Canton Football-July Updates


  •                 Summer Workouts are still going on for the next two weeks, so please continue to show up and keep working hard on the field and in the weight room.  If you haven't been able to attend, it is not too late to join your teammates!  MondayWednesday, and Thursday start at the Varsity Field and Tuesday starts at the practice field by Phase 3.  All the workouts end at Phase 3 in the Weight Room.  The workouts are from 10:00-11:30/noon.
  •                 ​Passing League is over on Monday evenings for the Varsity players that were attending.
  •                 2nd Freshman Camp will be July 23rd-26th from 5-7:30 at the JV Field.  It is the field by Plymouth off of Beck Road.
  •                 Equipment Handout is on July 30th at Phase 3 (Varsity is at 5:00, JV is at 6:00 and Freshman is at 6:30).  The players will get their Mandatory Practice Gear Order during this time too. 
  •                  ​Adrenaline Cards will be handed out at Equipment Handout with some great incentives for the players!  This is our largest fundraiser and we need everyone to commit to selling at least 20 cards.  Thankfully, we have chosen to roll-back the price to $20 so that should make it much easier for everyone to sell.  Start reaching out to your friends and families and letting them know you need their support.  It is a quick two week fundraiser and then we can celebrate all our hard work with a pizza party on the last day (Saturday, August 11)!
  •                 Testing Week has slightly changed times so please mark your calendars.  All three days are at the Varsity Field.  
                                            Tuesday, July 31 (6:00-7:15 pm)

  •            Coach LaFata has chosen to cancel Friday's All Squads Conditioning (August 3rd) and let the players use this day as a Card Selling Day.  This means he expects all the players to hit the pavement and go out and sell their cards.  The first check-in is on Tuesday, August 7th and the goal is that every player will have sold 15 by then.  
  •                The Golf Outing is just 3 weeks away!   It is wonderful that Heather Vickers has offered to chair this event but she needs our help by golfing, getting donations, sponsoring a sign or hole, etc...  This is a fun day...please help us make it a success!   
  •              PRIVIT/Physicals are required before your player can practice.  I can not stress how important it is not to wait until the last minute.  It will speed up the players at Equipment Handout if everything is in the system before Thursday, July 26th.  The directions for setting up an account are in the red folder that was handed out at Meet the Coaches Night if you need help.

Golf Outing - August 4th!

The 16th Annual Canton Chiefs Golf Tournament is August 4th. We need golfers!!  We would like to have at least 100 golfers for a shot gun start.  

How can you participate?
1. Golf
2. Sponsor:  If you are not a golfer, we still need your help!!  Do you own a business or know someone who does?  Sponsoring a cart or hole is a great way to advertise your business and help out your Canton Chiefs football team.  Your family can also sponsor a cart or hole. 
3. Donate:  Ask the businesses who take YOUR money; hair salons, nail salons, lawn maintenance companies, insurance companies, financial advisors, restaurants, etc.   These donations are tax-deductible.  (The letter with our tax-ID is attached).

Canton Football/Fundraiser Pick Up/PRIVOT/ Summer Workouts
  • REMINDER: Don't forget to update your player's PRIVOT account or create one if you have not already done so.  Please remember that the physical needs to be downloaded to your account.  (Physicals must be dated after April 15, 2018 in order to play.)  The directions for PRIVOT are in the red folder that every player received at Meet the Coaches night.
  • Coach LaFata would like to remind everyone that next week is a mandated down week.  Therefore, there will not be any workouts or Passing League.  He also wants to remind everyone that the summer workout schedule is:
    Monday/Wednesday:  Players start at the Varsity Field and then walk over to Phase 3
    Tuesday/Thursday:  Players are at Phase 3 for the entire time.  
    (Therefore, summer workouts always end at Phase 3.)
  • Finally, the Passing League (Varsity players only) will resume on Monday, July 9 at 6 pm at Franklin.
