Updates for the Week of April 5, 2021

Good Morning:

The developmental team will travel to Edison this evening for the final JV game of the season. Please note the adjusted start time of 6 pm. Players will not have the opportunity to go home between practice and departure for Edison

Players playing in tonight's game should come to practice dressed in their developmental uniform.

Consequently, we will be moving today's practice start time to 3 pm. As usual, today is a full pad practice and players need to wear their 7-pad girdles. 

Ms. Bishop will be available for treatment at 1:30. 

Freshmen will play their last game on Thursday at Washington-Liberty. The start time is 5:30. 

We will travel to South Lakes for our playoff game on Friday. 

The anomaly of freshmen/JV games during a playoff week are a challenge for everyone, but we are one program. We will work hard to make it through yet another "unique" element of the 2020-21 season! Keep in mind, only four teams made the playoffs this year; while there are challenges we have earned the right to keep our season going! At the end of the day, look at your practice jersey: DMGB (it doesn't matter, get better)!

As always, thank you for your continued support of Chantilly Football!

Updates Week of March 22

Good Morning:

Once we hit our stride in the regular season, we do not need to send as many updates. This week, our sub-varsity levels will travel to Madison, and varsity hosts. 

Tickets

Please complete this form to request tickets for this week.

Senior Night

Senior Night will be celebrated this Friday. Please read Mr. Bowerman's note carefully. 

Volunteers/Sewing Help

We had a wonderful response to the water/detergent donation request. We are set on detergent, buy could use some cases of water. The trainers can't use the squeeze bottles due to COVID, so we use the bottles during every break in action and when players come to the sideline. 

If you or someone you know can help patch up a few jerseys ASAP (would need very fast turnaround), we have a handful of jerseys with tears. It doesn't have to be pretty, just enough to close the holes so that players won't be sent off the field. If you are interested/able to help, please email Coach Hamby at FDHAMBY@fcps.edu. 

Spring Break Practice

Varsity practice will be held during our normal window (starting at 3:30) on Monday and Tuesday. Due to the Thursday game, Wednesday will be a double session: 1-2:30 and 3:30-4:45.

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly Football!

Ticket Request and FCPS announcement

Good Morning:

This week we have all 60 tickets available to the program. Please request up to two using this link.

I am sure many of you saw the FCPS email regarding grading, specifically the No Mark and Pass/Fail marks. For those of you who are interested in pursuing athletics collegiately, please note that the sliding scale for eligibility, independent of college admissions, weighs those marks as "D". That can severely impact eligibility. Also, freshman grades are just as important as sophomore and junior grades. Just FYI!

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly Football!

NFHS Streaming Information

Please visit our "Files" page to find satreaming information for our games!

Additional information:

- The cameras are automated.  No humans direct them or control them.  They start when they are programmed to based on the event timing and stop when the predetermined time has ended.  Mention this because you may have a JV game that runs past it’s scheduled time and you would have to switch over to the Varsity stream to catch the end of the event.

 

- The cameras track motion.  Which presents some challenges staying with up action in fast moving sports like field hockey where the ball is small and things move quickly on the field.  Just means the camera is going to likely lag behind the play on the field.

 

- The field of view is usually wider than the action on the field/court which means you may not be able to easily recognize athletes in view.  There is limited zooming that occurs with these cameras.

Tickets for Centreville Games

Good Morning:

Tonight's freshman/developmental games tonight do not require tickets.

Tomorrow's varsity game does require tickets. Initially we were told that visiting teams will be allotted 60 tickets. The reality is that visiting schools get 60. We have been allotted 45. Cheer will get the remaining tickets. This means it will be less than 1 ticket per player since we are taking up to 66 players (our dress list is limited by bus numbers: 22 players per bus/3 busses). We share in your frustration. Please keep in mind that we are the messengers in this situation and that this logistic detracts from our ability to keep the main thing (the game), the main thing. Again, we apologize for the lack of tickets. 

Please use this form to indicate if you'd like to be in the pool for one ticket per player. We will do our best to accommodate. We will prioritize seniors and randomize whatever is left. 

We will share the streaming link as soon as it is available.

Updates for the Week of March 1: Freshmen and Developmental Chain Crews Needed

Good Evening:

This week marks the first sub-varsity games of the season. Our freshmen and developmental squads will host Centreville on Thursday night at Chantilly. We look forward to seeing our boys compete!

We will need volunteers to serve as the chain crew during games. If interested, please visit this link to volunteer. We need three for the freshmen and three for the junior varsity game. Any interested adult can serve in this capacity: moms, dads, grandparents, adult siblings, etc.

As the players know, we will not be dressing every member of our varsity game for this week's contest as we travel to Centreville on Friday. The travel list will be shared with the players by Thursday afternoon.

Updates for the Week of February 15

Good Evening:

As we shared with players on Friday, tomorrow's varsity practice (sophomores through seniors) will run from 2:30-6. Although not a traditional "two-a-day", the extended practice will afford us the opportunity to cover more material this week as we get closer to the start of our regular season. We will have a special teams period for 45 minutes, take a fifteen minute break, and then finish with our normal practice format. 

The freshman schedule will not change. 

Thank you for your generous support with our fundraisers, donated water and detergent. We truly appreciate it.

February 4 Update: Arrival Changes; Freshmen Postponed

Good Morning:

Today is the first day of practice for our Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors! Although we aim to follow our "normal" 3:30-6 pm timeline, we may need to reevaluate and adjust under these circumstances and depending on check-in. We will communicate updates as necessary.

This Saturday, practice will be held in the morning from 8-11 am.

Freshmen Practice Postponed

Unfortunately, due to our limited field situation (one turf on campus), the freshmen team will NOT start today. Our grass field is neither safe nor playable under these conditions. We do not anticipate that the grass field will be useable any time soon; in the coming days, we will reassess the field situation and develop a contingency plan. This plan may necessitate an off-campus site for practice (as we've done in the past) at a local park.

Under the best of circumstances, one turf field cannot house a program of our size. Under COVID protocols, we need to separate levels whenever possible.

We share your frustration and disappointment. 

Arrival Protocols Change

  • Staggered arrival (to the best of our ability)
    • "Kiss and Ride," please try to arrive no later than 3:15
    • Drivers and walkers, please arrive between 3:15 and 3:25
  • This map lays out how we must arrive in front of the locker rooms
    • Please use the north entrance (near the apartments) and drive around the back of the school. 
    • If you enter through the main entrance (near the kiosk) you will be stuck in track traffic. 
  • Complete the new form using this link. Do this before arriving.
    • You MUST HAVE WATER. You will be turned away without water!
    • No temp checks
  • Lower Locker Room (Fresh/Soph)
    • Enter the side door (rear near the back of gym/toward Mod)
    • Exit from the Locker room
  • Upper Locker Room (Junior/Senior)
    • Enter through the lobby
    • Exit from the locker room (fire escape)
  • Locker Room Reminders
    • Come dressed. You cannot change in the locker room. 
    • Nothing can be stored in the locker room except helmets and shoulder pads. 
      • Personal belongings cannot be stored in the locker room.
    • Today, Friday, Saturday is helmet only.
      • Grab helmet and exit.

Donations: Water and Detergent

Water is going to be a challenge since we are not permitted to refill during practice. If an athlete does not have water, they are supposed to be turned away from practice. Between acclimation periods and limited opportunities, we want to avoid that at all costs. 

We are seeking donations of cases of water from families. We would truly appreciate any contributions to help keep our boys involved. 

Typically, coaches have purchased detergent out of pocket to launder the varsity game uniforms and other cloth items. This year we need to wash more items, more often than in past seasons, and we would appreciate contributions to the detergent inventory. If you are interested in contributing, please send only Free and Clear detergent due to potential allergies among the roster. Boosters such as Oxy Clean are also needed for game uniforms.

If you are willing and able to help with water or detergent, please send it in with your athlete. We truly appreciate your help.

Fundraiser Update

As we have discussed, fundraisers are critical. Thank you for your efforts so far. Please note, I am not sending emails from the address stcurry@eteamsponsors. Those are automated by eTeamSponsor, and I am unhappy with the tone of those emails. We understand that times are difficult and that a strictly solicitation-driven fundraiser is hard for some. 

For those who were unable to join us for the meeting, here are the instructions they provided us with.

Our second fundraiser, will kick-off with a zoom meeting on Monday night at 7. Those who have met their eTeam goal are welcome to opt-out. Below are is information copied from the company we are working with for this effort. 

Non-Contact Fundraiser

  • App on your phone
  • No door to door selling
  • No collecting of money
  • No delivery of products
  • Can fundraise anywhere, any time, right from your couch

National Card

  • REAL VALUE!  
  • Over 600,000 places to save
  • Search deals by Location, Zip code, Items, Services, Stores, Food, Travel, etc.
  • $100 Travel Voucher-Hotel, Car Rental, Airline tickets.

Tonight's Virtual Meeting (1/28/21) ALL LEVELS

Good Morning:

To say that nothing is "normal" this year is a bit of an understatement! With that said, we will do our best to answer any questions that you might have regarding this season during tonight's meeting Thursday (1/28). The meeting will begin at 7 pm.

This meeting is for all members of the program: freshmen through seniors. Players are encouraged to participate as well. 

To allow for as much "Q&A" as possible, please submit questions using this form. Submit multiple times for multiple questions. 

As returning parents know, we normally like to pontificate about the merits of our program :) but tonight we will focus most of our energy on the protocols and unique elements of this season. We will probably mention PFit a few times as well :). 

The link to the meeting can be found here: Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Meeting.

Our workout sessions will remain the same. The 6 pm session will only run for 35 minutes. 

 

Fundraisers

Our first fundraiser is off to a great start! Although less than 38% of our program is participating at this point, those who are are doing a great job! We appreciate the support. 

If you have family or friends who want to support the effort, but would rather submit their donation directly to the school, they can simply make a check out to Chantilly High School memo: Football or send cash. 

Our second fundraiser will be the online discount card sale. More information to come. 

Spirit Pack

The link is active on Myschoolbucks. If you prefer to pay cash or check, that is fine. Please make checks out to Chantilly High School memo: child's name and spirit pack. We understand the hardships some families face and we will work with you as necessary. Please contact Coach Curry if your athlete needs that support. It will be kept confidential. We are happy to work with those in need. Please note that nothing is provided for us by the county or school, so anything that we cover comes from the program itself. Any contribution is helpful.

I have shared this many times previously, but it is my privilege to lead this program and I am excited to begin the 2020 season on February 4, 2021. 

As always, thank you for your continued support of Chantilly football!

Updates for the Week of January 25

Good Afternoon!

We are ten short days out from the start of the season! Thank you to all who have been attending our sessions and virtual meetings. Please see below for a few important announcements.

Fundraisers...Meeting TONIGHT AT 8

Our eTeamSponsor campaign begins tonight at 8 pm with our virtual launch meeting. To maximize efficiency, please have your list of emails ready to go before the start of the meeting. A fillable google sheet was posted on google classroom last week, and a printable form was linked to last week's update. Either option will work.  

Please see last week's blast for more information.

Our rep from eTeam will lead the meeting. Join at 8 pm using this link.

Parent Meeting 

There will be a virtual parent and player information meeting this Thursday at 7 pm. Mr. Bowerman will join the call to help provide some information about the upcoming season. A link to the meeting will be sent Thursday.

Required Equipment/Spirit Pack

In addition to school provided helmets, shoulder pads, and game uniforms, athletes need to purchase a 7-pad girdle and cleats. The girdle and cleats may be purchased anywhere you choose. This link to Amazon is an example of a seven-pad girdle. 

As was the case in previous years, this season's spirit pack can be purchased using "my school bucks." We will accept cash and check payments as well. Checks should be made payable to Chantilly High School, memo line "football spirit pack." In addition to the usual practice jersey, this year's spirit pack includes a hooded sweatshirt designed by a group of our seniors. The cost is $50. 

As returning players and families know, we have a program “dress code” that we expect athletes to follow. The dress code can be found here.

OPTIONAL Purchases via Sports Plus Spirit Store

Locally based Sports Plus Inc. has created an optional spirit store that can be accessed by clicking here.  Their online store includes two 7-pad girdle options. 

Workouts

Our sessions will be on Tuesday/Thursday until our season begins on February 4. The first session will run 4-6 pm and the second will run from 6-8 pm. 

Please remember to complete the questionnaire before arrival

Dress warm, bring water, and click here to sign-up! 

Required Paperwork

Please refer to our previous blast from Ms. Bishop to ensure that you have completed and submitted all required items BEFORE the start of the season.

Personal Fitness

Take P-Fit!

With course selection underway, the football staff believes it is important that we stress the benefits of taking Personal Fitness as an elective. We truly believe the overall benefits of taking this elective speak for themselves. Please see Why Personal Fitness or watch our video from the curriculum fair for more information.

We must continue to 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. That is the model for success. 

Our goal is to have 100% of our sophomores through seniors enrolled in Personal Fitness.

 

As always, thank you for your continued support of Chantilly football!

Updates for the Week of January 18

Good Evening:

We hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend! There is a lot to digest in this week’s update, so please read carefully and feel free to reach out to Coach Curry if you have any questions.

  1. Workout Sign-Up
  2. Required Paperwork
  3. Personal Fitness
  4. Important Dates

Workouts

Our sessions will be on Tuesday/Thursday until our season begins on February 4. The first session will run 4-6 pm and the second will run from 6-8 pm. 

Please remember to complete the questionnaire before arrival

Dress warm, bring water, and click here to sign-up! 

Required Paperwork

Please refer to last week’s blast to ensure that you have completed and submitted all required items BEFORE the start of the season.

Personal Fitness

Take P-Fit!

With course selection underway, the football staff believes it is important that we stress the benefits of taking Personal Fitness as an elective. We truly believe the overall benefits of taking this elective speak for themselves. Please see Why Personal Fitness or watch our video from the curriculum fair for more information.

It is imperative that we continue to 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.

That is the model for success. 

Our goal is to have 100% of our sophomores through seniors enrolled in Personal Fitness.

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 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 benefits as well.

  • Successful participation in Personal Fitness earns 200 points in our off-season point system.
  • 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. Exercise is proven to improve cognitive ability and both physical and mental health.
  • Personal Fitness is the best way for multi-sport athletes to participate in all the sports they love while simultaneously improving strength and athleticism
  • Football players are NOT asked 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 because of football nor will they find their time monopolized by off-season workouts!

Take P-FIT!

As we have discussed since 2017, if we truly want to continue to close the gap between Chantilly and the best programs in the area, we need football players to take Personal Fitness as an elective. If you only have room for one elective, make it Personal Fitness.  

When we played in three Region Finals in five years ('06, '08, '10) we had incredible enrollment in Personal Fitness. The class of 2020, which led the turnaround this past fall, committed to the weight room/Personal Fitness and the results are undeniable.

Commitment to Personal Fitness dwindled between 2010 and 2017 and so too did success on the field. Again, the results are undeniable. To be blunt, if you are serious about personal goals, take Personal Fitness. If you are serious about team goals, take Personal Fitness. Where you spend your time is what you value.

Important Dates

Unfortunately, dates for both practice and games will be very fluid this season. We are waiting on confirmation from FCPS and/or our Activities Office for many key dates, including equipment distribution. There are, however, a few dates that we would like to share once again: the first day of practice, game schedules (as of now), Spring Break reminder.

Practice

  • Practice will officially begin on 4 February. Time is TBD (likely 3:30-6:15). Prior to the first day, we will conduct a final paperwork collection and hopefully distribute equipment. We are awaiting confirmation on specific times.
  • Prior to the start of games, we will practice on Saturdays (likely two-a-days).
  • We will practice on President’s Day, teacher development days, and over spring break.
  • Film Sessions will occur virtually via Google Meet. Expectations do not change from previous years.
    • We will watch film in the evening during the week and the day after games.

Games

  • Game schedules are at the mercy of not only COVID, but also our official shortage.
    • We have been told schedules are likely to be adjusted to account for the shortage of referees.
  • Spring Break occurs during our regular season. Please plan accordingly.
    • Varsity plays Westfield
    • Freshmen and JV will take on Edison

Varsity Schedule

  1. 2/22 Edison
  2. 2/27 Bye (full week of practice)
  3. 3/5 @Centreville
  4. 3/12 @Hayfield
  5. 3/19 @Oakton
  6. 3/26 Madison
  7. 4/1 Westfield

Frosh/Developmental (JV) Schedule

  1. 2/25 Bye (full week of practice)
  2. 3/4 Centreville
  3. 3/11 Hayfield
  4. 3/18 Oakton
  5. 3/25 @Madison
  6. 3/31 @Westfield
  7. 4/5 @Edison

Required Equipment

In addition to school provided helmets, shoulder pads, and game uniforms, athletes need to provide their own 7-pad girdle and cleats. The girdle and cleats may be purchased anywhere you choose. This link to Amazon is an example of a seven-pad girdle.

As returning players and families know, we have a program “dress code” that we expect athletes to follow. The dress code can be found here.

As has been the case in the past, we will again set up a “My School Bucks” link to make payment for required purchases through the program simple. Players will purchase:

  • practice jersey
  • game day compression shirt
  • mouthpiece

A separate email will be sent later with that information.

Optional spirit wear will be available for purchase in the coming days. There will be two options for families who are interested in buying these optional items: one will be an online store through the company Sports Plus, and one option will be directly through the program. The latter option will see that 100% of the proceeds go back into the program.  

Fundraisers

Fundraisers are a necessary evil, sorry. We have three primary modes of income:

  1. eTeamSponsor Online Donation Campaign
  2. Virtual Discount Card Sale
  3. Heat Transfer Sales (tee shirts, sweatshirts, etc.)

Details for each fundraiser can be found below.

  • eTeamSponsor is a simple fundraiser. We simply ask for support via tax-deductible donations. We don’t like asking family and friends for financial support any more than you do, but this has proven to be a productive fundraiser over the last few years. Many of our neighboring rivals have already used this fundraiser this school year with great results. We will launch our online campaign next Monday at 7 pm during a live Google Meet. Our representative will walk us through the launch. Before that meeting, please fill out the donor form. The form can be found here.
  • The Virtual Discount Card Sale replaces our usual August coupon card sale. The company we are working with this year will provide us with a card that has discounts for national chains so we can expand beyond the usual neighborhood blitz. We will launch this fundraiser via a live meeting next Wednesday at 7 pm.
  • Heat Transfers/Cloth fundraiser. We use a heat press to transfer designs on cloth. We take orders from the community and fellow CHS programs. Our most recent order was the CHS Faculty Shirt for Dr. Poole.

We thank you in advance for your support of these fundraising efforts. And yes, we will fundraise all over again in the fall!  

Community Service Opportunity

Ms. Jasso, a sixth-grade teacher at GBW, has asked for volunteers to help facilitate discussion for reluctant readers. She will provide prompts for our volunteers to help make it easier to lead the meetings. The club will meet on Mondays beginning February 1 through the end of March.  Please complete the form if you are interested in volunteering. Ms. Jasso will verify community service hours.

Meetings are 10 to 10:30 am. The form to volunteer can be found here.

 

As always, we thank you for your continued support of Chantilly Football!

Winter Athletes Update; Virtual Meeting Tomorrow

Good Afternoon!

We are thrilled to have so much excitement about workouts and football in general!

If you are a winter athlete, we'd love to have you join, however, YOU CANNOT ATTEND TO OUR IN-PERSON SESSIONS!

Winter athletes include:

  • All Levels of Basketball (freshman, JV, Varsity)
  • All Levels of Wrestling (freshman, JV, Varsity)
  • All Levels of Track (freshman, JV, Varsity)
  • All Levels of Swim

We love ya and can't wait to work with you again, but you are not allowed to attend. Mr. Bowerman called me today asked me to remind winter athletes. There are a few reasons for this that include the potential increase of exposure that could shut us down. Also, we are simply trying to be respectful of your winter coaches.

If you are interested and available, we will hold a virtual meeting tomorrow afternoon at 3:15. Last week's meeting went very well. We will post the recording on classroom for those who cannot make it.

Everyone else, see you today!

Updates for the Week of January 4, 2021

Good Evening:

Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a wonderful, restful, safe Winter Break!

It is hard to believe that we are only 30 days from the start of football season! Please read below for updates. 

Workouts

Workouts will resume tomorrow afternoon. We will hold workouts on Tuesday/Thursday. Our times have been bumped back due to the start of winter sports. The first session will run 4-6 pm and the second will run from 6-8 pm. All of the protocols from fall remain the same. 

Dress warm, bring water, and click here to sign-up! 

Strength Training

As of right now, the CHS weight room is still not available for our use. Please do your best with what you have at your disposal: bodyweight, some equipment, lots of equipment. Feel free to reach out to Coach Curry for help. 

True AP has opened their weight room inside the NZone for use. It is a pay-per-use opportunity, and there is no monthly/weekly commitment. True AP trainers will supervise workouts and will be available for support. Athletes who take advantage of this opportunity will also have access to discounted rates for both personal training sessions and customized programs.  More information can be found here. 

We are neither affiliated with True AP program nor are we asking athletes to sign-up for this program. This is just another option for those who are interested in strength training at a facility outside their home.  

The F Word

Even during a modified season, fundraisers are still a necessary evil. 

Sample of expenses (some annual, some semiannual):

  • single football: $80
  • Hudl Sideline Replay: $1,800
  • single Helmet: $375-425 (depending on sales, style)
  • single set of Shoulder Pads: $275-325 (depending on sales, style)
  • single Jersey: $130
  • single pair of game pants: $99

Our largest and most profitable fundraiser, the in-person card blitz, is off the table for the foreseeable future. We are exploring fundraising options appropriate for these socially distant times, but one effort that will remain the same is the online donation campaign, eTeamSponsor

On Monday, January 25, at 8 pm we will have a virtual meeting with a rep from eTeam to set up our campaign. More information will follow in the coming weeks, but for a refresher or for those new to the program, the campaign will ask players to bring 20 emails of friends and family to the meeting to solicit donations. 

Our ongoing shirt printing (heat press) fundraiser has been greatly impacted by our current circumstances as we have fewer requests for shirts from groups within the CHS community. I will continue to press shirts as orders present themselves. A small, optional spirit store with 100% of proceeds going to football will be available in the coming weeks.  

Team Meetings

Our first virtual install meeting was very productive and we appreciate all the athletes who attended. A recording of the meeting is available on our Google Classroom site. We will have our second team meeting this Friday, January 8, at 3:15 pm. We will continue to have these meetings as we prep for our season. 

We look forward to seeing everyone this week!

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions or concerns. 

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly Football.

Updates for the Week of December 28

Good Evening:

We hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season and a safe and enjoyable break thus far! As you probably inferred, FCPS paused in-person activities for out-of-season sports for the break. As has been the case with everything this year, we will continue to ebb and flow as necessary. Much is out of our control.

Below you will find a few important dates for the coming weeks. Many details are being worked out, including the potential return to the CHS weight rooms, specifics for equipment distribution, etc. In the meantime, we will continue to control what we can to get ready for our season.  

Upcoming Important Dates

  • December 30 (this Wednesday, 10 am): Virtual Football Meeting
  • January 5: Return to on-campus workouts
  • February 4: First day of practice

Wednesday's Meeting

  • What: Virtual Chalk talk. Introduction to CHS football: base defensive and offensive alignment and schemes. 
  • Who: Anyone interested in playing football for CHS (9-12)
  • Where:  Link to the virtual meeting will be posted to Google Classroom and emailed via Google Classroom
  • When: 10 am
  • Why: To establish a basic understanding of our scheme and philosophy. To build a foundation on which we can build upon leading into the start of practice. 

In-Person Training Sessions

We will stick to our Tuesday/Thursday schedule when we return on January 5th. Times are likely to be bumped back slightly due to the logistics of the winter season. As of now, we will only be on the football field. As the season nears, we will transition to more skill-specific (football) work to prepare for practice. Strength and conditioning work should continue independently until we can return to the weight room. Resources are available on Google Classroom. 

Dress Code

For those who are new to the program, we have a simple dress code that can be found under our "Team Files" tab or by clicking here

Player Information and Leader Nominations

Athletes will find the forms for Player Information and Unit Leader Nomination on our Google Classroom site. Fifty-five athletes completed the Player Information, and twenty have submitted nominations. If they would like to update their responses, they can.

As always, thank you for your continued support of Chantilly Football!

Updates for the Week of December 7

Good Afternoon!

A little late this week! Hope everyone is well. 

Just a reminder, we have entered the Winter Sports Red period aka the "Dead Period." This period runs from 12/7 through 12/19. For those who are new to high school athletics, the dead period lasts for approximately two weeks at the beginning of each season (fall, winter, spring) and for one week in the summer (ordinarily the first week of July). 

To wrap up the coded language:

  • Red Days (Dead Period): only in-season sports permitted
  • Yellow Days: Strength and Conditioning
  • Green Days: Permitted, modified out-of-season practices

During this period, coach-led activities for out of season sports are prohibited. Consequently, we will not hold training sessions for the next two weeks.

If FCPS allows us to do so, and there is enough interest among coaches and players, we may resume sessions during our winter break. Under normal circumstances, we take off from the end of our season until we return to school in January. As odd as winter break workouts may sound, we are only 8 weeks away from the start of our season. Besides, we normally spend our summer break training four days per week and hold two camps. We will update our plans as soon as we learn more about what is permitted. 

Speaking of breaks, as we have previously shared, please remember our season will continue during spring break! Please plan accordingly. 

Our team Google Classroom site has been updated with resources and activities to include: 

  • our strength program and options designed to provide flexibility for athletes with limited/no equipment
  • Player information form and survey
  • Unit Leader nominations

Some of the items have carried over from our summer ELITE Club meetings. We ask that athletes who have previously completed the forms to review their submissions and update as necessary.

We wish all of our athletes the best of luck as they begin their winter season. Authentic competition develops the whole athlete and, more importantly, high school athletics provide students the opportunity to find value and a sense of belonging in the school community. Not to mention, it is a fun way to forge lifelong relationships. Get out there and compete!

To our winter athletes: stay healthy, compete, and have fun! Set the tone!

If families or athletes have any thoughts or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly Football.

Updates for the Week of November 30

Good Morning!

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! This trying year has been difficult, but I am grateful to work with your sons. As I have shared many times before, I truly count leading this program among my life's blessings. 

This is the final week of workouts prior to the Winter Sports Dead Period! The Winter Dead Period runs 12/7-12/19. During that time we will not conduct workouts. Following the Dead Period, we have Winter Break. We plan to conduct a few virtual sessions over Winter Break, but this week is likely the last chance for us to get together until we return in January.

Please do your best to make football a priority for 75 minutes on Tuesday and Thursday. 

Workout Sign-Ups

With our season slated to start in February, training outdoors and becoming acclimated to those conditions is important. We will not cancel sessions due to cold weather so please: Dress for the cold! 

Please click here to sign-up for this week's sessions. 

Again, if you cannot make it to a workout please reach out to a coach to let us know why. We are trying to capitalize on the few precious hours per week that we are allotted. As we often discuss, where you spend your time is what you value.

We understand these are trying times and that COVID induced anxiety is very high for many players and families. For those who are participating in our workouts, rest assured that we are not only following the guidelines set by FCPS, but we exceed the social distance guidelines by spacing athletes out by a minimum of five yards (15 feet), and we have yet to use shared equipment for training. We will continue to respect and support those players/families who are not comfortable with returning to training. 

*****New Dashboard for Athlete Registration--NEW FCPS REQUIREMENT*****

Please visit the new site Mr. Bowerman shared on the front page of Chantillysports.org. The county has just recently made this a requirement. Important material such as Concussion Education is completed on through this site. Please visit here to read the full description from the Activities Office.

Workout Sign-Ups

Please click here to sign-up for this week's sessions. Again, if you cannot make it to a workout please reach out to a coach to let us know why. We are trying to capitalize on the few precious hours per week that we are allotted. As we often discuss, where you spend your time is what you value.

We understand these are trying times and that COVID induced anxiety is very high for many players and families. For those who are participating in our workouts, rest assured that we are not only following the guidelines set by FCPS, but we exceed the social distance guidelines by spacing athletes out by a minimum of five yards (15 feet), and we have yet to use shared equipment for training. We will continue to respect and support those players/families who are not comfortable with returning to training.

10/29: Workouts Canceled

Good Morning:

Due to the weather, we are canceling the workouts scheduled for today.

If we were in-season, practice would, of course, go on rain or shine; however, with 12 weeks until we start, we are opting to keep our guys out of the cold rain!

If necessary, please use this afternoon to get caught up on your schoolwork. 

Our strength program, which can be easily modified for all possible scenarios (access to lots of equipment, access to some equipment, access to no equipment), has been available for some time now on our Google Classroom site, and athletes should be doing their best to complete strength sessions on their own three days per week.

Great American Rivalry Series

The Great American Rivalry Series is a national program partnered with the United States Marines and the Pro Football Hall of Fame to cover high school football across the country. The series travels to cover varsity football games deemed to be among the best rivalries in a given region. In 2019 they selected our content against Westfield to be among the games they covered. For 2020-21, they have once again chosen our game with Westfield to be a part of their series. A big part of their program is identifying a Scholar-Athlete from each participating team to reward with a chance at earning scholarship money through a voting contest.

Washington Post Story on Football Program's Culture

In case you missed it on Friday, here is the Washington Post story about our program. Without access to the weight room, Chantilly football grew stronger at home and apart. 

Building a solid foundation and culture is an ongoing process that takes time, trust, and commitment from all involved. We are grateful to have so many players and families buy-in to our program.

We are proud of our program and the strides we have made, but we recognize that this process is a journey, not a destination. Regardless, it is still nice when outsiders recognize the progress we've made. Keep working hard!

Good Afternoon!

Please click here to visit our Sign-Up Genius for this week's workouts. 

The Washington Post High School Sports section, All-Met Sports, has been running a special weekly series this fall in place of their typical weekend preview. They reached out to us about how we have stayed connected with ELITE Club meetings and workouts and will be visiting our workouts tomorrow to take photos for their story. While we recognize that many families and athletes will find this exciting, we also understand that not all families want to have images of their students published, and we, of course, respect that position.

If you are uncomfortable with All-Met Sports potentially photographing your athlete, please sit out tomorrow's sessionsWe cannot guarantee privacy or control who/what they photograph

Workout Attendance

Generally speaking, under normal circumstances, if a player is unable to attend a workout, we ask him to communicate their absence and reason with us, in advance if possible. Although these are uncertain times, we are preparing as though our season is guaranteed and would like to hear from our players when they cannot attend workouts.

Strength Program

We have shared strength plans with our players via our Classroom site and would like to see our players make a concerted effort to ramp up their strength work. The program is flexible, versatile, and fits all circumstances (equipment, some equipment, bodyweight only). 

We look forward to tackling our third week of training starting tomorrow!

Sign Up Genius for Workouts on 9/22 and 9/24

Good Evening:

Please click here to access our Sign Up Genius for this week's training sessions. To ensure that we do not exceed the 50 person capacity (including coaches), we have capped each session at 45 athletes. 

  • Session 1 will run from 3:30-4:45 on the football field
  • Session 2 will run from 5:15-6:30 on the football field

Check-In

To help our athletic trainers, Ms. Bishop and Mr. Williams, expedite the check-in process, we have staggered the groups by five minutes. Please do your best to arrive on time.

Training Sessions 

Each athlete should have the following for workouts:

  • Face Covering
  • At least 32 ounces of water
  • Cleats (recommended, but not required)

We will adhere to the guidelines set forth by FCPS while training together:

  • Face coverings when 10 feet of separation cannot be maintained
  • Complete the questionnaire before arrival
  • Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will not be permitted to participate

Objectives of Workouts

First and foremost, we hope to recapture some normalcy for our program. We look forward to reconnecting as teammates and players and coaches! 

We will make slow, steady, incremental progress. In other words, we know many of our guys have been working very hard on their own, but as a program, we are going to start slow and err on the side of caution. While these circumstances present us with many challenges and frustrations, we have also been giving the gift of time. We aim to take complete advantage of that gift. 

We cannot wait to start working with our guys! We hope to see many excited players tomorrow afternoon!

  • Our sessions will begin at 3:30 and 5:00 pm on Tuesdays/Thursdays. 
    • We will have staggered check-in times before sessions
    • At this point, athletes may only attend one session per day
  • Each session is limited to 50 total participants, including coaches.
  • Physicals must be submitted before participating!
  • Ms. Bishop will be at CHS this afternoon from 4-5:30 to collect paperwork.
    • You can also email her at kabishop@fcps.edu  
  • If you have not yet had a physical, you can visit places like CVS to get a sports physical as soon as today. 

To help with planning and to ensure that we do not have to turn anyone away, we will be sending out a sign-up genius later today to RSVP for a session.

Parent Survey! Please Complete ASAP

Good Afternoon!

As we shared before the start of school, our goal is to begin on-campus activities sometime during late September/early October. After speaking with the Activities Office, we are exploring the possibility of starting this month, potentially as early as next week

Before we commit to a time slot, however, we want to allow our families to provide some feedback regarding their preferred times. 

Please bear in mind that due to facility limitations, FCPS procedures, and the other CHS teams who will also begin training, our options are extremely limited at this time. Although we are not guaranteed to be granted our preferred time or facility by the Activities office, we still want to gauge the overall preferences of the program. Also, note that arrival and departure procedures are stringent due to COVID restrictions put in place by FCPS. We realize this may impact a family's time preference. 

As of now, our sessions will occur on Tuesday/Thursday.

Please take a moment to complete this brief survey and rank potential start times for our training sessions. We will evaluate your feedback and provide the office with our request. Again, we are at the mercy of the master schedule, and there are no guarantees, but we value your input and time!

These workouts are open to all freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors interested in playing football!

PLEASE SUBMIT RESPONSES before noon tomorrow. We apologize for the short notice, this is a fluid schedule that the office makes each week to accommodate all participating programs, and we need to submit our request.

**Remember, athletes must submit their physicals before they can participate!

**Feel free to share our information with friends and neighbors!

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly Football!

Updates September 2, 2020

 

Good Afternoon:

As we shared in our last full blast sent in June, we are eager to return to in-person activity. We have been waiting for FCPS guidelines to become less restrictive and for a season start date to be established by the VHSL. We are inching closer to a more productive set of circumstances for workouts, and a timeline has been established for the season.

The Season

The first day of practice will be February 4, 2021. The VHSL has created a condensed season which will consist of six regular-season games and reduced playoffs. There is talk of playing up to two additional Bowl games to provide athletes with more opportunities, but that has not yet been confirmed.

Please make note of the following regarding the season:

  • Athletes must be enrolled and passing 5 classes to be considered academically eligible
  • Football season will continue through Spring Break, so please plan accordingly
  • Our goal remains the same: to build upon the success of the 2019 season, the best regular season in 13 years.

Workouts

Typically, we do not condition six months out from our season. Rather we focus on getting bigger and stronger through our team strength program. We also focus on team/culture building through ELITE Club meetings. Many of our athletes also play other sports during that window, an endeavor we completely support. This off-season, however, has been far from normal, to say the least.

With a start date of February 4, 2021, conditioning is still not a priority at this point, however, we do want to get together in-person for the mental and physical wellbeing of our program! WE MISS OUR GUYS!

Between FCPS restrictions/guidelines, our limited facilities (indoors are still not allowed per guidelines, and the baseball/softball outfields are off-limits to football at CHS), and the number of other CHS teams who want to conduct sessions, we are unable to simply schedule our times for workouts. We will be working with the Activities office to create a schedule for all teams. Football faces the greatest challenges due to the size and scope of our program and training regimen. We need more sessions and coaches to conduct workouts due to the restrictions on numbers (max 50 people including coaches). We must remain flexible and remember this is simply the beginning of a return to football. We hope to have more information regarding the schedule in the coming days.

In the meantime, please be sure to take care of the required paperwork. Athletes cannot participate in workouts without first submitting their physical and emergency care card. 

  • Physicals and Emergency Care Cards must be submitted to our ATC Katelyn Bishop before participating in workouts.

Ms. Bishop will also be setting up a physical drop off on Wednesday, September 2nd, 4-7 pm, and on Thursday, September 3rd, from 11 am-2 pm outside of door 10. If you are unavailable to make the drop off you can email your VHSL Physical, as well as Concussion Education to kabishop@fcps.edu

Miscellaneous

    • Please be sure to enroll in our Google Classroom site with the class code: pqii7mv or by clicking this invitation .
    • We will continue to use Google Classroom to stay connected as a program.

Updates for the Week of June 29

We have waited to send an update with the hope that we would have more definitive information to share with our families. Below you will find information about the Virginia High School League's (VHSL) most recent release as well as information about workouts. 

Over the last few months, the region and state football coaches' associations have been meeting weekly to discuss the challenges of the pandemic and to work together to ensure our sport is prepared to move forward whenever it is deemed safe to do so. Our hope was that the VHSL would release a plan for fall sports following their meeting on June 25; however, according to their official Twitter account, the VHSL delayed its decision regarding the fall season and "did not put forth any recommendations for fall athletic schedules." 

The VHSL posted this link to a news report to clarify their position. Please visit here for more information. As you will see, everything from a modified fall season to postponing football until February is being discussed. 

Workouts

As you may know, FCPS approved a plan last week to allow student-athletes to resume conditioning on campus. As you can imagine, the guidelines are understandably restrictive and complex. Our staff has decided that we are not going to return to workouts until restrictions are either reduced/lifted and/or the start date for practice is identified. We believe the logistics are not practical for programs as large as football. We discussed these issues during our Northern Virginia Football Coaches Association meeting last week, and several comparable programs-Lake Braddock, Robinson, Westfield-are also sitting out conditioning for the same reasons.

This does not mean we are not preparing for football in the fall. 

We will continue to provide the same strength and conditioning program we would run if we were together on campus. We will meet virtually on Monday mornings at 10 to go over the programming for the week. We will explain the workouts and answer questions during those virtual sessions. Workouts will then be posted on our classroom site for athletes to reference during the week, as necessary. 

We feel that our athletes are better-served training on their own, with our support and guidance of course, until more feasible circumstances allow for group work at CHS. As Virginia enters Phase III on July 1, we hope that FCPS will adjust their guidelines so that large programs, such as football, can more readily train together on campus. Until then we will continue to work with our players virtually. Athletes are encouraged to train safely and adhere to all protocols recommended by health and government officials. 

We will also continue to engage our athletes virtually through our Google Classroom site, weekly ELITE Club leadership/culture meetings, and X/O sessions with Hudl.

We share your frustrations and disappointment, but as we discussed in last week's ELITE Club meeting, we will live the E+R=O principles (Event + Response = Outcome). We can't control outside forces (events) but we can control our responses, and how we respond will shape the outcome. We will continue to work hard together, and we will continue to build our culture together, even if we have to do so remotely.

As always, thank you for your continued support of Chantilly Football. Please feel free to reach out to Coach Curry with questions, thoughts, or concerns.

Updates June 10

Good Morning:

I hope this email finds all of our families well during these tumultuous times. To say it has been a crazy finish to the 2019-2020 school year is a bit of an understatement. 

Over the last few weeks, head coaches around the state have been meeting virtually to develop a statewide association to work alongside our local, district, and state athletic administrators. Our regional association has also been meeting. As I am sure you can imagine, there are lots of opinions being shared; one constant, however, is that we all believe in the power and importance of football as a tool to develop young men. We are working behind the scenes to do our part to ensure that we are prepared to hit the ground running whenever it is deemed safe to do so. 

Summer Activities

As of right now, we are still unable to convene workouts and other off-season team activities. We expect a statement from the VHSL about summer activities and the fall season by the end of June. We will share it as soon as the information is available. 

Physicals

It has been made abundantly clear that policies regarding physicals and participation will NOT be modified, so please make arrangements to have your physician complete the VHSL physical form as soon as possible. There is still hope that we will resume football activities sooner rather than later and physicals must be on hand prior to participation. Please get your physical completed ASAP.

E.L.I.T.E Club

Our E.L.I.T.E Club will continue to meet weekly to further develop program culture and leadership. Last week we were joined by Chantilly Alumni and one of the all-time leading rushers in program history, Marcello Squirewell. Marcello spoke on one of the main themes of this spring: the unique bond and brotherhood of high school football. We also touched on the current events affecting our nation, and how to improve our program.

Over the last three years, the E.L.I.T.E Club has worked to develop program core values. Those values are: 

  • Faith
    • Personal Faith
    • Faith in self 
    • Faith in teammates
    • Faith in Coaches
  • Love
    • Of Self
    • Of Family
    • Of Teammates
    • Of the process
    • Of the game
  • Grit
    • Unwavering Passion 
    • Unrelenting Perseverance
  • Service
    • To Family
    • To Teammates
    • To Chantilly High School
    • To Community
  • Discipline
    • Do what you’re supposed to do, when you’re supposed to do it, exactly as it is to be done. Repeat day in, day out. 
  • Commitment
    • To Family
    • To Improve
    • To Teammates

The program will continue to be inclusive and anti-racist. It is a privilege to be a part of Chantilly football, and these values make up the foundation upon which the program resides. 

If you would like to see the presentation from our May meeting, please logon to our Google Site to view the PowerPoint. The code to join is pqii7mv.

Player Survey

A few weeks ago, we asked that all athletes complete the player survey that was emailed to their fcpsschools.net account. We have received 45 responses so far. The survey has been added to our classroom site as well. If you have not yet completed it, please do so now. Some of the questions may seem odd, or simply worded, but to glean as much information as possible we wanted it to be clear. Please be honest. Your responses will help shape our E.L.I.T.E meetings as well as help the staff prepare for the 2020 season. 

Final Thoughts

With the uncertainty surrounding the season, we believe the most important factor in competing for a Region Championship likely will not be tied to the number of returning players, style of the scheme, or even physical ability. We believe it will come down to the program with the healthiest culture. The former qualities can be refined on the football field. The latter requires intentional effort and deliberate implementation, as well as reciprocity between staff and players. Please do your part and we pledge to do ours. 

If you have questions, thoughts, or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to Coach Curry at stcurry@fcps.edu.

As always, thank you for the continued support of Chantilly Football.

Updates for the Week of May 18

Good Evening:

Below you will find updates from the Virginia High School League (VHSL) regarding summer activities and the fall season. 

Below is an excerpt from the VHSL message to district and school administrations:

The VHSL will continue to follow all protocols and guidelines issued by the Governor, CDC, and the Virginia Department of Health. At present this means out of season practice and all activities this summer are canceled until further notice. The current relaxing of the Governor’s stay at home order applies only to businesses. Schools remain closed and in-school facility use is off-limits.

In short, at this point, we will not be conducting team workouts, camps, or green days this summer. While this decision was equal parts predictable and understandable, it is still disappointing to see that Covid-19 is continuing/will continue to disrupt our daily lives. 

All hope for football, however, is not yet lost! The VHSL released another statement today (the statement can be found in its entirety here):

The goal is to develop plans for multiple scenarios related to starting dates, safety measures for resuming practices, regular-season schedules, and state playoffs for fall sports.

“What we have been doing and will continue to do, is to strongly advocate for our student-athletes for a reopening of fall sports and activities. We know much has been taken away from our students by the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to advocate for them and the return of high school athletics and activities,”

Consequently, we should continue to prepare "alone, together" for football in 2020. Despite the unknown, it is our goal to be as prepared as possible to play a season this upcoming school year and build upon the successes of 2019. As a result, we will be hosting a virtual E.L.I.T.E Club meeting this Friday at 3 pm. More information, including a player survey to be completed before the meeting, will be available on our Google Classroom page. In addition to discussing leadership and culture, we will also address expectations and options for training during the building closure.

We look forward to "seeing" everyone at our meeting on Friday. 

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly football.

Updates for the week of May 4

 

Good Afternoon:

It was great to see a number of our guys last Friday at our virtual check-in. If you could not make it, please do not worry. It was a very informal hangout that came about with only a few hours' notice. 

Yesterday I sent an email to our athletes through our team Google Classroom site that covered the same information. This will be the predominant mode of communication we will use when discussing information with players. We will continue to disseminate information (general updates, parent information, etc.) through Chantillysports.org as well, but direct coach-player communication will occur through our Google site.

Please be sure to join using this code: pqii7mv.

On our classroom site, players will find information about recruiting and workouts. As we mentioned last week, we are going to not only hope for the best-case scenario concerning our season but also prepare for the best-case scenario. We need to assume that we will have a regular full-season, therefore, we will prepare accordingly. 

Workouts

We have provided multiple options for at-home workouts on our site. Players who have experience training with us will recognize the weight lifting options and can/should implement them in their training if their equipment and space allow. We understand that many, if not most, of our athletes, will have limited to no equipment at their disposal. We have two options for athletes in that category: one option is presented in the PowerPoint that has been uploaded to the site. I put the PowerPoint together with bodyweight training in mind. For the athlete's reference, there are videos/gifs of movements, a template for how the workout should be sequenced, and a corresponding spreadsheet to keep track of progress.  

The second option is to register for free with TrueAP. TrueAP is a company that we have used over the years for summer conditioning and agility/speed work. Mr. Bowerman purchased a license for TrueAP's training/their app at the beginning of the year for Girls Soccer and Mrs. Bibbee's female Personal Fitness class. TrueAP has extended the license to football and has created a bodyweight program for us to use while schools are closed. I encourage all of our inexperienced lifters and those who do not have access to equipment to explore this option. Members of the class of 2023 and 2024 (current and rising freshman) are highly encouraged to look into this program due to our limited time training together. TrueAP is going to host an informational meeting today at 3 pm through a secure Blackboard site to discuss the program with athletes and parentsThe link to the meeting is posted on Google Classroom. TrueAP will also offer additional programs tailored to an individual's equipment and space at a discounted price. That is, of course, optional. 

Recruiting

Over the last calendar year, we have hosted over 130 college programs to discuss our players and the recruiting process. As a result, the class of 2020 has over 10 players committed to play football in college across all levels of the NCAA. Despite closures, the recruiting process for our current players is well underway. To assist us in the recruiting process we ask our athletes to complete a google form (available on classroom) to collect basic information. The form is open to all of our players regardless of playing time at the varsity level. The form serves as a great exercise for younger athletes to begin preparing for the process. This includes:

  • emphasis on grades! The better the student the more "recruitable" you will be and the more options you will have. Grades from your freshman and sophomore year can and WILL help or hurt you. You cannot wait to do well. 
  • thinking about where (geographically) they would like to attend school. There is a link on the form to a database of programs based on state or territory (Mexican and Canadian schools). 
  • an honest reflection of potential to play at various institutions and levels: e.g. dream vs reality. We encourage the dream but prepare for reality. There is great "grown man" football across the spectrum of levels. Less than 6% of high school football players are recruited to play at any level 1-3. Fewer than 2% of those players will play Division I.
  • establishing Hudl highlight tape of VARSITY film. If you have not yet established a varsity film, that is okay! You will have the chance to compete for that soon enough. 
  • establishing a Twitter handle for recruiting. Due to NCAA communication rules, this is a necessity for coaches to communicate with players. They also evaluate a player's "love of the game" "seriousness" and "character" based on what is posted.

Younger players can still complete the form, just leave information for varsity experience blank for now.

I hope to provide parents and athletes with virtual meetings in the next few weeks to discuss the process. In addition to sharing information from a coach's perspective, my goal is to have a few members of the 2020 class (and their parents share) their experiences with the recruiting process. More to follow shortly. 

ELITE Club

For those new to our program, we typically hold monthly leadership/culture meetings in the offseason. We call them E.L.I.T.E Club meetings: Empowering Leadership Individually Team Emphasis. The closure of schools has derailed the typical format, but we are going to proceed with the meetings soon, possibly in a weekly or bi-weekly format. We will update shortly.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions. 

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly Football!

Updates for the week of April 27

Good Morning:

It has been a while! We hope that all of our families are healthy and well during this challenging time. As a program, we know that there has been a great deal of uncertainty and events of recent weeks that have affected all of us, even if unevenly. While the world is certainly a different place than it was on March 12, the football staff would like to begin offering a sense of normalcy and distraction for the members of our program. 

We recognize that there has been a lull in communication and activity and that some may be wondering why we haven't done more. We have intentionally waited to reach out for several reasons, chief among them is the fact that we wanted to allow our program's families ample time to adjust to the changes in their daily lives. While fielding the most competitive team possible is among our top priorities, supporting our players and families comes first. We simply did not view the closure of schools and the cancelation of spring athletics as an opportunity to be seized for the benefit of football. We wanted to allow everyone an opportunity to adjust to our current circumstances. We have also waited for FCPS to finalize plans for distant learning which would clarify which platforms we will have the ability to use for remote meetings. In case you haven't followed the news, the latter has proven to be somewhat problematic. :)

While plenty of uncertainty remains, we believe that at this time we should "officially" return to preparing for football in the fall. While we obviously cannot control the impact of the virus, we can control how we prepare for our eventual return to football, hopefully, sooner rather than later. 

Players, if you have not already done so, please join our team Google Classroom page with the code pqii7mv. The following will be posted to our team Google Classroom page in the coming days:

  • Workout Options based on available equipment and space
    • Bodyweight Only
    • Equipment Based
    • True AP App (free for players)
  • College Interest Form for Recruiting
    • Virtual Player and Parent Info Meeting TBD
  • E.L.I.T.E Club Information

We have dearly missed working with the young men of our program and look forward to "seeing" everyone soon. 

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly Football.

Updates for the Week Of March 1

Good Afternoon!

As of tomorrow morning, the Dead Period is over! Coach Guf and Coach Romine are looking forward to working with our non-PFit guys in the morning.

We take attendance for each session. As we have done in the past, we will continue to share recorded attendance with families and athletes for the sake of transparency. Please visit here to see our Winter Workout attendance. The document is sorted three ways: alphabetically, by total attendance, and by grade level. Please remember, if they are enrolled in Personal Fitness, we do not expect athletes to attend before/after school weight training. 

Attendance is based on Charger Time and before/after school sessions that occurred between January 6 and February 21. 

  • In January there were 10 sessions held before/after school and 8 during CT. 
  • In February there were 8 sessions held before/after school and 7 during CT. 

Congratulations to our top five attendees:

  1. Jake Bartolomeo Sophomore (2023) 23
  2. Liam Turner Sophomore (2023) 20
  3. Aidan Chow Junior (2022) 19
  4. Alex Carlson Sophomore (2023) 18
  5. Jason Vail Junior (2022) 16

While a positive culture is the soul of a successful high school football program, strength training is the lifeblood. We encourage participation in other sports, but athletes must lift year-round to be competitive. If you are not in PFit and are currently playing a spring sport, you need to find a way into the weight room to lift with football. Sessions are held Monday/Wednesday after school 3:10-4:10, Friday morning before school 6:50-7:50, or during Charger Time. 

In the future, take Personal Fitness and the time to lift is carved out for you every other day!

Passing League Registration is now open on Evergreen Sportsplex's website. As was the case last spring, we'd like to enter three teams: a rising freshman/sophomore team and two older teams. Visit here to sign-up for our annual league. 

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly Football!

Updates for the Week of February 23

Good Evening:

Congratulations Andres Sagastume, AJ Crews, and the wrestling team for an incredible season. Both Andres and AJ capped off their decorated careers as State Runners-Up for their respective weight classes. Andres and AJ represent the best of CHS: great student-athletes and great young men.

Spring Dead Period

We want to wish everyone trying out for a spring sport good luck as the season starts tomorrow. This is also a reminder that with the start of the spring season we are currently on a "Dead Period" from February 24 through March 5, which means there are no workouts after school or on Friday morning. The weight room will be open during Charger Time. Workouts will resume for the morning session on March 6. Athletes in Personal Fitness are, of course, unaffected by the dead period.

Personal Fitness

Speaking of Personal Fitness, as we emphasized at the banquet in December, if we truly want to continue to close the gap between Chantilly and the best programs in the area, we need football players to take Personal Fitness as an elective. If you only have room for one elective, make it Personal Fitness.  

That is the model for success. 

When we played in three Region Finals in five years ('06, '08, '10) we had incredible enrollment in Personal Fitness. The class of 2020, which led the turnaround this past fall, committed to the weight room/Personal Fitness and the results are undeniable.

Commitment to Personal Fitness dwindled between 2010 and 2017 and so too did success on the field. Again, the results are undeniable. To be blunt, if you are serious about personal goals, take Personal Fitness. If you are serious about team goals, take Personal Fitness. Where you spend your time is what you value.

Important Dates

The important dates for 2020 are available here. The dates include Passing League, Camps, and our 2020 schedule.

Read Across America

Lees Corner Elementary is looking for volunteers to participate in Read Across America on Monday, March 2 at 8:20 am. If you are interested in participating, please fill out this form. This is a great way to give back to the community!

Fairfax Communities of Trust: Eyes Up & Phones Down Event

Good Morning: Please see the message below from Carrie Reynolds, FCPS' Coordinator; Health, Physical Education, & Family Life Education. There is an upcoming optional event to promote safe driving practices. Kurt Sporkman (Drivers Education Teacher) is the point of contact at CHS. If you are interested in having your child participate, please have them visit him in the Driver's Ed room or contact him at KASporkmann@fcps.edu 

 

Good afternoon,

 

On Tuesday, March 3rd Fairfax Communities of Trust will be sponsoring Eyes Up & Phones Down at the nZone in Chantilly.  The goal of the event is to raise awareness of the dangers of distracted and impaired driving among teens. 

 

As students arrive they will witness a mock crash scene and first responder response.  After opening remarks, students will rotate with their school group through multiple stations.  It is anticipated that volunteers from the police department and other community organizations will join with school groups to engage and interact with students throughout the event.  Your school SRO will also participate with your school group.

 

Stations:

  • Distracted Driver Safety Obstacle Course – Students with a driver’s license or permit will be able to experience distracted driving while navigating golf carts through a course.  Other students will be  passengers creating distractions for the driver.  In addition, driver’s may experience driving with impaired vision goggles or receiving text messages while driving.
  • First Responder Vehicle Display & DUI Experience – For students without a license or permit, they will be able to experience driving with impaired vision goggles while operating a peddled vehicle.  All students can engage in an impaired driver test while wearing impaired vision goggles.  Public safety officials will interact with students with specialty vehicles each may use.
  • Impaired Sports Activities – Students will participate in sports activities while wearing impaired vision goggles.  Volunteers from the FBI, Auxiliary Police, and Citizen Advisory Committee with engage students in discussions of impaired driving.
  • Preventing Accidents Through Education & Conversations – Several agencies will be simulating real-world driving situations to discuss with students.  This might include work-zone safety, transportation to a trauma center and what happens there, what to do during a traffic stop, what to do if the vehicle breaks down, and what can teens do to help their community.
  • Career Experience – Law enforcement, first responders, and public safety officials will share with students how they got involved in their career, why they are committed to protecting teens, the steps necessary to get into the career field, and opportunities for teens to learn more or get involved in specific careers.
  • Lasting Impacts Education & Conversations – Students will view 2 videos – A Sudden Change of Plans and Hero’s Heart and will then participate in a follow-up discussion.

The event will begin at 7:00 am and end at approximately 12:00 pm.  Due to space capacity, 50 students per school will be able to attend.  Bus transportation and lunch will be provided.  There will also be giveaways throughout the event.

 

Thank you for helping to make this event a success.

The Off-season is here!

Good Evening and Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a restful, enjoyable break!

Here is the first update of 2020!

The offseason officially starts tomorrow. Our weight room days will be Monday and Wednesday afternoons during the first weight room block 3:10-4:10 pm and Friday morning from 6:50-7:50 am

A few notes regarding workouts:

  • All football players are expected to lift weights throughout the year regardless of playing another sport. This is the norm at the top programs in the district, county, region, state, and country. If you expect to compete with the best teams, you must commit to the weight room the way they do.
    • Athletes in Personal Fitness are not expected to attend these workouts!
  • Athletes should wear athletic clothing and shoes.
  • Workouts begin promptly at 3:10. 
  • As usual, attendance will be tracked via a Google Form and QR code. 
  • Athletes should attend two strength sessions per week minimum.
  • Attendance will contribute to the offseason leaderboard.
    • Incentives will be revised for the 2020 season and shared soon. 
  • In addition to the sessions before/after school, athletes may also elect to attend workouts during Charger Time. 
  • The commitment to the weight room was tied directly to the turnaround we experienced this past fall. That commitment must be renewed each year. 

The best way to meet weight room requirements is to take Personal Fitness (weight training). Class selection is just around the corner: sophomores through seniors should take Personal Fitness. 

We cannot wait to get back to work! See you tomorrow!

Program Ceremony 12/19/19

Good Evening: 

It has been a busy and exciting week and a half of recruiting at CHS! Since the contact period opened last Monday, we have hosted 27 colleges interested in recruiting our players. The programs range from Division I Power 5 to Division III.

Circling back to the blast sent three weeks ago, the banquet will be held next Thursday evening (12/19/19) at CHS. As was the case last year, if there are enough parents/guardians interested in organizing a "banquet" celebration to include food and drink—catered or potluck—we will include that in the festivities for the evening. If you are interested in helping make that happen, please contact Coach Curry directly. We have reserved both the cafeteria and library to provide the appropriate accommodations for the evening. If we were to include food, there would be a social hour in the cafeteria prior to the awards ceremony which will be in the library. If there isn't enough interest in the food portion, we will have an awards ceremony in the library.

The evening is meant for all members of the program including current freshmen. In addition to celebrating the most successful regular season in 12 years, 6 All-Region Honorees, 15+ All-District Honorees, and the 2019 season, we will discuss some important information regarding the off-season.

Please attend if possible. 

The young men of Chantilly Football are a special group. We are thankful for the opportunity to work with them each day!

Updates for the week of 11/18

Good Evening:

Sadly, this is the final weekly update of the 2019 season. Please excuse both the direct tone and simplicity of this blast. Like many of you, we are disappointed, drained, exhausted, and heartbroken.

A “Save the Date” reminder will be sent in the coming days for the program-wide (freshman included) banquet.  For planning purposes, the banquet is likely to be either Thursday 12/12 or Thursday 12/19.

All members of the 2019 varsity/developmental teams are expected to attend the team meeting and equipment collection tomorrow after school: this includes the 12 or so players who left the team prior to the start of the playoffs. Simply put, if you haven’t returned your equipment, you are expected to attend. The meeting and equipment collection is a part of our season, and winter athletes are expected to attend.

  • What: Team Meeting
  • Where: Weight Room
  • When: Monday 11/18 at 3:05 pm
  • Why: End of season meeting, survey, voting, equipment collection, locker cleanout

After the meeting, we will collect equipment. Missing items will become financial obligations and are the responsibility of the player (cost of replacement is listed next to each item and is only an estimate based on spring 2019 prices). Players have been issued the following equipment and are responsible for its return:

  • Helmet: 400
  • Shoulder pads: 300
  • Game Jersey: 125
  • Game Pants: 100
  • Lock: 5
  • Knee pads: 8

In addition to the meeting and equipment collection, players will clean out their lockers. Items that are left behind at the end of the afternoon will be thrown out. This includes the lockers of players who do not show up tomorrow. Again, plan to attend to ensure you get credit for turning in your gear, to avoid accruing significant financial obligations, and to ensure you have all your personal belongings. If necessary, plan to bring a bag for items. We will not have bags to give players. The goal is to be done by 4:30.

2019 was an incredible season, there is much to be proud of and celebrate, and we hate to see it end.

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly Football.

  • No backpacks or other bags will be allowed in the stadium.  (Students and Adults)
  • The purpose for students who attend our varsity football games is to watch the game, cheerleaders, band and dance team.

  • The gates to the stadium will open at 6:00 pm.

Updates for the week of September 22

Good Afternoon,

After a wonderful week of Charger football, here is a look ahead for the week of September 22.

  • All Varsity players (sophomores through seniors) need to complete the faculty escort form for the homecoming pep rally by the end of school tomorrow. The form is available on our google classroom site and can also be found here.
    • So far, 24 members of the varsity have completed this task to honor the faculty or staff member they believe has helped them grow as a person.
  • Freshman/Developmental will host Edison on Thursday at CHS.
  • Varsity will travel to Edison on Friday.
  • Varsity players will need to report back to CHS by 4:15 on Friday.
  • Busses will leave as close to 4:30 as possible

The young men of our program have been tremendous to work with and we can't wait to get back to work tomorrow. 

As always, thank you so much for your support of Chantilly football! Have a great week, and Go Chargers!

Reminders:

Please continue to volunteer whenever/wherever possible. The link to the sign-up genius can be found here. 

Action Photos

A number of photographers capture our games. The work of Phil Dolinger and Jeff Reynolds can be found here. Jim Madaj's can be found here.

Girdles

As we shared in the spring, we are phasing out issuing knee pads due to NFHS uniform requirements. By fall 2020, all players will have to replace their 5-pad girdles with 7-pad girdles. Essentially, modern uniform pants are cut higher than they were in the past and officials are zeroing in on pant length and sending players off the field if they deem uniform pants are not covering their knees. We share this with you today because Friday night served as an example of why we are going this route; we had players sent off the field (through no fault of their own) due to this rule. While it is subjective and we are at the mercy of individual officials, the 7-pad girdle should make this rule emphasis a moot point.

If you or a donor would rather give directly to the school account, checks can be made out to Chantilly High School with "Football" on the memo line. 

We are requesting that players who came out to football after the fundraiser day join us in this effort. Those players will also receive the fundraiser cards this week. Please do your part to help us raise funds to put us on par with our competition.

Langley Gameday

Sorry for the late alert. We want to clarify tomorrow afternoon's schedule: Langley has the potential to be a long ride on a school bus, therefore, we will leave as soon as all three buses arrive (4:30...hopefully). Because we know quick turnaround can be tough on families, we will give players the option to stay after school (for those new to the program, players will typically go home at dismissal). Due to liability, supervision, etc, if they choose to stay, they must be in the locker room by 3:30 or with a teacher who must provide a note. All players must be in the locker room by 3:45. We will only offer this on game days when traffic has the potential to be particularly bad. 

Compression shirts were distributed tonight. If you have yet to pay for the spirit pack (practice jersey and compression shirt), please do so when possible. Check to CHS, myschoolbucks, or cash: $40 for both. If there are financial hardships, please communicate directly with Coach Curry. Compression shirts will be worn tomorrow during the game. 

If you would like to receive a remind text alert about when the busses will arrive back at CHS, please revisit the recent message about the new remind codes based on grad year. 

The game day dress code is in effect for tomorrow: shirt and tie. Feel free to review our rationale here

On another note, Developmental looked fantastic tonight! Great job boys!

Thank you for your support!

Updates for the week of September 2

Good Evening:

We have a few updates for this week. 

Please see last week's announcement for information about receiving text message alerts. The company we use, Remind, changed terms of service and we had to create new "classes". 

Freshmen and Developmental teams will scrimmage Langley at CHS on Thursday. 5:30/7pm respectively. 

We just received word today from Osbourn Park that they will host the freshman team for their first regular-season game on Monday, September 9 at 6 pm. Osbourn Park does not have a Junior Varsity team, therefore, our Developmental team will not have a game next week. Mr. Bowerman is reaching out to see if there is another school looking for a JV game, but as of now, there will only be a Freshman and Varsity game next week.

Please continue to support our fundraising efforts. Several young men/families have contributed more than their fair share, and we truly appreciate their support! Unfortunately, we still have a large percentage of players who have yet to reach even 50% of the goal for the coupon cards. The eTeamsponsor fundraiser has not yet yielded the results we hoped. Trust me when I say, we want this "F-Word" (fundraising) to go away for this season as badly as players and families do, but we need all players and families to contribute in order for that to happen. 

If you have secured a sponsor (and submitted the information on the google form) I will be emailing you shortly with information regarding that fundraiser. Suffice it to say, FCPS got involved... 

Patsy Pogorelc has created a sign-up genius for the various roles that need to be filled throughout the rest of the season. Please take a look and chip in where you can. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b4da5aa22a02-2019

Our online donation campaign has been sending automated emails in a tone that does not reflect the culture of the program or our appreciation of your support. I apologize. I didn't realize the messages were created/sent. Emails from the address stcurry@eteamsponsors.com are NOT from me. Please disregard the emails, especially If you cannot/will not/or are exempted from the fundraising.

Schedule

Varsity/Developmental will travel to Yorktown on Thursday for our second scrimmage. Like the Stone Bridge scrimmage, the focus of the scrimmage will be the varsity roster, however, the plan is to get the developmental group work as well. That is, of course, at the mercy of the weather, the host team, and the officials. Playing time is never guaranteed in any setting, however, our goal is to help develop all players we deem physically and mentally ready for live competition. 

Holiday Schedule

  • Friday: Varsity/Developmental report to CHS at 9 am. Practice 9-10:30.
  • Saturday: Off
  • Monday: practice 8-10:30...Game Week!

We will have no practice on Saturday!

Tomorrow night is the Chipotle Spirit Night at Franklin Farm! Bring the flyer (or show on your phone to help Tilly Football!!

Thank you for supporting the football fundraiser blitz day! We have 111 players currently on our roster in grades 9-12. Of the 111 players, 48 met the goal of selling $200 worth of cards. Six players met the sponsor benchmark and were exempted from the blitz day. Three young men procured sponsors and sold cards.   We will be extending the sale of the cards and expect the 62 players who fell short of the goal to continue to sell. Saturday provides a great opportunity for players to hit local shopping centers to make an additional push. We expect the 32 players who brought in under $100 to bridge the gap between their sales and the $200 goal.  Please remember we received $0 from CHS, FCPS, or our boosters. Unfortunately, fundraising is very important.

If you have procured sponsorships, please be sure to fill out the form found here. It is not too late to add sponsors to the 2019 season!

Players and families may continue to share the eTeamSponsor information with friends and families to support the online fundraiser. By the end of the week, we will have a Myschoolbucks link active for those who wish to circumvent the third party and donate directly to the program.

Please hydrate and eat properly during the day and prior to practice!

The drive will start around 10:30/11 and players can return whenever they’ve finished selling their quota of cards. Typically, parent volunteers are appreciated. I will provide players with more information once we have it available.
       
  • 8/19: 3rd Practice- 3:00 pm- 5:15 pm
    • We are switching to an evening start time (which will be the practice time for the remainder of the year). Teachers will be in training all morning which requires us to move the start time back.

Note. This program adheres to a dress code which Coach Curry articulates here: https://chantillysports.org/library/files/chantillysports_6/files/Chantilly%20Football%20Dress%20Code1.pdf

Updates for the week of July 28

Good Afternoon!
It is hard to believe that our pre-season will wrap up at the end of this week! Our guys have done a phenomenal job this summer.  Please continue to send in paperwork this week. Remember athletes are not permitted to participate without a valid physical on file. 

After our final session with TrueAP on Thursday morning, we will have a team meeting during the window usually reserved for lifting (9:30-10:30). We encourage all athletes who are in town and interested in playing football to attend. Please do not worry if you are out of town or cannot make the meeting. Attendance is not a prerequisite to participate come August 5! We want to tie up loose ends and discuss some elements regarding August practice before next Monday.

Sponsorship Information

Last week we shared information about our newest fundraiser: corporate sponsorships. The levels of sponsorship can be found here. Please note a change from last week's proposal: to encourage maximum participation, any athlete who brings in $500 in sponsorships will have the option to opt-out of our traditional fundraiser (the initial benchmark was $1,000). 

Once you have secured a sponsor, please fill out this form. This form must be filled out for each sponsorship an athlete secures. You may upload the company's logo/text to be printed through the form or email it directly to Coach Curry (stcurry@fcps.edu). 

Thank you for supporting Charger football!

Updates for the Week of July 21

Good Afternoon:
We hope everyone has had a great weekend so far and have been able to keep cool in this sweltering heat.

We are entering our final two weeks of pre-season strength and conditioning. We have had a great summer so far, but let's make sure we finish strong! If you are in town you should be at workouts!

Paperwork

Please do not wait to complete and submit the paperwork required for participation. For more information and specific links to the requirements, please visit here

Fundraisers

As we have discussed in previous meetings, football is an EXPENSIVE endeavor and we are financially autonomous. We are unable to rely on outside sources for any of our expenses, therefore, fundraising is a necessary evil for us to function as a program. As a result, all members of the program are expected to participate in our fundraising efforts. 

We will once again sell coupon cards and run an online donation campaign. Additionally, our heat transfer fundraiser will continue to expand. We understand and empathize with families who dread fundraising. We also know that fundraisers often tax the same friends and family members. As a result, we are looking to add a new source of income for the program that goes beyond our neighbors, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc. and taps into the greater community at large. Specifically, we want to forge a partnership between Chantilly football and local businesses, restaurants, and corporations.

With our ability to print materials such as shirts, sweatshirts, drawstring bags, etc. we can provide simple, effective advertisements in exchange for a small sponsorship. To encourage participation in the recruitment of local businesses, we will reward players (and their families :)) who secure $1,000 in sponsorships by exempting them from participating in the coupon card and online fundraisers. 

The sum of the $1,000 benchmark can come from a single source or can be spread among as many as it takes to reach the goal.  Both our coupon card blitz day and online campaign kick-off will be on picture day, August 17. Athletes will have until the morning of August 17 to submit the donations and company information. 

We will provide a tiered system for interested businesses, but they will essentially have the opportunity to secure space for their logo to go on practice jerseys, compression shirts, game day "Beat (insert school)" shirts that can be given to the student section, etc.  Parents/guardians, if you have a company and would like to get involved, your sponsorship will, of course, be credited to your son! We think this is a great way to not only alleviate the pressure of fundraising but to also create relationships with the restaurants and businesses in and around our community. 

This could be a great way for us to not only meet our program's needs but to also forge working relationships with companies in the Chantilly area! We hope you take advantage of this chance to avoid the "traditional" fundraiser!

If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to Coach Curry.

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly football!

Updates for the Week of June 9

Good Evening:

This is a busy week for Chantilly Football! 

Combo Camp

Combo camp kicks off tomorrow at 2 pm. Combo camp is divided into two sessions. The first session is geared toward skill players and focuses primarily on the passing game. This session runs from 2 until 3:15. At 3:15, offensive and defensive linemen will join us for the second session as the emphasis will shift to the run game.

Monday we will wear only helmets; we will be in "shells" (helmets and shoulder pads) Tuesday through Thursday. Players should wear mouthpieces each day. Returning players should wear their practice jerseys from previous seasons. We will have jerseys to loan players new to the program. Parking is extremely limited and players/families are encouraged to carpool. Additional information from Gameday Camps:

  • Bring your own water. No Water available on premises.
  • Parking is not allowed in other warehouse parking lots. They will tow violators. 

Meeting

Our pre-summer meeting will take place tomorrow, Monday, June 10, at 7 pm. Notice the change of location: we will be meeting in the CHS LIBRARY. We hope to see all of our athletes and a parent/guardian to review the summer schedule, expectations, requirements, etc. 

Wilkins Shoe Center (Optional Cleat Fitting)

For those who are interested in purchasing their cleats through Wilkins Shoe Center, tomorrow they will once again visit CHS. Wilkins Shoe Center is located in Winchester and has a great reputation for its “old-school” customer service. The cleats are offered at a significant discount (15-20 dollars) from most retail outlets and Wilkins will guarantee their quality. In other words, if an issue arises they will replace the cleat at no cost to you, no questions asked. Wilkins will be available for fittings starting at 6 pm in front of the CHS library. They accept cash, check, and credit. 

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow night!

Thank you!

Good Afternoon:

The location of next week's parent AND player meeting has been changed. We will move to the cozier confines of the CHS library! We look forward to seeing all the players and parents/guardians on Monday evening. 

Today we will begin equipment distribution for camp. The equipment distributed this week will be the equipment the players use for the season. Upon receipt of helmet's and shoulder pads, players will sign for the equipment and will be responsible for replacement should it be lost, stolen, or not turned in upon the conclusion of our fall season based on the cost of replacement (2020 price).

Equipment will only be issued to players who are registered for next week's Combo Camp.  Later in the summer, we will have separate distribution days for those who are not attending next week. 

Equipment will be issued today based on an athlete's standing on Off-Season Leaderboard. Today, the top 25 point earners will get helmets, shoulder pads, and a mouthpiece. 

To alleviate the difficulty of getting back to CHS for rising freshmen, those who have registered and attend today's workout will also receive their gear. 

The rest of the registered players will receive their gear tomorrow during the day and after school, until 3:30. We will continue to issue gear during the day/after school on Friday as needed.

Thank you!

Passing League:

We are so thankful for your continued support to our program, and since you’ve been involved in the past we would like to offer you an opportunity for early registration. There are five time slots in 30 minute increments, beginning at 5:30pm. 

 

Hosting this event is our Athletic Training Program’s only fundraiser for the year. Without your support we would not be able to provide the services that we do for our student-athletes! We thank you in advance!

Reminders: ELITE Club, 7v7, Weight Room

Good Morning:

Just a few updates and reminders.

  • ELITE Club meeting tonight. Please bring your laptop. Remember, what we discussed last month: help teammates out. You don't have to be friends to ask for or give a ride; you're teammates.  This is open to all members (all grades) of the program and those interested in coming out this fall.
  • Thank you to those who have already signed up for the passing league.  As of Monday, we only had 20 registered players. If we don't have adequate numbers for two varsity teams (rising 10-12) and a freshman team, we will drop from the league. If you are going to participate, sign up now. We will make the decision to withdraw based on the roster report we receive next Monday. Remember, this is open to anyone who wants to play QB, WR, RB, TE, LB or DB. This open to rising 8th through 12th graders. See Coach Curry if there are issues preventing participation.
  • Overall, our strength training has dramatically improved this year! Thank you to all those who took the leap of faith to follow our model of Personal Fitness and also to those who aren't enrolled, yet consistently find a way to make their workouts. Non-Pfit athletes, with the exception of a small, consistent core, weight room attendance among this group is declining. What you do now dictates what happens in the fall both individually and as a program. Participation among the class of 2022 has been particularly sparse. Everyone is passionate about winning and playing time in the fall, yet the actions of some don’t currently reflect that passion. Be about it, don’t talk about it.

Good luck to our Lax boys tonight.

 

See you at 7 in room 591.

 

Thank you.

Updates for week of March 24

Good Evening: 

A few quick announcements!

March ELITE Club Meeting

  • Reminder, this month's meeting will be Thursday night in Coach Brady's room (591) at 7 pm. Please bring a laptop. 

College Football Interest

  • Anyone interested in playing football at the next level, please take a moment to fill out this form to help us better support you as you pursue your goals. 

Weight Room

  • Those athletes not in Personal Fitness need to carve out three days between M/W after school, Charger Time, and/or before school on Friday. There is a core group doing a great job, but we need to see a sharp improvement in attendance among sophomores and freshman. Being in-season for a spring sport makes it harder to find the time, but it is not an excuse to not train at all. We lift hard during our season and we expect the same effort in winter and spring. Warning: Harsh "real talk": Spring sports, Club/AAU teams, house leagues, etc.are not reasons to miss training three hours a week with your team. Gold's, Lifetime, etc. do not field varsity football teams, nor do personal trainers, Chantilly HS does. Success in the fall is earned now; this is true for both individuals and the program as a whole. 

7v7 Spring League

Spirit Wear

  • The light weight hoodies are now available in the "Spirit Box" in the gym lobby! Get yours today:100% of the proceeds support the program.

Have a great week!

Good Evening:

Workouts

You can find our updated workout attendance HERE. Please remember, the players are responsible for checking in for each workout and the information reflected in this spreadsheet is what they submit. If they are not listed, they haven't attended or have failed to follow this procedure.  The "class" header reflects their graduation year. Our program calendar has flipped already e.g. the class of 2020 are currently juniors for the school year but are now listed as seniors for football.  Please note, this list does not reflect athletes enrolled in Personal Fitness class.

Although we'd like to see more of our rising sophomores and the athletes not enrolled in Personal Fitness attend team workouts, there are MANY young men who have done a tremendous job carving out a few hours each week to prepare for the upcoming season. We truly appreciate and applaud their effort!  Our overall attendance leader is rising sophomore Michael Owens (20 sessions), followed closely by rising senior Ben Condemi (19), and rising junior Jack Ready (17). Michael, Ben, and Jack: great job leading by example!

Regardless of P-Fit or non-PFit status, our goal is to complete three workouts per week; the weight room is open after school Monday and Wednesday, 3:10-4:10, Friday before school, 6:45-7:45, and during Charger Time. See you there!

Passing League

Passing league is only 3 weeks away! Please visit Evergreen's site to register if you plan on participating. Last spring we had great participation, but a large number of players registered late. Due to the timing of registrations, we only had one varsity team despite having enough players to field two separate groups. That led to more sitting than is ideal. Our goal is two varsity teams (10-12 grade) and one freshman team (rising 8 and rising 9).

March ELITE Club

Our next ELITE Club meeting is scheduled for March 28. Players, keep an eye out for alerts on our Google Classroom site about some pre-meeting tasks (they are brief!).

Recruiting Process

To better support our athletes in the recruiting process, we ask that those who are interested in playing college football fill out the form found here. This is meant to be a reflective exercise while also providing us with helpful information. Be honest with yourself (prospective schools) and with your information (grades, test scores, height, etc.)!  The form does not save until submitted so be sure to wait to begin until you can see it to its conclusion. This is open to all athletes regardless of their grade or experience. The questions elicit the information that is most commonly requested by college coaches. 

Members of 2020, get electronic copies of your transcript to Coach Curry ASAP!

As always, thank you for your continued support of Chantilly football. 

Have a great week!

Good Evening:

E.L.I.T.E Club Meeting

The coaches would like to once again thank those who attended the E.L.I.T.E Club meeting on Thursday. We know it isn't always easy to attend meetings, but we truly appreciate it! A special thank you to the parents of our non-drivers for taking the time to shuttle our guys back to CHS. It was a great session. Football is a course in leadership and selflessness that is disguised as a sport.

If you weren't able to attend, one of the main points of emphasis was getting everyone on our Classroom site to ensure we can continue to communicate and develop in the spring. Please visit Google classroom and join football via the code: kqr0tb .

 If you did not attend, please take a moment to complete the form we used to reflect upon 2018 and to establish our goals for 2019.  We will use Google Classroom to communicate with players individually throughout the off-season. Remember, the program belongs to Chantilly, the team to the class of 2020, but we are all a part of the same mission. 

Purple Tie Bash

Parents/guardians: this Saturday is the Purple Tie bash! If you can, come out and support our boosters. We hope to see you there!

Workouts

The Dead Period is officially over! As always, we encourage enrollment in Personal Fitness, but if you are not enrolled in the class we encourage you to follow the example of young men like Ben Condemi (off-season attendance leader...again!) and find your way into the weight room! 

Passing League

Passing league registration is underway. Please see below for information previously shared: 


Spring Passing League will once again take place on Sunday evenings at Evergreen Sportsplex. Based on the increase in participation last year, our goal is to have two varsity teams this spring in addition to the younger team. Sign-up here. In addition to rising 9th graders, Evergreen is opening the younger bracket to rising 8th graders (current 7th graders) as well. Coach Curry and Coach McGhee will be visiting the middle schools in the coming weeks to share this information, but in the interim feel free to spread the word to interested neighbors and siblings! We would love to have two teams of rising sophomores through seniors and one team of rising eighth and freshman.

 

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly football!

Updates for week of February 24

Good Evening:
We wish the best of luck to our guys trying out for spring sports! Get out and COMPETE! There will be no after-school workouts this week due to the dead period. The weight room will remain open during Charger Time and on Friday morning. Dead Periods, holidays, and winter weather are additional reasons to take Personal Fitness! :)


This Thursday will serve as our first ELITE club meeting of the off-season (January's meeting was postponed). The agenda and goals from the postponed January meeting will serve as our objectives for Thursday: to provide our athletes with an opportunity to take ownership of the program by:

  • Drafting a program Mission Statement
  • Drafting a program Vision Statement
  • Establishing Program Core Values
  • Establishing Program Standards
  • Identifying Program Norms

We hope to see all of our rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors at 7 pm in Coach Brady's classroom (10th-grade health, 591). Positive culture wins!

E.L.I.T.E. Club Meeting, Course Selection, Spirit Wear

Good Evening:

E.L.I.T.E. Club Meeting

This Thursday will be the first E.L.I.T.E Club (Empowering Leaders Individually, Team Emphasis) meeting of 2019 (visit here for Important Dates...originally handed out at the banquet). The meeting will be held in Coach Brady's classroom (10th grade health, 591) at 7 pm. These meetings are open to any player interested in being a leader in the football program and are neither scheme nor workout related. All rising sophomores through seniors are invited. The objective of these meetings is to provide our athletes with an opportunity to take ownership of the program. For example, Thursday’s agenda includes:

  • Drafting a program Mission Statement
  • Drafting a program Vision Statement
  • Establishing Program Core Values
  • Establishing Program Standards
  • Identifying Program Norms

We hope to see everyone there!

Spirit Wear

Additional spirit wear is now available and 100% of the proceeds benefit the program! Please visit here, here and here for more information!

Course Selection: Personal Fitness

With course selection just around the corner for the '19-'20 school year, the football staff believes it is important that we stress the benefits of taking Personal Fitness as an elective. We truly believe the overall benefits of taking this elective speak for themselves. Please see Why Personal Fitness for more information.

It is 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.

Our goal is to have 100% of our sophomores through seniors enrolled in Personal Fitness.

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 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 benefits as well.

  • Successful participation in Personal Fitness earns 200 points in our off-season point system.
  • 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. Exercise is proven to improve cognitive ability and both physical and mental health.
  • Personal Fitness is the best way for multi-sport athletes to participate in all the sports they love while simultaneously improving strength and athleticism
  • Football players are NOT required 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 because of football nor will they find their time monopolized by off-season workouts!

Take P-FIT!

As always, thank you for your continued support of Chantilly Football!

Today's Workout; Current Leaders

Looking forward to seeing all non-Pfit students in the weight room during CT and/or after school. Consistency is key! We lift during football season and need to keep lifting through winter and spring seasons. In the future, the best thing to do is take Personal Fitness.

It is a simple formula: Work put in now = Results in Fall. Put yourself in position to compete for playing time. Put the program in position to compete!

Off-Season Strength Training

Happy New Year! We hope all of our families had a wonderful holiday season and winter break. The 2019 Off-Season is officially upon us!

To allow greater scheduling flexibility for athletes and families, we are again providing multiple opportunities for athletes to complete their weekly strength training. The best option is to enroll in Personal Fitness. In addition to "P-Fit" classes, the weight room will be open AFTER school on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:10-4:15 and BEFORE school on Fridays at 6:45 am. Additionally, athletes may come to the weight room during Charger Time on A Days. The expectation is that athletes complete three strength sessions per week. Ideally, the workouts are completed on non-consecutive days to ensure recovery, but that is not a requirement. Any combination of after school, before school, or CT will suffice. Athletes may attend the sessions that suit their schedule for any given week.

We are thrilled to share that for the first time in at least five or six years, the majority of our sophomores and juniors are enrolled in Personal FitnessThese athletes meet strength and conditioning requirements by simply attending class and are not expected to attend additional sessions; however, those athletes are welcome to come support teammates and/or supplement their training during other windows.

All freshman and upperclassmen not enrolled in PFit will need to attend sessions either after/before school or during CT. Multisport athletes are expected to lift with the program during the winter and spring seasons. All athletes and sports benefit from improving strength, power, explosiveness, and flexibility. We lift in the fall and expect the same the rest of the year. We do not expect athletes who are in-season for other sports to condition or participate in Green Day practices. We are still closing the gap between our program and the top teams in our district and region: the weight room will play a vital role in this endeavor must continue to be a priority. We are on the right track!

Attendance will be taken for each session via a Google form. Athletes will access the form through the QR Code posted on the football bulletin board in the weight room. 

We will continue the Reward System that was established last year to help guide our off-season efforts. 

The concept is simple: do right and earn points. Outside of losing points for negative behaviors, this system is based entirely on rewarding positive behaviors, not punishing negative behaviors. The system was created around the feedback provided by the players themselves and rewards include possible conditioning test exemption, the first choice of equipment and jersey numbers, etc. There will be ample opportunity for athletes to rise (or fall) on the leader board throughout the off-season.

Athletes will earn points for their performance and dedication in a number of areas that relate to strength and conditioning and behavior/leadership within the program and school. The point system can be found here.

Information about leadership/culture meetings, player-coach meetings, green days etc. will be shared in the near future and throughout the off-season.  

We look forward to a productive, challenging, fun, and rewarding off-season!
