NC DMV Identification Cards
Our league has implemented a certification process that includes NC DMV ID cards. The Craven Jaguars requires all 15U, 12U, 10U & 8U players to obtain a NC DMV ID card for the 2014 Season. Military IDs are accepted. IDs are not required to start the practice season on July 28th. There is approximately a 2 week turn around for ID cards. No player will be able to play in games without an ID card. This process further aids in ensuring proper uniformity with certification for all associations within our league. Another advantage of using ID cards is the safety factor. Should a child ever get lost, all the identifying information on the ID card can be in any police car & Amber alert system in America in less than 2 minutes!
To obtain an ID card, you can set up an appointment or drop by one of the below locations.

VALUES & VIRTUES
We are committed to promoting & instilling Honesty, Loyalty, Integrity, Teamwork, Discipline, Sportsmanship, Respect, Leadership, Trust, and Commitment in our young participants. We believe these values and virtues are important to their growth and to becoming productive members of our community and society.
We will instill in our youth the challenge of competition, the joy of victory, the reality of defeat, the importance of commitment, and the spirit of community. The Craven Jaguars emphasize the importance of academic achievement among athletes and aim to recognize those with exemplary athletic performance while achieving academic success; and by doing so, prepare our young athletes for the challenges of high school and collegiate environments.
Achieve our objectives through organizing our dedicated volunteers, caring parents, and business associates who wish to partner with our superb youth sports programs.
I. To provide a wholesome competitiveness within the scope of our rules and regulations while cultivating values intrinsic to football and preparing players for life.
II. To teach the proper techniques and fundamentals of football while instilling a knowledge and appreciation for the game.
III. To provide a responsible football program that stimulates community interest for football where players develop athletic skill and character through hard work, courage, dedication and perseverance.
IV. To promote good sportsmanship, teamwork, highest morale, physical standards, a strong work ethic, and the importance of academic achievement.
