Here is what you need to know before you go:

 

Week 1 (August 12-16): Freshman-Senior Daily Practice Schedule

PLEASE NOTE THE START AND END TIMES FOR EACH PRACTICE

Monday, August 12th, 8:00am – 3:00pm

  • Players should arrive around 7:30am, or early enough so they are ready to play by 8:00am.  Meet in the Blue Forum on the first day of practice at 8:00am.

Tuesday, August 13th, 8:00am – 2:00pm

Wednesday, August 14th, 8:00am – 3:00pm PICTURE DAY

  • Bring picture day order form (will be handed out the first day of practice).
  • Please note…this is the picture that will be printed on the Player Yard Signs that families can choose to order through a donation to the Touchdown Club. (Click here to donate) If players switch jersey numbers after pictures, the jersey number they were wearing for picture day is the number that will be on their sign.

Thursday, August 15th, 11:00am – 7:30pm PRACTICE and then HAWK CARD BLITZ and POTLUCK DINNER NIGHT  (end time is variable depending on when players finish eating dinner)

  • All players must bring their Hawk Card envelopes, money they have collected and cards they still have to sell to practice today. If players haven’t received their Hawk Cards yet, they will receive them after practice today.
  • Seniors and juniors with their drivers licenses will be driving freshman and sophomore players to a neighborhood to sell HAWK cards on Blitz night as a team. If you have any concerns with that arrangement, contact Sarah Sampson, @sjsampson1@gmail.com, and she will make alternate arrangements for that player, either riding with a parent volunteer or selling in a walking only neighborhood nearby. The blitz team with the most total cards sold will have a Chick-Fil-A/ice cream celebration at the end of practice the next day!
  • Pasta dinner following Blitz. The Pasta Dinner will be a POTLUCK. We need parent volunteers to provide food and help with serving and clean up. All food donations should be brought to the Chaska HS Commons between 6:45 and 7:00. Please sign up HERE.

ADDITIONAL INFO FOR ALL PLAYERS

 

What should you bring to practice?
Players should bring shorts, shirt, cleats, water bottle, and lunch.

 

What's the scoop with food?

Snack will be provided for the players.  Lunchtime will vary depending on what is going on with practice but is usually around 11:15am.  Players should plan to bring a lunch from home.  Players should not leave the school between practices.

 

Can I practice for 2-A-Days if I haven't signed up with the Chaska High School Athletic Office?

NO! You must register for Fall Football through the Athletic Office or you will not be allowed to practice with the team.  If you have not registered yet, you can watch the practice for your position group but will not be allowed to play, so sign up now!!!  Click HERE to register.

You also need an up-to-date physical before you can play.  The MN State High School League requires a physical; it is valid for 2 years and must include a physician's signature.  So, it is likely that if you are a freshman or a junior, you will need an updated physical form before you can play.  But be sure to check with the Athletic Office if you have any questions.  They have the final say in whether you are in compliance.  The physical form your doctor needs to complete can be found HERE.

 

Where do I find all of this schedule information?

You can find the 2-A-Day practice calendar on the Events calendar on the website and also under your teams schedule.  To find your schedule:  

Go to Teams (on the bar across the top), select Choose a Team then select your team.  On the left, select Schedule to see all 2-A-Day practices and games for your team.  

 

What is our practice schedule like after 2-A-Days are over?

Normal “after-school” practices begin on August 26th at 3pm. These practices are NOT listed on the team schedules or the event calendar; only 2-A-Day practices and games are listed here.

 

Besides Blitz Night, when will we be turning in money we collect from selling Hawk Cards?

We will collect money on Tuesday, August 27th down by the locker room, right before you head out to practice. Our final Hawk Card money collection day will be Tuesday, September 10th, again, right before you head out to practice.
