Recruiting and College Football: All Grades

Good Morning: 

Last spring I shared a Google Form that players had the option to fill out if they are interested in playing football at the college level. This year's form can be found here. If you are interested in playing at the next level, please complete this form. I share information throughout the form so please be sure to read closely. Even if you completed the form last year, please complete this one to update your information. 

This is open to all CHS football players regardless of graduating class. Keep in mind, grades are the most IMPORTANT factor in making yourself "recruitable" and freshman/sophomore CORE class GPA plays a major role. 

If a player completes the form (therefore is interested in playing) I will meet with them to discuss in person. I will meet with members of the class of 2019 first. 

As always, please reach out if you have questions. 

Thank you

Passing League and Green Days for Skill Players

Good Afternoon:

We hope everyone had a wonderful Spring Break! 

As we shared with players prior to the break, we have scheduled Green Days for SKILL players Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday of this week to prep for our passing league that begins Sunday Night at Evergreen Sportsplex.

Key points for this week's Green Days:

  • Open to anyone interested playing a skill position (QB, WR, TE, RB or LB, DB)
  • OL/DL will only lift (same options of CT, PFit, after school apply)
    • OL/DL Green Days will take place at a later date
  • Players should bring cleats and shoes.
  • If the grass practice field ("the wedge") is playable we will work outside.
  • If the grass field is too saturated, we will be in the main gym so have appropriate shoes.
  • Skill players should meet in the upstairs locker room and be ready to go by 3:10 (same time as weight room)
  • Sessions will run for approximately 2 hours from 3:15-5:15.

Passing League

Information regarding the league has been shared several times and can be found in earlier posts or on our Google Site. Please review if you have questions or email Coach Curry directly.

Key Points Regarding Passing League:

  • Open to anyone interested playing a skill position (QB, WR, TE, RB or LB, DB)
  • If you haven't already signed up, please visit Evergreen's site to do so.
  • The facility is no further from Chantilly than the other passing league options
  • The facility is far superior to the other passing league options
  • Rising 9 and Rising 10 will play the "early" games
  • Rising 11/12 and some 10 will play later games
  • The league will run every Sunday through May 20 including Mother's Day

This week, commitment to building a winning program will look like the following:

  • Skill players lift during CT or Pfit, attend practice, participate in Passing League 
  • Oline/Dline should lift during CT, PFit, or after school 

This long stretch of Spring is absolutely VITAL to success in the fall; games are decided in the off-season! What are you doing to get better?

Weight Room Attendance: Denilson Moreno Leads the Charge

The coaching staff wants to commend the efforts of all the players who have committed to making Chantilly Football better this off-season. There are a number of young men who are attending workouts during Charger Time, After School, and/or during Personal Fitness. Thank you for your effort.

We would like to recognize the following young men for their exceptional commitment to the weight room. The players listed below have attended a minimum of 20 workout sessions since January 2. Those highlighted in yellow are enrolled in Personal Fitness and have exceeded expectations as they are not expected to attend additional workouts (please review previous blasts for more information about "PFit").

A special "Congratulations" to Denilson Moreno for setting the standard thus far! 

Last Name First Name Class Total As Of March 13, 2018
Moreno Denilson Junior (2020) 47
Kwon Eric Junior (2020) 33

Leadership Meeting, Weight Room, Passing League

Good Morning:
 
Leadership Meeting
We will be holding our second "Leadership Meeting" on March 21 at 7 pm. The location is still to TBD. To support our multi-sport athletes and guarantee an opportunity for all of our players to participate, we select dates that avoid "in-season" conflicts. As of now, there are no conflicts with baseball, lacrosse, or track. 
 
GET IN THE WEIGHT ROOM, PLEASE!
The "Spring Dead Period" is now over and we expect participation in our strength training program. The only way to affect change in the fall is to act from January until July. In-season athletes should carve time out to join us either after school or during CT. Spring/rec leagues should not take precedence over the weight room. Again, this is why Personal Fitness is a necessity for an athlete!
 
Interesting Read Regarding Risks/Rewards of Football
 
Passing League
If you want to play a skill position in the fall, please register for our passing league here. Evergreen is a top of the line facility, provides top-end competition we won't see during the regular season and is no less-convenient to get to than Mt. Vernon and Hayfield (our other options). 
 
Note on Commitment
Our goal is to be explicit with expectations and transparent about what we believe must happen in order to improve the program. It won't happen overnight but it will come with time if we have participation and buy-in from athletes and families. 
 
It is easy to point fingers and complain DURING the season, but if we ask the question "What did YOU do to improve the program?", how will you answer?
 
As always, thank you for your support.

Read Across America

Good Morning,

This week, 2/26-3/2, local schools are celebrating "Read Across America" week. We are looking for volunteers to read to elementary students on Thursday and Friday. 

The opportunities are at Greenbriar West and Lees Corner. Greenbriar West is scheduled for Thursday at 10:30 and Lees Corner is scheduled for Friday at 8:30. Athletes would spend about an hour working with students. 

We can walk to Greenbriar West, but athletes would need to provide their own transportation to and from Lees Corner. 

Please use this form to register so that I can get permission slips and information to you in the next day or two.

Thank you!

Off-Season Information

Good Afternoon,

We hope everyone had a pleasant and enjoyable holiday season. Despite the crazy weather, we have had a busy start to 2018! We have added some quality men to our coaching staff, started our off-season strength and conditioning program, and have outlined the rest of our winter and spring. Additionally, we have created a website to supplement ChantillySports.org that can be found here. If you have trouble accessing the site as a parent, please have your athlete login using their fcpsschools.net account.

Leadership Meetings

As we enter our first off-season in the building, the coaching staff is looking forward to making some significant improvements to how we spend the winter/spring off-season. One significant change will be the addition of monthly "Leadership Meetings". These meetings will have less to do with Xs and Os and more to do with the culture and state of the program. These meetings are open to all interested players regardless of experience or age. 

These meetings will be related to program development and our attempt to deliberately create a positive culture/leadership within the program. 

We will hold one meeting per month throughout the spring. Dates will be set to work around the schedules of the varsity “in-season” sports in which our athletes are most likely to participate (winter: wrestling/basketball; spring: lax/baseball) so that everyone has an opportunity to participate in our meetings. 

Our first meeting will be two weeks from now on Thursday, January 25 at 7 pm in the Lecture Hall.  The first meeting will focus on Core Values and team rules.

Meetings for Feb, March, April, May are TBD based on our CHS Varsity Sports schedules.


Off-Season Point System

To create additional incentives this off-season, we have established scoring criteria to help guide our players' off-season efforts.

The concept is simple: do right and earn points. Outside of losing points for negative behaviors, this system is based almost entirely on rewarding positive behaviors, not punishing negative behaviors. A number of players have provided feedback regarding incentives/rewards. The most frequently identified incentive was the selection of equipment and jersey numbers; therefore, among other rewards and recognition throughout the off-season, the top point earners will have the first choice of equipment and jerseys numbers.

Although equipment will be distributed for camps, there will be plenty of opportunities to rise (or fall) on the leaderboard between equipment issue and jersey selection. Scoring Criteria can be found on the new site linked at the beginning or by accessing this document.

Important Dates and Camp Information

Please find dates for workouts, passing league, camps, and equipment issue by accessing this document.  The abbreviated outline is as follows:

Passing League at Evergreen Sportsplex:

  • April 8, 15, 22, 29, May 6, 13, 20

Register here for passing league.  7v7 Passing League is open to anyone interested in playing. 

  • Combo Camp will run June 11, 12, 13, and 14. Registration information is forthcoming. 
  • Team Camp will be at Evergreen Sportsplex running from July 9, 10, 11, and 12. Register here.
  • Freshman Camp will at Evergreen Sportsplex running from July 9, 10, 11, and 12. Register here.

Player/Coach Meetings

Players should sign-up for a meeting with Coach Curry using this link. We ask that all players pick three potential dates. A schedule will be made and shared via Google Classroom and our new Google Site. After school meetings will occur Monday through Thursday and will last approximately 10 minutes. If there is an after school conflict that cannot be avoided, players need to make arrangements with Coach to meet during the school day.

We are excited about the future of the program and committed to our players' development not only as athletes but as young men as well.

Reminder

Good Evening:

With course selections underway, we wanted to take a moment to reiterate the importance of Personal Fitness.  

If competing is a priority—both individually and as a program—dedication to the weight room is non-negotiable. The best option is to take Personal Fitness. Nothing will change without a change in mindset and an increase in commitment. We are grateful for the twenty or so athletes who have been diligent in their commitment thus far this off-season. 

We understand that, to many parents and players, football seems a long way off this time of year, but the fact is progress comes slowly and only with consistent effort and dedication. We try to stress to our players that every day is a choice to either improve or regress. The days are deposits that are cashed in the fall. The less we contribute now, the fewer returns we will see during the season.

The easiest way to meet the necessary commitment to the weight room is to take the class that places you in the weight room every other day.

Below you will find the information we shared last week.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With course selection just around the corner for the '18-'19 school year, it is important that we stress the benefits of taking Personal Fitness as an elective.

It is absolutely imperative that we make Personal Fitness a major part of the Chantilly Football Culture, especially for Sophomores and Juniors.  If we hope to become a competitive program, committing to the weight room is not optional. To compete within our district, our athletes need to lift weights year-round, multiple times per week, in a structured environment. This has to be priority number one until we close the significant gap between CHS and every program on our schedule. If athletes want to be successful, they have two options: carve out three afternoons a week to lift after school from the end of the season until summer workouts begin or elect to take personal fitness. If neither path is taken, we will continue to struggle.

CHS is fortunate to have one of the best Directors of Student Services in all of Virginia in Ms. Robyn Lady. If a parent/guardian or athlete has any questions or reservations about enrolling in Personal Fitness and its impact on the college application process, please feel free to reach out to her directly at ralady@fcps.edu. 

In addition to helping improve our ability to compete against the best teams in the area, there are added academic benefits as well.

  • Students will have one less class to worry about in terms of homework thus allowing more time to work/study for core classes (the classes that matter most for college admissions).
  • Students will have more free time to pursue other interests thus reducing the likelihood of school-induced stress/anxiety.
  • Personal Fitness is the best way for multi-sport athletes to participate in the all of the sports they love while simultaneously improving strength and athleticism!!!
  • Football players are NOT expected to participate in after/before school strength and conditioning sessions if they are enrolled in Personal Fitness! Our athletes will not feel pulled in multiple directions after school nor will they find their time monopolized by off-season workouts!
  • Successful participation in Personal Fitness earns 100 points in our off-season point system.
  •  Exercise is proven to improve cognitive ability: see reason number two from a list published in Time (see link)

Updates: Team Site, Leadership Meeting, New Coaches, and Personal Fitness

Good Evening,

We have revised the website we created and shared a few weeks ago so that an FCPS account is no longer required to access the page. We hope this makes it easier for parents/guardians to access information! The more accessible site can be found here. 

Even if you were able to view the previous version, please take a moment to review the site carefully. Among other information, you will find important dates for the off-season, passing league/camp information and registration links as well information about the Off-Season Point System.

Weight Room and Meetings

The off-season is fully underway and although we have a core of dedicated young men working together, our numbers still aren't where they need to be. If they are not in Personal Fitness, please continue to encourage your son to join us three days per week in the weight room. Sessions are open during Charger Time and after school.

Please continue to sign-up for one-on-one meetings with Coach Curry.

Leadership Meeting and Additions to the Coaching Staff

Just a reminder that this Thursday (1/25) at 7 pm we will have our first Leadership/Core Values meeting. It will be held in the CHS Lecture Hall (across from the Library). All players interested in helping shape the culture of the program should try to attend! We will also introduce five of our program's new coaches. We look forward to working toward a new culture as well welcoming our new coaches to Chantilly Football.
