BCF MISSION STATEMENT
The goal of our organization is to develop and promote youth football and cheer regardless of race, creed, or gender. We will develop a competitive spirit in all of our participants without compromising their safety or welfare. Winning is not the goal, but developing fundamentals, friendship, and basic leadership skills is. This will determine and is the measure of our success. To achieve these objectives, we will create an environment in which our children will prosper and grow while providing a supervised program that not only supports the HDYFCC but is in compliance with its rules and regulations.
We will endeavor to make the game of football fun for our players, and not a source of glory for ourselves. We will, by our actions and attitude, practice true sportsmanship, remembering that by our example we are teaching our young players to win with humility and to gracefully accept defeat. We will strive to teach the skills of the game with patience and understanding. We will praise when deserved and encourage and teach, not condemn, when a mistake is made. We will remember that the feelings and welfare of our players are far more important than the outcome of any game.
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
The main purpose of our organization is to give our children a place to participate in the game of football without all the undue pressures of competitive sports. I feel that we have accomplished this mission and have succeeded in providing a positive and constructive environment in which over 200 youth players were able to play the game of football. On behalf of our chapter, I would like to thank all of the coaches, referees, coordinators, parents, staff, and players who made the 2014 season a success. I am looking forward to even greater things in 2015.
