Updates for the Week of April 25, 2022

Good Morning!

We hope you had a great weekend. Now that Chantillysports.org is functional again (we couldn't share files for a while), please take a moment to review our most recently updated "Important Dates" document. You will see that there are hyperlinks in the document that will take you to separate pages for Physical night and our two camps. Please see below for more information. 

Important Dates

A list of important dates can be found here. We will share modifications and updates as they occur.

Camps

For the first time since 2019, both of our normal camps are on as scheduled! For those new to the program, here is a quick breakdown of the camps: 

  • Camps are highly productive and participation is encouraged but it is not required.
  • They are operated by a third party, and there are registration fees.
  • Equipment is provided, but transportation is not.

Our first camp is called "Combo Camp" and will be held the week of June 6. We have an early release schedule that week due to exam schedules. Equipment will be issued to registered players prior to the camp. This camp will be held at EC Lawrence Park.

Our "Team Camp" will take place the week of July 18. This camp is held in the evening at Westfield HS. 

Physical Night

Ms. Bishop has asked us to share information regarding physical night. It is a quick and easy way to ensure all paperwork is submitted prior to the season!

As always, we appreciate your support of Chantilly Football!

Updates for the Week of March 14, 2022

Good Evening!

We hope everyone has enjoyed both the sneak peek of spring and (hopefully) the last taste of winter!

Workouts will continue this week with opportunities to get sessions in during Charger Time and/or after school M/W/F. 

As you may recall from previous blasts, we maintain an off-season leader board. One of the main criteria is attending off-season workouts. Traditionally, we will periodically share the attendance of our sessions. We'd like to commend all of our athletes for their commitment thus far. Below is simply a snapshot of the program's work thus far this off-season. No individual should "rest on their laurels," nor should anyone feel as though they are too far behind. Each day is an opportunity to either get better or get worse. Our actions reflect our choices.

Updates for the Week of January 31, 2022

Good Morning!

We hope everyone had a great weekend. Please see below for information regarding the off-season and dates for our spring and summer camps.

Off-Season Training

A full week of sessions will resume this week. All athletes not in Personal Fitness or playing a winter sport should make every effort to attend. Although the season seems far off, success in the fall requires year-round commitment, and slow, steady, consistent progress begins in January. Successful teams train hard together year-round. Sessions are Monday/Wednesday/Friday 3:10-4:10.

The easiest way to train consistently and with teammates is to enroll in Personal Fitness. We have 55 members of the program, sophomores through seniors, enrolled in PFit this year. 

Off-Season Point System 

Please take a moment to review our Off-Season Point System. We established these criteria following the 2017 season to further incentivize participation in off-season activities. However, we have been fortunate that most of our athletes have been intrinsically motivated to do well in recent years; therefore, the leaderboard only served as an additional form of healthy competition and accountability. 

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. Several athletes have provided feedback regarding incentives/rewards and helped shape the criterion. The most frequently identified incentive was the selection of equipment and jersey numbers; therefore, among other rewards and recognition throughout the off-season, the top point earners will have the first choice of equipment and jerseys numbers.

There are plenty of opportunities to rise (or fall) on the leaderboard throughout the off-season. Please find the Scoring Criteria here

Camp Dates

We have confirmed the dates for our two pre-season camps. After a two-year pause, "Combo Camp" is back. Combo camp is split into segments, Line of Scrimmage players in one session and skill position players in another. Combo Camp is the week of June 6-10. 

Like last year, we will attend Team Camp at Westfield HS. Team camp is the week of July 18-21

More information to follow!

Good Afternoon:

Workouts will resume this week starting Wednesday. We will continue to follow our schedule of M/W/F 3:10-4:10 pm. If there is no school, we will not conduct workouts unless otherwise communicated. 

Personal Fitness is the best way to meet the strength requirements necessary to become a successful athlete. It is highly encouraged that all athletes enroll in PFit. Please reach out to Coach Curry if you have questions!

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

Updates for the Week of January 10, 2022

Good Evening:

Happy 2022! We hope everyone had a restful, safe, healthy Winter Break and start to the new year. With the new year, we have also turned our team page to 2022. Information and dates will be updated frequently.  

We are still waiting to hear from the third parties who run our spring passing leagues and summer camps; we do not yet have confirmation for the start of fall practice, but we anticipate the date to be August 1, 2022. 

Before we discuss the official start of the off-season, we would like to thank the players and families in the class of 2022 one more time. A special thank you to Meredith and Butch Kinerney for their support, dedication, and tireless efforts to support the program over the last five years. Thank you for taking the lead on so many unsung, behind-the-scenes tasks!

Workouts

We will continue to follow county guidelines regarding COVID mitigation, and consequently, there will be NO AFTER SCHOOL WORKOUTS this week. If permitted, we will revaluate the week of January 17. 

If an athlete is a "Charger In Good Standing," they may be permitted to attend Charger Time sessions this week. 

ELITE CLUB

Our off-season leadership meetings will begin this month. More information to follow!

PFIT

There is a virtual Curriculum Fair tomorrow during Advisory. Please review the previous blasts that shared information about the importance of taking Personal Fitness as sophomores and juniors. The increased enrollment directly correlated with our increased success on the field.

Athletes enrolled in PFit:

  •  are not expected to attend after school workouts
  • do not have to choose between developing as an athlete with strength training or playing multiple sports
  • have one less class with homework and can dedicate more time to the core subjects that matter most to college admissions
  • have time to pursue other interests, sports, and jobs/hobbies

The successful programs in Northern VA follow this model; this approach is not unique to Chantilly. 

Please reach out to Coach Curry if you have questions!

Have a great week!

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

Updates for the Week of December 6, 2021

Good Evening:

Reminder, the banquet is scheduled for December 14. Please see last week's blast for more information. Details about the evening will be shared in the coming days. 

Strength and Conditioning

After-school workouts will begin Monday, December 6. Football players not enrolled in Personal Fitness should plan to attend. We begin at 3:10 and will finish at 4:10. Appropriate attire, including shoes, is required. Workouts will be held Monday/Wednesday/Friday.

Time management is imperative for successful student-athletes; we simply need three hours a week to improve as an individual and as a program. The weight room and training together are keys to success on the field in the fall, for both individuals and the team. Our success in recent years is a testament to the commitment we have had to year-round strength training. If you are in-season for another Chantilly HS sport, you cannot train with the football program until that season is over. Clubs and rec teams do not count and you are expected to lift with the program. Freshmen are now considered sophomores and are thus members of a varsity program. 

We are excited to begin working toward a successful 2022 season. 

If you have questions about workouts, please visit Coach Curry or Coach Casias.

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

Updates for the Week of November 29, 2021

Good Evening:

We hope all of our families had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Below is information about the banquet, the off-season, and the recruiting process. 

Banquet

The banquet will be on December 14 at 7 pm in the cafeteria. Thank you to those parents who have reached out about supporting the effort to celebrate the 2021 season. Please email Coach Curry at Stcurry@fcps.edu if you would like to join the effort to set up the banquet.

The evening is not only a celebration, but it also provides essential information to families about the upcoming season (yes, we begin to prep now!). ALL LEVELS (Freshmen, Developmental, Varsity) are included in the evening. We hope to see you there.

Off-Season

The off-season is upon us. Athletes in Personal Fitness only need to attend class, give great effort, and EAT! Students not enrolled in PFit should make every effort to attend strength and conditioning sessions held on Monday/Wednesday/Fridays from 3:10-4:10. 

In just five years, the program has gone from winless to three straight playoff appearances, a Region Championship appearance, and over 20 players playing in college because of a commitment to our off-season approach. Taking Personal Fitness sophomore through senior year is key. 

Please visit here for information about our Off-Season Point System.

Please see below from Mr. Bowerman regarding required proof of vaccination or weekly testing:

Coaches,

As you and your athletes prepare for out of season workouts and green days there are several things that need to happen. All athletes need to be registered in rSchool for your sport. Link for rSchool is on Chantillysports.org website (rSchool needs to be done every year). All athletes also need a valid physical on file and fully vaccinated or registered to be tested weekly. 

As of now, all athletes in season and doing out of season activities need to be vaccinated or be tested weekly. If an athlete is 16 or older, they must either be vaccinated or have a medical/religious exemption. If they have a waiver-must be tested weekly. If an athlete is under 16, must be vaccinated or be tested weekly.

For vaccination documentation/testing here is what your athletes need to do….

Provide the Activities Office with a copy of your student-athletes Vaccination Card. (Activities Office is by door 11)

      or

Register for the weekly COVID testing:  secure online portal. After clicking on the link, you will need to select Chantilly High School to start the registration. 

They cannot participate until this is complete.

Recruiting

It has been a busy week for recruiting as the contact period has begun. We've already hosted Penn State, Maine, Randolph-Macon, ECU, Fairmont State, Richmond, Frostburg State, Glennville State, Bluefield State, and Stevenson. There will be many more coaches visiting over the next few weeks. For those wondering, here is a simple breakdown of where we are in the football recruiting process by graduation year:

Class of 2022

  • Schools: 
      • FBS/FCS are finalizing their offers for the upcoming early signing Day; they are also extending Preferred Walk-on opportunities for athletes they project as potential scholarship players in the future. 
      • D2/D3 programs are introducing and/or following up with recruits they are targeting. They offer scholarships (D2) and roster spots/financial packages for top targets.
  • Athletes:
      • Athletes in this class should request updated transcripts from counselors and either cc Coach Curry on the email or forward it to StCurry@fcps.edu. SAT/ACT scores should be readily available as well. Athletes must also register with the NCAA 

Class of 2023

  • Schools: 
    • All levels are beginning to inquire about current juniors; at this point, they are creating a "board" of prospects they want to evaluate and potentially visit in the spring.
  • Athletes:
    • Athletes in this class should update varsity HUDL highlights. Over the next six months, the focus should be on academics, and physical development: the better the GPA, the more recruitable an athlete; building up the frame will not only help improve performance, but it will also help athletes pass the "eye test." Begin to prep for SAT/ACT and register for the spring tests. 

Classes of 2024/25

  • Schools: 
    • Power 5 FBS schools will have analysts begin evaluating the top athletes around the country.
  • Athletes:
    • Athletes should be proactive in their education. CORE classes matter most (math, science, English, social studies, language, etc.). Do everything you can to build up your GPA. The key is to avoid digging yourself into a hole. Consistently train with the program!

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

Updates for the Week of November 15, 2021

Good Evening:

The coaching staff would like to thank our athletes and their families for their commitment to the program during the 2021 season. Through the ups and downs of the season, the boys showed their resilience and fought to the very end. We are so proud of how our young men came together to persevere through some unique challenges. Specifically, over the final two weeks of the season, our players truly lived our motto, "Doesn't Matter; Get Better," and embodied the values of the program: Relentless Effort, Competitive Excellence, and The Power of Fraternity.

The end of the season is never easy, and we will miss the class of 2022. Seniors, we love you guys. Thank you for everything.

Team Meeting; Equipment Collection

Our final required team activity of the 2021 season is a brief meeting followed by equipment collection. All players who have not yet turned in their equipment need to meet in the upstairs locker room at 3:05 pm tomorrow (Monday, 11/15). Players will check out individually to ensure they receive credit for returning their equipment. Please keep the following in mind:

  • We have to issue financial obligations for missing equipment (prices approximate and reflect 2020 prices, cost of replacement is likely higher)
    • locks ($5)
    • helmets ($475)
    • shoulder pads ($275)
    • game jerseys/pants ($125 per item)
  • We will discard personal items that are left behind.
  • If necessary, please bring a bag to take your belongings. 
  • We will turn over the locker room to the wrestling team tomorrow afternoon; if you cannot attend the meeting for a valid reason (e.g., illness), please contact Coach Curry directly. All lockers need to be emptied tomorrow. 

Banquet

Our banquet date is TBD. The banquet is program-wide and includes freshmen, developmental, and varsity teams. Typically, we celebrate the season on the final Thursday evening before Winter Break. If you are interested in helping to organize the banquet, please reach out to Coach Curry. 

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

Good Afternoon:

We will be traveling to Centreville on Friday in the opening round of the playoffs. We will have a typical week of practice leading up to the game. 

As shared last week, athletes in the post-season will have an opportunity to try out for a winter sport upon the conclusion of our season. Athletes are neither required nor permitted to participate in another sport until the conclusion of the current season; this is an FCPS/VHSL policy. We suggest athletes email the head coach of the sport they are interested in trying out for and let them know that you are a member of the varsity football program and will be trying out upon the conclusion of our season. 

We work year-round for the opportunity to compete in the post-season; whether it is a week or five, we've earned the right to compete in the post-season; let's enjoy the experience. 

Whenever the season does end, our final day/obligation is the following Monday. We will have a brief mandatory meeting and collect equipment.

  • All belongings must be cleaned out of lockers. Bring a bag.
  • We will issue Financial obligations for any missing equipment/cloth. 
  • ATHLETES must turn in their equipment; we cannot credit an athlete with gear return left in the locker room. 
  • PLEASE NOTE: we cannot hold onto personal belongings! Unclaimed items left behind will be discarded. 

Let's enjoy the push for a return to the Region Championship!

Freshman and JV are home this week, and we can use a few more volunteers.  If you have not had a chance to pitch in before, here is your chance.  We need help with the freshman game- 1 concession worker and 1 ticket sales.  Look at your schedule for Thursday evening and let us know. 

 

Also, if you signed up to help with the last game (Madison), please take a look at the sign-up to double-check you are still available with the date change.  It is Nov. 3, not Nov 4.

Good Afternoon:

This week the Freshmen and Developmental teams will play host to Westfield. Varsity will travel to Westfield on Friday. 

It is the time of year where all players are feeling the wear and tear of the season, and the end-of-quarter is fast approaching. This is why we have high school athletics, to teach lessons about discipline, responsibility, the sacrifices necessary to achieve goals and put a greater purpose above one's self. We have stressed the importance of attending and participating in practices at all levels and this week is no different. 

Winless, the program was in a deep, dark hole just five years ago. Yet, through a collective, concerted effort, and sacrifices made by many (players, coaches, and families alike), we dug out of it to post an 8 win season in '19, a Region Championship appearance last season, and have a chance to earn a postseason appearance this season. We hope that we can count on current members of the program to continue to make the correct choices to achieve their personal and team goals. 

We will see you at practice.

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

Senior Night 

Parents/Guardians of Seniors, please see below for a message from Mr. Bowerman regarding the ceremony.

Friday will be senior night for football, cheer, dance, and student ATC’s.

We will do this the same way we did it last year.  I (Corey Bowerman) will meet the parents outside on the track at 6:25 under our tent, get them organized, and fill out announcer card.

For planning…..we will start announcing seniors as soon as football completes the pregame.  I am aiming for announcing to begin at 6:45 pm.

Good Morning Charger families!

This week is our first district home game against our friends down the road, Centreville. Let’s not make them wait in line to buy tickets. We only have 3 ticket takers signed up for Friday night (the people who have given their time this week have already volunteered multiple times—thank you!!!!). It is our responsibility as a football family to support one another. Please volunteer Friday night, especially if you have not been able to before. We need all of us to pitch in to make it happen. So calling all freshman and JV parents to step up!

Here is the sign-up link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050544ABAB23A64-2021

Go ahead and take a look at the weeks to come as freshman and JV will be home next week!

Also, all buttons will at the games this week. Deb Tinkoff will have the buttons at the freshman game (JV parents if you get there before the end of the game you can get yours too). I will be on the 50-yard line up near the press box on Friday night for varsity buttons ( I will be looking for parents too!). We appreciate your patience as we got all of these done. Big thank you to Dawn Cavanar for all of her help!!

Labor Day

Good Morning:

We want to thank the players and families who carved out time this weekend for practice. We understand HS football is new for many players and families due to COVID, but football teams practice on Labor Day. Missing seventeen varsity players impacted practice quite a bit. The top programs have "buy-in" from all parties involved: players, coaches, players' families, and coaches' families. We genuinely appreciate your support. Chantilly is a special place, and we are fortunate to work with so many tremendous athletes and families.  

Varsity players, remember we wear jerseys to school after wins, so wear your jersey tomorrow, and we will collect them after practice.

Have a great rest of the day! Don't forget to hydrate!

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

Good Afternoon:

We hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend!  A big win on Thursday was a nice way to kick off the holiday weekend.

Practice on Labor Day will start at 8:30 am for all levels in the program. Players who need treatment should report to the training room at 7:30

The rest of the week is what we consider to be a "normal" game week. 

  • On Thursday, the Freshmen and Developmental teams will travel to Washington-Liberty for their first games
  • Freshmen start at 5:45
  • Developmental kick-off approximately 10 minutes after the freshmen conclude (about 7:15)
    • Reminder, Developmental players will attend varsity practice on Thursday prior to the game. 
  • Varsity football hosts WL at 7 pm on Friday. A signup genius for ticket takers will be sent later this week. 

Please wrap up the coupon card selling in the next day or so. We are still far below goal due to a lack of overall participation, but we need to move on. This will impact the 2021 budget. The online donation fundraiser is ongoing. The link to our site can be found here. Please note, the online fundraiser nets 100% profit since the link sends funds directly to our account via myschoolbucks

If you have not yet paid, please pay for the spirit pack ($50): myschoolbucks, cash,  or check made out to CHS are all acceptable forms of payment. If you need financial assistance, please speak with Coach Curry.

Updates for the Week of August 30, 2021

Good Afternoon!

We hope everyone has had a great weekend. 

This week is an excellent opportunity for the program to practice the mantra we consistently preach: It doesn't matter; get better! In other words, challenges are to be expected and will occur, but they don't serve as excuses. This week's challenges include a short prep week (game on Thursday), facility challenges (potential weather and a home field hockey game), and Back to School Night (Wednesday). Unfortunately, there will not be a freshmen scrimmage. Falls Church does not have a freshmen team.

  • Monday: we will have an extended practice for an intensive special teams review (generally reserved for Thursdays) 
    • players participating in the Developmental scrimmage will be dismissed early, and they should return by 6:50 pm to warm-up for the scrimmage, which begins at 7:15
    • Please note, developmental players will practice on days of their games before being dismissed. If transportation is a challenge, they should pack an extra snack or meal for between practice and the game. Although it is a challenge, this approach is the norm around the region.
  • Tuesday: we will finish on the grass practice field when field hockey comes on to warm-up
  • Thursday: GAMEDAY! Players on the travel list will return to school by 4:45 for meetings before our departure to Falls Church.
  • Friday: Virtual film and stretch
  • Saturday: Players off
  • Monday: practice at CHS in the morning (must confirm the time with Athletic Trainers, likely 8:30 start)

The potential thunderstorms mean that we must be prepared to move inside for a portion or all of the practice. Indoor practice is less than ideal, but to ensure we get the most out of it, players MUST have a pair of athletic footwear suitable for running (slides/crocs do not cut it). It is important to note that we do not decide the time frame we have access to the gym. We have to follow the schedule the activities office creates. The gym schedule has not yet been shared with us. Our slot might not be right after school on a given day, e.g., it could be as late as a 5 pm start. Again, this is out of our hands. We will communicate as quickly as possible with players and families. 

Fundraiser

Thank you to the players and families who have put time and energy into our fundraising efforts. We truly appreciate the support. We'd also like to thank those who have donated bottles of water for game nights.

Please continue to share the donation website

Freshmen: please continue to sell the fundraiser cards. So far, numbers and participation among freshmen have been very low.

Sooner than later, our weekly schedule will normalize, the updates will be shorter, and the fundraisers will be over! :) Thanks for your patience in the meantime!

We hope everyone has a great, shortened second week of school!

  • Freshmen:
    • Report to the team room after school. 
    • Freshmen will lift Wednesday and Friday before practice.

Picture Day and Fundraiser Updates

Good Afternoon:

A few updates/reminders.

Water Bottle Donations

At last week's scrimmage, we saw how difficult it is to get water breaks during game situations when the traditional communal squirt bottles are not allowed due to COVID. Last season, it was immensely helpful to have donated bottles of water that the trainers could hand players during timeouts and between quarters.

Please consider donating a case or two of bottled water. It was very helpful last season! The smaller 8oz. bottles work well for quick breaks, but the full-size bottles work too! Thank you!

Pictures

Pictures will be Saturday at 8 am. Order forms will be sent home. If you wish to purchase pictures, return the completed order form on Saturday. They do not accept orders after picture day. 

Freshmen

Please download the app for the card fundraiser before practice today. You will receive your cards when you arrive. Visit the link for your code.

Fundraisers FAQ

Q. What is the goal for each player?

A. Going back to the previous staff (since 2005), CHS football has always hoped for $400-500 per player. 

Q. What is the goal for the fundraiser? 

A. $20,000 keeps the program afloat; $30,000 enables us to upgrade/replace big-ticket items in some capacity. Few teams in our district simply stay afloat. We've been digging out of a hole since 2017.

Q.That is a lot of money; where does it go? What are the expenses?

A. Funds go directly to the program. Nothing about this sport is cheap. One football = $80, one helmet $400, one pair shoulder pads = $275+, one jersey = $120. Our heavy sleds are 20 years old. With residual funds from 2020, we purchased the first new end zone camera since 2009 for $7,000.

Q. Discount Card Sale: In terms of selling cards, what is the goal for each player? 

A. At a minimum, sell the 10 physical cards. Going back 10+ years, the goal at CHS has always been to sell 20 cards. This year we have a hybrid discount card sale going (both physical and virtual). EVERY PLAYER's goal is to sell the 20 cards. At a minimum, the goal is to sell all the physical cards. They are worth $250. The funds must be accounted for upon the conclusion of the fundraiser. 

Q. Target Audience for the Online Donations vs. Discount Cards

A. The online donation fundraiser is meant to target friends and family willing to donate towards our goals. Any amount is appreciated, but this is where we generally see our most significant donations.

The discount cards can, of course, be sold to friends and family; however, the greatest return on our invested effort comes when we go into the community (door-to-door, shopping centers, etc.). The card fundraiser is the old-fashioned "hello, would be interested in supporting Chantilly football..." type of fundraiser. 

Q. What is a "Blitz Day" and how can I help?

A. A Blitz Day is a concentrated effort to sell all remaining discount cards. Some years the fundraiser begins with a blitz; other years, the blitz is near the end. We were hoping players would get a head start on the sales this year, so we issued the cards last week. OVERALL, it is going very poorly... thus far Saturday is a chance to bounce back. We hoped that exempting players who sold ten physical cards from the Blitz would be motivation to get it done. At this point, the overwhelming majority of the program should anticipate participating in the blitz effort. 

At a minimum, encourage your player to sell his 10 cards. Additionally, helping to divide up the players and transport them throughout the CHS boundaries and to nearby shopping centers.

Q. What does "going poorly thus far" mean?

A. Of the 77 players who have started the fundraiser...

  •  67 players have sold 5 or fewer cards
  • 50 players have sold ZERO cards

At this point, we will owe money to the company that created the card.

Q. Is it difficult to run both fundraisers at the same time?

CHS football has run both an online donation campaign and discount card fundraiser concurrently for 10+ years with great success. The 2020 season was no different, and we saw great results. This year, the only difference is that we dropped the third party for the online campaign and rely on families/players to share the link directly with would-be donors.

If we target strangers in the CHS community for the card fundraiser and close friends and family for the online donations, we will likely see much better results.

Good Afternoon!

Despite the inauspicious start to the competitive portion of the season (missing busses, weather delays, etc.), we had a great scrimmage on Saturday! Thank you all for your patience and understanding.  

This week marks the shift to afternoon practices as teachers return for staff development. 

Fundraiser Notes

Card Sale Information:

  • This is a traditional "door-to-door"/shopping center/bring to the office fundraiser. 
  • Varsity players received ten cards on Friday to sell in the community; they also received instructions on how to sell the cards electronically. 
  • If a player sells all of his cards in advance of our "Blitz Day" this Saturday, they do not have to participate and may leave immediately after pictures. 
  • The cards are valued at $250. Do not lose or keep without purchasing. Any unsold cards come out of our cut from the payout. The physical cards must be sold, or the program has to purchase (we cannot return extras). 
  • The goal is for every player to sell ten physical cards and ten virtual. The deals include nationwide goods/services so family and friends around the country can get something in return for supporting us!

Online Donations:

  • The online fundraiser site is ready to share with friends and family!
  • Please share (email, text, post on social media, etc.) https://sites.google.com/view/tillyfootball2021onlinedonate/mission-and-values-of-chantilly-football
  • Last year this effort was very successful ($20,000 raised), but the company kept 20% of the funds. This year's setup yields 100% profit for the programbut it requires players/families to share the link themselves. eTeamsponsor had you submit email addresses, and they sent the link; while that was simple, I don't think it was worth giving up 20%. PLEASE share with friends, family, social media etc. The site is much more specific to our program, and I think some would enjoy learning about our program!

Varsity Schedule

  • Treatments begin at 2
  • Team lift (Purple Group M/W; White Group T/TH) 2:15
  • Practice: 3-6
  • Scrimmage at Unity Reed Thursday at 6 pm
  • Pictures Saturday at 8 am (football field)

  • Football Players may pick up their school computers tomorrow after practice (varsity) or workouts (freshmen). We conduct meetings and watch film virtually, so all varsity players will need to pick up their computers. 
  • Friday's varsity scrimmage at Fairfax HS has been bumped back to 7:30 due to anticipated weather.
  • Varsity will not practice Saturday, rather there will be a mandatory film session/meeting on Saturday morning. This meeting will be conducted virtually (as they were last season).

Updates for the Week of August 9, 2021

Good Evening:

Thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday to get a glimpse of the 2021 varsity team! We'd also like to thank all the parents who volunteered and/or donated to support the picnic that followed the scrimmage. A special thank you to Meredith Kinereny for being the driving force behind the effort!

Communication
We realize that many players and families are new to high school football and are just learning about the commitment required to participate, let alone excel, as a player/team. With COVID bumping the 2020 season to February, only members of the class of 2021 have any experience with August "Camp," so we appreciate the learning curve; however, one major issue we've encountered so far this year has nothing to do with being new to football. After only one week, we have had an unacceptable number of absences, and most players are not communicating in advance. Players need to communicate with coaches via email or text and share their reason for missing practice. 

Fall Sports Parent Meeting
Our Director of Activities, Mr. Bowerman, is hosting a Fall Sports Parent meeting on Wednesday, August 11 at 7:30 pm in the auditorium (front of school). We will have a football-specific meeting afterward. The meeting is for all levels.

Schedule
Freshmen will follow the same schedule as last week.  

Varsity will practice 8 am-11 Monday through Thursday. Instead of holding a second practice, we will be lifting in the weight room. Half of the roster will lift Monday/Wednesday, and the other half will lift on Tuesday/Thursday. Players need to bring a mask and athletic shoes, not slides, for indoor weight training. 

Friday, we will have a shorter practice in the morning (8 am), and in the evening, we will travel to Fairfax High School for our first scrimmage. The scrimmage will begin at 6 pm. 

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

Updates for the Week of August 2, 2021

Good Afternoon:

Tomorrow is the first official day of the 2021 football season! It might (still) look a little different, but football season is upon us, and we can't wait to get to work!

Program Wide Information (applies to all players regardless of level)

COVID Protocol: 

FCPS has recently shared updated guidelines for athletics this school year. Please review the short document found here. Please note similarities to last season: 

  • masks are required indoors
  • athletes must bring at least 32 ounces of water
  • athletes will complete a screening questionnaire before participating

In sum, for football, athletes must have the following to participate in practice:

  • Mask for indoors (lifting, training room, locker room, meetings, etc.)
  • Helmet (helmets will be sized and issued for athletes who did not attend our team camp)
  • Mouthpiece (players will be given one as a part of the spirit pack; additional mouthguards can be purchased separately)
  • Seven Pad Girdle
  • Water bottle (at least 32 ounces)
  • Footwear
    • Cleats
    • ATHLETIC FOOTWEAR (slides are not suitable for weight training)
  • We prefer that athletes wear dark athletic shorts, without pockets) for practice

Spirit Pack:

Spirit Packs (required purchases) are now available for purchase. To buy online, please see MySchoolBucks. To purchase with cash or check, please send it in with your athlete. Checks should be made out to Chantilly High School, the memo: football spirit pack. Athletes will receive practice jerseys on the first day of practice. In addition, game day compression shirts will be handed out before the first regular-season game.

If there is a financial hardship, please speak with Coach Curry to work out an arrangement. Unfortunately, because football doesn't receive a set budget from the school or FCPS, free/reduced lunch status does not cover the cost of the spirit pack. The program absorbs all costs; however, finances will not preclude an athlete from participating in our program.

2021 Fundraisers:

Everyone's least favorite necessary evil: fundraisers! Although it seems like we just ran our fundraisers, those funds went toward the 2020 season. We will again sell fundraiser discount cards in addition to a separate online donations campaign. This year, we've dropped the third party for the donation campaign. Instead, donations will be submitted directly to our account via a MySchoolBucks link, thus allowing the program to keep 100% of the funds. We will share more information regarding fundraisers in the coming days. 

Information for Freshmen 

  • The first day of freshman football practice will be August 18, 2021. 
  • Until then, freshmen will continue to have strength and conditioning sessions on Tuesdays/Thursdays at 8:30 am.

Information for Varsity (sophomores, juniors, and seniors

On Monday, August 2, all varsity football players should be ready to check-in at 8 am in front of the gym lobby. As anti-climatic as it may be, we need to ensure that all athletes have submitted their paperwork before participating in practice. Please see our pre-season checklist for more information about the required forms. We have shared this information weekly since late spring, and many athletes have already completed the required steps.   

In recent weeks, FCPS has shared changes adopted from the VHSL regarding practice structure (what is and isn't allowed concerning time); however, at this point, athletes should still anticipate football activities from 8 am- 2 pm. The practice structure may seem different to our older/returning players, but the window for football activity will remain the same. We will "give back" time when/if possible (e.g., shorten), but we won't extend the window. 

Concerning schedule, Monday is unique compared to the rest of our "August Camp." First, we will check-in and lift starting at 8 am. Then, there will be an hour break as mandated by VHSL at 9:30. Athletes should bring a light, healthy snack, and they should plan on remaining at CHS during this break. At 10:30, our first official practice will begin. Practice will conclude at 12:30. 

Please keep in mind that there is a VHSL acclimation period, and athletes must complete a five-day acclimation period before being eligible for full contact. Therefore, a single missed practice this week will prohibit an athlete from participating in our purple/white scrimmage on Saturday.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Coach Curry.

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

Spirit Pack Sizes and Parent/Guardian Survey: All levels 9-12

If you haven't yet filled out the survey regarding spirit packs, please do so by 3 pm today, Saturday, July 10. It was first shared on June 13. We must place the order to ensure timely delivery.

Accurate sizes will ensure we have enough stock to accommodate all athletes. The compression shirt is required game day apparel.

Those who pay the full spirit pack cost and submit sizes on time will be issued first. Others will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

Size Survey

If you have not yet submitted complete the parent/guardian survey, you can find that here.

Updates for the Week of July 12, 2021

Good Morning!

We hope everyone enjoyed some time away from workouts this past week!

This week we will resume workouts in the morning, but please note this significant change: this week, we will only conduct two sessions in the morning, Monday and Wednesday, at our usual 8:30 start time. This change is due to our camp at Westfield which will run from 5-8 pm. We hope that reducing our morning sessions will alleviate some transportation challenges for our families. Again, there will be no workouts on Tuesday/Thursday this week.

Next week we will return to four sessions in the morning. 

Camp

Our lone camp of the 2021 season will be held this week at Westfield HS. For those who are new to the program, pre-COVID, we participated in a 7-on-7 spring league, a June camp, and a July camp. We are excited to see a somewhat normal return to our season's preparation. 

Notes from Camp director:

  • Athletes must be picked up/depart promptly after camp ends
  • Players must have their own water bottles
    • We will provide water but not bottles or cups
  • If we have a weather issue, there will be space for you in the building if your players do not have cars.
  • There will be a certified athletic trainer will be present during camp. 

Chantilly notes about camp:

  • Helmets arrived from reconditioning last week, and we will issue during/after Monday morning's workouts
    • Only registered camp participants will receive Helmets will (see below for a list of registered campers as of Friday, 7/9)
  • Athletes may still register. 
    • BRING the completed form and fee to workouts on Monday morning to have a helmet issued.
  • Money doesn't preclude participation in our program. CHS/FCPS does not cover the cost for camps, spirit packs, equipment, etc., so we ask athletes to contribute what they can to minimize the hit to program finances.  Athletes with financial challenges should speak with Coach Curry Monday morning about the camp fee.
    • ATHLETES MAY NOT ATTEND CAMP WITHOUT COMPLETING REGISTRATION.  
    • Camp directors will be checking athletes in at the top of the facility. Unregistered athletes will not be permitted access to camp facilities. 

Please see below for confirmation of registration as of noon 7/9. Moving forward, registrations should be handed directly to Coach Curry before camp. As of now, only the following athletes are permitted to attend camp.

Updates for the Week of June 21, 2021

Happy Father's Day to all the father figures in the Chantilly Football community!

Please be sure to revisit the blast from last week for important information about the summer, paperwork, etc. 

This week we will be adding True AP to our training. Please be sure to complete the registration form prior to tomorrow's session. Please see last week's blast for more information about True AP. The link to register can be found there as well. 

True AP is on a stricter timeline than we usually are, so please report straight to the field and be ready to go at 8:30. The roof over the gymnasium is being worked on for the next few weeks, so please avoid the area leading up to the gym lobby. 

Tomorrow will be our first real taste of hot summer weather so *PLEASE* hydrate properly today, tonight, and tomorrow morning. Athletes may want to bring an extra shirt to change prior to moving into the weight room for our lift. 

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

True AP

Good Afternoon:

Thank you to everyone who responded to the quick survey about our program continuing to work with True AP during our summer sessions. It appears that the majority of respondents were not only interested in us continuing with True AP, but the overwhelming majority of families who responded also shared a willingness to contribute to the cost.

Starting next week, True AP will lead the field sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays. All athletes must complete the True AP registration form which can be found here. If you are able to contribute to the cost of their services, you can simply pay on their site when completing registration. The amount is $40.

If that amount is higher than you can contribute but you'd still like to help with the cost, you can send cash or check (made out to Chantilly HS football) in the amount that is more feasible for your individual circumstances. We will deposit to our account and put that towards what we will absorb as a program. 

As we always say, cost should never preclude a player from participating in our program. If the fee is too steep, all athletes can and should still participate in all four of our sessions each week when they are in town. When checking out simply ignore the payment option.

Updates for the Week of June 14, 2021

Good Afternoon!

As of tomorrow, June 14, we are only 49 days from the 2021 football season! We are excited to have you join us this year as we look to build on the successes of the 2020 season. 

Please take a moment to review our Pre-Season Checklist. You can access it by clicking here or by going to the files tab on our page. This document has lots of important information regarding paperwork, FCPS, CHS, and program policies. There are also a few informational forms that we'd like filled out (volunteerism, athlete sizes, etc.). You will also see instructions for enrolling in the text alert system Remind as another method for receiving program communication. 

Summer Strength and Conditioning

Reminder, our summer workouts will begin tomorrow at 8:30 am at CHS and will conclude by 10:45 am. Please meet in the gym lobby. Athletes should have athletic shoes for the weight room and are encouraged to bring cleats for conditioning on the turf. Players are also encouraged to bring their own water bottles.

Athletes should hydrate in advance of the sessions. 

Workouts will be held Monday through Thursday and are open to all football players 9-12 grade. We will strength train in the weight room and work speed/agilities and football-specific skills on the field. 

Unless an athlete is out of town, we expect all football players to attend these sessions. Not only do they help prepare the individual for the season, but they have also proven to be immensely important in building the positive culture we have fostered in recent years. If you cannot attend, you should contact Coach Curry in advance at StCurry@fcps.edu.

Sessions are early enough in the day that our players will have plenty of time to schedule work and/or enjoy the rest of their summer day! So come get better for a few hours in the morning!

Team Camp

Team Camp has been approved by FCPS. The camp will be at Westfield HS July 12-15, 5-8 pm. This camp is the only one of the summer, and it is open to all players 9-12 grade.

Upcoming schedule

  • Weeks of June 14, 21, and 28: strength and conditioning at CHS 8:30-10:30 am.
  • Week of July 5 VHSL Dead Period: No football-related activities
  • Week of July 12: Workouts resume in the morning at CHS; Camp at Westfield in the evening (5-8 pm)
  • August 2: First day of practice (sophomores through seniors) 8 am.
  • August 18: First day of practice for Freshmen

We know this is a lot at once, but please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions! We are looking forward to getting to work tomorrow morning!

As always, THANK YOU for your support of Chantilly Football!
