2016 Poulsbo Middle School
Spring/Summer Football Training
Head Coach Tony Ledesma 360-340-5069 tledesma@nkschools.org

Hello Parents and Athletes:
I would like to take this time and introduce myself, my name is Tony Ledesma and I am the Head Football Coach at Poulsbo Middle School. This is my sixth season with the Panthers Football Program. I have played football at the pee-wee, middle school, high school, college and semi-pro level. I have coached previously with North Kitsap Pee Wee association since 2005. Also on our staff is JV Head Coach/Offensive Coordinator James Smith who has been with the program for the last 9 years and Varsity Assistant Coach/Offensive Coordinator Dan Snelson who is in his 4th season, was with North Kitsap Pee Wee Association for 11 years. Assistant Coach/Defensive Coordinator Stu Beigler is in his 2nd season. We also have 3 assistant/volunteer coaches Todd Gowin, Melvin Borges and Alexander Currier with available spots for any parents, friends and football fans to provide their time and dedication to working with the Youth of North Kitsap community.
We will have an interest meeting Wednesday April 17th, and would like for all families looking to be a part of Panther Football for the 2016 fall season to attend. For the month of May we will host Open-Field Workouts, captain led and coach supervision for conditioning, exercises, skills, techniques and games. The first week of June we are having a spring mini football camp to introduce interested athletes to what it is like to be a part of Panther Football. This week is for ANYONE interested or thinking about playing football, no experience necessary. Although we do need registration paperwork turned in ASAP. Packets can be picked up at the PMS Main Office. There is no charge. Please bring something comfortable to exercise in and cleats if you have them, running shoes are fine there is no need to purchase any equipment at this time. We will workout after school Monday through Friday for the month of may and the first week of June.
I will be sending everyone home with a list of workouts and exercises that we will cover during the minicamp week and suggestions to do on their own at home throughout the summer. There will not be any organized workouts during the summer. If students want to get together to workout that is a great idea but our coaching staff will not be available to assist on location. We encourage captain led workouts and leadership from our young student/athletes. For any advice or recommendations feel free to contact me at any time via email or phone.
