We will have teams compete at the 3/4 grade level against other 3/4 teams, and at the 5/6th grade level against other 5/6th grade teams. The emphasis of our program is on safety, fun, sportsmanship, learning, and participation. We will keep the number of players on a team small, so as to ensure more playing time for each individual player.
We will practice and prepare as one West Lafayette program and will instill in every player the basic fundamentals and love of the game that will help players advance to the next levels.
In addition to introducing football fundamentals and developing an appreciation for the game of football, we will strive to instill in all the positive core values of a champion including SPORTSMANSHIP, EFFORT, TEAMWORK, and DISCIPLINE.
Developing friendships, respect, building bonds, helping your teammates, humble in victory, gracious in defeat. Charitable to those in need.
Nothing less than your best effort at all times. Getting back up when you fall down. Overcoming adversity. 110%.
Working together, accepting your role, team first me second, celebrate successes as a team not an individual, encouraging.
Following the rules, attention to detail, listening, doing things the right way.
