Head Coach: Matt Cersosimo
Dear Chieftain Football parent and player,
It is with great excitement that I am writing to you. The information that you are receiving is very important for the success and organization of the upcoming football season. All the information is given to you so you know exactly what to do and when you are expected to be at school, meetings, workouts, and practices.
Summer Strength Training: June 13th - Aug 12th. The Chieftain Strength & Conditioning Center is open for training two times a day, 700-9:00 am and 4:00-6:00 pm. We will train four days a week Monday - Tuesday - Thursday - Friday. We realize that you may go away on vacation and that is fine. We just ask the players to communicate with us so we know when they will be away.
First Team Meeting: will be on Friday, August 12th at 7:00 am in the Conard Gymnasium. All players should register and get their physical in July before the football season. You have to register on the Conard Athletics website, whathletics.org.
Conditioning practices: start Monday, August 15th. Times will be announced at the first meeting, August 12th.
Once school starts freshmen practice immediately after school until approximately 4:30 pm and the Varsity/Junior Varsity start positional meetings/lifting/study hall immediately after school. Practice will start at 4:00 pm and end at approximately 6:15 pm. Saturday practices will be from 8:00 to 10:00 am.
This sport demands the utmost commitment from your son. This is a major commitment for your family. I want to thank you now for your support and for all you do for our program.
