Updates for the Week of June 27, 2022

Good Morning:

*Reminder* Next week is the VHSL Dead Period; there will be no organized activities for the team (or any other CHS team). We will return to our normal summer workout schedule on July 11.

Donations to cover TrueAP Training are appreciated (see summer info blast for more information). For those who have attempted to use MySchoolBucks, our Finance Tech just shared with me that the site/link will be down until mid-July. Thank you to those who have contributed to the cost to bring in outside trainers to supplement our training.  

If you haven't yet done so, please review the last two email blasts for important information:

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

Updates for the Week of June 20, 2022

Good Evening:

We hope all the fathers and father figures in the program had a wonderful Father's Day! 

Please take a moment to review the Pre-Season Checklist. It contains links and details regarding essential information, including:

  • requirements to play (physical form, RSchool site)
  • updated important dates/season schedules 
  • volunteer opportunities 
  • text alert signup information
  • Team Camp link
  • and more

TrueAP

Registration for our sessions can be found here. As shared previously, the program covers the cost. If you'd like to contribute, please check out Chantilly High School (memo Football) or visit our MySchoolBucks link. Thank you to the folks who have donated to help with the price. See last week's blast for more information.

 

Meeting Q&A

Before the parent/guardian meeting, we sent a link for Q&A. You will find the questions and answers below.

  • Are rising freshmen allowed to attend summer strength and conditioning?
    • Yes! We encourage our rising freshmen to attend all possible sessions! 
  • What is the expectation for attendance with summer workouts?
    • If an athlete is in town, we expect to see them. Please see last week's blast for more information. Not only does the individual player benefit from attending sessions, but the entire program benefits from the development of positive team culture. If players cannot attend a session, they need to contact Coach Curry directly. 
  • What is the schedule for the summer conditions and practices?
    • Please see last week's blast regarding workouts and visit here for the entire 2022 calendar.
  • Is it the general rule to let out athletes 20-30 min past posted end times (Elite Club, camp, etc.)? We all have family schedules to consider and 3x in the past 2 weeks my football player has been let out 20-40 min past the posted end time, throwing our family schedule afterwards into a tailspin.
    • Thank you for bringing this up. The short answer is "no, of course not." We would also add that the external factors that lead to delayed dismissals are equally frustrating for coaches and their families, as they are parents, if not more so. 
    • There are a few factors in play, so we will address all of them. First and most important, times shared reflect the start and end time of the actual activity (practice, meeting, etc.). 
    • Examples: workouts begin at 8:30, and we conclude training at 10:30. Athletes help coaches clean the field and are then dismissed. Many of our athletes slowly depart with teammates well after our time together has ended.
    • The start of the aforementioned ELITE Club meeting held earlier in the month was delayed significantly due to the room reservation not being fulfilled through building use. Unfortunately, that is out of our control. We were fortunate that Mr. MacKenzie happened to see us scrambling for space, and he allowed us to use his classroom on a whim since our reserved room wasn't left unlocked as it should have been. Additionally, the young men were highly engaged and continued the dialogue of the culture meeting beyond the allotted time. The meeting was also held at the end of the building opposite the athletic wing.
    • Camp is off-site and run by a third party. There were a few hiccups that delayed the start and conclusion of the first day. 
    • I can assure you that the coaching staff, their spouses, and families, are equally frustrated by the occasional schedule change and derailment. We do our best to honor everyone's time. Many factors are at play that impacts punctuality, from facilities to keeping 60-85 adolescents on track at once. Additionally, when presented to the coaching staff, we always honor the need to depart early from a team function. Please contact Coach Curry directly if you have further questions or concerns. StCurry@fcps.edu.

 

  • What is the summer schedule? I was unable to attend the meeting yesterday. My son is a rising 11th grader and very interested in football. He attended an after-school meeting like a week or two ago
    • Please review last week's post and email any follow up question to STCurry@Fcps.edu.

 

  • We are unable to attend the June 9 meeting, but our son is interested in Freshman Football. Please advise of any other way to get information. 
    •  Chantillysports.org and Remind Text Alerts are the best ways to keep the information current. Please create an account on Chantillysports.org and elect to receive notifications from all levels of football. 
    • Visit here for information regarding text alerts. 

 

  • Can you please send me information regarding when football practice starts? My son will be a freshman in the Fall.  
    • Freshmen football will begin on August 15.

 

  • Am I too late to join the freshmen football team because I did not attend the meeting on June 9? 
    • NEVER! We welcome freshmen well into the season. Football is an inclusive game and requires ZERO previous experience. Our primary focus is for our players to have a great experience and "learn and return."

 

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

Updates for the Week of June 13, 2022-Summer Workout Information

Good Evening:

We hope everyone has had a great first weekend of summer break! We had a very productive camp last week; thank you to all the athletes who attended and their families. We are a week better and appreciate your support. 

We also want to thank the parents/guardians who attended our informational meeting. For those unable to attend the meeting, we will send a separate blast about the information shared in the meeting later this week. Please keep an eye out for it!

Summer Workouts

Summer workouts are here! 

  • Summer training will begin tomorrow, June 13, at CHS.
  • Sessions are open to all athletes interested in playing football, including freshmen.
  • Sessions will run from 8:30-10:30 am Monday through Thursday.
  • Sessions will include strength training in the weight room and speed, agility, and football-specific conditioning outside.
  •  Athletes should wear clothing that is appropriate for weight lifting. SLIDES and CROCS ARE NOT APPROPRIATE for training.
  • Bring a water bottle.
  • We support multisport athletes; however, we expect that football becomes a top priority when the VHSL calendar turns over in the spring. At this point in the pre-season, that means attending workouts. We schedule our sessions in the morning so that our working athletes have a large window in the afternoon to schedule their shifts. 
  • If you are in town, we expect to see you at workouts. If you cannot make a session, reach out to a coach and let them know. 
  • Additional outside training is not only unnecessary, it is counterproductive. We appreciate the desire to get better, but the body needs an opportunity to recover after exercise.
  • TrueAP will train us Monday and Wednesday for additional speed and agility work.

TrueAP

As we have done in the past, the program will cover the cost of TrueAP; however, if you wish to contribute to the price ($3,000), we'd appreciate your contribution. Last year many families put $40 toward the cost. If you are inclined, checks should be made to CHANTILLY HIGH SCHOOL, memo football.

All athletes are required to complete the registration; please click here. 

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

Updates for the Week of May 23, 2022

Good Evening:

We have a few updates to share as we prepare for the final stretch of the school year. 

  1. Athlete Questionnaire/Reflection
  2. ELITE Club Meetings
  3. Off-Season Leader Information/Point System
  4. Camps
  5. Physical Night

Questionnaire/Reflection

We ask all players in the classes of '23, '24, and '25 complete our Athlete Questionnaire

Please take your time and answer all questions honestly, accurately, and thoroughly. Coaches will review the responses to gain a better understanding of the makeup and psychology of our team. Your responses are important and will be kept confidential. Every question helps us gain insight into the players and dynamics of our team. Please take this seriously. This was a valuable resource for our staff in the development of our culture in previous years. Whatever information we can glean from the survey will be used to guide and shape our ELITE Club Culture Meetings. 

ELITE Club

The ELITE Club was established in January 2018 to improve the Culture of Chantilly football. Tuesday, May 31, and Thursday, June 2 will be our first ELITE club meetings of the 2022 season. The location is TBD. The meetings will run from 3:10-4:15. We will update the location via Schoology. 

Off-Season Point System

If you haven't yet read the criteria for earning points in the off-season, please review the parameters here. Spring strength testing is paramount. Testing will continue through this week and into the next. Non-Pfit students should make every attempt to attend after-school workouts. PFit students should attend class!

The first time the system comes into play will be when we issue gear for Combo camp. The top leaders who have registered for camp will get their equipment first. The second round of rewards will occur in August when we issue uniform numbers, locker assignments, and establish our season leadership council. 

Camps

Thank you to the athletes and families who have already submitted their registration for camp. Please see below regarding camp. 

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, thank you for your support of Chantilly Football!

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 March 7, 2022

Good Evening!

The Spring Dead Period has concluded. We wish our athletes the best of luck competing for Chantilly this spring!

We will resume strength training tomorrow after school. 

  • Sessions will continue to run M/W/F, 3:10-4:10
  • Non-Pfit athletes should attend all three sessions.
  • Athletes playing spring sports for CHS but are not in PFit should visit the weight room during Charger Time.
  • If your spring season coach is prohibiting strength training, they are inhibiting your long-term development of the athlete. We will work with you to adjust programming to match the demands of being an in-season athlete. However, cutting off strength training altogether is unnecessary and borderline irresponsible. 
  • Club/Rec/Travel teams do not supersede varsity football.
  • Personal/private training is supplemental and does not take precedent over varsity football; team culture is developed in the weight room and off-season.
  • Success in the fall, both for the individual and the program, is determined in the off-season.

If you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact Coach Curry.

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

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

Good Afternoon:

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!

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 attend Charger Time sessions this week instead. There will be limited spaces during CT. 

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!
