Kang Football News for April 2020

Kang Football Families:

Our apologies for being off the grid for a while - most of us have been dealing with issues that the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic has dealt all of us at work and at home - mainly safekeeping our own families during these challenging times.

Uncertainty is the key word these days, and no doubt you have plenty of that in your lives.  To help remove some of that uncertainty as it relates to high school football, we will begin a weekly email from the Gridiron Board sharing all that we know.  Today, we hope to answer some of your more immediate questions:

  • When will Football activities begin? 

The earliest date to begin organized football related activity is June 22nd.  However, like all COVID-19 schedules, this date is subject to change.  All decisions regarding the start of the 2020 football season, including summer activities, will be based on the latest information from the Governor, the WIAA, and the Lake Washington School District.  Athletic Director Rick O'Leary and Coach Arena will be able to provide more information when it is available.    

  • Should we be registering for GRIT Camp?

Given the opportunity, we will move forward with a football camp this summer.  Until we have more information as the COVID-19 situation progresses, we really can’t say what form that camp will come in.  We are hoping that going to Warm Beach will happen as planned, but we need more time and more direction.  There is no need to register for camp today, and we will keep parents informed of the current status.   

  • What can we be doing in Preparation for Football?

Coach Arena has been communicating with players via Hudl and Sports Engine.  Players should have these apps downloaded in order to receive communications and a schedule for optional quarantine workouts through the Rack Performance App.  Physical fitness and time on Hudl w/ video and the play books are the best activities for today.  Remember that players who stay in shape are less prone to injury during the season.   

  • What can I do to help?

During this time of many challenges we would encourage you to support the Kirkland Community and many past Kang Football sponsors.  With most business shut down, consider supporting one of the many restaurants that have been Kang Football Supporters in the past.  Whether that’s getting food to go, buying gift cards, or just sending your support, here are some of those businesses that could use your help.
