The football season starts August 12 for all East High School football players (Varsity, Junior Varsity, & C-Team). All players who would like to participate during the 2024 season must attend practice on the August 12 tryout date, unless they have extenuating circumstances that have been pre-approved by the head football coach.

Those wishing to participate must complete the required documents prior to August 12. Here is a summary of important deadlines that was distributed at our Family Informational Meeting in May. Activities-related documents can be found toward the bottom of this page (East Activities Forms)
