The Atascocita Raiders Youth Football and Cheer Organization. Parent Guide 2012. Greetings.
First let me start by stating, Thank You and Welcome to The Inaugural Season of The Atascocita Raiders. For any organization, we believe that a successful football team is about our kids, parents and relationships they develop by working together. Teamwork creates individuals into a community and motivates them to strive for the best.
The first and foremost important thing to do, as an organization, is to work very closely with each player and parent to achieve our goals. The second is to motivate them. By putting these two factors together, you have the potential for a High-Performing Football Player as well as a Team. Once we understand how the players will relate, we can then inspire team spirit and increase the motivation that will drive our Atascocita Raider Players..The following steps are how we intend to promote our Organization:
1: State a clear defined goal and purpose.2: Give the Coaches and our Staff the opportunity to make decisions and act on them.3: Be supportive and Do what you say you will Do.4: Let the team take ownership in finding solutions for winning and overcoming a loss.5: Create and Nourish Team Spirit and Team Pride.6: Make the most of every circumstance.7: Have an opportunist’s mindset.8: See the end, not the beginning and grasp it with both hands wholeheartedly and passionately.
One of our goals, as an organization, is to emphasize Education on and off the field, Basic Football Skills, Leadership, Position Perfection, Discipline, Integrity & Synergy. Atascocita Raiders has to be cohesive, energizing and compelling. It brings everyone together to work toward a common goal. By working together, sharing ideas and implementing those ideas, Atascocita Raiders will be able to provide a focused effort in achieving and maintaining the intended goal. We believe the most important focus is not so much where we are, but in what direction we are moving.
In closing, We know that there are other teams you could have chosen for your child and I want to say Thank You for choosing our organization The Atascocita Raiders. Too many people are thinking of security instead of opportunity. Here at Atascocita Raiders we hope that our mission will create Diligence, Leadership and Team for our Players, Parents and our Staff.Sincerely,
Aldrin L. GaleraAtascocita RaidersFounder & President
Please make an effort to pay all fees by the due date. Paying fees will ensure the smooth operation of the football season. In some cases, there may be fundraising opportunities.
Our goal is to learn the game, learn a few life lessons, learn and live sportsmanship, but
mainly to have fun. Our goal is to have fun every time we get together, however to have the
most fun we have to be organized and use our time wisely.
Football is a team game, every player has a job on each play. For us to succeed, every player
must know his job and how to do it. To play the game safely each player must understand
how to safely perform blocking and tackling. In order to do this, we need good listeners. We
have all kinds of kids - big, small, fast, slow, athletic, clumsy, aggressive, and passive.
We have been able to teach them all how to play the game, play it well and safely.
The one common thread for those that did well is they were all good listeners and came to
practice. Those are the only two requirements we have, as well as of course being a good
Websites to remember
I want to thank each of you for your support of the Atascocita Raiders Youth Football Program. So
far, the parents have been great. As you are aware, the program teaches young men the
fundamentals of football, the importance of achieving good grades in school, the importance
of overt sportsmanship and the opportunity to pray.
I am asking that each of you get involved in our program by encouraging your son to be on
time for practices and games and making sure he is picked up after practice or games on time.
Help him complete and turn in his school grade report on time each week.
This will also assist him in in getting an academic award also.
Support your coaches; we are all here voluntarily for your boys.
Be your son’s biggest fan. Show your support by attending his games and cheering for the
team. I ask you as a Youth Raider fan that you conduct yourself in a positive manner at
all times during games. As parents and fans, we have to set an example for the boys that show
them good sportsmanship on and off the field. We will not tolerate actions such as foul
language, unruly behavior and hollering at an official within our program. Our fans will be
examples for all other programs to follow and look up to. We set the standard.
Thanks again, for your support. I look forward to seeing each of you at our games this year.
