Valley Christian Football 2018

 

Dear Valley Christian Football Families,

 

We are excited to welcome you to another year of football at Valley Christian High School! It is our tradition to post this letter for all families of players interested in being a part of the football program for the 2018 season. It is our privilege to work with each of your student-athletes and to continue to build on the God-honoring traditions this program is founded upon.

 

Please read this packet carefully as it contains important information and dates for the upcoming season. If you have any questions after reading the packet in its entirety, please call the Athletic Office at (408) 513-2455.

 

Spirit Packs

 

All Valley Christian football players will be responsible for buying a “spirit pack”. The JV and freshman spirit pack will consist of team shorts, team T-shirt, game socks and a practice jersey for $60.00. These items are for the athletes to keep.

 

The spirit pack for Varsity athletes will be significantly different as the Varsity players will also be buying their pro-style Home game jerseys. The cost for the Varsity spirit pack will be $145.00. The game jersey for the Varsity players should be a one-time purchase unless the student wants to buy a new jersey each season. If your student is wearing the same home varsity jersey as last year, the cost of your spirit pack is $60.00. If your student-athlete has either changed his number or lost his jersey the cost will be $145.00. Please make checks payable to VCS and turn in your spirit pack money on or before the first day of practice.

 

Athletes will not receive their practice jerseys (and therefore cannot practice) until the spirit pack fees have been paid. If the fees for spirit packs pose a significant financial strain on your family, please contact Coach Machado to work out alternative arrangements.

 

Physicals

 

A complete Physical Examination Form must be turned in to the Athletic Office in order for any athlete to participate in any sport at Valley Christian High School. Sports physicals are kept on file for one (1) calendar year and must be valid through the entire season of sport (i.e. we do not accept physicals that expire mid-season). Players will not be able to participate in practice until a completed physical form has been received. All forms can be found online by visiting www.GoWarriors.net, click on “Resources”, then “Forms”.
