Reserve, LA. - In the home opener for the Jr. Wildcats, it looked as though rain would ruin the games. However, the clouds provided for a cooler day and all 3 of the Jr. Wildcats varsity teams took advantage of the cooler weather defeating the Eastside Raiders in all 3 games. The 9 & 10 team got things going in a nail-biter that found the Jr. Wildcats trailing 7-6 heading into the 4th quarter. The offense got in gear taking up all but a few seconds of the 4th quarter to secure the victory. Meanwhile the 7 & 8 and 11 & 12 year old teams won in dominating fashion.
The Jr. Wildcats take on the Donaldsonville Tigers next week @ East St. John Stadium with a 2PM kickoff. Entry to the game is $4 for adults and $1 for Kids. As always No coolers or outside food & drinks are allowed in the stadium.
Parents, we need your help with player practice and game attendance. Practice is Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays. We ask players to report to practice at 5:30. Player stretching begins at 5:45. Stretching is importing because it helps cutdown on the possibility of muscle related injuries. Practice begins at 6PM and last until 7:30. We ask that players make a minimum of 2 practices a week. As coaches, we will play the players that come to practice. Coaches make every attempt to give every player at least 1 play in the games, however, we will not put any players who are not prepared to play on the field. The more players that regularly attend practice, the easier it is for coaches to make sure that everyone plays.
On game days, we ask our players to report 1 to 1 1/2 hours before the scheduled game time. This is done to give the coaches time to verify player books for each team. It also gives the coaches time to get the players outfitted and also give the team time to properly stretch and make any last minute game adjustments. Our teams are undefeated approaching the midpoint of the season. The only way for us to continue that success is with your help and cooperation. If your son won't make it to a game, please let us know in advance. Working together is the only way we will achieve our goal; and that is for all 4 of our teams to make it to the Super Bowl.
Parents, while we encourage all parents to participate by attending practice and games, we have to draw the line at having parents on the sidelines on gamedays. Unless you are on the coaching staff for your child's team or have volunteered to work the down marker and chains for home games, no parents will be allowed on the sidelines for both home and road games. If you are not on the coaching staff and come to the sideline, you will be asked to return to the stands. We appreciate your cooperation with this request
