Hickman High School is offering a zero hour strength training class next year. I encourage all football players to take advantage of this opportunity.
If your son takes zero hour strength training he will have a study hall in one of his 8 blocks. This is because students are only allowed to earn a maximum of 8 credits per year, so the study hall balances out the extra hour they are in class before school.
As the head football coach I can tell you that our team performs best when our student athletes take the opportunity to train during the day. This offering is in direct response to student need here at Hickman High School--I applaud both the Physical Education Department and the Hickman High School Administration for responding to our need.
Incoming freshman are allowed to take this course--just contact me if you have an interest so I can officially authorize your son’s choice.
Again this is a fabulous opportunity for our student athletes and I encourage them to take advantage of it.
Finally, please remember the necessary MSHSAA eligibility requirements:
Freshman and Sophomores must be enrolled in and pass 6 of 8 classes.
Juniors and Seniors must be enrolled in and pass 7 of 8 classes.
