2015 Kids and Pros

 

We are excited to announce our partnership with Kids & Pros Camps. To celebrate this partnership we are having our 1st FREE Kids and Pros football camp. Kids & Pros along with the Atlanta Falcons have been at the forefront of the USA Football "Heads Up" program and we are excited that they are able to come out and instruct our kids and coaches on the techniques that are designed to take Head out of the game of football. In addition to this outstanding opportunity for our kids and coaches we will also be having our annual registration for the upcoming Fall Season. If that wasn't enough we are also kicking off our first "First String Family Fun 5K Run"

Message from the President


2014 marked a significant decline in the Buccaneers program; participant numbers are down by more than 50%. My belief is that this decline is due to more than just concussion/injury concerns. I believe we have lost a large number of participants due to issues specific to the Buccaneers association itself.

The past is behind us and it’s time to move the program forward. My plan is to make 2015 a rebirth of the program. To that end there are several initiatives the board of directors will be implementing.

 

1. The "WE ARE ONE" message. We are one. One Heart, One Team. Anyone that wears a Bradfordville Buccaneer shirt, football or cheer uniform is a sister or a brother. We have too many involved in Pop Warner that only want to win games. Don't get me wrong, I want to win games! However we must foster a better sense of community.

2. Market the academic program. We must find a way to better communicate with our community and educate them that this is not just a football or cheer program.

3. Sponsorship Program - If we can raise more funds we can provide a higher standard of equipment, facilities and additional services to our participants.

4. Modified Draft - In the past several years team formation has become the single biggest complaint program administrators have received.

Goals

1. Foster a better sense of comradeship between programs (football, cheer, dance), divisions, coaches, players, parents

2. Grow the program. I want 500 participants by the end of the 2016 season.

3. Improve participant retention.

Rest assured that myself and every other board member is commited to providing the best experience for EVERY participant in the Buccaneers program.

Matt Cronley

President

Sponsor & Business Partner Information

 


 

Tallahassee is proud to offer girls and boys opportunities to participate in the Pop Warner Little Scholars programs. Pop Warner exists to use football, cheerleading, dance and a respect for education to develop strong, smart, responsible, healthy young men and women. We give them experiences that build their appreciation for and understanding of leadership, teamwork, and discipline.

 

The mission of Pop Warner Little Scholars is to enable young people to benefit from participation in team sports and activities in a safe and structured environment. Through this active participation, Pop Warner programs teach fundamental values, skills and knowledge that young people will use throughout their lives. 

 

The Big Bend Pop Warner league of Tallahassee is home to several area associations based on geographical areas of Leon County. One of the area leagues is the Bradfordville Buccaneers locally referred to as “the Bucs”. This year the Bucs have over 150 football players and 30 cheerleaders ranging in age from 5 to 15 years.

 

In order to keep this program running, we are currently looking for business sponsorships or individual donations. Each area association stands alone and is required to fund our own program including buying helmets, shoulder pads, game equipment, rental of field space, officials, security at games and even emergency medical services.  The price tag to run an organization like this for our children has a very high price tag. It costs over $30,000 annually to run and organize a safe and successful youth football and cheer program. Much of this expense goes towards equipment purchase and/or reconditioning, field expenses, safety certification, and scholarship programs.

 

At $125.00, our registration fees are among the lowest in the country. However the annual cost is $300 per football player and $200 per cheerleader.

 

If you would like to make a donation to support the Bradfordville Buccaneers Pop Warner Little Scholars Association, our organization has been established as a 501(c)(3) not for profit tax exempt organization. Our federal tax identification number is 23-1582287.

 

We appreciate your support of the Bradfordville Buccaneers Pop Warner Little Scholars Association.
