Welcome To Norwood Football and Cheer

**PLAYOFFS**

 

The playoff schedule is being completed and should be posted Tuesday, 10/21.  The final standings for grades 5-8 can be found on the Baystate site http://www.bsyfcc.com/pb/wp_45c3d70f/wp_45c3d70f.html.

 

 

**CHEER NATIONALS FUNDRAISER**

 

The Norwood Mustangs “A Team” won 1st place at the Baystate Cheerleading Competition on Oct 18, 2014 with this amazing routine.  Next is Regionals on Nov 22 and with a win there they would advance to Nationals in Orlando, Fl, Dec 11-14!  As you can imagine these 14 hardworking 8th graders have their eyes on the prize!

As the Cheer Coordinator for Norwood Youth Football & Cheer, as well as a parent of a girl on the team, I have watched these girls come together as a team, overcome injuries, take both criticism and praise, and above all work together toward their goal.  Many of them have been cheering since they were 7 years old!  The sky is the limit for these girls, but they will need financial support should they earn a bid to Nationals.  The cost for airfare, hotel, food and essentials directly related to the competition in December is $1500/cheerleader.  With combined fundraising efforts we hope to be able to cover the majority of the cost for all the girls.


All donations will go into the Norwood Youth Football & Cheer Nationals Fund.  Should the girls fall short of a bid to Florida this year, the fund will accrue interest and be there for the next Norwood “A Team” to earn the opportunity to advance.  There are some stellar cheerleaders coming up through the ranks of NYFC!

Please consider making a donation to support these youth athletes on their road to Regionals and their quest for a National title.  Any contribution you can make, no matter how small is very significant to the squad and is greatly appreciated.

***VOLUNTEERS NEEDED***

 

Now that we have the schedule, we need volunteers.  As you’re aware, our Board is smaller this year and already overloaded with work to keep this program going.  We do this for our children and yours and because we want to see Norwood youth sports thrive.  However, eight people cannot do this all by ourselves.  Each family is asked to volunteer one shift per season.  It really is that easy.  Remember, your child has to arrive about an hour before game time anyway, so help out then!  For example:

-If your child plays in the first game, help us set up the field, get out the merchandise, get the grill fired up – we’ll even throw in a free cup of coffee.
-If your child plays in the second game, volunteer during the game before or better still, during the game after.  Let him/her run off the rest of their energy and watch the next game while you flip a few burgers.
-If your child plays in the third game, volunteer during the second game, or stay around for 30 minutes after the last game is over to put away the field equipment or pack up the food and merchandise.

 

This year, we’re also asking parents to get involved with our table at Norwood Day.  Come sit with us for an hour and people watch while we sell merchandise.  Board members would also like to enjoy the day with our families and not be tied to the table all day.  Pick an hour and help us out!

Fill out this volunteer form and turn it in by this Thursday’s practice.  Beginning next Tuesday, remaining spots for our first home game will be assigned to specific teams and a team parent will be appointed to get the slots filled.  Pick your preferred slot now!  Volunteers Needed
