The dates are: Saturday July 18, 2015 from 10:30 A. M. to 11:30 A. M. a make up meeting is scheduled for Monday July 27, 2015 from 6:30 P. M. to 7:30 P. M. both meetings will be held at the Hartford Rec Center. This is a MANDATORY MEETING. YOU MUST ATTEND WITH YOUR PLAYER. If you can not attend you must contact either Club President Pam Feucht or Club Vice President Jim Sedlachek.
USA Football. HYFB has become USA Football Heads Up Certified. Coach Mark Oechsner has completed his safety training and Hartford Youth Football is in compliance with the USA Football Heads Up program. We are one of the first clubs in AAYFL to do this. This further shows HYFB's commitment to player safety.
Trainer and Concussion Baseline Testing. Once again we will have a trainer on staff for all home games and some practices. We will also have our trainer available at any road game where the hosting team does not offer a trainer. As part of our agreement with the trainer we are offering free baseline concussion screening. Please click here for more information. The dates for the free screening are Wednesday June 17, Monday July 13, and Thursday July 16. Please read the flyer for times, locations, and registering instructions.
E-mail Addresses. In the last few weeks I have sent out a few e-mails in regards to important upcoming dates and times. If you have not received any of those e-mails then I do not have your accurate address. If you send me your correct address with the grade your player is in then I will get you added to our list. My e-mail address is JimSedlachek@hartfordyouthfootball.com.
Twitter. We have started our own twitter account, @HYFB1, we will be using this over the course of the season to get out word to parents and family quickly. Things like, Practice has ended due to weather, game time delays, anything that needs to be communicated quickly.
Parking and Pick Up. Due to too many issues on Sunset, there will be no dropping off or picking up of players on Sunset. You must go through the High School lot to pick up and drop off your player. We will be directing all players to the High School lot, this also helps the coaches keep track of players and makes it easier to know that all players have been picked up.
Practice Times and Dates. The first practice will be Saturday August 1, from 9:00 to 10:30 A.M. after that date we will be practicing from 5:30 P.M. - 7:00 P.M. Monday through Friday. We will not be practicing on Saturdays. We will have one scrimmage on a Saturday, the time and location for the scrimmage has yet to be determined. Once the school year begins, we will be back to our normal practice schedule of 5:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday with games on Saturdays.
