Teague Youth Football Association Needs Donations
Fifty-three young men from Teague, ranging in age from 5 -12, could use a little support from the community. The guys are all members of the Teague Youth Football Association and donations are needed to help fund the organization as they purchase uniforms, equipment, insurance and most importantly new helmets to help protect the players.
A new board of directors is running the non-profit organization, which had a bank balance of around $600 when they took over the program. Games will start at the end of August and three teams from Teague will play competitive tackle football against teams from surrounding towns such as Mart, Marlin, Groesbeck, Fairfield, Athens and Palestine.
The Teague Youth football Association instructs children with the basic fundamentals of football, physical conditioning, cooperation and respect for one another. The TYFA belongs to the Heart O? Texas Pee Wee Football Association and the teams compete for a chance to play and win the H.O.T. Superbowl.
This isn?t flag football, therefore equipment and needed and every player needs to be protected by the best equipment available. Helmets and shoulder pads are thoroughly checked for damages and defects and lots of new equipment needs to be purchased this year.
Sponsor options are available and include the following:
Equipment Sponsor - $400 or more ?would allow the purchase of much needed equipment. You would receive a league shirt, appreciation plaque and recognition in The Chronicle.
Team sponsor - $500 or more ? allows you to pick one of three teams: Bantam (5-7), Junior (8-9) or Senior (10-12). You will receive a team picture, league shirt, appreciation plaque and recognition in The Chronicle.
Player Sponsor - $75 ? there are children who are wonderful athletes in our community, but unfortunately their families do not have the funds for registration. If you can help in this way, call one of the board members and they?ll take care of it.
