Our voluntary season training session will kick off in May with our free Speed & Agility clinic. Afterwards, we will post times for voluntary heat acclamation and light training at Abbotts Bridge. Generally 6:30-7:30 on weeknights.

In early June, the high school will host a Jr Titans Football Clinic. Details to come soon.

 

We will start official practice in mid/late July, determined by league rules. There will be a 1 week period of no pads/helmets. Followed by 1 week of pads/helmets but no contact. Then we will begin our full practice schedule.

 

Before school begins, we may have practice Monday - Friday. During school, it will only be allowed Monday-Wednesday. League rules may restrict practice times for our Green Team, scroll down to Eligibility to learn about Green/Blue teams.

ELIGIBILITY

Although we are the Northview feeder program. We typically field (2) teams each season. Our Green Team is composed of 6th/7th graders and is open to any player that does not reside in Forsyth County, they play in a Forsyth County recreational league. Our Blue Team is  composed of 7th/8th graders they play in the competitive GMSAA league. Our 7th graders are assessed during preseason and are placed on which team would be appropriate for their development.

Our football program is primarily for rising 6th - 8th grade but we do allow rising 5th grade players to play up.

K-5 flag and tackle players are encouraged to join the Johns Creek Hawks football program (jchawks.org)

PLAYING LOCATIONS & TIMES

Our program is volunteer based, so our operating hours are outside normal business hours to help accommodate working families.

Football is a team sport, coaches expect players to be at all practices and games. If a player does not attend , it is disruptive and unfair to the other participants. We ask that during our official season & post season, you not have other commitments during times Mon-Wed and Saturdays. Please always communicate with your head coach if your child is unable to make a practice or game as soon as possible , so the coach can rearrange any plans he may have.

 

Our home field is located at Northview High School , 10625 Parsons Rd, Johns Creek, GA 30097. 

Practices are generally held at the main football field. However, if unavailable , we utilize the Abbotts Bridge Rd field and the Parsons Rd field.

 

We will officially practice Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 6:30PM - 8:30PM. Exception: Until the beginning of the school, practices may occur Monday-Friday (TBD).

Our games are on Saturdays at various times. Many Green Team games will be in Forsyth Country Parks (Lanier Land, Midway, Sharon Springs). The Blue Team games will be against other feeder programs in metro Atlanta at their represented high schools.

VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS

In order for our program to operate , be successful and keep fees low; we must have parent volunteering and involvement. Each family is required to fulfill (3) spots during the season.

We ask that our community help us with these events as well , as they assist us with fundraising.
