There are still spots available on the Blake Middle School football team.
Students in the 7th and 8th grades can register by contacting Coach George Chung at email@example.com
Optional practice takes place next week with mandatory practice starting on August 27, a week before the start of school.
“The middle school football program goal is to prepare players to play at the high school level,” said Chung.
“It is a great venue for new players to experience contact football and for veterans to hone their current skills for the next level. Players will know what it means to work hard, prepare for a game, and play as part of a team,” he said.
Blake football players are invited to attend three skills and conditioning clinics to be held on August 22, 23 and 24 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on the Schilling Field turf area. Players are asked to wear shorts, a loose-fitting shirt, wear rubber (not metal) cleats, and bring plenty of water.
Mandatory team practices start on Monday, August 27 and continue Monday through Friday (with the exception of Labor Day) with games on Wednesdays.
The first game is scheduled for September 12 at Wellesley.
Players must also have a current health form filed with the school and need to take a mandatory concussion baseline test.
