Message Regarding Sept. 2 Football Games at Assumption’s New Stadium

Dear Assumption Community,

This coming Thursday will mark a historic event for Assumption High School. We will be hosting our first home football game at the new stadium facility right here at Assumption! The Knights will host the Wahlert Catholic Golden Eagles for their first ever HOME GAME! The Fresh/Soph team will tee it up at 5:00 and the varsity will kick-off sometime after 7:15.

Since this is our first ever game at our new facility, there are bound to be some things that may have been overlooked. We will be learning as we go and issues may arise. We ask for your patience and understanding as we begin this journey. Our goal is to provide the best game night experience for our players, students and school community!

-Assumption fans are asked to park in the Assumption student parking lot on game night. It may be a good idea to carpool until we know what our games nights will look like.

-Seating will be limited! Fans are encouraged to bring lawn chairs!

-Concessions will be available by our Assumption Booster Club and outside food and beverages will not be allowed inside the stadium gates.

The Varsity players will begin a New Tradition prior to entering the field for warm-ups after the Fresh/Soph game. The varsity team will walk from the Assumption Football locker room to the south field entrance at the 5:00 minute mark of the 4th quarter of the Fresh/Soph game. Students, parents and fans are invited to line the path as the Knights head to the field. We hope this will be a great experience for our players and for all the Assumption community.

It’s going to be an exciting night! We hope all of you can join us to celebrate our first home game and hopefully a big win on Thursday! Let’s Go Knights!

Sincerely Yours in the Assumption Spirit,

Wade King
Head Football Coach
Athletic Director
