Saints Support

The Washtenaw Saints are a Christian tackle football team serving the Washtenaw County area.  The Saints are characterized by the following:

  • Building Godly character
  • Encouraging healthy camaraderie
  • Turning boys into men

Here are the details for the upcoming 2020 season:

  • Team:  Washtenaw Saints; tackle football for 8th graders thru Seniors.
  • Framework:  The Saints have a Christian framework. As such, we encourage the cultivation of Godly character on and off the field.
  • Season:  We’re planning to play 8 games; 6 at the JV level & 2 at the varsity level; most games on Thurs nights, 1 on a Wednesday night, 2 on Saturdays; 1st game Thurs 8/27; last game 10/22 or 10/24.
  • Opponents:  Firm games so far include the Huron River Rats JV, Madision/Adrian Trojans JV, and Grand Rapids Patriots Varsity.
  • Home Field:  Our home field is Saline Middle School, Saline, MI (Crabtree Field).
  • Travel:  Our away games are all within 1 hour of our practice field except 1 in Grand Rapids.
  • Practices:  Begin 8/3/20 at Domino’s Farms, by US-23 and M-14, Mon/Tues/Thurs & some Fridays; 6pm start.
  • Ages:  8th grade thru seniors
  • Clarification:  There is a another Washtenaw Saints team, unrelated, at the middle school level.
  • Safety:  Due to our broad age range, we tend to limit game participation accordingly to ensure safety; against JV teams we limit the positions of our older players; against Varsity teams our youngest players are in learning mode with very limited playing time.
  • Cost:  $300 for earlybirds by 5/1/2020; $350 after that.
  • Fundraising Requirement:  We are getting new helmets this season; each player is required to invest 10 hours in fundraising events such as working a concessions stand at UM stadium, etc.
  • Family participation:  Each family needs to help out with the home games; jobs include ticket collection, concessions stand, chain gang, announcer, clock, etc.; players with special circumstances may request to be excused; bottom line: many hands make the burden light.
  • Head Coach:  Coach Kirk Parrish is returning for his 2nd year as head coach.  He will be joined by multiple assistant coaches.
  • To register: Go to www.cal-a.net (registration set to begin 3/15/2020).
