Alpharetta Jr Raider Football

6th Grade

Welcome to 6th grade Jr. Raider Football!

FALL PRACTICES

Practice in the Fall Season will be from 6:30pm – 8:30pm at Alpharetta High School (AHS) on the main football field. Practices will be held Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. All practices will be in full pads unless communicated otherwise.

Please make sure players bring plenty of water to all practices.

We are guests at AHS.  Occasionally, we may have changes to our practice schedule based on AHS events.  We will communicate any changes as soon as they become known to us.

Players should be dressed and ready to start practice promptly at 6:30pm. If a player will be late to practice or not be able to attend practice, please notify your coach prior to practice.

GAMES

WE WILL HAVE A GAME ON LABOR DAY WEEKEND AND ALL PLAYERS ARE EXPECTED TO BE AVAILABLE.

We will have two teams just as we did last year.  We will discuss the two team system at the parent meeting.

EQUIPMENT

Each player should have received his equipment.  Players need to buy a chin strap, mouth piece, girdle and cleats.  Players should make all equipment adjustments (e.g., adjusting their chin strap) prior to the start of practice.  Also, each player should place a piece of white athletic tape on the front of his helmet with his name and the number of years playing football.  If this is the player’s first year, place a 0 next to the player’s name.
