This upcoming Saturday is a great opportunity for mothers, sisters, and all female supporters of the Willamette Football Program to participate in a mini-camp. Starting at 12pm, participants will attend a film and strategy session to break down some football basics and Willamette concepts. The second half of the day will be spent on the field (or in the gym, depending on weather), doing position-specific drills. If you’ve ever wanted to catch passes off the jugs machine, show your cutting ability around the bags, or drive the blocking sled, this is a fantastic opportunity! Register here for the 25$ mini-camp.
The 5-man sled purchased with our Paddles Up bids from the Dinner Auction have arrived. These will allow both Oline and Dline to work power, leverage, and footwork. The Blaster for ball-security and knee-drive is also on its way. Thank you to everyone in Wolverine Nation who continues to support us.
Team Camp is only 7 days away. It is not to late to get your friends signed up to go. Please email Coach Wolfram if you need more info on Camp. firstname.lastname@example.org
Last week of Summer Weight Room Monday 7/11 – 7/13&14 @ 7pm
Wednesday and Thursday this week we will have a short lifting session followed by two installation practices for camp which players will need their Helmets and Shoulder pads.
Finals are over and student-athletes are enjoying the sun of summer. Time to hit the weight room and become a better athlete.
Wolverines have had a few passing tournaments this spring. Highlight thus far has been the Seaside passing tournament where our Varsity group took 1st place and our JV group took 3rd place overall. We had some bumps along the way but we can all say we are better at our individual jobs now.
One of the most important pieces to a successful football program is the strength and conditioning proponent. The summer Strength and Conditioning program is a vital piece of the puzzle and the base building block to our success in the Fall. Injury prevention is our number one priority. Last summer we had more than double the numbers in the weight room as the previous 4-5 years and magically our injuries dropped.
If an athlete is serious about their training, they can expect to gain 6-10% in their overall strength through our summer program. Some younger athletes will even see greater gains. In order to maximize our athletes gains over the summer they must really pay attention to what they are eating. Here are a few guidelines to help maximize your results.
Summer Training Tips
The Wolverines took 2 squads over to Marist on Thursday June 2nd and played 7 on 7 and Run Game scheme vs. Marist and Harrisburg. The Wolverines showed that they were hungry for competition. All athletes showed great signs of improvement from last year and determination to get better for this next fall. Next up, the Wolverines Varsity 7 on 7 team will take on 15 other PIL and Metro League schools at Lakeridge HS this coming Sunday at 9 am.
Please remember to checkout the calendar periodically for changes and additions to our summer schedule.
Sign-ups for Team Camp are coming soon and will be posted here on the website.
