Considering 8-Man Football Program

posted Dec 20, 2019, 9:05 AM by Floyd Wygant

Waterville Senior High School will be conducting a meeting to discuss the potential of Waterville participating in 8-man football starting in the fall of 2020.  With continued low participation numbers, lack of sub-varsity competitive opportunities, and safety concerns, the school is in support of competing in 8-man football to ensure a positive experience for our student-athletes as well as ensuring we can continue to sustain a high school football program.

Coaches, players, and parents from current 8-man football schools of Mt. Ararat and Maranacook have been invited to attend this meeting to share their experiences in this past year's inaugural 8-man season in the State of Maine.

This meeting is scheduled for Monday, January 6th at 630pm at the Waterville Senior High School Media Center and is open to all interested in attending.
