Welcome to AJFC
by posted 05/24/2019

Welcome to the 2019 Season!  This is our 49th year as Alden Junior Football & Cheerleading Association, so we have a long history to build upon. The best part about AJFC is the kids. Seeing the park come to life on the first night of practice is second only to the first game day. It is always exciting to see the kids in their uniforms. All of us remember the first time our child put on their uniform. The thrill of being part of a team beams from the smile that spreads across their face. Much more important than scoreboards and judges, are the memories our kids make each season.

 

As some of you know, this is a non-profit organization operated by the parents and overseen by an elected Board of Directors (parents like yourself.)  All Directors, Commissioners, Coordinators, and Coaches volunteer their time and no one receives any salary. All of AJFC’s funds are committed to providing a quality experience for our football and cheerleading participants. The Board meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 8:00 pm, at the Whistle Stop Inn. PLEASE NOTE THE AUGUST MEETING WILL BE AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER AT THE FRONT OF THE PARK IMMEDIATELY AFTER PRACTICE.  These meetings are always open to the public and we welcome and encourage participation. Please remember that we are all volunteers, and if there is something that you think could be improved then we encourage to talk to one of the board members or coaches.  You can find contact information for each our Board of directors and their committee assignment on our website.  Emails can besent to ajfcbulldogs@yahoo.com, please allow a few days for a response as we are all volunteers.  You may also call/text the President, Football Commissioner and Cheerleading Coordinator for more urgent matters.

 

Running a football and cheerleading program is very costly. We receive no funding from the Federal, State, Town or Village governments. Registration fees provide only a small part of the funds required to finance the program. Fundraisers and the concession stand at home games provide the additional operational funds. Home games require a lot of work from our team of parents. Volunteer opportunities are available in the concession stand, setting up and cleaning up the fields and helping with various tasks during the games.  There are also many volunteer opportunities throughout the year.  Your participation models the importance of civic duty and shows your dedication to the participants.  You can contact your Team Mom/ Manager to volunteer.

 

Every Coach for AJFC is NYCSA certified   They all have passed a background check.  All football coaches are also trained in Heads Up technique.  Player safety is our primary objective.  At least one coach on each team is CPR certified.

 

Most practices are open, and you are encouraged to observe your child. Some practices may be closed so that the participants can prepare for their game or competition without distractions.

We appreciate your cooperation with respecting the coach’s decision to close a practice.

 

It is very important that each athlete try to make all practices and arrive on time.  These sessions are needed for conditioning to prevent injuries and to make certain that your child is receiving proper training and instruction as they participate in the ultimate team sports of football and cheerleading. Coaches are available to talk with you before or after practices regarding questions or concerns.  We ask that everyone refrain from talking to the coaches about the game for at least 24 hours after the game unless it is an urgent matter of safety.  If a parent/guardian has concerns about their child or coaching activities, they should first address the issue with the head coach, and then to either the Football Commissioner or Cheerleading Coordinator.

 

Parents are encouraged to contact their child’s team mom/manager for “off field” activities such as volunteering, fundraisers, banquet, etc.

 

As a Board we hope that you and your child take an active role in AJFC. We are all here for the children, and as an added bonus:  new, long-standing friendships have been known to start on our football fields.

 

Sincerely,       

 

AJFC Board of Directors
