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!

Updates for the Week of July 26, 2021

It is hard to believe, but as of Monday, July 26, we are one week away from the official start of the 2021 season! Our final week of workouts will be adjusted slightly due to coach coverage. Monday/Wednesday will only be agility/speed work with TrueAP. There will be no weight room on Monday/Wednesday. Tuesday and Thursday will be normal sessions led by CHS coaches. Please be sure to review the pre-season checklist to ensure you are ready to start at 8am on Monday, August 2. As always, thank you for your 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. 

Thank you!

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 28, 2021

Good Evening:

Thank you to all the athletes and families who have contributed to our amazing turnout thus far this summer! We have had nine straight sessions of 60+ athletes in attendance! It is hard to believe but we are only 35 days from the start of varsity practice!

Please be sure to review the previous blasts for more information regarding: 

  • Pre-Season Checklist
    • Paperwork
    • Policies
    • Volunteer Opportunities 
  • Team Camp
  • workouts
  • TrueAP Registration
  • The VHSL Dead Period (no organized activities for any CHS sports July 5-10)

Due to the roofing project above the weight room, workouts on Tuesday, Wednesday, and possibly Thursday will be outdoors for both lifting and running. PLEASE be sure to bring extra water. We are mindful of the weather and will give frequent breaks and adjust our training as appropriate.

Following the Dead Period, morning training sessions (Monday-Thursday, 8:30-10:45) will resume July 12. Team Camp will be held at Westfield from July 12-15 from 5-8 pm. Click here for registration information. 

Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions.

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

Important Update Regarding Physical Form

Good Afternoon:

It came to our attention this morning that the link we've shared on our checklist went to an outdated physical form. The previous form is apparently invalid and won't be accepted. 

I apologize profusely for the error. We shared the information and links that we were provided to us.  

The new form can be found here. The link on our checklist has also been updated.

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:

It has been a great two days for Tilly football! We had over 60 players join us today! 

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. 

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

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 grades 9-12. 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!
