    Homecoming Parade Information for 2nd - 6th Grade Football Players:

    Our Varsity Homecoming Parade is this Friday, September 29th. Every Homecoming season there is a parade on the day of the Varsity football game that all the youth football players/teams are encouraged to participate in. We hope your son can participate and come have a great time!

    If your son wants to participate in the Homecoming parade with his youth football team, here are some logistics and things to think about: 

    • Teams are going to meet in the parking lot between Lincoln and Parker Elementary Schools at 4:00 sharp. I know kids are getting off the buses around 4:10/4:15. So, 4:00 doesn't seem doable, right? Well, staging is at 4:30 and motion is at 5:00...I say 4:00 to all of you to keep a tight ship, but if you can make it between 4:15 and 4:30, you'll be fine. 
    • After you drop your kid off at the parking lot, they will walk the parade with their team, coach, and parent volunteer...and the coach with your kid is instructed to wait with him for you at the Vandenberg parking lot to be picked up between 5:45 and 6:00. 

    Candy will NOT be provided by the ERYFA. Your coach or parent volunteer can provide candy, but kids are instructed to underhand lob the candy, and not overhand toss it.Your help in stressing that to your child will go a long way. 

    Looking forward to another great game and cheering on our Elks!

    GO ELKS!
