Game schedules are finally "solid" now. As always, the times are subject to change. We have a couple of instances where teams within one color group are scheduled to play at different sites. This is a result of the mix of available teams from other programs, which is a condition outside of our control.
All times are subject to change. This is especially true for October 2nd; seven of our eight teams play at home that day, so we're double-checking with the league on the kickoff times. Stay tuned!
If your child missed the Cookie dough kickoff and they did not have a friend pick up an order form, please contact me or your coach or you can download the attached order form.
The items on the order form are not online so make sure you have the teams fill in the physical form, however there are other items online that can be ordered and will count towards your child’s total sales.
The specialty items under the “Team/Group Name” will have our Owls team name etched into them. See attachment “Slinger Owls.pdf”.
The Healing Patriots can be collected on the sheets and online and go to a very worthy cause!! Every $20 donated here also counts for prizes for the seller!!
The kids should bring their completed order forms back to the pavilion before practice on Tuesday, September 7th. Ensure that the order forms and all money are in the envelope for drop-off.
We will then send out an email as to when and how pickup will take place.
We would love to have 100% participation so please encourage you kids to safely talk to neighbors, friends, and family!
Slinger Gridiron is once again proud to sponsor the Jose A. Rivera, III Memorial Scholarship. Jose was a beloved member of our Gridiron family until he passed away prior to his freshman year due to cancer. We awarded our first scholarship to his graduating class last year; it was a special time for us all.
This scholarship award is $1,054 (Jose wore #54), and it's open to all SHS seniors who have played at least four years of tackle football from Grades 5-12. Applicants must plan to pursue postsecondary education of any kind (professional certification, trade apprenticeship, associate's or bachelor's programs, etc.) OR - new this year - enter service in the armed forces in the next year. A completed application and three recommendations (one each from a teacher/administrator, a current/former football coach and one other adult - not family) are all that's required for consideration.
Qualifying students in this year's Senior Class may apply online using the following Google forms (information also available in the SHS Guidance Office):

We're now up to at least three different fake websites that represent themselves as links to our local varsity high school football broadcasts. These sites all ask for your credit card number and other personal information in an attempt to defraud you and potentially steal your identity. They do a good job of using graphics, photos, banners and exciting words to deceive people into thinking they're legitimate.
The ONLY two places to be fully confident that you're getting the correct links to the game are the SHS Athletics Page (https://www.slinger.k12.wi.us/schools/high/athletics/) and our Slinger Gridiron Homepage (https://www.slingergridiron.com). That's it. All of us - including this Facebook page - should only share links to one or both of these pages, where fans can then navigate to find the broadcast links within those sites. Links originating from Facebook or any other source CANNOT BE TRUSTED.

The emphasis of this program is to instruct all members of the youth teams in the proper techniques of football and sportsmanship. Teamwork, commitment, and fair play is required, at all times, from all Directors, Coaches, and Players. Slinger Gridiron strives to provide a program which is a positive experience for all members. The character built from participation in the organization shall always be the primary goal. Learn more about the organization here.
It's with mixed emotions that I'm announcing my resignation from Slinger Gridiron. I'm excited to enter the next phase of service to Slinger, but I'm sad to leave something I love so much.
Please watch this video and read the attached letter for more detail. Thank you for allowing me to serve you and your family.
