Fall 2016 Abbott Middle School Football
This is going to be amazing season! We have many young men who we are fielding for the team. See the high school athletics website for a schedule.
Abbott Eagles football is open to any student in the 7th or 8th grade. Players will learn the game of football and how to play as a team. We will also work with players on sportsmanship, time management and responsibility. Playing football for Abbott increases school pride and a sense of a job well done. Experiences like hearing your name on the afternoon announcements and wearing your game jersey to school, along with playing with friends and classmates increases the excitement in the building as the season unfolds.
The Abbott Eagle team practices after school until 5pm. We practice every school day of the week and our games are on Wednesdays and once in a while on a Tuesday. There is NO weekend commitment for practice or games.
We are guaranteed to play in at least 6 games during the season. We play home and away games against teams from Farmington, Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Southfield and Ferndale. The official schedule will be available in September on the WBHS website under athletics.
The items every player will need in order to be a part of the team include:
o Physical form
o Consent for treatment form
o Pay to participate funds paid
o Football cleats
o 2 combination locks, 1 for Abbott and 1 for WBHS
o T-shirt and shorts are available
All forms listed above are available on the WBHS website under athletics. The Pay to Participate forms can be found on the site as well.
$200 first sport or $100 if you qualify for the free or reduced lunch program
You must complete the pay to play before any equipment will be given to you. All questions involving payment must be directed to the athletic department at WBHS.
Coaching the Abbott Eagles will be Coach Keith Garrison and Coach Timothy Larson. We are very excited to be a part of this team and are going to be ready to go on the first day of school. Between us we have more than 30 years of football coaching experience. We enjoy teaching the basics and improving day to day.
Our plan is to practice two times a week at Abbott and three days at WBHS.
