Even with a record 19 teams split among the three two-year band divisions (K/1, 2/3 and 4/5) last year, this season could be even bigger. “That’s certainly our hope,” said Commissioner Dave Wagner. “We’ve altered the schedule a bit this year. The shift allows us to have the Rookie Clinic after HCDE registration. Hopefully, that will let more kids try it before Evals.”
After Evaluations, it’s business as usual. The draft, Academy Practice and team practices follow daily on the heels of Evaluations. The pre-season culminates with the Labor Day Jamboree on Saturday, September 1. With the exception of a two-week respite for Fall Break, it’s a seven-week season, including Playoff Saturday and Champions Day – all before Thanksgiving.
Online registration will open in mid-July with a new process that should streamline things for coaches and parents. In-person registrations will be at the Town Hall Gym on successive Saturdays, July 28 and August 4 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Evaluations and the last chance to register will be on Hedges Field on Saturday, August 11, with times announced on the website, www.SignalFootball.com.
