The thermometer says summer, the calendar says fall.

Sort of.

Temps pushed 80 degrees in town Wednesday, but that didn’t stop the Coupeville High School football team from kicking off the first day of practice for a new season.

Volleyball, soccer, cross country, and tennis all begin Aug. 22, but the gridiron giants get a jump on things.

That’s because the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association requires football players to have 12 practices to be eligible for games, while all other sports only need 10.

The first official game of the 2022-2023 school year arrives Sept. 2, when Wolf football travels to Klahowya for a non-conference tilt.

With things underway, we present a smorgasbord of pics from a team camp held in Tenino several weeks back.

It’s go time.

With the start of fall football practice just six days out, Coupeville has set Wednesday, Aug. 17 as its fall sports registration day for middle and high school athletes.

The event runs from 12-5 PM in the CHS/CMS library.

The high school offers volleyball, girls and boys soccer, cross country, boys tennis, and football in the fall, with CMS fielding volleyball, cross country and (possibly) boys soccer.

Players and parents can submit new sports physicals, pay athletic and ASB fees, as well as complete applications for free and reduced food service.

Physicals are good for two years in Washington state, unless otherwise noted by the doctor.

With the schools moving much of the paperwork online, all student athletes need to have an account set up through the Final Forms link, which is here:

Sports are all about numbers.

So, with that in mind, even though we’re still comfortably mired in the middle of the summer, we can take a few moments to crunch some digits.

I mean, what else are we going to do with our time? There are no high school, middle school, or even little league games to write about right now.

And don’t get me started on why little league has to end play so early…

Yes, yes, it’s so the teams still alive can (seemingly) devote a month or more to postseason play and allows for summer vacations to not bump up against games.

But it also means your little league season competes with spring high school sports for eyeballs, instead of staking a claim to being the only game in town.

Like I said, don’t get me started…

Back in our world of lazy, hazy number-crunching, the countdown to the return of school sports has begun — even if few people are thinking about such things.

As of today — Sunday, July 24 — here’s where we sit:

It’s 24 days until Aug. 17, which is the first day of fall practice for Washington state high school football programs.

Then we hit Aug. 22 (which is 29 days out) and all other sports — volleyball, soccer, tennis, and cross country — kick into gear with the start of practice.

Getting biblical, for a moment, the first game of the 2022-2023 school year is exactly 40 days away, with Coupeville High School football slated to travel to Silverdale Sept. 2 to face Klahowya.

Finally, Sept. 6 — a mere 44 days ahead on the calendar — brings the first home games for the Wolves, with boys and girls soccer, plus volleyball, all hosting Auburn Adventist Academy.

So now you know, and can promptly return to your lazy, hazy summer Sunday content in the knowledge that at least one of us is spending way too much time focusing on random facts and figures.

Me. I’m talking about me.

A little less soccer this season.

Pitch fans will still be able to watch both Coupeville High School programs play, but the farm team is taking the fall off.

Athletic Director Willie Smith confirmed Monday that the Coupeville Middle School boys soccer season has been cancelled.

The decision was based on the program — which is currently without a coach — being unable to attract enough interested players.

CMS, which is returning to action after playing just intramurals last season due to Covid, will still field volleyball and cross country programs this fall.
