20 th from 6:00- 8:30 pm. Exception will be Thursday July 5 th. Helmets and shoulder pads. The cost is $60.00 per player. The camp will consist of practice time and 7 on 7 time each day with Smyrna High School Staff. This is a great opportunity to show the coaches what you can do and prepare for the upcoming season.
Positive Training Team Camp Other teams will be invited and have an opportunity to attend. We moved to a weekly format so that we can accommodate more players. We know that vacations will be taken so if you go away you only miss one day not the entire camp. Equipment handout for the Positive Training Team Camp will be after Lifting on June 18 th for those players that are not attending the NFL Team camp.
Pre-Season Practice Practice officially starts August 15 th We need the players here so scheduling vacations before the 15 th is very helpful in avoiding conflicts. I will have a Pre-Season Schedule prepared over the summer and sent out to all the players as soon as it is finalized.
Drive One for your school Date: This Saturday April 21 st from 10-1 pm at the High School If you test drive a Ford vehicle at this time they will donate $20.00 to our Smyrna Athletic Boosters. If you are available we as a football program can show support by participating in this event. All you have to do is test drive a vehicle thats it!!
Smyrna Athletic Boosters I am always looking for parents who may be interested in helping the program out in different ways. We need help behind the scenes sometimes and parents have always been helpful. One great way to get involved is to be an active participant in our Athletic Boosters. There is a meeting tonight after this meeting in the cafeteria. I would highly encourage you to attend and become a part of the booster club. Please contact me if you are interested in helping in other ways.
