2021-22 Parent Meeting Letter

Menomonie 8th Grade Football 2021

Greetings 8th Graders,

Hopefully, you have enjoyed a restful, invigorating, and fun summer. As we get closer to the start of the school year, I can provide you with a few particulars about the start of our 2021 football season. If for any reason this changes, we will let you know as soon as possible. 

There will be an informational and equipment night on Thursday August 26 at 3:00 pm. The first practice is Tuesday, August 31. Each day we practice from 3:10-5:15 in the fields to the north of the school. Because each of us grows at a different pace, we split into two squads (once we are in gear): a heavy weight and a light weight. There is no set weight that we use to establish what team you will play on, and in many cases, your body development plays a role in how we determine where you play. Our number one concern is your safety! Our first three days are without equipment (except a helmet). 

If you have not had a physical in the last two years, you will need to get one before you can practice. If you had one last year, please get an alternate year card filled out as soon as possible. Forms can be found on our website or contact the school office at (715) 232-1673 ext. 30111.
