Hello Parents & Players,
I hope this is the moment you have been waiting for!!! We are getting ready to begin the 2009 Challenger Flag Football Program.
During the off season we did experience some changes but none that will interfere with or have any negative affect to our program. Last year we were under the SIPWFL and we will now be part of the Staten Island Lions (NY’s Finest Youth Football League) and the nationally recognized Pop Warner Little Scholars.
We do expect to play the Challenger games again at Msgr. Farrell H.S. with the possibility to play some games away at other Pop Warner league affiliates and give the kids regular game opportunities. All our coaches will remain with the program including Tony Mezzacappa, Rocco DelPriore Sr and Rocco DelPriore Jr who provided tremendous inspiration to our kids last season. This season we will be requesting a $25 registration to help cover the costs of the program because I have not as of yet been able to secure sufficient funding for the program. This fee will provide the players with game jersey’s, awards and everything else that we can give the kids to make it a memorable experience on the football field.
I would like to invite all interested parents to a registration/meeting to discuss our “new” program in detail and explain our new and exciting plan and opportunities with you in person. All interested volunteers are welcome.The meeting will be held at Great Kills Little League complex on May 26,2009 at 6:30 PM. If you can’t make it Tuesday and you are interested please feel free to call me at (718)667-0241.
All interested volunteers are welcome.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone Tuesday. Have a pleasant Memorial Day weekend.
