Practice & Game Information:

The normal season begins with practices starting in mid to late July. The Panthers will usually practice up to 5 days a week during the initial portion of practices that do not overlap with the beginning of the school year. After school starts, practices are held at the Larry Sanders Sports Complex @ 5855 S 78th Street every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.

Games are held on Saturdays and usually run from mid-August until late October. Teams advancing into the playoffs can sometimes play until late November.

Game-day Information:

  • All players need to arrive at the games at least an 1 hour and 15 minutes prior to kickoff. The reason for this is weigh-in starts 1 hour prior to game time and players must weigh in and have their picture verified before they are allowed to play.
  • You must submit a parks and recreation release form and have turned in your child’s birth certificate. If not, your child will not be able to play.
  • Hydration will be provided during the games.
  • Hillsborough County require that all coaches, cheerleading coordinators, team moms and anyone else on the field must be complete a training course and carry a certification card. Information on the course can be found on this website.
