Hello all Falcon Families!
It was great to see everyone yesterday at the high school. Can't believe the season starts this Saturday August 1st! I will be turning over all communications to the business managers and head coaches this week so keep an eye out for the initial communications from your team staff.
Until then, here is some additional important information regarding the season:

Location: Chaparral High School
27215 Nicolas Road Temecula, CA 92591
** I recommend teams carpooling as this event is chaotic and parking is limited. Expect to be there from 11am to 12pm, possibly 12:30pm. Your team staff will coordinate this.
What to wear: your spirit pack gray shirt, blue shorts and sandals. (or shoes that are easy to take on and off)
If any players are still missing paperwork as of this Friday, they will not be permitted to begin practice Saturday. NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will be taking attendence at all practice fields. If any child misses the mandatory conditioning the first 2 weeks, please notify your head coach and/or business manager as soon as you are aware they will not be able to make it. Make-up conditioning options will be discussed with your head coach, myself and the football director.
Lastly, if there is any gear that does not fit or you have not picked up gear yet, the ONLY time to do this will be this Saturday August 1st at the container at the high school at 8am. We will not be handing out the spirit packs that were not picked up. The spirit packs will be turned over to your team staff for distribution.
Please note, there are some items we had to order that may not be in this weekend, if you are missing something you were told needed to be ordered, please email us before coming Saturday to see if the missing items have arrived.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Are you ready for some football????

2015 season is fast approaching!
Thanks to all of our families that stopped by to get their football gear this past Saturday. It was great to see new and old faces! Please make sure your kids try on all gear at home, with the pads in, to verify all items fit correctly.
We will have our last and final distribution on Sunday July 26th from 10am - 1pm at the high school.
This will be the last time to get your gear before conditioning starts on Saturday August 1st. This will also be the only time to exchange gear that may not fit correctly.
Additionally, we will be distributing all spirit packs to all football players on Sunday July 26th. These were not distibuted this past Saturday so all families will need to come on the 26th to pick up. If you cannot attend on the 26th, we will distribute by team the first week of conditioning.
