Why is weight training so important and what does it cost?
Football is a very demanding sport. Although lifting and running in the off season will not guarantee you will not be injured during the season, research shows the stronger you are, the more your body can protect your joints, ligaments, etc. from injury. More importantly your player gets to spend time with their teammates, encouraging each other to work hard for a common goal.
Cost: $100 per player for the protein program paid to Booster Club
Spring Parent Meeting
In Early May Coach Bainter will host a parent information meeting at BHS. Please watch this website for the most important and current information about Bothell Football.
Spring Football, what is this?
WIAA allows a limited number of days teams can use after all spring sports state competitions have finished until August 1st. This training period allows the team time to prep on the field for the summer team camps may they attend, participate in 7 on 7 tournaments, etc.
Player Gear - Spirit Packs
Online orders will be placed following the May parent meeting to order a team sweatshirt, t-shirt, shorts, etc. This will be a onetime order and this gear is intended for players and coaches only. (Parents can purchase gear when the season begins from our merchandise stand). This information and order forms will be available online in mid-May and close early June.
NSD uses Final Forms, an online eligibility enrollment program. All players must be "green" before they can participate. If you need help getting into Final Forms, please contact Athletic Director Yonni Mills, she will be able to assist you.

Summer Team Camp? Where and When is it?
The team will attend a summer camp in late June. Full camp details will be shared shortly. Our hope is that all players will attend camp, but it is not required to participate in the 2023 football season. Cost will be finalized closer to camp but it typically runs $325-$350 per player to attend.
First Day of 2023 Season: Wednesday, August 16
Saturday, August 20 will be team picture day. The morning pictures will be followed by practice. There will be no makeup day for individual pictures.
Pay to Play Fee
This fee is paid to Bothell High School ASB after August 16 and before the first game. If you have financial concerns in paying this fee, please contact Athletic Director Yonni Mills. Cost should never be a blocker for any student who wants to play. Additionally, Northshore School District requires all players to purchase an ASB card ($35).
We do some pretty special things for players while at Bothell HS. There are many traditions that have been maintained throughout the time Coach Bainter has been the Head Coach. It takes a village of volunteers to make these things happen from off-season items to in season activities. We hope that each family will find the time to invest in the program the same way your player does.
We will be signing up family volunteers early this year, so watch for your chance to be part of the support structure and tradition that the CFC provides.
