I have been given permission to reach out regarding the start of fall football... I know these are very uncertain times and there are many questions still to be had, yet I am hopeful we can all move through these next few months together..
As I am sure you have all heard, it looks like we will be officially starting football towards the end of next week. PSD and the health department are still finalizing a few items, but at this time it is looking like we are moving forward and need to take the appropriate steps to ensure we are ready. We are planning to start voluntary practice and training at Rocky this coming Monday from 4:30 - 6:30 pm. Players will check in at the gates to French Field and need tennis shoes, cleats, individual water bottles and face coverings. We will be following strict guidelines and will break our athletes out in smaller groups from there. We are currently planning to run these voluntary practices on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. This is not yet an official practice. We are waiting for final word for that to happen.
As I sent out last week, players will need to have a current physical on file with our front office. In addition to that, there is online paperwork and a fee that needs to be paid prior to your athlete being allowed to participate once the season officially begins. Please visit https://www.rockyathletics.org/ (link is below) for more information. Once you are at that site, you will need to navigate to Orange Permit Process...Online Registration at the top of the page.
Many of you have asked about spirit packs. I know many have ordered and either have their gear or are waiting on their gear. If you have not been able to order gear, the online store for GOJOS is currently open and is rmhsfootballfall2020.itemorder.com (Link is below).
Know that we are all in this together and that we all want what is best for our boys today and moving forward.
