“The thing about football - the important thing about football - is that it is not just about football.”

There are a few things we can all do to make this another great season for our league:

  • Look around your practice and game fields and notice the volunteers who keep things running smoothly (most of the time).  Some are stay at home parents, some work full time; some are caring for loved ones; some are dragging all their other kids along, too.  All to benefit your community's children.
  • Patronize your concession stands - the hotdogs, pizza and candy sales keep your league afloat helping to pay for insurance, field paint and a host of other little things that sign up fees really don't cover, but things that are necessary to keep a league running.  
  • Thank your coaches, even if you don't agree with their strategy.  
  • Cheer along with the cheerleaders when the perform cheers that really do need crowd participation
    • (All you people in the stands, give our team a great big hand... ... . . . ).  
  • Cheer positively for all the kids - not just yours.  Chances are there are kids there who don't have an extended family to chat their name when they make a play or walk onto the field.
  • Be positive!  Be positive!  Be positive!
