Fall Football

Our Fall Football program this year is open for all athletes ages 5-12.  We will again be providing a fully sublimated custom uniform and fully integrated game pants for all players.  Players will be notified on dates, times, and location for fitting opportunities’.  All players must be paid and registered by July 4, 2016 to ensure jersey delivery. 


Cost for this season will be $165.


We welcome players of all skill levels to join us for a great football season.


ELMS/ELO – This registration is open to rising 6th, 7th, & 8th grade students at ELMS.  All age eligible rising 7th & 8th grade ELO players will be required to be on this team.  Rising ELMS 6th graders have the opportunity to choose between the Mustang & Falcon team.  I recommend all rising 6th graders to talk with Coach Steve Huffman or Coach Patrick Mizzell for more information.


Off Season Athletic Conditioning

This year we have partnered with CrossFit Allegiance in Denver to help with our offseason conditioning program.  This program IS NOT only for football players but for all athletes interested in improving strength, flexibility, speed, and conditioning.  Athletes will have the opportunity to participate in 13 sessions at CrossFit Allegiance beginning in June through the last week of July.  Class dates and times will be set once interest can be gauged.  Registration is open for athletes 5-13.


Cost for this program is $105.


Summer Football Players Camp

We will again have our Summer/Preseason Summer Camp.  Camp will be Monday July 25th through Thursday July 28th.  Camp is open for players registered for those fall season and for those who simply want to just “check it out.”  We will go through our ELO fundamentals and learn the game of football.  Camp is open for athletes 5-13.


Cost for the camp is $25.


ELMS Summer Camp – Camp is open to rising 7th & 8th graders who have shown an interest in playing at ELMS.
