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!

Updates for week of March 17

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!

Updates for week of March 3

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!
