Scrimmage Opportunities - fields will be open on the Saturdays before the season begins for coaches to self schedule scrimmages using on on-line google doc sign up. There will not be referees. Coaches can sign up with another coach to reserve a field or sign up and wait for another coach to sign up to scrimmage them.
2016 Professional Training Staff - We will have Anthony Doherty from Challenger with us again this spring. Anthony was honored as the Challenger Mid-west Coach of the Year. Joining Anthony will be Kieron Norris. This will be his first season in Loveland. Anthony has been with us for over three years and knows many of our players. He's a great teacher. Hope you will get to know both Anthony and Kieron this spring.
