The season is here, let’s get off to a great start!


New parents, players and cheerleaders GET DIRECTIONS… Pleasant Valley field.

Buy several now, and follow the instructions to mold to fit, put one on the helmet and one in a plastic bag for every vehicle you may drive this season.
  • Supporter and protective cup (please make sure the fit is correct before practice to avoid unnecessary discomfort. Have them run, squat, stretch, crawl, and dance around to make sure the fit is appropriate).

Be sure to to hydrate by drinking 16-24 ounces of water during the day prior to practice. No heavy meals before practice, only light snacks. Eliminate the sugar and syrupy sodas and replace with water. Find out more about heat safety here. http://usafootball.com/health-safety/heat-preparedness

HOME GAMES BEGIN THIS WEEK!!!

A few tips to make our home games a great experience for our players and fans:

  1. Arrive early – Players need to be at the field and ready to warm up 1 hour before the game.
  2. Parking – Due to the wet weather coaches and officials will not be allowed to park on the west side of the field. The parking immediately to the right of the entrance will be roped-off for head coaches, officials, organization staff and handicapped parking only.
  3. Arrive early for your game day duties; concession stand, chain gang, etc.
  4. The smoking area is on the north side of the concession stand.
  5. Please place trash in trash cans located around the bleachers.
  6. Be polite to all fans, including the opposing team. Let’s stay classy Giants.
  7. Please keep children off of the sideline ropes.
