WPFI Season is Here

Welcome Wee Panthers Football Families,
 
The season is upon us! Monday night is the start of a new exciting season.  Since we have Flag incorporated for the second year I figured I would break the first week of practice and events down. This will be a long email but figured it would save me several hundred emails in questions.
 
Note: I am sending this email from the one call email system and will send it through the registration page just verify everyone has received the information.  Please if you have questions on these items please bring those questions to the parent meeting.

NOTE: This agenda for the week is not set in stone.  Obviously, weather can play a major role in quick changes.  During the week, we will be splitting teams.  Therefore, make sure you pay attention to the coaches at the end of the night for your grade and or teams intentions.  The acclimation of what is worn is set standard.  So, if we miss any of the days or your player missed it is required to have 2 days helmets, 2 days helmet and shoulder pads and 1 day full pads before full contact can be made. Monday if all goes well everyone will be full contact.
 
Thanks
