Buckaroo/Golden Eagle football players, we are preparing for the “first” season of football practices. There is quite a bit of information that needs to be addressed for us to have a successful start to this five week season. Practices will start on October 19th and for the first two weeks be held at the practice field above the Aquatic Center (Frosh Field). The last three weeks will be held at the Round Up Grounds. Players need to arrive at 3:15pm to begin the daily check in and temperature checks. Practices will start promptly at 3:40pm so it’s imperative that players arrive on time and are ready to go. Players need to fill out a COVID waiver and must have a current physical. You CANNOT practice if you are not cleared through PHS or Nixyaawii. If you have any questions about your registration, please contact Ryan Heinrich 541-429-7903. All players must bring their own water source, MASK, and cleats. No sharing of water will be allowed. There will not be an alternative water source on the field. Players and coaches are required to wear a mask at all times. 

Communication with players will be done through the Remind app. Parents are welcome to add this as well to stay updated on football information. To join the Buckaroo Football Remind you text to the number 81010 and in the message type @bucksf

There is also a Buckaroo Football Google Classroom. You can join this classroom by using the class code hcwkn34

If you have any questions you can contact Coach Davis at edavisatpendletonsd.org  or rheinrichatpendletonsd.org 

Mr. Heinrich will transport players to the first practice on Monday and will leave NCS promptly at 3:00pm.  Players need to arrange for their own transportation.
