Purchase Officials Visit Update

After reviewing all of the changes that are taking place with the start of football and speaking to Fred at Purchase Officials we are canceling his vist this coming Thursday the 30th. We will reschedule later in August once we can get a firm date as to when football will be starting.

There are tentative dates for practice to start from mid-August to the end of August and games starting sometime in September. Once we get confirmation about when practice will start and firm schedules I will let you know. It seems to keep changing weekly.

This Thursday (July 30) is the last day we will have new officials training at Trinity Prep HS. Roland we be there this Thursday from 6 to 7:30 pm  if you have registered and want to pick up your rule book.

New Officials Training Classes will begin on Monday, July 6th and meet each Monday and Thursday at Trinity Prep school through August 3rd. Classes will run from 6 to 8 pm on the football field. If it rains we will go a large classroom or other space in the school that night. Remember to bring your face mask if we go to a classroom. We will work on social distancing when on the field and in the classroom. Sorry for the late notice and the start of the training classes but with the restrictions the schools have in place we are appreciative of Trinity Prep for allowing us to use their facilities.
