Thank you to all that participated this season. We look forward to having you back next season. To all 8th Graders moving on to the High School level, We wish you the best and will always be rooting for our BEARS!
This Friday night is Youth Football Night at South Campus. All 2016 WBYF players are admitted free to the game if they wear their team jersey. They will be recognized on-field at halftime and will form the tunnel for the varsity team to run through to start the second half. We will have additional information to the head coaches to share with you in the next couple of days.
Each year, we offer custom clothing for purchase to our families. Samples are available for inspection at the weigh-ins. Order and pay online and all clothing will be group shipped to Podvin Park and available for your first game the week of August 22. Sales open through midnight August 4th.
At the end of last season, the WBYF Board of Directors sent out a survey to all families with the intent being to get feedback as to how we are doing. First off, thank you to everyone that replied; the response was greater than we had hoped.
One of the questions was in regard to starting the season earlier so we could try to avoid the hockey tryouts during our playoffs. The responses favored this change and were consistent with comments we received during the season. Given these responses and in an effort to let you get these dates on your calendar as soon as we could, the Board at their February meeting finalized the 2016 calendar. We are starting earlier than we ever have and this will end our season before MEA weekend; hopefully this will eliminate kids from having to make a choice between football playoffs and hockey tryouts.
There were additional comments/suggestions that came out of the survey that we are still looking at and will update you as we move forward.
Go to our calendar to see important dates for the 2016 WBYF season!
