Return To Play Protocol & Waiver Release

The board has been busy preparing for the start of the season while closely monitoring any and all developments relating to the Covid-19 outbreak. With that said, we are certain many of you have questions and concerns regarding the season and Covid-19.

Please be assured that the health and safety of our players, cheerleaders, coaches and parents is our number one priority. Having said that, we have established a Return to Play Protocol and a Waiver which is available in the Forms section on our Mars Youth Football & Cheer website.  Some of the safety measures we would like to highlight include:

  • Temperature checks via a contactless thermometer will be taken prior to all practices and games

  • Medics will be available at all practices and games

  • All equipment will be disinfected between uses

  • Hand sanitizer will be available during practice and games

Please take some time to review the Protocol and Waiver prior to the start of the season. All players and cheerleaders will be required to sign and return the Waiver prior to participating in the season as well as camp. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Giovanni Cuzzocrea (724-584-1900 or or John Yurisinec (724-244-6530 or

The Mars Youth Football and Cheer board are committed to making this a safe and successful season; however, we can only do this with your help! It is incumbent on you, the parent, and your child to understand, agree to and abide by the Return to Play Protocol and Waiver. With the cooperation of the players, cheerleaders, coaches and parents, the board is confident we will enjoy a safe and successful season. Go Rockets, Astros and Martians!

Save your Chick-fil-A & Moe's Receipts!


Once again for the 2020 season, M.A.R.S. will be participating in a rewards program with our local Chick-fil-A and Moe’s Southwest Grill.  Everyone in our organization can participate and help by saving your receipts.  I mean, who doesn't like chicken or tacos?!?!  


Chick-fil-A and Moe’s Southwest Grill have graciously agreed to reward our organization with a food credit worth 20% of the total in receipts that we collect.  This food credit will then be used to offset any future catering orders that we place with Chick-fil-A and Moe’s Southwest Grill.


Receipts will be collected at the concession stand at every home game.

2020 Sponsorship

Do you own a business?  Do you work for a business that might be willing to sponsor our youth?  Do you frequent the same coffee shop, salon, or gym?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, we ask that you look at the Sponsorship Program that’s located in our Downloadable Forms section.
Game Day Program
Game day programs will be available at each of our home games this season.  Ad space will be sold to local companies or families within our organization.  This is great way for local businesses to promote themselves to area families!  Consider purchasing an ad or even a Well Wish to congratulate them and wish them luck as they move onto middle school!  Please take a minute to look over the Game Day Program in our Downloadable Forms section.
