Yup, it’s that time of year again! We just wanted to reach out and thank all of you that have registered on line to try-out for the Necco Raiders. We are looking forward to another exciting football season. Below is important information regarding try-outs and some upcoming events.
We are going to be at Raider field on JULY 30th 10am - 12pm for sign-ups and a meet and greet. We would like everyone who has registered to come down to the field so we can get an accurate height and weight from the boys and also so we can just meet everyone that has signed up. It would be a good time to meet the coaches, see where you will be practicing every night and take a look at the Raider Hill!! It will probably only take about 20-30 min of your time on Saturday. If you cannot make it this weekend please send me back an email with your child's name letting me know that they will not be there and I will pass it on to their coaches.
Tackle Football info (3rd - 8th Grade)

Important Info & Tips
Please have your child start drinking a lot of water so he does not get dehydrated. Now would be a good time to start running and exercising to get ready for next week. We will be practicing in shorts and t-shirts the first week of practice, please put your child's last name and grade on the front and back of their shirts so we can tell who they are. Cleats are suggested but tennis shoes are fine if you do not have cleats yet.
We are looking forward to meeting all of the new families and also looking forward to seeing the returning families again. Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any questions (#’s Below).
