Bulldog Football 2019  

NO MORE 2-a-days

August Team Camp will be the 2 weeks prior to school and practice will be 8:00am – 11:00am

then lifting & film from 11:00am – 12:00 noon.

Why?

  • With the amount of time we are able to spend with kids in June and July, we don’t need all the time of a second full practice to be fully prepared.
  • Allows players to maintain afternoon summer jobs for a couple more weeks.
  • Less stress on legs and bodies and less time in the extreme heat.
  • Trainer Mike sent out a message to other trainers across the country and received a lot of info about significantly fewer injuries both during the camp and the season overall.
  • More time for team bonding with fun activities on a few afternoons
    • Swimming at Crystal Lake, Silver Lake and the Quarry
    • Bowling, Putt Putt, Wiffle Ball, Team Picnic / Cookout
  • More time to arrange physicals, dentist appts, physical therapy, outside of practice time.
  • At least 2 of the current 7 State Champs have not done 2-a-days in the last 5 years.

Our schedule will include:

  • A brief morning meeting
  • On the field warming up by 8:00am
  • Llift or watch film at 11:15-11:45am
  • Team meeting at 11:45 to discuss that day and the next.
  • These practices will still be intense and require mental and physical toughness, but just a little less time spent doing it.

We truly believe in this new schedule.  It will be a great experience for anyone in the program!  We are excited! Be a part of something special – The Bulldog Program !
