8th Grade Football Players,

I want to congratulate you and your team on your 8th grade varsity season. You have a lot to be proud of and I’m sure you enjoyed your youth football experience. I enjoyed watching your team play and practice and I saw many things I liked such as 1) good attitudes, 2) team unity 3) strong work ethics, & 4) toughness. It is now time to carry those same traits into the high school program.

Middletown Football begins the New Year with excitement and anticipation for the upcoming season. Our team’s success will be largely determined by the commitment and dedication to our off-season training program. You will improve as a player and more importantly our team will be better if you commit yourself to our after school program. Every activity will be completely supervised from agility work to strength training. The workouts will be designed to introduce you to our exercises and facility as well as help you to become bigger, faster, stronger, and quicker.

Results will not happen over night. You must make a long-term commitment (Jan.-Aug.) to see results. We will provide the time, equipment, and programs but you have to provide the effort and positive attitude. We will start the 8th grade program on Monday, January 30, 2017 and run it every Monday / Wednesday through the end of school. Of course there will not be training when school is closed or dismissed early. You will have access to the high school locker room to change at 3:05p.m. The locker rooms are for changing only any foolishness will not be tolerated. We will begin lifting around 3:10 p.m. and finish around 3:55 p.m.

All 8th grade football players who intend to participate in the training program need to be present on Monday, February 6th and Wednesday, February 8th . The coaches will be instructing the entire group on the proper methods of training and spotting of all exercises on these days.

Middletown High School does not offer transportation home from the high school. The program will end at 4:00 pm sharp. Students must have transportation arranged by parents and students must also have a signed permission form to participate in the lifting program.

This program at MHS is by no means a requirement. It is an opportunity. I suggest you set 5 specific goals for yourself and use this opportunity to help achieve them. If you or your parents have any questions, please call Coach Lynott at 240-236-7422 or Kevin.lynott@fcps.org

If you would like the opportunity to start working out at the high school for the next season, down load the following informational letter from Coach Lynott and get attached permission slip returned.
