The EFL Freshman Team Camp is a great way for rising freshman to start preparing for the fall season. We know that the transition of entering high school is a big one for our kids and even more demanding for football players with an earlier start. We feel this is a great way for young players to get acclimated with a higher level of training and to meet and develop bonds with their future teammates. It also provides an opportunity for the high school coaches to assess their rising freshmen against other local area high school players. Teams will need to provide helmets and shoulder pads for this camp.
* All league play will be held at Evergreen Sportsplex
The Evergreen High School 7v7 Passing League is broken down into two brackets. The first bracket, called “Black” will be comprised of each high school’s varsity “1”s. The second bracket is called “Green” and will be comprised of all other varsity and JV players. While there will only be one team from each school in the Black bracket, the Green bracket could have multiple teams from each school. Each high school coach will determine which team bracket his players will be assigned. Teams will only play within their own bracket.
The Freshmen Passing League is for rising 9th and 8th graders. The league is meant to provide players their first taste of high school football playing with their future high school teammates. The high school coaches will oversee these teams and begin to introduce their offensive and defensive schemes making the players transition to the high school program in the fall an easier one.
Paul Troth and Evergreen Football have partnered to offer an intensive six-week Quarterback Academy that will consist of WEEKLY on-field and classroom small group training. The classroom sessions will be a combination of grease-board and film-study work. The field training will be highly competitive and intense. It is designed to quicken your feet to make you a threat in the pocket.
We will also work to enhance your pocket presence by putting you through game-like scenarios. Not every throw is going to be from a clean pocket; you must be able to manage chaos in the pocket and still make the throws on time and accurately. Finally, we will clean up flaws in various drops and throwing mechanics. This attention to detail will ensure your feet and your throwing mechanics are on point every single time!
Evergreen Lions Football is pleased to announce that it has merged with the Dulles Patriots football program and together two former competitors will be rebranded as the Evergreen Hammers Youth Football Association. The merger of the Lions and Patriots unifies the two fall based youth travel football programs in Loudoun County. “I'm looking forward to this and I believe this consolidation will benefit the youth football players in Loudoun and bordering counties,” stated Jim Larson, founder of the Dulles Patriots.
The Evergreen Hammers program is designed to attract the best talent in the region. It is the club’s philosophy that training and competing against the best players when combined with quality coaching, will improve the player’s level of competitiveness. The Hammers’ teams will be based out of the Evergreen Sportsplex, with most of their practices and all their home games scheduled for the facility. “We are excited to bring together the best youth players, coaches, and facilities in Loudoun County to one club – a club that is designed to develop future community leaders while competing regionally and nationally,” commented Lions founder, Steve Levy.
One of the goals of the Evergreen Hammers is to develop a strong, cooperative relationship with the various county youth recreational leagues and the county’s high school coaches to raise the overall quality of play across all levels in the County. The first step was to create an Advisory Board comprised of four Loudoun County high school head football coaches. This group will mentor Hammers players on and off the field, bettering them in the class room and in the community. Mentoring and development will extend to the Hammers football coaches, as well. The initial Evergreen Hammers Advisory Board consists of Mickey Thompson (Stone Bridge), Reed Prosser (Heritage), Brian Day (Riverside) and Bobby Lalli (Rock Ridge).
Evergreen’s Managing Director, Chris Bourassa, is excited about the opportunity, “Football is a unique sport that lends itself toward the development of young men. Through these county wide unification initiatives we are positioned to put outstanding football players on the field as well as contributing members of society off the field.”
