Greetings and welcome to the WYF 3/4 Flag Browns!!
It is an honor and privilege to be coaching your kids this flag season. I and Coach Santosky are very excited for the group of players we have on the Browns this season... We are equally excited to get started playing some football...
A few things we would like to address upfront...
Fall Practice - The Browns are currently slated to practice on Wednesdays. One of the ideas Coach Santosky and I wanted to get the parents feedback on was if there was an appetite for an hour and a half practice on Saturdays in advance of our games. The Saturday practice would replace the Wednesday practice, it would not be in addition to it. In my coaching experience, there is often better play retention with a Saturday practice. Currently, all but one of our games is at 3pm, so practice would start at 1:30pm.
Summer Practice - Ideally we can get in two or three weekday practices in this summer. Please advise if Thursdays or Friday work better. We would possibly start these practice the week of 8/12. These summer practices would be to focus on building fundamentals and to get the team familiar with each other.
Equipment - Please make sure your Brown has cleats, a mouthguard and plenty of water. Flags and jerseys will be provided. For the games, your Brown will need all of the above, and they will also need to ensure that the shorts or pants worn do not have any bright colors or stripes that could blend in with the flags. Please keep all game gear solid neutral colors.
Your Brown - All kids learn and process information differently, if your Brown has any issues with learning or focus, please let us so we can help ensure they are understanding the plays and having fun.
Schedule - We all live hectic schedules, if you know your Brown is going to miss a practice or game please let us know.
More information to come in the near future. Please reach out with any questions or concerns.
The Browns loyal fans are often referred to as the "Dawg Pound," as your families are the core of our Browns fan base it is our pleasure to welcome your child to the Browns and to welcome you to the Dawg Pound.
