Inside the 20

In this edition of Inside the 20, I want to update you all on the playoff schedule, future of Koa Flag Football, and of course the players with our weekly highlight video.

Schedule:

The schedule gets a little wacky over the next few weeks and I wanted to give everyone a breakdown of what it will be (remember there are no games Easter weekend).

Saturday League:

Week 5 – April 27th          Week 6 – May 4th          Playoffs – May 11th

Sunday League:

Week 6 – April 28th

Playoffs (K-1, 2/3rd Grade, 4/5th Grades bottom four seeds, 6th Grade, & 7/8th Grade) – May 5th

Playoffs (4/5th Grade, High School) – May 12th

*Times and locations are TBD


We have some big and exciting changes coming to Koa Football in the Summer and Fall that certainly make the future of Koa Football bright. 

Summer

For the first time, there will be 3 Koa Football Summer Camps to choose from. Our signature Germantown and Bethesda Flag Football Camp are returning. The Football Skills Camp is our latest addition, hosted by Coach Brandon Driver, and will be a completely different experience to assist those footballers that want to play tackle in middle school or high school.

Germantown – July 29 – Aug 2

Bethesda – Session 1 (Aug 12 – 16) & Session 2 (Aug 19 – 23)

Football Skills Camp – June 25 – 27


Fall Season

Tackle Football

I am also very excited to announce that Koa will have its first ever tackle football team coming this Fall. This has been something I have wanted to do for a long time and with the help of our great coaching staff, it is happening. More information will be coming out soon but tryouts will be some time at the beginning of June.

Flag Football

I know for a long time parents and kids have requested some form of weekly practices. I must say it is hard with my coaches schedule but I decided to add a 6-week long clinic beginning Sept. 24th. The clinics will focus on the fundamentals and more importantly, work with your coach prior to the season.

In the Fall season, we will be revising some rules but the biggest change to the season is the gameday experience. That means making the day fun before practice and after the game. So I want to bring outside elements to gamedays meaning cornhole, ice cream truck, 3-point contest, QB throwing nets and much more.

Fall registration is NOW OPEN. Click HERE to register.

Inside the 20

Another great weekend of Koa Flag Football is in the books. The games, weather, and the atmosphere were all outstanding. I want to thank everyone for coming out and supporting their teams. Also, Koa Fall Flag Football registration is now OPEN

 

Schedule

The Schedule for this weekend is set for now. With rain looking like a high possibility on Friday night and Sunday, games might be affected. Remember there are no games next weekend (Easter Weekend). 

 

Week 4 Highlights 

Check out Week 4’s highlight video featuring some big time interceptions, long runs, and one-handed grabs.

 

Coach of the Month

Coach Antony is March’s Coach of the Month for March! After a couple of years of re-building, Coach Antony coached his boys back into the 5th Grade Championship in this past winter’s Rising Star League! After Coach Ant’s 5th East team started the first half of the season at 3-3, they went on to win six games in a row, and ultimately, a championship! The 5th East handled the Olney Warriors in the final game and won by 20 points! The win was a long time coming since Coach Ant’s last title when the boys were in 3rd Grade. Keep up the great work Coach and good luck in the spring season!

 

If anyone has any questions about Week 4, please feel free to reach out to me at nickt@koasports.org.

See you this weekend.

March 2019 Newsletter!

Koa Families,

An exciting opening weekend for Koa Baseball and Field Hockey!  On Saturday it felt like spring with sunshine and 70 degree weather then took a turn back to winter on Sunday.  Despite the chilly Sunday, we were thrilled to have our athletes compete in all scheduled games this weekend; we dislike rainouts as much as you!

Like the NCAA tournament and March Madness, March flew by for the Koa staff.  We were busy prepping for spring by handing out jerseys, obtaining field permits, writing schedules, training coaches, running parent meetings, and playing our first game(s).  Here’s what all of our sports have been up to, as well as a great article written by our partner at Power Train which talks about working out IN SEASON.  This is mostly for our older athletes, but is applicable to other many aspects of life.


Thank you to all for voting Koa Sports Best of Bethesda 2019!

Coach Antony

Coach Antony is March’s Coach of the Month for March! After a couple of years of re-building, Coach Antony coached his boys back into the 5th Grade Championship in this past winter’s Rising Star League!

Keep up the great work Coach and good luck in the spring season!

 

Player of the Month

 

Max G.

Max G. is by far one of the favorites among the Koa Flag Football staff. When assigning coaches to teams, many coaches jump at the chance to coach and play with Max. As one of the most charismatic and funny players on the field, he lifts everyone else around them. Don’t let his jokes fool you though, Max works his tail off and can handle himself when playing with the older kids. Max has helped the Ducks off to a great 2-1 start this season.
