Summer weight lifting and conditioning starts Monday, June 17th at 5pm. Weight lifting will run every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 5pm-7pm. We will start in the weight room each day. Due to the VHSL dead period we will not lift July 1st through July 5th. It is understood that families will be traveling this summer, but if you are in town you are expected to be at weight lifting and conditioning. Don't forget to get your physical taken care of before the first day of practice, August 1st.
We will be hosting a free one day football camp on June 6th at 5pm. It is a great chance to get to know the coaching staff at CF, see the school and learn new skills and techniques that we teach everyday. Camp information is listed below. Please go to the file section of this website and download the registration form and bring it with you on June 6th or mail it in. Please bring cleats, athletic attire and a water bottle. Water coolers will be provided as well.

CAMP OBJECTIVE: The purpose of the camp is to assist young people in improving their football skills and developing proper playing habits. Working with other players and the meaning of teamwork and sportsmanship will be stressed as important athletic values.
The camp staff will be giving instruction in basic football skills such as: blocking, tackling, running, and other football related skills. Both sessions will include drills to help players correct faults and/or perfect the skills they are trying to develop and will be the same. There is no need to come to both sessions unless you want to.

Physicals will not be given at Colonial Forge this year. It's important to get your physical before the first day of practice. Missing practice because you don't have a physical is not a valid excuse to miss practice. Please make an appointment as soon as possible to get a physical. Physicals given after May 1st are valid for the entirety of the 2019-2020 school year. https://www.vhsl.org/vhsl-physical-form/
This is the schedule for summer JV and varsity practice. Practice starts on August 1st and at 7:30 am. Starting the week of August 5th practices will be in the afternoon starting no earlier then 2:45. Times can be changed due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances and will be relayed to the players and sent out via Twitter @infoforge as well as posted here. All players are expected to be on time each day. Players must weigh in before each practice and weigh out after practice in order to track hydration. Please ensure that your child is drinking plenty of water throughout the summer. After practice, please allow time for players to walk from the practice field, put their equipment away and weigh out. A good rule of thumb is to expect players to be ready to leave 15-20 minutes after practice. There will be times in the summer, especially at the beginning, that we will hand out additional practice items, fundraiser cards, etc., that will take a few extra minutes. Thank you all for your cooperation.
