2015 NVHAA Centurions Varsity Football Team
NVHAA is a legitimate high school varsity and junior varsity sports assocation established primarily for homeschooled young men and women ages 13-18 who do not otherwise have the opportunity to play competitive high school sports. NVHAA is a legal 501c3 non-profit, Christian-led organization. Students who attend a private or alternative high school that does not have a comparable sports program can be considered for participation on NVHAA sports teams. The Centurions are members of the Eastern Christian Conference and the teams provide full programs for the younger and older high school players, as well as the inexperienced and experienced.
The Centurions hope to encourage families to continue homeschooling throughout the high school years and desire that EVERY eligible homeschooled athlete have a place and chance to play competitive high school sports in a clean environment under caring coaches. Each young player is expected to develop leadership skills, sports capability, and a competitive spirit, without forsaking the teachings of his parents in order to be successful. We are not ashamed of Christ, and we are not afraid of the difficult path.
An meeting for girls (13-18 years) interested in participating in high school Cheerleading and/or Volleyball is scheduled for 2-4 p.m., Sat, 5 Mar 2016, in Room 8 of the Rock Building, Manassas Baptist Church (8750 Sudley Rd, Manassas, VA). Link to more information on Cheerleading .
Off-season training includes:
- Individualized weight lifting and conditioning
- Spring Saturday Skills training
- Individual and team camps.
A football player in training generally lifts 4-5 times a week, runs 2-3 times a week, stretches daily, and stays on track without long pauses. If you cannot get to a weight set, then pushups, situps, and pullups and squats will make you stronger than you might think!
Coaches will be posting offseason workout plans shortly. It is important that you work constantly in this offseason with weight training, speed and agility sessions, stretching, diet, and study of your position. Remember, you must develop leg explosion, chest strength, arm extension, quick feet, and endurance. Weight you put on must be good weight. Your body is growing still, and you must fuel it with good foods, hydration, and sleep.
