JM Football Program Notes

Athletes are reminded to listen carefully at each team time for scheduled changes. Keep an eye on the web calendars as schedules can change quickly.

All schedules are tentative and can quickly change based on weather and other conflicts. Always bring t-shirt, shorts and gym shoes in case we have to move inside.

Rocket Gear is to be worn at all team times - shirt & shorts in Rocket colors: red, black, white or grey that are either plain or have a JM Football or other JM logo. Cleats should be black and long sleeve shirts must be black.

Email or text with ALL absences.  The respective head coach will then be notified.

If a student-athlete is not going to take the school transportation a Travel Release Form must be completed 48 hours prior to departure. The completed form must be turned into the JM Activities Office and cannot be given to the coach at the event.

We have many opportunities for Rocket Fans & Family to volunteer or donate to the JM Football program.  Please check out the many opportunities at  Thank you for your continued support!
