Letter from the President - April 2015

To the Members of the “Jr. Eagle Nation”:

                April already?! I wish the weather would get the memo! Spring is here and spring sports are in full practice mode gearing up for season openers! We are gearing up, too…for our first registration!

                April 11 (10a to 2p) and April 12 (12p to 2p), we will be holding our first registrations for the 2015 season at the Field House! We are excited to see your eager, smiling faces again as we can’t wait for football and cheer season to start! Registration fees are as follows:

Football                               $125.00
Cheerleader                         $115.00
Each additional sibling receives a $20.00 discount. (Excluding flag)
Flag Football                         $65.00
Flag Cheerleader                   $65.00

Additional Costs

$20 raffle per family (mandatory)

$60 Football Camp ($30 each additional player) (Optional but strongly recommended!)

$65 Cheer Camp ($60 each additional cheerleader) (Optional but strongly recommended!)

Also, this year cheer registration will cover everything but the warm-ups, including (but not limited to) leggings, poncho, bloomers, midriff, shoes, and bow. And if your warm-ups from last year are still in good shape, you can use that too! So, very minimal additional costs with cheer! (Again, we do STRONGLY encourage all athletes to attend camp!)

                I know this is April Fool’s Day, but what I am about to say is unfortunately not a joke. The West Carroll Rec Council has made the very difficult decision to not offer football for the fall of 2015. Running an organization like this only works if we get the interest from the community. Unfortunately, over the past few years, the interest in the Veterans declined to a point that WCRC had no choice but to disband their football program. While this is not good news, we can turn it into a positive by hopefully welcoming those families into our Jr. Eagle family! If you know of someone who played for West Carroll last year, let them know about our program. If they have any questions, they are more than welcome to contact me and ask away!

                Hopefully the talent and knowledge that comes over from their program will help us build not only our program, but the high school’s as well. We are still working with Coach Smith to form a plan to start building the foundation for their teams. This process will take time and patience. Rome wasn’t built in a day, after all! But we are confident that with our coaches and staff, we can turn this program and the high school’s into solid competitive football teams!

                For those just getting into our program, our Flag and Mini Pony levels focus on strictly learning the game. We put the FUN in fundamentals! We do not keep score and the goal is to get kids exposure to different positions and skills. Our upper levels (Pony, JV and Varsity) play with the playoffs in mind. We look to build a “Team-first” mentality throughout all levels! But make no mistake…starting at Pony, we strive to put the best team of players on the field for any given situation!

And parents, don’t forget we still have open Board Positions as well as coaching positions available:

BOARD POSITIONS: Football Coordinator/League Rep, Alternate League Rep, Equipment Manager, Field & Building Maintenance Manager

COACHES:              Football: Flag                        Cheer: Flag, Mini Pony, Pony

                So, as you focus on your spring sports and then your summer vacations, keep football and cheer registrations in the back of your mind! Good luck with your spring sports and we look forward to seeing you at registration! As always, please do not hesitate to contact us with your questions!
