Waitlist - 7 on 7 Team -UPDATE

UPDATE:  Great news, at this time we have enough registrants to open 7 on 7 for a second team.  If the numbers become to high for 2 teams we will have to turn on the waitlist again.  But at this time it is open for new registrations. Our goal is to allow for the highest quality experience for the athletes, so we appreciate your understanding.

 

Notice:  The 7 on 7 team has received greater than expected registrants.  While we are excited for the interest in the program we also want to ensure the players have the best experience possible.  Therefore at this time we are going to waitlist the team (7 on 7 ONLY).  The hope is to get enough registrants to fill another team.  You can sign up your child and they will be placed on the list if we can field a second team or if spots become available on the first team.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but we feel it is in the best interest of the athletes.

Calling all coaches!!!

We're in the process of gathering coaching candidates for the 2018 season. The success of our organization is extremely dependent on an outstanding coaching staff. The quality of our coaching is reliant upon the willingness of great people sharing their time, talents, knowledge and enthusiasm with our young athletes.

If you yourself are unable to coach, but know of potential candidates please forward this email to them.  Keep in mind you do not have to have kids in the program to coach.  ALL EXPERIENCED COACHES ARE WELCOME!!!

The plan is to hold interviews in mid April and make selections soon thereafter.

If you're interested in being a football Coach - please reach out to Mike Traa at  .  If you’re interested in being a Cheer coach - please reach out to Kate Hoogerwerff at   and Barbara Aukzemas at  .

Thanks!

Wildcats Fundraising thru Sponsorship and Donations

In order to make a lot of the changes that we’re looking to do this year, we are going to need more financial support than we’ve ever received.  Unfortunately, registrations fees alone aren’t enough to cover the full cost of the program – especially in a year like 2016 where we are replacing uniforms for both football players and cheerleaders. 

Many other clubs overcome these shortfalls by requiring players to do significant fundraising.  We know that many times the burden of fundraising ultimately falls on the parents – who in many cases are already over-booked.  Therefore, our hope is to be able secure the funds we need via sponsorship and donations and relieve parents of that burden.

There are four primary ways to contribute to the Wildcats (sponsorship and corporate-matching/check/credit card donations).  To the extent possible, we hope you’ll consider supporting the Wildcats in at least one of these four ways and that you’ll pass this email along to anyone you know who you think may be interested in supporting us.

-------------------

Business Sponsorship
Our Business sponsorship program that will not only give Businesses an opportunity to support the Wildcats but we believe that it will also provide them with a lot of marketing value that is hard to come by in this area.  There are several packages that include various combinations of field banners, ads in our Game Day Program, logos on our website, etc.

Note that there is one special package that is only available to the parents of a Wildcat called “The Wildcat”.  If your employer is willing to sponsor the Wildcats for $1,000, not only will they receive a valuable marketing package from the Wildcats, but your child will also get a free registration.

Please contact Matt Hepworth at mdhepworth1@gmail.com for more information.

Check Donation
To support the Wildcats with a check donation, please make the check out to the “Avon Grove Wildcats” and mail it to PO Box 103, West Grove, PA 19390.  You can also hand a check to Elsje Kumpon or myself in person.

Credit Card Donation
In order to make a credit card donation in $25 increments, simply go to www.avongrovewildcats.com and go to the “Online Donations” link on the left hand panel.  You can also go there directly by clicking here: http://avongrovewildcats.com/Store/Item.asp?id=18991&n=&org=avongrovewildcats.com.

Corporate Matching Donation Programs
There are several corporate programs that allow employees to contribute to a non-profit organization where the company then matches the donation amount.  Organizations like Bank of America and United Way participate in programs like this.  If your company offers this type of program, please consider selecting the Wildcats as an organization that you support.
