Central Aroostook high school player registration night

The group will have its first meeting of the season on Tuesday, July 20, 2010, at 6:30 p.m. in the Weiden Gym on the UMPI campus.  This meeting serves multiple functions: an opportunity for parents to meet the coaches and ask questions, an opportunity to turn in your registration packet (it is now available online under the link “Registration Forms” on www.aroostookfootball.org), an opportunity for us to pass out the raffle tickets you will sell in order to earn your registration fee of $150.  Also, at this meeting, parents will have the opportunity to sign up for various Booster Club duties that we need them to perform in order to provide you the best possible experience.

Practices for the Central Aroostook Middle School Football Program will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday mornings in mid- to late-August at Northern Maine Community College in Presque Isle. The Central Aroostook Area High School Program will also follow a similar practice schedule with practices for high school football players being held at Sincock Field in Caribou.
