"The Great Pee-Wee Dust-Up Of 09!!"

Hold on to your hats folks, the Pee-Wees are set to play some ball this Sunday!!

We will be conducting a round-robin jamboree style event with shortened games played on a half-field. The Jamboree is intended to familiarize the young players with the game and to run their offensive and defensive schemes against live competition. Regular Season Games will begin next weekend (see "League Schedule and Information Link" At Right).

The Great Pee Wee Dust-Up of 09 is set for Sunday, September 6th at the NDSS playing fields.

  • Each team will get three "games" of twenty minutes each. There will be a ten minute break between each "game".
  • The Jamboree will start at 10:00am and finish at 12:30pm.
  • Teams will start on the 40 yard line and work toward the endzone.
  • If something negative happens to the offense (fumble, interception, turnover on downs) the opposing team will start on the 30 yard line and work towards the endzone.
  • If the offense chooses to punt, the other team will start with the ball on the 40 yard line.

Concession: We will have a concession available for the Jamboree. All proceeds will go towards the purchase of uniforms, protective equipment and to the costs of running a football program. Please support our concession.

Changeroom/Bathroom Facilities: Will be available.

Water: Please ensure your child brings his/her water bottle to the jamboree.

Weather: We practice and play football in any kind of weather.

Cheering/Spectator Conduct: Cheer as loudly as you like for your team but never against the other team. As adults, we are all role models for the youth on the field. Never belittle or berate game officials.

How You Can Help:

Please volunteer to run the Down Box/Chain Set. It is an essential duty and easy to do.

When the Jamboree is over, please give us a helping hand with the storage of the sideline markers, goal-post pads, down-box/chains etc. Every little bit is a terrific help!!

Please Do Not Stand Behind Your Child's Bench Area: Though well meaning, parents who do this are a distraction from the game and create sideline management issues. The players and coaches need their space during games. Please respect this.

Safety: It is very important to make sure you stand/sit at least 5 yards from the sidleines. Small children should be monitored at all times.

To Everyone: Have a terrific time on Sunday and a fun and rewarding season ahead!!
