Dear Tahoma Football Families,
               Due to the current stay at home order and phased approach to returning to life, this summer’s TEAM CAMP has been canceled. I am sure this doesn’t come as a surprise to most but want to keep you informed as promised. The Coaching staff is still waiting for guidance from the Governor, OSPI, WIAA and of course Tahoma SD on when our players can return to the field and what it will look like. I do promise to let you know as soon as I am informed of any further updates and when the parent meeting is rescheduled. In the meantime keep encouraging your player to stay connected to his teammates the best they can at this time and keep doing those at home workouts. 
Go Bears,
Daedre Perez
MVTB President

New "at home Volt training"
features you should know about!

Tahoma Football Families,
We have decided to use our current weight room platform, VOLT, for our off season training. VOLT has added a couple options for at home workouts. There are option for No Equipment and Some Equipment workouts. All players have been added to the "No Equipment" workout and can start today. If you have some equipment (dumbbells) at home send me a email at toddleick@gmail.com and I will move you to the equipment workout. If you are new to Tahoma Football and do not have a VOLT account please send an email to toddleick@gmail.com with your players first and last name and email address.  Stay Safe and Healthy.
Thanks - Coach Leick

Thank you so much for this generous offer to our families Kurt!

Bear families,

I hope this message finds your family safe and healthy. We’re in an incredible time, unlike any other I’ve seen in nearly 30 years in education.
One of the activities we’ve chosen to participate in is the Character Challenge. The “challenge” is a weekly character based competition between football teams at the following schools: Auburn Mountainview, Ballard, Bellevue, Bonney Lake, Bothell, Kentridge, Lakewood, Liberty, Lincoln, Newport, O’Dea, Pasco, Selah, Tahoma, and Woodinville.
The competition includes simple weekly challenges, and is designed to keep the players connected in these difficult days. The week 1 challenge was to simply have the players make their bed each morning. Ideally the kids will post a picture on social media #wafbcharacterchallenge. The team has been divided into seven squads with each led by two seniors. Every week we will total the number of kids who completed the challenge, how many days they did it, and rank the teams each week. The school that “wins the week,” will be rewarded for their success and we have a sponsor who will provide prizes for the team that wins the overall competition.
Parents, here’s how you can help. If you have a current freshman or sophomore they should have been contacted by their group leader and given an explanation of the competition – the seniors also chose to add a pushup competition to their plan (competition just between the Tahoma squads). If your player hasn’t been contacted, email Coach Davis ( tdavis@tahomasd.us ) so we can see which squad he’s a member of and make sure the seniors leading his group have the correct contact information (text number).
Feel free to email me if you have questions. I appreciate your support on this as we try to keep the players connected in these uncertain times.
