    General Information
    Practices on school days will run from 2:30pm-5:00pm, and there may be occasional Saturday practices or games, and the season usually ends around the 25th of October.  There are NO Sunday practices or games (WIAA rule). 
     
    Players MUST have all eligibility paperwork on file with the school office to be eligible to begin practicing.  All fees ($20 - ASB & $60 Activity Fee) MUST be paid by the time of the first game for a player to participate in game action. 
     
    Football players MUST participate in 12 practices before being permitted to play in a game.  Games are typically played on Wednesdays (either at 4pm or 6pm), with the exception of one game (occasionally two) of the season that is held on a Saturday. 
     
    Our teams each play a six-game schedule (maximum allowed by the state association, WIAA - www.wiaa.com).  We strive to have a balanced schedule of home and away games, but that does not always occur.  Some seasons may include a Jamboree prior to the first scheduled official game.  Please check the schedule.
     
    Most of our scheduled home games are played at LAKESIDE HIGH SCHOOL, but please look at your athlete's schedule or check here for revisions/updates.  Teams return from away-game sites at various times, so please look at your athlete"s schedule for an approximate return time, but those times can change.
