Team and individual pictures are tomorrow at the Varsity Field. Please wear your uniform, including belt and socks. You must have your money and envelope on the day of pictures.
Thursday's scrimmages are in Wyandotte at Roosevelt High School (540 Eureka Avenue). It is about a 45 minute drive from Canton without traffic. We would love to see our parents come watch the boys as they take on Wyandotte, Monroe and Belleville! It's time to wear that new spirit wear that you all ordered back in May!
Our Adrenaline Card Fundraiser was a huge success and we were able to meet our team goal!!! A big thank you to all of the players that went out and tried to sell their cards and to the families that supported them. As a team reward, the coaches have decided to cancel practice this Saturday (August 18th) for all the boys' hard work regarding Adrenaline Cards.
Today marks our last Two A Day practices for the season! The only change is that Saturday is canceled. Next week will start the regular practice schedule (keep in mind, that the coaches tend to change things but this is how it looks right now).
Freshman will practice 3-6
JV/Varsity will practice 3:30-6:30
Varsity will have their 1st Pasta Dinner on Thursday, August 23rd at Phase 3. It will take place right after their walk through practice. As of right now, the JV and Freshman will have their 1st All Squad Pasta dinner on Wednesday, September 5th. If any parents would like to donate a dessert for our Pasta Dinners, there are slots available on Sign Up Genius.
Thursday, August 9:Tomorrow is our 2nd money collection day...we are only 643 away from our goal. Two players have each sold 60...we need everyone to do their part and sell their 20 cards. Money should be turned in with their name and amount written on the front of the envelope. Checks can be made out to CCFBC if that is easier. If you need more cards, please text or call Mrs. Troszak (734)751-2823.
Friday, August 10: FULL PADS Spirit Ads are due today if you wish to purchase one for your player. Please turn your order form and money into Dave Larson (734)502-2524/6699 Wethersfield Way Canton. The boys love seeing the messages in the Program book!
Saturday, August 11: ALL money and left over cards are turned back in to coaches. Check-In will start at 7:00 am. This is a time consuming process and it takes time to verify that every player's cards and/or money is accounted for. Players will not be allowed on the field until they are cleared regarding Adrenaline Cards. They will be sent home to get ones that are forgotten. If you signed up to bring water/Gatorade and ice for the pizza party, please keep your receipts and give them to Joelle Troszak by 8:00on Saturdaymorning. Please put it in an envelope with your name and your players name and squad so that she can get you reimbursed.

We would still like to have a few more golfers, so if you haven’t turned in your foursome yet, please get it to me. We are getting down to crunch time :) And remember, if you don’t golf, you can still come to the dinner ($35 per person).
Reminder that Jenn Kubacki will be putting together the gift baskets for the ticket auction & the live auction, so all donations can be dropped off at her house (412 Country Club Lane, Canton 48188).

Player Volunteer Opportunity: We would love to have some of the football players help carry golf bags to the carts as our golfers arrive on Aug. 4th. If your player is interested, please email me & I will send a separate email with more details. I would want them to arrive by 11:15 & they would be finished by about 1:15pm.
Parent Volunteer Opportunity: I need one or maybe 2 parents who would be willing to sit at the grand prize Hole in One hole to serve as a witness in case anyone hits a hole in one. One person from 1:25-3:30 and another person from 3:25-5:30ish. Please email me if you would be willing to do this.

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?
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).
The golf registration form and sponsorship form can be found under the 'Documents' tab on the left.

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.
Skills Camp: Last week, Coach Mui and several other coaches worked with the incoming 9th graders at the annual Freshman camp. We would like to welcome all the new families and players. Don't forget that there is another opportunity to get to know your teammates the week of July 23rd during the 2nd Skills Camp Week. If you did not receive your shirt & shorts at the first camp, they will be there for the second one.
Full House T/ 3-4 Camp: This camp is for JV and Varsity players and begins June 17th 2:00-5:00 pm. It is supposed to be super hot, so start hydrating today! Water, Water, Water Camp will be from 5:00-8:00on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
Passing League: This is for some Varsity players and the players will know if they are to attend. This event has been changing for the past few weeks but as of yesterday, here are the details. Monday (6/18) will be held at Livonia Franklin High School from 6:00-7:45 pm. The boys will meet at Phase 3 at 5:00 to carpool.
Workouts/Speed Training: This is for all players! This starts on Monday, June 25th and is held from Monday-Thursday from 10:00-11:30/noon. Monday/Wednesday are in the Weight Room and Tuesday/Thursday are Speed Training in the Gym. If your player has an issue with transportation, please let Coach LaFata know. We may be able to suggest a player that lives in your area that could provide help.
Fan Cloth Fundraiser: Supposedly, it is all arriving on Tuesday at Dianne Suppelsa's house. As soon as it arrives, she would like it out of her garage, so please plan on picking your order up on Wednesday. We will send out an email as soon as it arrives with details as to the pick up times.
Golf Outing: Mark your calendars for August 4th! Heather Vickers is the chairperson for this event (email@example.com). It is a huge undertaking and it would be helpful if you could get your forms in. She is looking for golfers!!! Please don't wait and make her worry if we have enough people or sponsors. If you are golfing, sponsoring a hole, sending in donations, etc...we urge you to do it now! We hope every family will participate in some manner. This is a fun day to spend together as the Canton Chief Football Family. Let's make this year's golf event a success!!
