Multi-sport Athletes
We encourage multi-sport athletes!  The expectation is that you are in the S&C program if you are not participating in another sport at the time. 

Why is strength & conditioning (weight training) so important?
Football is a very demanding sport. Although lifting and running in the off season will not guarantee you will not be injured during the season, research shows that the stronger you are the more your body can protect your joints, ligaments, etc. from injury. Also, you get to spend time together off the field with your teammates, encouraging each other to work hard towards a common goal. If your player cannot make the commitment needed to the conditioning program he may need to ask himself if he really wants to play football…..????

Spring Football, what is this?
Spring football is the training period after all state competitions for the various spring sports have finished. This training period allows the team to prep on the field for the summer camps (and the RHS Team Camp) they attend.  The Spring schedule will be listed on the website when we get closer to that time of year, typically at the end of March.

Summer Team Camp?  Where and When is it?
Gridiron Camp is held at Evergreen State College and it will be in late June just after school is out. June 28th - July 1st. Cost is $375  This is the single greatest team event!  At every post season banquet, players talk about the memories they made that will last a lifetime, and inevitably team camp always comes up as a top memory from their high school football career.

Insurance & Cost of Camp  
All Team Camps require every player attending to have medical insurance.  If needed, you can purchase insurance through the school. Cost of Team Camp is $375 per player.  Forms are available on our web page under the FORMS tab along the left side.

Spring Parent Meeting
In April, Coach Rimkus will host a parent information meeting at RHS. Please watch the website for the most important and current information about Redmond Football.

Player Gear - Spirit Packs
At the parent meeting in April, you will have the opportunity to order a team sweatshirt, t-shirt, shorts, etc.  (Parents can purchase gear in August from the merchandise stand and the RHS Boosters). This information and order forms will be available online in May.

Picture Day
TBD - Typically in August.  There will be NO make up day for individual pictures. 

Pay to Play Fee - Registering in the Fall
This fee is paid to Redmond High School ASB after August 20 and before the first game. If you have financial concerns in paying this fee, you should contact the athletic director at RHS, Dan Pudwill
