PV Sharks Football Updates - Happy Father's Day!

Posted by PVHS Football on Jun 21 2020 at 09:24AM PDT in 2020

Happy Father’s Day!

A message from Coach DiSandro:
We had a good first week of camp. The coaches were pleased with the player’s efforts all week. The Covid-19 procedures proved to be very effective. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to myself Coach DiSandro or our Athletic Trainer Sophia at any point. Sophia can also answer any Covid-19 related questions.

As a reminder, players must bring their own water to camp. Hydration is something that must happen consistently throughout the weekdays and on the weekends. Also, players must eat before they come to workouts. Working out on an empty stomach in the heat is not good and can cause a variety of physical issues.

No Vacation Days from Summer Training Camp
We’ve had a few questions about taking the 4th of July week off, since in the past we’ve always taken that week off during the summer, however with the late camp start we won’t break. Of course if you had planned vacations take them however your player should notify Coach DiSandro on dates they will be absent.

From here on out, if you have questions regarding Summer Training Camp or the Youth Football Camp, please reach out to Coach DiSandro directly by email or phone.

For questions on the Fall Football Program or General Booster questions, please reach out to Mike Resetar. Of course you can always reach out to Communications and I’ll point you in the right direction.

Player Store
As a reminder, the Player Store will close THIS WEEK on June 24th at midnight! This is a chance for you to purchase gear for your player. Please note, you do not need to purchase anything from this store. You are free to get the “Player Needs” any place you so choose, and many players already have items on the list. We do like to provide a way for you to get these items if you so choose, and many of the players enjoy getting some PV Sharks Football gear! All orders are processed once the store closes and will take 3 weeks to be completed. ALL SALES ARE FINAL! NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES ON DECORATED ITEMS! We will also be opening up the online store for PV Sharks Apparel soon! Shorts, shirts, hats, etc…lots of great PV Sharks Football gear for everyone to support our Sharks or wear as an official PV Sharks Football Player! Stay tuned for this!

Sharks Head Coach Jeff DiSandro In his first season at Ponte Vedra, the 2019 Shark Football team was District Champions and 6A playoff qualifiers. Coach DiSandro has 15 years of coaching experience with 10 years in college and 5 years in high school. He has coached every position on the field (offense, defense and special teams) and he enjoys working with young athletes as well as building team culture and investing in his community. Ponte Vedra Football has multiple consecutive playoff appearances and a 2016 state championship game appearance.

Your son will experience next level football drills and techniques, daily same-age games, The Shark Walk into the Stadium, and much more! Every camper will participate in drills as a Quarterback, Running Back, Wide Receiver, Offensive & Defensive Lineman, Linebacker, and Defensive Back. Each position is paired with PV Sharks Football coaches and players. Your son will participate in the same drills as the high school players do, while putting safety first. Our campers will take water breaks after every station and never spend more than (1) hour in the sun.
