April League News
Strongsville Football League (SFL) Parents, Prospective Coaches and Coaches,
 
We are a league on the rise! The Strongsville Football League has kept the players and cheerleaders at the center of our growth. We have embraced and adopted USA Football http://www.usafootball.com guidelines for player/cheerleader safety, specifically around concussion and heat related issues. All coaches are certified through USA Football to keep our players and cheerleaders safe and having fun! This winter all tackle equipment and uniforms were replaced with the latest, top of line equipment to continue the safety centric stance of the league…and the new uniforms look awesome! 
America's Game Admiral William McRaven: Football coaches are shaping our leaders of tomorrow
 
To continue our path of excellence we need more adults to get involved. Every month our league has a meeting, our next meeting is Thursday, April 14th from 7-8pm (One Hour per Month) at the Senior Center (part of the Ehrnfelt Recreation Center Complex).
 
WE WANT YOU THERE! If you know you are going to coach, it is expected that you will attend. If you are considering coaching, you need to be there. If you are a parent, that hadn’t considered coaching, WE REALLY WANT YOU THERE. As a league, as a parent in the league, as a player in the league, the more organized the league is, the more value all participants will receive. 
 
*IF YOU’VE EVER HAD ANY INTEREST AND HAVE NO EXPERIENCE WHATSOEVER IN COACHING A TEAM, COME CHECK OUT A MEETING-NO PRESSURE, NO COMMITMENT. JUST TAKE THAT LITTLE STEP TO COME SEE*
 
Even if you don’t think you have time to coach, but maybe you are available to help out the coaches on a more limited basis, WE NEED YOU, come on out. You may just be a better educated parent in the stands, and that is a good thing too. Let’s support the kids in this community with all hands on deck and give them the programs they deserve. 
The experience and the journey of youth sports development and education along side your child, your Mustang, is one that can not be replicated or replaced. Join the Mustangs and be part of something special in your home town.  Create the memories that you will never forget with your friends and neighbors. You and your child will build bonds, we all will, that our the foundation of a great community.
This year we implemented more structure to our, ONE HOUR LONG, monthly meetings for efficient and effective results, planned agendas and a specific coaching topic each month: drills, organizing communication to team parents, structuring a practice, the nuances of coaching flag, o-line technique, d-line technique, etc. We are very fortunate to have resources inside and outside of the league to draw from: college football alum, high school level coaches, coaches that have coached in our league for years, coaches that have started leagues, coaches that have developed a team culture from scratch that lasted years for the players.
 
What to expect from Thursday’s Meeting Agenda:
 
-Successful Strategies for a Head Coach-Both for tackle and flag
-Example Communication Strategies to Players and Parents
-Delegating- Many hands, light work
-Organizing a practice
-Hear from a coach that has done it for many years and from a coach that head coached a tackle team for the first time last season.
"Volunteers do not necessarily have the time, they have the heart."
                                                                                                - Elizabeth Andrew
 
We look forward to seeing you Thursday April 14th!
