HELENA–School is back in session and that means football is right around the corner for children of all ages.

The Helena High School varsity football team kicks off the season on Aug. 29 at Mountain Brook but before that, parents, younger fans and more will have the opportunity to meet members of the team on Saturday, Aug. 13 at Husky Stadium for Husky Day.

In addition to a scrimmage that will be held at 7:30 p.m., members of the HHS football team will take photos with fans, sign autographs and more at approximately 6 p.m.

Husky Day also highlights the Helena youth football teams earlier in the day beginning at 2 p.m. with the second and third grade teams followed by fourth grade playing at 3 p.m., fifth grade playing at 4 p.m., sixth grade playing at 5 p.m. and the Helena Middle School team playing a scrimmage at 6:20 p.m.

For the youth league teams, each team will warm up behind the end zone prior to the start of their scheduled game time. Each team will play a game consisting of two 20-minutes halves with a running clock. The games also include an eight-minute halftime.

The cost of admission is $5 and all players, coaches or cheerleaders will get in free of charge if wearing a uniform.

Inflatables will be on campus for Husky Day and parents can purchase an all-day pass for their child for $5.
