Updates for the Week of January 2, 2023

Happy New Year! We hope that everyone had a safe and relaxing break! 

The 2023 Off-Season will begin on Monday, January 9, 2023. We want to allow everyone the opportunity to transition back to the routine of school this week before we officially start our off-season. 

Workouts

  • Who: Anyone planning on playing football in fall 2023 and NOT currently enrolled in Personal Fitness or participating in a Winter sport for Chantilly HS
  • What: Strength Training Sessions
  • When: Monday/Wednesday/Friday 3:10 pm-4:15 pm
  • Where: Chantilly HS weight room
  • Why: A year-long commitment to strength training is necessary for all athletes who wish to be competitive as individuals and as a program.  

Off-Season Plans

Our off-season will begin solely with a focus on strength training. The expectation is that all athletes not in Personal Fitness or playing a winter sport for Chantilly attend all three sessions a week. Although the season seems far off, success in the fall requires year-round commitment and slow, steady, consistent progress. Successful teams train hard and together year-round. Sessions are Monday/Wednesday/Friday 3:10-4:10. Competitive programs do not simply show up in the summer and hope for the best. A strong strength program is only the first step to success in the fall, but it is essential. Attendance will be taken each session and tracked throughout the off-season. Please see below for information regarding our off-season point system. 

Enrolling in Personal Fitness is the easiest way to strength train consistently and with teammates. Since 2018, we have averaged over 90% enrollment in PFit with eligible football players(sophomores through seniors). There is a direct correlation between success on the field since 2019 and the increase in football player enrollment in PFit. 

We will eventually begin our ELITE Club leadership/culture meetings, and in the spring, we will conduct off-season practices ("Green Days") and attend a camp in June. We will share more details about Green Days and our camps in the coming months. 

Off-Season Point System 

Please take a moment to review our Off-Season Point System. We established these criteria following the 2017 season to further incentivize participation in off-season activities. However, we have been fortunate that most of our athletes have been intrinsically motivated to do well in recent years; therefore, the leaderboard only served as an additional form of healthy competition and accountability. 

The concept is simple: do right and earn points. Outside of losing points for negative behaviors, this system is based entirely on rewarding positive behaviors, not punishing negative behaviors. Over the years, several athletes have provided feedback regarding incentives/rewards, and that has helped shape the criterion. The most frequently identified incentive was the selection of equipment and jersey numbers; therefore, among other rewards and recognition throughout the off-season, the top point earners will have the first choice of equipment and jersey numbers.

There are plenty of opportunities to rise (or fall) on the leaderboard throughout the off-season. Please find the Scoring Criteria here.

Thank You, SENIORS!

Families and athletes in the class of 2023, thank you for the support, passion, and dedication you have continually demonstrated over the past four years! You made many contributions on and off the field, and we will miss you! This blast will be the last sent via the Remind Text system to those families in the 2023 class. If you have younger football players, please elect to receive alerts for their corresponding class.

As always, thank you for your continued support of Chantilly Football!

SAVE THE DATE: End-of-Season Celebration and Meeting

Good Morning!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Our program-wide banquet (all grades 9-12) will be held on December 14, 2022.  

We will celebrate the season's accomplishments and give the class of 2023 a warm send-off. Additionally, a portion of the banquet will be dedicated to sharing information regarding the upcoming season--including the very important off-season--so we hope to have all grade levels and parents/guardians in attendance. The Off-Season will officially begin in January.

More information regarding location and time to follow.

Updates for the Week of November 14, 2022

Good Evening:

This is always the hardest update to send: end-of-season information. We are incredibly proud of the effort given by the 2022 Chantilly Chargers. The senior class selflessly led the program with tenacity and pride. Leadership isn't easy, but the young men in the class of 2023 took the challenge head-on and helped the program do what many did not think was possible, earn the right to play in Week 11. The class of 2023 has been a part of four straight playoff appearances, a Region Championship appearance, a 3-1 record vs "The Team West Down 50", and, more importantly, demonstrated that "WE football" is far greater than "me" football. Thank you, seniors: you will be missed. I am proud to welcome you to the fraternity that is Tilly Football alumni. 

Immediately after school tomorrow, Monday, November 14, we will have a final team meeting and collect all issued equipment. All players who have not yet turned in equipment/participated in the playoff game should plan on attending. We will work quickly to collect and dismiss. Please see previous blasts for more details.

  • Plan to return all issued equipment: helmet, shoulder pads, lock, jerseys, pants, belts, etc. 

Players should bring a bag to gather their personal belongings. We WILL DISCARD anything left behind. The wrestling team deserves a clean team room, so please plan on staying until you are checked out by a coach. I will collect the helmets and shoulder pads during Personal Fitness to accelerate the process. 

We hate to conclude the 2022 season, but all great things must come to an end. It has been an honor. 

As always, thank you for your continued support of Chantilly Football.

Updates for the Week of October 31, 2022 (sorry for the delay)

Good Afternoon:

I apologize for the delayed update. 

  • Freshmen and Developmental will travel to Madison this evening.
  • Varsity will host tomorrow (senior night).  

Again, we have been asked to seek volunteers. We were drastically understaffed for last week's ticket takers. Please consider volunteering to work the gate, especially if you are the parent/guardian of a freshman or sophomore. Activities' staff had to work tickets, thus creating shortages/issues elsewhere. 

***VOLUNTEER HERE***

Please see below (last week's blast) for information regarding end-of-season procedures and expectations:

End-of-Season Information

The season has flown by, so here are some details regarding end-of-season procedures for your planning purposes. 

Should we make the playoffs, athletes do not need/cannot attend tryouts for winter sports while participating in another season. Per state and FCPS policy, accommodations will be made for athletes who wish to participate in winter sports upon the conclusion of our season. 

  • Uniforms and equipment must be turned in by those who will not be on the playoff roster.
  • All belongings must be cleaned out of lockers.
  • We will have to issue Financial obligations for missing equipment/cloth. We've issued every player approximately $1,000 worth of gear.
  • ATHLETES must turn in their equipment; we cannot credit an athlete with the return of gear left in the locker room. 
  • PLEASE NOTE: we cannot hold onto personal belongings! After a week, we will discard unclaimed items left behind.

For Varsity/Developmental:

Following the conclusion of the varsity season (whenever that may be), we will have a final meeting the following Monday afternoon. That will include locker cleanout, equipment return, awards voting, etc. 

Freshmen

Freshmen will clean out lockers/return equipment immediately following their final game. 

Banquet

A program-wide banquet will take place in December. All members of the program are encouraged to attend. Not only is it a celebration, but for families of underclassmen, we also share important information regarding the off-season.

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly football!

Developmental Game, Photo Buttons, and Chantilly Ties

Good Evening:

Reminder, developmental players will attend practice tomorrow afternoon. We will dismiss them from practice at 4:45, so they can have a chance to eat something before traveling to Robinson. Players who can't leave and come back should plan on bringing something small to eat between practice and the game.

The busses are expected at 6 pm. Players should be in the locker room ready to travel by 5:50.

Buttons and Team Ties

Thanks to our team mothers, we have headshot buttons available for purchase. There are also Chantilly neckties available for purchase ($20). The ties will be available during our team meal on Thursday night. Freshmen are also encouraged to purchase to show some Tilly pride!

Good Morning!

We hope everyone is enjoying Labor Day weekend! Thank you to everyone who came out Thursday night to cheer on the squad! The young men overcame several challenging circumstances leading up to the game- a short week for prep- ended practice early Monday due to home field hockey games, indoor practice Tuesday, and even a fire alarm during the team meal/uniform distribution!

DMGB to the tune of 42-0!

Fundraising

Fundraising is a necessary evil. Unfortunately, a small portion of the program has been carrying the load thus far. As we previously shared, each athlete's goal is to bring in $500 through fundraising efforts. We are not suggesting that families need to or should contribute that much themselves. 

We have several options to contribute:

Donations

    • Our online donation site100% of the proceeds go to the program.
    • Cash or check donations made out to Chantilly HS memo football. 
    • If you do not have friends and family who can contribute to the effort through this site, see below for a traditional "get out in the community and sell stuff" fundraiser we all know and love!  

Coupon Card Sales

  • This is a traditional fundraiser. Robinson's football team, a comparable program, raised almost $30,000 using this fundraiser with the same company. 
  • We keep 80% of the money raised. 
  • This is an excellent option for those who do not have family or friends who can donate directly to the program via the donation site
  • 126 players have signed up for the fundraiser; 57 have sold 0 cards. 
  • Of the 57, only nine have contributed to the donation fundraiser. 
  • Nearly 40% of the athletes in our program have not contributed. 
  • We want to avoid having a fundraiser blitz day. Please get out and sell...and let us not speak of fundraising again...until next year :)

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly Football!

Varsity/Developmental

  • We will follow our usual practice schedule Monday through Wednesday this week.

Buses can stay there but that is where teams will be dropped off and picked up. There is no space for a bus to turn around in the parking lot!

Updates for the Week of August 1: FOOTBALL IS BACK!

Good Afternoon!

The time has come! Tomorrow, August 1, is the first day of official practice for the varsity program (sophomores, juniors, and seniors)! Please see below for essential program updates:

CHS Football Updates (All Levels)

Paperwork/RSchool

All athletes must complete paperwork and RSchool registration before the start of practice! PLEASE NOTE YOU CAN NOT PARTICIPATE until all the requirements are met. Please review previous blasts for more information. 

Missing practice due to paperwork is considered an Unexcused Absence. Additionally, football requires a five-day acclimation period (three days of helmets only, followed by two days of helmets and shoulder pads) before a player may participate in competition. Therefore, missing a day this week will preclude participation in the Purple-White game. Additionally, missing two days will prevent an athlete from participating in our first scrimmage against Fairfax.

Spirit Pack

The spirit pack is $50. It consists of a new practice jersey, a compression shirt worn on gamedays, and a mouthguard. 

  • Practice jerseys and mouthguards will be issued on the first day of practice. Many players have already received their mouthguards. 
  • Payment can be made via Myschoolbucks or cash or check. Please make checks out to CHS and include your athlete's name on the memo line. 

We have worked hard to keep the cost down for families. For example, both South County and Westfield shared their information via social media, and their respective compression shirts were $38. 

Please reach out to Coach Curry if payment is an issue. 

Fundraisers

The goal for each athlete is to bring in at least $500 through fundraising efforts.

Discount Cards:

 The discount card fundraiser will be held throughout August. Once we receive the cards, athletes can sell them in advance of our "Blitz Day." If an athlete sells all their cards before 8/20, he may opt-out of participating in the blitz.

Sponsorship Opportunities:

Do you know a business owner who would like to who'd like to sponsor Chantilly football? Please share this information with them! Their sponsorship is more than "just" a donation. We will share their company information on various printed materials, thank them at home games over the PA, and share their company's information on our social media pages!

  • If an athlete procures $1,000 or more in sponsorships, he may opt-out of the card fundraiser altogether!
  • The window to sponsor the program will close on 8/20!

Donation Site:

We have had tremendous success over the years using two different fundraising companies to solicit donations from family and friends. It is a simple concept: players bring in 20 email addresses/cell numbers of family and friends. The companies would help get email addresses and cell phone numbers loaded into their system, and they would blast our information using automated emails and text messages. It was efficient and effective. 

The downside was they kept up to 25% of the proceeds for essentially creating a distribution list. 

We decided to drop the generic site and tasteless automated text/email messages and created our own personalized site where 100% of the donation goes to the program. We hate asking for handouts, but if you have family and friends who'd like to support Chantilly Football, please share our donation page with them! 

Freshmen Notes

  • Freshmen are "off" until their first official day, 8/15. Enjoy the time off!

Updates for the Week of July 18, 2022

Good Afternoon:

We hope everyone has had a great weekend! 

Updates: Week of July 18 

  1. Workouts will continue in the morning this week but will be modified slightly due to camp. Monday and Wednesday will follow our usual summer schedule (830-1030); we will lift and work with TrueAP. Tuesday and Thursday, we will only lift. We will start at 830 and be done by 945 on those days. 
  2. The camp will be held 5-8 at Westfield HS. They will take registrations at the door.

Fundraisers

More information will follow, but a few quick points: 

  • Our primary sources of income are a coupon card sale, online donations, and heat pressing t-shirts (and other products). We will share details about each effort in the next few weeks.
  • We are nearly 100% autonomous financially and need everyone to help with the effort to raise funds. 
  • Our card sale will begin in early August and culminates in a "Blitz Day" (door-to-door and shopping centers) after pictures on August 20.
  • The online donation site is up and running! You may begin sharing with friends and family. The link can also be used for donations toward TrueAP payments. 

Program Sponsors

To help supplement our income, we are once again looking for program sponsors. We had tremendous success with this initiative in 2019 and hope to do even better this season. 

Please visit here to learn more!

Save the Date!

Catch the first glimpse of the 2022 Chargers during our Purple-White game on August 6! We hope to return to a festive atmosphere offering concessions, selling team gear, etc., all proceeds benefit the program. 

Changes to Dates

  1. Pictures and the fundraising blitz day are scheduled for August 20 for freshmen and varsity/developmental teams.  
  2. The Freshmen and Developmental scrimmages vs. Falls Church have been moved to Monday, 8/29, due to Falls Church's Back-to-School-Night. 

As always, thank you for your support of Chantilly Football!
