OREGON TEAM CAMP
From July 4-8 the Hyacks will be back on the Oregon coast for Team Camp. The camp takes place at Camp Rilea Army Reserve Base in Warrenton, OR. Fifty-two players (Varsity and JV) will take part in practices and scrimmages against American schools. Everyone selected should have received an emailed registration form and checklist of what to bring. If you have not received it please check the website at: www.hyackfootball.com.
The registration fee for the camp (which includes housing and food during camp) will again be taken care of by our gracious sponsor, Ryan Beedie (thanks Ryan!). Players will however need to pay $100 for transportation (which can be done online) and bring some money for food on the way down and back ($40-50 US).
If they haven't already done so, please make sure the players have their completed registration forms turned in and have proof of citizenship with them when the team leaves. Departure time is 9:30 am on Monday, July 4th from Mercer Stadium. Players should arrive by 9 am.
We would encourage all Hyack families to make the trip to the Oregon Coast for a football-style summer vacation! The camp will be held 5 miles south of Astoria, OR. For more information on the area, including accommodations: http://www.astoria-usa.com/
MVP TEAM CAMP
The Hyacks will also be hosting the 2nd annual MVP Team Camp, June 27-29 at NWSS. Teams from across BC and Washington will take part. All NWSS players are able to take part in the morning sessions at 9:30 am. We will be asking for volunteers to assist with this event.
JULY & AUGUST
Following team camp, for the balance of the summer, the weight room will be open Mondays (2 to 3:30 pm) and Thursdays (11 am to 1:30 pm). There will also be speed/agility training on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 to 5 pm. Cost for the speed training is $100 and can be paid online at www.hyackfootball.com.
Fall camp begins on Sunday, Aug 18th with speed and fitness testing. The first practice is Aug 19th. Fall camp is mandatory and we expect that all players will be back from vacation and rearrange their work schedules in time to take part. The complete summer schedule can be found here.
