*Breakfast will be delicious, and Coach Thompson will give specific team information. The Booster Club will welcome families and share information on how you can get involved in creating a great team environment. All teams will scrimmage, and we’ll have lots of fun with raffles, games, and other entertainment. Watch our Kentlake Football Booster Club Facebook page to see announcements on items to be raffled off! Bring your wallet, so you can participate in all the fun!
We could also use some help that morning, setting up, flipping pancakes, serving, and cleaning up. Sign up here to help:
Pre-Game Team Meals
*ALL players on all teams participate in a pre-game meal each week before the varsity game, starting on August 31st. We ask ALL families to sign up to donate just 3 items throughout the season. Meals consist of pasta, salad, rolls, and fruit. Look for the list at the Pancake Breakfast on the 25th and get signed up early to have your pick of the 3 items you’ll donate.
First Games of the Season!
*The first Varsity game of the year will be a battle against Kentridge on Friday, August 31st at French Field at 7pm. All Kentlake fans are invited to come early, as we will kick off the first home game with a tailgate! Watch for more info to come soon!
*The first JV game of the season will be played away at Kentridge on Monday, September 3rd at 4pm.
*The first C team game will be fought on our home field at Kentlake on Monday, September 3rd at 4pm.
Booster Club Meetings
*We usually meet the 2nd Tuesday of every month, at 7pm in Room 1100 (right inside the front entrance at Kentlake). Please come join in the fun! The teams rely on parents to get involved and lend a helping hand for meals, fun team events, and much more. Many hands make light work, and we’d love to see every player represented. We especially need some incoming freshman families to get involved and keep the booster club going strong into the future.
We are looking forward to a great season ahead with the entire Falcon Family!
