Frosh Football: 2021 Info!

Hello Future Hillmen Football Parents and Players,

I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe during these challenging times. Despite there being a lot of questions about this up and coming season, we want to let you know we are confident that we will get a “normal” season in the fall. First, let me say that your child’s health and safety is our number one concern and we will be vigilant as always to accomplish this. 

Traditionally we would meet with your child during the spring at their school to get out the information about the summer schedule and then would start practice the week after they get out of school on June 7th. During the summer practice the frosh staff implements the base offense and defense, the basic fundamentals and our conditioning program . While we cannot get out to each of our feeder schools to promote this, we still WILL START June 7th for Summer Camp. 

We are so excited to work with your son/daughter at Placer and their time here will be a life changing experience. If your child is interested in playing football this fall please email our Frosh Head Coach Jim Packheiser at jimpackheiser@yahoo.com 

Thank you and Go Hillmen!!

Joey Montoya
Head Football Coach

Dates to plan for:

-June 7-July 1: Summer practice. M-Thursday 3-5:30. The form below will need to be filled out and turned in on the first day we start. 

-July 26th the official start of the season 3pm in the stadium (ending around 5:45)

Important note: your child will need to be cleared online through our school by the start of the 27th. This includes getting a physical, filling out the information and also the donation. You can accomplish this here: on Placer’s main athletic page online.

Spring 2021 Schedule!

After almost a year of uncertainty we are cleared to play! We are looking forward to probably the most special and important Hillman football schedule in all of Placer’s incredible history! We are so grateful for the coaches and the players who have kept up with the conditioning and practice protocols that were allowed this past year to stay ready and prepared, and now that the COVID numbers are decreasing and we are cleared to play, we couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to once again hit hard and have fun and play Hillman football!

Here’s our Spring 2021 schedule!

Summer Ball Begins June 22!

The 2020 Placer Hillmen football season is beginning!!!  

Varsity and JV will start summer ball Monday June 22 and the Frosh will start the 29th. Varsity will practice from 9-12 and JV from 2-5 Monday through Thursday. Unlike the original schedule, instead of ending on the 2nd of July we will end Thursday July 16th and will be off until the July 27th. 

Protocols outlined by Placer Union High School District and Placer County, such as daily temperature checks will be followed. Team moms will email out to the Hillmen Football families how it will work. If you haven’t heard from your team mom, email us at hillmenfootballboosters@gmail.com and we’ll make sure you’re on the email list.

Players will need to go online and get cleared like they do for the season. Go to this Placer Athletics Website to find the Athletics Registration link (where they go to get cleared) and the link for the Physical Form. THEY DO NOT NEED TO HAVE A PHYSICAL done for summer (22/29) but will need to have it done by the official start of the 27th of July (we highly recommend they get it done ASAP). 

As we get more information on the schedule, etc., we will share it here and on the Hillmen Football Facebook and Twitter pages.

Go Hillmen!
