2020 Algonquin Football Information

Football does not have tryouts. Any students interested in football can join the team by coming to practice and bringing the necessary paperwork (Physical & COVID-19 Waiver) and equipment (Mask, Water). The first three days that a student comes to practice will be conditioning without any football equipment on. We will also provide players with all of the equipment they will need to play football besides cleats. If you have any other questions after reading the information below, please email Mr. Trombley (dtrombley02@cvs.k12.mi.us)


All Students and Parents interested in playing football this year should sign up for the Algonquin Football Remind101. Mr. Trombley and the coaches will send important updates (practice cancellations, schedule changes, etc.) through this group. To sign up text @algftbl20 to 81010. Or click the link below:


UPDATE 9/15/20


In order to participate, each student-athlete MUST have the following paperwork completed and turned in before the first practice. Practices are set to begin Thursday, September 17th at 3:15pm. Incomplete paperwork will result in your student-athlete being sent home. Student-Athletes and coaches will be required to wear a mask AT ALL TIMES. This includes arriving, departing and all practices/games. You must also provide enough of your own water/sports drink for the duration of practice. We are unable to provide water stations, so please prep accordingly.

You will need the following items to be eligible to practice: 

  1. Chippewa Valley Schools COVID-19 Liability Waiver. The waiver can be found here: https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/track?uri=urn:aaid:scds:US:8ef550ab-9cd7-4f16-990f-dddfb2ef8836
  2. A valid Physical on file with the middle school. There are TWO options listed below. Each document has TWO pages that need to be completely filled out and signed by both the student-athlete and a parent:
    1. You can get a new physical dated AFTER April 15th, 2020 and submit that.  This is the recommended option. Places like CVS Minute Clinic and Urgent Care facilities can take walk-in appointments so you can get a physical done today. The MHSAA Physical Form can be found here: https://www.mhsacom/portals/0/documents/health%20safety/physical2page.pdf 

    2. If you have a valid physical on file with the middle school from the 2019-2020 school year (completed between 4/15/19 – 4/14/20) and do not wish to get a new physical, you can fill out the MHSAA Health Questionnaire. It will be attached to your physical from last year and can be found here: https://www.mhsaa.com/portals/0/Documents/health%20safety/healthquestionnaire.pdf

In addition to the above documents, student-athletes are required to complete the following protocols EVERY DAY before they can enter practice.

1. Each athlete/coach or anyone present needs to fill out the Daily Monitoring Form every day before they arrive. Student athletes must bring a device that they can use to complete the daily monitoring form to every practice. The link to the form can be found here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdm1IoJ1T0_I21HObhZtXV1a_m7pK045MrFDHiale1kv9Y3Jg/viewform

2. Student-athletes will have their temperature taken before being allowed to enter practice. If a student’s temperature is above 100 degrees Fahrenheit it will be taken an additional 3 times. If their temperature is still above 100 degrees they will not be allowed into practice and will be asked to go home.

3. Student-athletes are expected to arrive ready to practice. Locker rooms will not be available for students to change into practice equipment/attire.

4. Student-athletes are expected to be able to get to practices every day at 3:15pm with their own transportation. As of now, bussing transportation will only be provided by the district for away contests. Football will have bus transportation to and from away contests. Volleyball will have bussing to away contests but parents will need to pick student-athletes up from the away schools after their game is complete.

5. Student-athletes are required to sanitize their hands before entering and after exiting practice.

6. Student-athletes ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK AT ALL TIMES during practice. From the time they arrive at practice and are waiting to be checked in until the time they are picked up from practice. During activity, masks can become damaged or saturated. It is highly recommended that students bring additional masks to practice in the event that their first mask becomes unusable.

After a student joins the football team or makes the cut to be on the volleyball team, there are additional steps that need to be completed.

1. Concussion Test- After making the team student-athletes need to complete their concussion testing if they have not done so while attending Algonquin Middle School. If a student took a concussion test last school year for a sport, they do not have to take it again. 7th grade students, and 8th grade students who have not taken a concussion test for a sport through Algonquin must complete a concussion test. PLEASE NOTE: Students must use a mouse to complete their concussion test. A laptop touchpad is not allowed for completing the concussion testing. Click the link below for instructions on how to complete concussion testing.



2. Online Paperwork- Student-athletes and parents need to go to FamilyID.com and go to the “Find a Program” section to search for Algonquin. This will bring you to a heading that says Chippewa Valley High School. Below that heading your will see “Algonquin Athletic Registration”. Click that to complete the paperwork for football/volleyball.

3. Payment- Student-athletes need to pay for participation in their sport through PaySchools Central. After the roster is finalized, a fee for the sport will be assigned to your child in PaySchools Central. Until then, you won't be able for the sport so please be patient. Mr. Trombley will send a message through Remind101 when the fee has been assigned to everyone. There is a link with directions on how to complete the payment once it is assigned on each of the Algonquin athletic pages. The cost is based on whether students qualify for free/reduced lunch.

No free/reduced lunch- $100

Reduced Lunch- $50

Free Lunch- $25

Below are protocols specific to games that need to be followed by all student-athletes and parents.

1. Student-athletes will be allowed to have 2 family members present at sporting events. This includes younger siblings or relatives. If 2 family members arrive with additional younger siblings they will not be allowed to enter.

2. Social distancing protocols and mask wearing must be followed while spectating contests with other schools.

3. Student-athletes and their family members are allowed to attend only the event in which the student athlete is participating. 8th grade student-athletes and family members are not allowed to spectate a 7th grade event and vice versa. After the completion of the 7th grade event, all 7th grade student-athletes and family members will be asked to leave the stands and playing area before 8th grade student-athletes and family members will be allowed to enter.

The seasons for both football and volleyball have been shortened due to the later start to the season. Football will have 4 games and volleyball will have 9. You will find the schedule for your sport below.
