ECHS Football Family,
Our voluntary summer workouts are off to a great start with over 75 Tiger Football Players present. Our athletes have worked very hard this week and we are very proud of their efforts as we continue to improve. We will be back at it this Monday at 8:00am at ECHS as we enter week 2/4. Players as a reminder you need to be drinking plenty of water the day before your workouts as well as during them. Stay hydrated!
In closing, I read a great quote recently that said “Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter.” As you and I enjoy our summer let’s focus on the things that really matter. Let’s work hard and give our best effort not only at practice but also at home in our chores and responsibilities. Let’s live pure and guard against things that ought not go into our bodies, and guard against things that ought not come out of our mouths and use language of a gentleman. Let’s lead with courage despite what is popular or easy. Finally let’s honor our teammates by putting the team’s needs before our own and finish what we start. Tiger Football you can control only three things… your attitude, your effort, and your focus, so spend your focus, effort, and attitude this summer on the things that matter… People!
Play as One!

Q - Do I need to complete a waiver to attend summer workouts?
A - Yes. A Summer Conditioning Waiver Form can be digitally filled out at: https://bit.ly/ahcsrelease
Q - Do I have to attend Summer Conditioning?
A - Summer Conditioning is a voluntary OTA. We recommend that every player go through these 4 weeks to prepare their bodies for a football season.
Q - What if I have a family vacation planned or summer camp?
A - Although we did hand out our team calendar in January so that families could plan vacations and camps, we understand that sometimes there will be a summer conflict. Rule of thumb is, “If you are in town during summer conditioning be at the workouts. If you are out of town, have fun with your family and friends.” Just remember to wear sunblock! SPF 50!
Q - Where and when do the summer conditioning practices take place?
A - We start practice the first week at 6PM sharp at Escondido Charter High School
Q - What should I bring to the Summer Conditioning Workouts?
A - Cleats, black shorts, and your spring football t-shirt (Football Team will provide you a workout shirt). Also a water jug to stay hydrated and a healthy snack. On a side note it is really important that you drink a lot of water the day before your workouts and during workouts.
Q - What days of the week do we work out?
A - We run our summer conditioning program Monday - Thursday.
