Annual football meeting to be held on August 8, 2019 at the Somers Library Community Room. This will take place at 7:30pm. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
This meeting is intended to:
-Provide an update and overview of our program
-Discuss the mission of our program and set expectations for our upcoming season
-Help everyone understand processes that are available for anyone with issues or concerns during the season
-Discuss opportunities to assist the program
-Hear your questions, suggestions and complaints
For avoidance of doubt, we will not be holding any elections this year as our current board is serving a 2 year term which ends in 2020. However we will discuss process and key times and dates for those seeking to join the board in 2020.
For those unable to attend, you are welcome to send questions or concerns in advance. Detailed minutes of the meeting will also be posted on our website following the meeting.
I look forward to seeing you there!

Flag families, I hope this finds you having a great summer! I have a few important updates:
FIRST, a big thank you to John DeBisceglie for taking over as flag commissioner this year. John will run the program day to day, be your main point of contact, and take charge of our gamedays. John is in his 3th year of flag this year and has an outstanding approach to introducing our young children to flag football - so our program is in great hands.
Second, we would like to have a meeting of all volunteers next Wednesday August 21 at 8:30pm at Van Tassel. If you are volunteering to help coach please make every effort to attend. This will be a short meeting but will help us to coordinate. Anyone not yet registered to volunteer but interested may also join us - we would love to have you.
A few reminders about the program:
-Starts Sept 8 and will go until October 27
-Sunday mornings 8am-10am is the only commitment. There are no weekday practices. Our sessions consist of part practice and skill development and part games.
-We will use the lower grass fields behind the high school, although expect to have our final game on the high school astroturf
-You only need to buy grass cleats. Flags and game jerseys are provided by the program on the first day. No other equipment needed.
-The youth program will establish teams with your requests in mind, but will also work to make sure the teams are balanced.
John and I welcome all of you to Somers Youth Football and look forward to a great season.

Installment payments are now available when registering for Somers Youth Football. While new registrants can still pay the full fee up front, the SI Play registration will now also allow you to pay $125 at initial registration, followed by another $125 by July 20 and the final $125 by August 20.
If at all possible, please register ahead of next week's June 7 equipment fitting so we can get everyone fitted at once. Given the time it takes to get jerseys etc, we want to ensure that we don't miss anyone.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or your coach
