We're very excited and proud to be sharing with you all, that for the football season,the coaches,officers and administrators of the Mt.Pleasant Area Junior Football League, Inc.,(MPAJFL) will be taking strides to become the LEADER in the way football will be coached and played now and in the future. MPAJFL pride ourselves in leading the way in the surrounding area when it comes to the safety of our players. Instructing players on proper techniques to make sure the game is played as safe as possible and to help prevent injuries is ensured,one requirement is that every coach must have a current certification from USA FOOTBALL. This will continue into this season and beyond. All coaches will need to have a certification or (re-certification) from USA FOOTBALL, before the season begins. In order to further provide a safer environment and a place for the players to play,learn and grow, we will be conducting background checks for all coaches, assistant coaches,officers and administrators of the league through NCSI an affiliate of USA FOOTBALL,before any of the coaches,officers and administrators are able to be on the practice or game day fields they must have their background checks completed. Safety is a two way street, and to support this, MPAJFL requires that all players must have their BASELINE TESTING and PHYSICALS completed before they can practice. MPAJFL provides the opportunities for the BASELINE TESTING and PHYSICALS during pre-season. It will be up to the parent/s to ensure that these requirements are met and completed before their child or children are allowed to practice. Through MPAJFL and USA FOOTBALL working together, we assure you that the game of football will be coached at the highest level expected by the league. The league has initiated these changes and will continue to move in the direction of becoming the LEADER in the way football is coached and played among the other leagues in the area. It's the goal of the M.P.A.J.F.L. to provide the youth a recreational sport that they can be proud to be a part of, now and into the future. These changes are not only beneficial to the cheerleaders,players, and parents, but to all the coaches,officers and administrators of the league. As we head into our 50th anniversary of the league, the coaches,officers and adminstrators would like to take this opportunity to say; THANK-YOU to all you, for your support,cooperation and understanding as we continue to make changes for the betterment of our league for the 2015 season and beyond.
Some succeed because they are DESTINED to, but most succeed because they are DETERMINED.
If we all work together, we can make our league; BIGGER, BETTER, and GREATER than it has ever been.
