Calling all athletes: Football season and practice begin Monday August 6th at 6:00 am. We meet at the Football Field House (Hope Elementary School Rm. #16). We will provide shorts, shirts, helmets and all other equipment minus the shoes and socks. If you don’t have cleats yet no problem. We have 2 large boxes of cleats that have been left for use or for the taking if you like them.
Our goal is for everyone to have an opportunity to play the game. If you have played for years, played a little, played flag, never played and watched it on TV or never have been exposed to football, we will teach you the fundamentals and correct way to play so that we minimize injuries and make the game fun and competitive for all. We maintain a “No Cut” policy. You come out to practice and put in the work, you’ve made the team. You will see playing time in games.
Not only will we teach you all aspects of the game, but life lessons along the way. All of the Hope football coaches are Christian men dedicated to Biblical principles and mentoring the players we have along those paths. All coaches are licensed by the State of NM and have passed annual background checks as well as annual training classes in Coaching Fundamentals and concussion recognition and prevention.
It’s time to get off the couch, put down the controller and the remote and experience “Brotherhood and Team” with your peers to play one of the greatest games in the USA. Everyone is welcome from 8th graders to Seniors in High School. You have a place here.
Gary Beck, Head Coach Hope Football
