Pelham Razorbacks Youth Football & Cheerleading

Home of the 2015 AYC Division 14 National Champions

The Pelham Razorbacks are a proud member of the American Youth Football and Cheer (AYF) organization, the largest youth football and cheer organization in the country.

The Razorbacks organization encourages the highest levels of sportsmanship, teamwork and fair-play.  Our affiliation with AYF ensures our kids play football and cheer in a safe, competitive and fundamentally sound environment.

Opening Weekend is Upon Us

 

Three weeks of preparation are behind us and the kids are working hard.  The cheerleaders are flying around and the football players got to hit somebody else this past weekend in Londonderry where you all saw one of the biggest differentiators the Razorbacks have… our coaching and preparation and this is true for cheer also.  This should set us up well for this weekend as we open up at home with a full Sunday schedule starting at 8am with our 8U team and ending with a 6pm start for our 10U squad.  Some important updates

  • Car decals and first wave of apparel orders are in at the shack – please pick up if yet to do so.
  • Last call for equipment bags, sleeveless tees and practice jerseys in stock and on sale at the shack.
  • New bags are on sale at- http://www.redbrickclothing.com/rbcmall/stores/store/228
    • This will close on Wednesday, August 23rd at 1159pm
  • Picture Day will now be on September 30th – more details to come from your coach or team mom.
  • The Mom and Son Jammin' Fun Dance on September 8th at Owen & Ollies is close to selling out and will be open to the public starting August 23rd.  If you still want tickets, order them quickly at the snack shack as we have a limited capacity.  See our Facebook page for more details.
  • Get your calendar raffle tickets in to the shack as we will be drawing our first 2 prizes this Sunday.
  • Next round of Razorback apparel is Opening Day, Sunday, August 27th from 10am-5pm at the shack.  There will be samples to check out and orders with payment must be made this day as this is only time we are accepting orders. 
  • We are putting the finishing touches on our main football field and ropes are up.  Please help ensure kids (or immature adults) stay off them.

 

Opening weekend is as exciting as it comes as everybody, especially the kids, cannot wait for Game 1.  Many of our families have been through this before either with a current player or cheerleader or siblings.  We do have some new families that will get their first Razorback game experience which is awesome.  I have often written and said many times “This is How We Do Things Here” aka the Razorbacks Way.  Our expectation for athletes and coaches is to always respect the game, coaches, officials, opponents and each other and we win and lose with class and dignity.  Our expectations are even higher for the adults – our fans – with these characteristics.  A reminder that the kids play (and cheer), the coaches’ coach and the officials officiate.  Cheer loud and cheer positive but refrain from yelling instructions or criticizing the officials.  It’s even ok to clap when a player or players on the other team make a great play as you will see me and our coaches do that often.

Finally – be a part of the solution with parking as game day – especially when one game is ending and another is starting – is hectic.  Our area behind the shack is roped off except for handicap parking and other assigned parking.  Do not stop until you are in a spot or behind the shack to let your child out as the main gate by Mammoth Road is locked.  Set the tone with parking at the 8am game and park head-on info fence facing soccer field.  Follow our volunteer parking personnel for where to park. 

Thank you all for your attention to the above, if you have any questions, check with your coach, team mom or stop by the shack.  The countdown starts …

Preparing for the 2017 Season

Preparing for 2017 Season

 

We are under 6 months away until opening day of Razorbacks 2017.  We have the season start date so please plan accordingly as first day of practices will be Monday July 31st.  We go Mondays-Thursday until our first weekend of games and then teams set their own practice schedules which can include Fridays and Saturdays during the season.  We do not practice over Labor Day weekend so that Friday through Monday is free for you.

Registration for the 2017 season is now open and will again be an online process.  That link is at the bottom of this message as well as available through our home page.  Please note the following important registration requirements as if they are not followed, your child will not be considered registered:

  • Payment is expected at time of registration.  Registration not accompanied by payment is considered incomplete unless prior arrangements have been made through one of our board members.

  • DO NOT register with a PO Box – we need a physical Pelham address.

  • When listing an emergency contact, you must use a different name than the parent registering the child.

  • Read the questions carefully.  

    • Grade during the 2016-17 season is the grade your child is currently in.

    • If they are currently in kindergarten – put “0”.

  • Returning players/cheerleaders who properly register and pay prior to March 15th are guaranteed a spot on a team.

  • New players/cheerleaders (along with returners) are then added after March 15th based on the date they are properly registered and paid.  Although we do not anticipate teams maxing out, if we reach capacity, we place children based on their registration date and then create wait lists.

  • Same as last year, we will only be accepting Medical Clearance forms.  The form is provided under Documents on our home page along with the Concussion Awareness waiver and Anti Bullying Form.  If your child’s physical is not scheduled until after the start of the season, you need to get this form signed off by their doctor prior to them taking field.  The doctor must sign and date this form with a 2017 date.

  • In June and July, we will have nights for additional paperwork turn in, including report cards.

 

That’s it for now as continue to check our home and Facebook page for updates.  Below is the link to register your child(ren).

Regional Finals Weekend

Regional Final Weekend

 

The Razorbacks invaded Connecticut this weekend as we had 4 teams competing in the New England Finals.  The weekend started with our D12 and D14 cheer teams giving their all against the best of the best in New England and both squads taking home 2nd place in their division.  Our Division 14 Team will be continuing on to Nationals to compete in the AYF National Championships.  On Sunday, our football teams took on the Connecticut state champs on their home turf and fought hard but could not capture the title.  Congratulations to all our athletes and thank you to all the coaches and supporters on great seasons.

Our banquets were a great time and great food as always.  Next year we are looking to change the menu a bit and try the ham and turkey options to go along with a night of chicken.

Congratulations to our new board members – Milissa Fox who will be our new Fundraising Director and Joy Cawley who will our new Cheer Director.  Thank you to all our board members for their service this year and special thanks to Dawn Tucci for her many years of service as she has been instrumental in building our cheer program to one of the elite ones in the state and New England. 

We are now in close up mode as Kenny will be collecting all outstanding football equipment and uniforms as remember that all teams must return their game jerseys except 13U as they can keep theirs as they bid farewell to our program.  Joy will also be collecting cheer uniforms.

Lastly, with our Division 14 girls heading to Florida along with some 8th graders for all stars, you will see various fundraising efforts from them.  Please help if you can or spread the word as there will be canning, raffles and other events to help defray costs. 

Keep an eye on our home and Facebook pages for updates from Florida as well as 2017 registration which will be here soon.  Have a great Thanksgiving and holiday season.
