Some upcoming events for Wolverine Nation!
The Varsity Willamette Football team will have their team banquet to honor the 2016 Season on December 4th, at 5pm, here on the school campus. Please save the date, with additional details to come.
On a Bethel community note, our 7th/8th grade teams are battling in a championship game here at Wolverine Stadium on Sunday, November 13th, 1pm. Following that game, our 5th/6th graders also are involved in a championship game. Let’s pack the stadium and support the future of Wolverine Football!
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. email@example.com
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.
