With the first week and a half of 2019 football preseason completed, we now enter the scrimmage phase from now until the weekend before the season opener Sept. 12.
Below is a list of 2019 scrimmages scheduled and reported to CIAC. Any team that began fall practice on Aug. 19 can begin playing contact scrimmages on Wednesday, August 28. The remainder of the teams that started their 2019 preseason on Friday, August 24, officially can begin their scrimmages on September 2.
These schedules are tentative. They can be changed and/or canceled any time. They’re also incomplete, since schools are not required to post their scrimmages and, quite a few, decline to do so. This is to give you an outline of what’s scheduled on the CIAC site. You can check for changes on the CIAC football master schedule here.
[Some of these are joint practices, not scrimmages.]
If you know of any definitive schedule dates that are not listed here, or if you know of any other changes, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Changes in the schedule will be noted in red. But don’t expect this post to be as up-do-date as you need it to be.
