Pre-Season Football Information

Updated: August 7, 2017

Dear Football Family,
I hope all is well and you are enjoying your summer. The following is a list of practice times and important information in regards to the beginning of our football season. Please note that many of you have already submitted forms, physicals and most documents in late May. The only thing that has not been submitted for most of you is the fundraising tickets.
*All players should report to the rubber gym at Leominster high school, for 1:30 PM on August 18th to hand in all forms and fundraising tickets. The rubber gym is behind the CTEi building or at the back of the high school near the football fields.
Practice will begin behind the high school at on August 18th at 2:45 PM and end at 4:45 PM for all teams freshman, JV and Varsity. The first 3 practices (August 18, 19 and 21) are conditioning only and players should wear shorts, cleats, practice shirt and helmet. Anyone who does not have a helmet or practice jersey will get one before the first practice.
The following is a listing of important items to bring on the first day if you have not already submitted them. Players will not be able to participate if these forms are not handed in.
*The emergency form (also known as the blue form), some parents have handed this in, but never signed the back, please go on the LHS website and fill one out and sign it on the back, if you are not sure.
*The user fee for this year is $150 per sport, $75 for the second child and $50 for a 3rd. $75 if you qualify for reduced lunch and $50 if you qualify for free lunch. Checks should be made payable to LHSAA. The fee has been changed from $115 to $150, if you already wrote a check for $115; please just write a check for the difference of $35.
*All players need a physical, which is good for 13 months, as soon as that 13 months is up, your child will be ineligible to play. Please bring a copy of your son’s physical to make sure he is all set. It may be difficult to get an actual physical exam, at this time, if you have not already scheduled one, however, you can go to a walk in clinic and get one, not sure of the cost. The closest clinic is CVS/Pharmacy, 246 Mill Street, Leominster, MA. 01453 or website
*FUNDRAISING TICKETS-Each individual was given 17 tickets to sell for $10 each, any checks should be made out to LBDFC. These should be handed in on August 18th, all sports packs have been ordered and players will receive shorts, tee shirt, pullover and hoodie.
