 2013 WELCOME LETTER FOR NEW AND RETURNING PLAYERS FROM OUR PRESIDENT BERNIE CAPUTO:

 

Welcome to Tiger Pride Football. 

            North Allegheny Tiger Pride Football continues to provide the very best that youth football and cheerleading has to offer from competition, learning, skills, safety, and family fun.  We emphasize teamwork, sportsmanship, and leadership and greatly depend on the volunteer efforts of our parents as Board members, coaches, and volunteers. 

            Tiger Pride remains a stalwart on the G19 Youth Football League, our 12th season.  A North Allegheny team has brought home a championship in 7 of the 9 previous seasons and we had 2 championships in 2 of these seasons.  Further, a North Allegheny team has had a team competing for a title each of those years.  Our coaches continue to be outstanding and are teaching the kids the same system used in the high school, which has yielded 3 consecutive WPIAL titles and 2 State titles.  Tiger Pride gives the players basic knowledge of football, a base knowledge of the system that they will use later, and it teaches proper blocking, tackling, and running skills, all of which gives them a competitive edge once they graduate Tiger Pride into middle school football.  Our cheerleaders are taught by the high school cheerleader volunteers.

 

            Tiger Pride remains at the forefront of providing safety to the players.  Our equipment is checked annually and older equipment is replaced in favor of newer, safer equipment.  Most of our helmets have been purchased within the last 3 years and are certified by law every 3 years.  Older helmets are discarded.  Our shoulder pads have all been replaced in the last 2 years.  We recommend a solid plastic chin strap rather than the manufacture provided leather strap.  We are currently looking to replace the pants to provide a comfortable fit with all parts integrated, so that do not move or come out.  Our facilities are some of the best in the League, and our Blueberry game field is the best grass field in the League.       

            Football and cheerleading are FUN!  It is fun when the kids are taught well, perform hard, and display sportsmanship. 

            Help us keep Pride in Tiger Pride Football and Cheerleading.  Sign up and get your child’s friends to sign up.  Let’s all be part of a great organization.

Baseline Head Injury Testing

CONCUSSION BASELINE TESTING



Through our affiliation with UPMC Sports Medicine, Tiger Pride is now offering the opportunity to utilize ImPACT concussion baseline testing at a cost of $20.00 per athlete. This computer based online test is a series of memory and reaction questions that help establish a baseline of normal cognitive function. The baseline test will then be used as part of a comprehensive clinical evaluation to determine recovery following concussion. It should be noted that this test does not prevent concussions or determine if your son or daughter is predisposed to a concussion. The test is simply one more tool that can be used to determine if your son or daughter can safely return to play following a concussion.

This test is not mandatory, but it is strongly encouraged. Likewise, if your son or daughter were to sustain a concussion during the season I would strongly encourage him or her to seek medical care from the UPMC Sports Medicine or other concussion experts. Additional information regarding the concussion program is available on the Sports Medicine website at the address below.

Appointments for the ImPACT concussion baseline test can be made by calling UPMC Sports Medicine at 412-432-3775.

Hello Families of Tiger Pride,

Few of items of concern that need your attention



1.Physician Release Forms: These need to be completed and turned into your Team Mom/Coach by Monday August 15th or your child will not be able to continue with practice. The form is available on our website under "forms".


2.Please Care for Franklin Park’s Pavilion: While these are our practice fields made possible by awesome donations of time, labor and materials; we are still guests in Franklin Park’s facilities and we are lucky to have these awesome facilities. Franklin Park has repeatedly ask that better care and courtesy be practiced by us and our kids while at Blueberry.

a.Feet Remain on the Ground: this means no feet on the benches, tabletops or railings. Also means if you want to sit at a table – please have your feet on the floor and your butt in the seat, not your butt on the tabletop and your feet on the seat. Needless to say this is especially important when things are muddy but Franklin Park has requested we get compliance with this at all times.

b.Bathrooms: Each of us is responsible for cleaning up after ourselves and our children. Trash belongs in the trash can.

c.Parking: Handicapped Spots will be enforced and offenders will receive tickets from the Borough of Franklin Park. There is no parking along the road way up the hill out of the lower lot. If you park there you will also be ticketed. Parking at the bottom nearest to the field is for Coaches Only and will be clearly marked soon. If you are dropping your player off and they are putting things on – please pull into a parking spot so the flow can continue.



It is good to be back in full swing. Just a little bit of care and common courtesy and a great year will be had by all.

Good Luck to all in having fun learning Football and Cheerleading.
