Venice High football team hosting parents meeting
For those parents whose children are interested in playing football for Venice High, there will be a parents’ meeting held at the TeePee on Feb. 13 at 6 p.m.
The Indians coaching staff will lay out the basics of the upcoming spring and fall seasons, and any current Venice student with a physical on file with the school is eligible.
New this year, current 8th graders who intend to play football at Venice next season are also invited to attend the meeting with parents.
If interested, eligible 8th graders will be permitted to join the team for spring practices — allowing future Indians to get acclimated to the team before the season arrives.
