Dear Rising 5th and 6th Grade Parents,
I hope this letter finds you doing well after a very busy year. For those of you who are interested, in addition to our intramural season, we will offer a 5th Grade and a 6th Grade Crusader team. As always, our PDS coaches will be coaching these teams with Mark Fruitt heading up the 5th Grade team and Dwight Creasman heading up the 6th Grade team.
Meeting for 5th Grade
There will be a brief parents meeting for 5th Grade only (current 4th Graders) on Monday, May 20th at 8:15am in Room E111. Please make every effort to have at least one parent in attendance. We anticipate that the meeting will be over by 8:45am.
We will begin practice Thursday, August 8th. The practice schedule is as follows: weekdays August 8th-13th from 9:00-11:00am. Practice times after the 13th are TBA. Boys will be in shorts, t-shirts, and helmets on the first two days of practice. The rest of the week the boys will be in full pads.
Each player needs to provide his own shoulder pads, football pants, cleats, and white helmet for practice. The school will provide the game uniform and helmet.
There are no tryouts; however, these teams may not be for everyone and playing time is not guaranteed. Crusader football players must also play in the PDS intramural football league. The Crusaders are competitive level teams and are for boys that want more games and practices in addition to the intramural league.
The cost for playing Crusader football is $175.00 and is due the first week of practice.
If you have any other questions, please contact Coach Fruitt 842-4610 or Coach Creasman 842-4625. You will be receiving more information on the first day of practice. As always, thank you for your support and here’s to a great upcoming season.
