    Football 2018Dear Ballard Football Families and Friends,

    The off-season continues to be very successful! Our weight room attendance is still very high and our after school study hall continues to grow! We also have dozens of players competing for Ballard in a Spring sport! The players and coaches are very excited about the environment we are creating and we are looking forward to our first football meeting on May 29th!

    Our 2018 Varsity Schedule has been released!

    We are very excited about this schedule! Our league games (weeks 4-7) should be more competitive as this is the second year of the Metro League tier system; teams are placed with similarly talented teams (based off last season). Our first two non-league games we were very intentional about scheduling. Both programs are traditionally physical teams that love to run the ball. Evaluating last season we struggled at times against these types of teams. Going into this season we want to make sure we are exposed to physical run heavy teams early in the season so we are prepared come league games and playoffs!

    Our Online Team Store is now open! It closes May 2nd. This will ensure that the orders will be delivered prior to Spring Ball (May 29th). It will reopen again in July. Thanks to great feedback about last years store we now have multiple options for women! Each item is marked up slightly to double as a small fundraiser for us so please share this link with anybody you think would like to wear Ballard Football merch!

    Access the Team Store here and use the source code OFTSBDF3

    During Spring Ball for our JV & Varsity we are also hosting two football camps! The first one is a Youth Camp (incoming grades 2-8) and an Incoming Freshman Camp. Last year was our first year and we felt it was a huge success! We expect this year to be great as well and hope we get a bigger turnout! If you know any families that may be interested please pass on the information!

    Information and registration for our Camp is available online here!

    Team Camp (JV and Varsity) in Olympia is on the horizon. I want to remind you that the cost per player will be $300. It is one of the most powerful experience we have as a program and I don't want any of our players to miss out. I am still finalizing the details on a fundraiser to help families with Team Camp. I will have that information for you in the next email (roughly 2 weeks).   Sign Up Today!

    Heading into Spring there are items we need to purchase to give our players a safe and enjoyable experience. I was recently talking with a couple families from our program and we were talking about the things we need for spring ball and the season. At the end of the discussion they encouraged me to put the information out to families because there are families that are willing and able to help but don't know what we need. Here are some items we need to raise money for:
    1. Practice Jerseys (80 JV & Varsity, 40 Freshman) - $2200. The practice jerseys we have been using are old game jerseys from over 10 years ago. They are in bad condition and I don't want our players wearing them.

    2. Footballs (15) - $720. Last year we purchased some footballs but we primarily used footballs that were donated to us from another school. They were the footballs that their program were throwing out and they have the other schools logo on it.

    3. Wristbands (40) - $310. We use wristbands as our primary way of communicating plays during practice or games to our players. Having these would allow all three of our teams have wristbands that are exclusive to their team.
      Last but not least here is our Spring and Summer Calendar. It is the same I sent out in the last email but we have some new families on here now! 

    The Spring & Summer Calendar is available here.

    Thank you all for continued support of Ballard Football! We are fortunate to have such a great community around us!
