Practice Time Update for Next Week and Freshmen Football Update

Dear Forge Football Family,

Due to the threat of dangerous heat, we decided to move practice from the evening to 6:30-8:45 a.m. Monday through Thursday of next week. (We have a scrimmage Friday evening in Prince William County.) I will make sure the showers are clean so that the players can shower before school. Breakfast will be served at school every morning this year, so the kids will also have an opportunity to eat before school. 

I apologize for any confusion, as I know this is a change from my earlier email where I mentioned having practices in the evening next week. I originally planned to have practice in the evenings, but I am concerned that if the humidity and temperature remain high then we could be flagged and have to cancel practice all together. While this is based on the weather forecast, which could certainly be wrong, we are trying to make the best decisions we can with the information we have. Plus, we were concerned that some students would have to be at school for nearly 12 hours for four days in a row, which is a lot, and they would not be able to eat dinner until they got home at the end of the day. 

In other news, we are excited to announce that we will be able to have a freshmen team this year. This allows us to get our players as much football experience as possible. Dave Tavenner has led our freshmen team for several years and does an outstanding job. Because we are going to be practicing before school this coming week, all freshmen that moved to the freshmen locker room today will pause football practice next week. Freshmen practice will resume on Monday, August 16, after school. Any freshmen that is on JV or varsity should report to practice at 6:30 a.m. next week.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I really appreciate everyone's flexibility as we try to work around the weather, a new bell schedule and COVID restrictions. 

Have a good weekend,
Coach Brown

Practice Update

Good Morning All,

  • Due to the expected heat next week practice time will move to 6pm and end at 8:20pm.
  • Practice starts today at 3:30 and will be done by 6pm.  We will move most of the freshmen to the school after practice so that all players may have lockers.  Please plan your ride accordingly.
  • We will only practice today in shoulder pads and helmets, not full gear today.
  • All new players and freshmen, please be sure to set up your email fundraiser account and get that started.
  • All players need to get their signature packets and emergency cards turned in today.

See you this afternoon,
Coach Brown

Parent Info Night Rescheduled

We are going to reschedule the meeting to tomorrow evening, Wednesday, August 3rd at 7:30pm.  Since we are able to move practice times up this week due to the good weather it makes more sense to reschedule the meeting and not try to fit everything in today.  Thanks for your understanding.

Saturday, July 31st is the only Saturday I plan to have Saturday practice at this time, however, weather conditions may warrant that we may have to practice on a Saturday if need be.
