Attention 7th and 8th Grade Students, Parents, and Guardians!
The Sailorway Middle School coaching staff would like to invite any 7th and 8th grade young man or woman to join the Vermilion Sailors football program.
The Middle School football program an important step in helping to build a successful high school program, and in building character and commitment. By joining the football program, each young person will gain confidence, build character, and develop a positive attitude.
Conditioning begins: Monday, June 28 6:00 to 7:30 PM at the VHS Field House. All conditionings will be at the field house on Mondays and Wednesdays. These are not mandatory but are opportunities to get exercise, develop football related skills and have some friendly competition.
Full practices: Begin August 2 at 4:30 PM. All practices will be at Sailorway Middle School. Our schedule is for 8 games, and we will play against other 7th and 8th grade school teams. All games are on Thursdays. A full calendar of practices and games is on the SMS website.
The lessons learned in playing sports are lessons for life. Teamwork and commitment skills, along with the experience of hard work, all lead to developing positive mental and physical behaviors that translate to the classroom and to life. Our coaches work hard to give our athletes a positive experience, and we strive to teach them as much about having the right attitude and skills for football as for the classroom and their home life.
We are building something special here at Vermilion and hope you will be part of the foundation of returning Sailor Football back to its place at the top. As coaches, we are excited to start the season and hope to have you join us! Let’s get Sailor Football back where it belongs! Let’s take Sailor athletics to the top! Go Sailors!
