Holmdel Cheer Kick-Off Night!

CHEERLEADERS!

 

Not that we wish the summer over before it has started, but  . . . We are looking forward to our 2017 Football and Cheer season!!!

 

To make sure we are prepared and ready to go, please remember to register your child ASAP at www.holmdelfootballasociation.com.  Doing so helps us to know how many teams we will have so we can start communicating practice schedules and other items as soon as possible.


We are also holding another Holmdel Cheer Kick-Off night -

Please stop by the Holmdel Senior Center on Wednesday June 14 6:00 -8:00 pm 

At the Senior Center on June 14th you will be able to:

 

-Hand in all fully completed required forms.  All of the forms and additional information can be found on the HFA website (and are attached at bottom of this message for your convenience).

Please also bring:

-copy of your child's birth certificate as well as the original if your child has never cheered before;

-proof of medical insurance (copy of both sides of insurance card);

            -Purchase Holmdel Cheer apparel. (shorts, tanks, sweat suits, backpacks) – fun vendors!

          -Get your daughter sized for booty shorts and sized for / order competition sneakers.  This year we will only be  asking you to purchase new sneakers for competition.  Non-competitive teams (flag and Mighty-mite) and game day sneakers for competitive teams can be purchased on your own. Just please make sure they are all white and clean.

           - Purchase Cheer Bows – big blingy, bright Cheer Bows  - OMG Cheer bows!!

2017 Fooball Division Changes

 

Earlier this year at the 2017 January JSAYF General Membership Meeting, member towns from throughout the Jersey Shore Conference overwhelmingly voted to move from Age-Weight to Age-Only to determine what teams players may join.  This moves our football teams to model most other youth sports (e.g., baseball, soccer, basketball, lacrosse) where participants will mostly play against kids their own age.  The 2017 divisions vs. 2016 divisions are illustrated below:

2017 Divisions

Why did they make this move?

  1. Would allow more opportunities for kids to participate as they are no longer limited by weight creating larger pools of kids and the ability to field more teams.
  2. Eliminates the need to “cut-weight” to make a team.
  3. Eliminates moving younger but heavier kids up to play against older kids as well as eliminates older, faster and more mature kids from playing down against younger kids.
  4. Levels the playing field; most successful teams were those that were composed mainly with older & lighter players. Larger towns with bigger populations had a larger pool of older/lighters putting smaller towns at a disadvantage.
  5. Aligns Jersey Shore nationally with most other AYF leagues that have or are in the process of moving to Age Only. 

How does this impact Holmdel?

  1. Since teams are now age-based, which team you sign your child up for will be based on his/her age as of 7/31 only.  Please note that the registration numbers may dictate that Holmdel may not be able to offer all teams at all levels.  As in the past, players can always play up (but never play down).  Therefore, you may choose to allow your child to play up if we do not offer a certain team.  Or you may apply for a waiver to join a team that is not offered by Holmdel in an approved town as allowed by Jersey Shore.
  2. Since this rule was adopted by Jersey Shore, all surrounding towns that are part of NJAYF will be offering the same teams.  As such, we do not anticipate any drastic changes to our game schedules.
  3. Weigh-in prior to games will no longer be required.

It is extremely important to the Board that we address any concerns that you may have regarding this change.  As such, we will be holding an information session prior to registrations to answer any and all questions regarding this change or to discuss any other questions that you may have regarding the 2017 season.  We look forward to seeing you soon and more importantly to another successful football & cheer season.

**Information/Registration Session coming SOON!!**
