The HMS football program invites 6th graders to participate
Please read the following before making your decision about trying out.
HMS has 2 teams (varsity and junior varsity) with 35 players each. Unlike recreation football, playing time may be very limited for some players.
Slots for sixth graders depend of the number of 7th and 8th graders coming out for the team.
Chances increase for players that may be slightly older, bigger, or have exceptional speed.
Players will not be allowed to participate on both a recreation team and the school team.
It is a parent’s decision when their child should begin lifting weights. Athletes mature at different ages, so in middle school we expect a wide degree of ability and performance. Our summer program is open to all middle school students who plan on trying out for the team in the fall. Our summer workouts are designed to equip future players to develop a strong work ethic and skills they need to succeed. Our workout program is specifically designed to teach correct technique using light weight and high repetitions.
