Hello Junior Mustang Cheer and Football families,
It is hard to believe but it has been 16ish months since we took the last snap of football. 2020 brought its own brand of craziness and it has continued to roll into 2021. The Board is hoping that you all are staying safe and sane through all of these trying times.
Our League had its kickoff meeting last night and we are plowing full steam ahead with the planning for a 2021 season. The High Schools are kicking off their month-long season and the assumption is that they will be back to a normal schedule come the fall which bodes well for a season. It may look different, but we will be playing football and having a cheer season!!!!!!!!!
It is planning and recruiting time. There were a lot of board members that aged out last year and we are in need of some backfills and help. We have recruited new uniform coordinator but still have some other needs. If you are interested in serving on the board, we are looking for the following positions as our highest need:
A lot of these positions have processes in place, and we need someone to oversee them, drive them over the line and bring your unique new ideas to them. Many hands make less effort.
Recruiting is going to be key to this year for both Football and Cheer. I think we all know that it has been an uphill battle the last few years to recruit kids to play. I am completely open to ideas on how we go about this and creative ideas. I am going to be talking with one of the LL recruiting coordinators to see what they are doing and try to work with the youth lacrosse and basketball leagues to get the word out. 2019 we had 3 teams and you could feel the energy on the practice field. Football teaches young people so many great lessons and it is worth fighting for. The Board is committed to think and do things creatively which will need to be necessary.
It is time to start getting the word out. If you know of someone that would like to get on our email list please make sure to send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get them on the list.
