Remember the regular season is about Team development, “EVERYONE makes the PLAYOFFS”; so Keep it FUN!!
The impact you can make on this Community and this new generation can be life altering. The Life lessons you teach will be much more enduring than your record.
Whether you like it or not you are role models. Control your sidelines. You set the tone for the Players, Parents, and ultimately the league; so win or lose, do it with Class. Demonstrate Good Sportsmanship, shake hands after every game, and genuinely thank the opponent for the opportunity to compete.
“New Spotlight Player award- Coaches please be active nominating your players for Community, Academic or Athletic excellence! Every week we will select an individual that best embodies the ideals we prize as a League.
Lastly, Control you Sidelines Remind your Families: “Coaches Coach, Refs Ref, Players Play and Parents Cheer. If we all stick to our roles we will have another Banner Season.
Fall Season resumes soon and we will once again highlight the Players who best prize our Values of Leadership, Community involvement, and excellence in Sports and Academics.
In Flag Football, every play matters.
