If you have a student at ERHS in the fall, just a reminder that Coach Fritze has a mandatory player & parent meeting on Sunday, April 24 @6pm in the Loft Stage at ERHS. If you have a middle schooler, and are interested in learning more about the high school program, Coach has extended the invite to you as well.

Raptor Youth Summer Camp - July 18,19, 20 - $40

We invite children entering grades 3-8 in the fall to join East Ridge High School Varsity Football team, led by Coach Fritze, in a fun camp that will build positive connections between our youth and high school players.  2022 Youth Football Camp will offer ERAA youth players an opportunity to watch the end of the high school practice, and then learn specific football skills from varsity players and coaches. Registration Opens April 4. More details here.

(p.s. Equipment pick up for Tackle & TackleBar players will follow camp like last year.)
