JHL CONDITIONING SCHEDULE - FOOTBALL RESTART

JHL Families

First off thank you for everyone's patience as we work through the logistics getting a season up and running in a matter of days. Luckily, we have a solid board that has been very supportive throughout all of this.

As of now we will start conditioning, again, on Tuesday, Sept. 1st and Wednesday, Sept. 2nd from 6-8:15pm.  If you can get there a little early each practice so we can take the boys’ temperatures. We are also asking for a parent to walk their child to the field on Tuesday so that a waiver can be signed.  THE FIRST WEEK WILL BE SHORTS AND CLEATS ONLY.  MASKS ARE REQUIRED AS WELL for entrance to and from the field.

We will hand out equipment on Tuesday as well. We will be taking all necessary precautions to make sure it is done safely. 

In years past JHL has provided a two-piece girdle with pads and an outer pant for the uniform bottom. Based on a lot of feedback we have received we are going to go with a basic black pant that each player will purchase on their own. Nike, Under Armor, Wilson, Schutt, Champion...it doesn't matter what brand you choose as long as they are black. If anyone has any questions, please let us know. A link to an example of what we are talking about is here:

If anyone is still unsure if they are going to play this year and has any questions, please connect with us so we can talk. If anyone is considering playing for JHL please let a board member know as we will cap registration so that we can maintain the level of playing time we expect at the JHL level.

Please be on the lookout in email, the website and FB for any updates.

Go Dogs!!

JHL Football Update - 8/29/2020

JHL Football families

Bedford High School has reversed its decision to forego football and will be playing in the 2020 season.  The JHL board met after Bedford High School announced their decision. And after much discussion about the pros/cons of playing vs. not playing, as well as the risks involved, the JHL board has voted to play football this year.

As you know, it is our goal to follow NHIAA and Bedford High School Football’s lead, as we have done since JHL’s inception. Therefore, we will be following the same safety protocols that BHS football has put into place. The one exception is that we will not be requiring our players to conform to 100% remote schooling. The safety protocols we will be mirroring are:

  • Each player will arrive at the field in clothing that has been laundered.
  • Social distancing will be maintained on the sidelines.
  • Masks will be worn while playing. JHL is purchasing masks that attach to the helmets for players to wear.
  • Temps taken before practice and walk through on game days
  • Outside responsibly

The JHL board also understands that each family needs to make the decision that has their family’s best interests in mind.  We understand the difficulty in this decision and will respect whatever decision you make. If your family chooses to not play this season please remember, once a Bulldog, always a Bulldog and we will welcome you back with open arms when you decide to come back. Anyone opting not to play will be given a full refund.

Please know this was a decision that the board members took very seriously. We are confident that we have in place a very well thought out plan to keep our players – your children safe.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to any board member and we’ll be happy to talk.

We will be sending schedule information shortly as we must act fast. Stand by for that.

Thanks so much. Go Bulldogs!!
