Does your tackle football player have a state ID?

Remember, SMYAC has implemented a government-issued ID for all tackle football players.  Additional information can be found by clicking here.

Equipment area with very limited supplies will be available before practice only.  We will attempt to accommodate as many equipment issues onsite, however additional efforts and interactions will likely require further arrangements at the HPP shed.  Please ensure taking care of any known equipment items prior to practice days.  Email Anthony Oquendo at   with questions, comments, concerns.


Critical Health and Safety Information

Keeping our flag, tackle, and cheer athletes safe is our top priority.  With this mindset along with the anticipated hot weather, we are immediately enacting preemptive measures for player safety to include no pads for tackle players first 2 days (tackle football participants will be receiving another email with additional details.)  Additional measures may be enacted to include last minute cancelation of practices.  Please keep your eyes open for potentially last minute changes from the organization and your specific sport.  Such measures will be communicated via Eagles Facebook page ( and emails.


We need your help!! How can you help …

Starting the day before practice, the young athlete should start hydrating by drinking plenty of water.  Water is preferable, but if the athlete is resisting, use their favorite sports drink. Important: if they are thirsty, they are already dehydrated.  After practice, sports drinks are preferable because they replenish electrolytes. Rehydration after practice is extremely important. It’s up to the parents to ensure their athletes begin the rehydration process immediately after practice.

During the first weeks of practice, coaches are still learning several player’s behaviors and may not be able to identify a change as quickly as you.  If you identify a potential medical concern, please notify coaches/org contacts within your area.

Please nourish athletes before and after practice.  Avoid dairy products, i.e. milk, prior to start of practice.  The night before and 2 hours before exercise: focus on carbs, moderate protein, low-fat foods and fluids.
