Freshman Football

  • The following is our team philosophy and our philosophy on athletics and what is best for kids.  We encourage students to compete in basketball, wrestling, and swimming in the winter.  Encourage athletes to compete in track and field in the spring.  The facts show that this is what leads kids to be the most successful!!! 

    Structure:  There will be one Freshman Team and every player will get opportunities to play!  We work hard to develop our players at the freshman and JV levels.

    Schedule:  We will play a schedule filled with mostly AA teams.  The schedule allows for the freshmen teams to have little travel or to not travel very far.  A schedule will be provided later and posted on our school website (below).  The schedule is always subject to change for freshmen.

    First Practice:  The first Varsity practice is Friday, August 11th at 9:00 AM.  Freshman Football will also begin on August 11th (website for exact date).   Thursday, August 10th will be for check-in and equipment and payment.  All fees and forms will be paid and turned in before participation. 

    Athletes who come to the weight room will be issued equipment after lifting.

    Weight Room:  The Big Sky weight room is open each weekday from 7-9 AM starting on June 12th.  We encourage freshmen to come and participate in weight training, speed workouts, and dynamic stretch.  These are the three facets of our conditioning program at Big Sky and it would be beneficial to get an early start.  The coaches at Big Sky monitor these programs and will provide instruction in proper lifting techniques and safety procedures.  We have dedicated lifting instructors for 9th graders. Just be there at 7 am sharp!!! 


    At Big Sky we all wear black shoes.  For cold gear, we wear dark bottoms and white tops.  This is a part of our team model.
