WELCOME TO THE AUBURN PANTHERS 2018 SEASON!​​​​​​​

  • First day of practice for football and cheer is Monday, July 16th @ 6 pm!
  • July practices will be held at Brannan Park - SOCCER FIELD (grass field next to skate park on the North side of Brannan).
  • Starting AUGUST 1st, we move over to our normal location at Brannan Park (across from Cascade).
  • Please have your child to practice 10-15 minutes early so practice can start on time. Practice ends at 8 pm. Please make arrangements to have your child picked up at that time so our coaches and staff can leave the field. Practices will be Monday through Thursday 6-8 pm until school starts then they will be Tuesday through Thursday after school starts.
  • Players need 4 days of conditioning practice before they are allowed contact. For those first 4 days, players should wear shorts, T-shirt, cleats.
  • Have your child bring a water bottle for water breaks. Please be careful what you give your child to replenish their fluids. Water is best. If they prefer Gatorade/Powerade, it is best to mix it ½ and ½ with water to cut down on the salt intake. DO NOT fill it with soda, milk, juice or Kool Aid/Lemonade. All of these can make your child sick.
  • Eat before practice. Your child should be done eating by 4:45 pm. This allows the food to settle and will prevent them from cramping, both stomach and legs. They can eat another light snack when they get home from practice.
  • Your Head Coach will have a team meeting with parents shortly after practice begins. Please make arrangements to be there. Important information about the season will be passed along at that meeting. It will also give you an opportunity to ask the coach any questions you may have. At the meeting, you can expect to receive a coach’s contact list. Your team parent will also be asking for volunteers to help. This will range from help in the concession stand to help on game day working chains or announcing games. Please be gracious with your time.
  • Your Executive Board members will be walking around to meet and greet you. Get to know them and feel free to express to them any questions or concerns you have.
  • EQUIPMENT HANDOUT will be on SATURDAY JULY 21st from 9am to 1pm.   WELCOME BACK BBQ TO FOLLOW! 
  • Practices the following week after equipment handout, players will need to be in full pads/practice gear to include helmet and mouthpiece.
  • ** IMPORTANT **  We need to ensure we have your current email address on file for news/updates/field or game changes/weather related, etc.
