Summer 2020 Parent & Player Information

Additional information will be coming from the Booster Club, so watch your emails and check this web site frequently!

To parents/guardians of Olathe East football players:

I hope your families are healthy and doing well. This letter is to provide you with important information as we prepare for the summer. We are certainly in uncharted territory with all of the school related cancellations. At this point, I don’t have any information regarding summer activities being cancelled, delayed, or modified. We will be prepared and ready to begin summer workouts as planned, yet we are on stand-by if information changes within the next two (2) months.

I am excited to have the opportunity to coach our players this summer. I love the process of summer workouts and really enjoy seeing the players develop. We know that in order for player development to occur, we need to have structured and organized plans. That is my commitment. Players also must be committed towards individual & TEAM development which happens through consistent attendance and focused attention and effort.

Please know that we will make sure that all of our football equipment is properly disinfected and cleaned before re-issued to our players this summer. Again, we will plan our work and work our plan this summer. If we are notified by KSHSAA or the Olathe School District that we need to operate differently, we’ll adjust accordingly and make things work. I fully expect and look forward to a fun summer coaching our players.

All players are expected to come to every morning workout and football related activity ready to compete. It is critical that players attend all workouts and activities because during those days we begin to install the offense/defense, teach the basic skills/techniques of each position, and evaluate the players for the upcoming football season. If there are any dates that conflict with your summer plans, please let me know. Otherwise, we will expect every player to be in full attendance.
Below is pertinent information that I usually cover during our spring parent meeting.
