The players of SL Football Club will be showing off their athleticism by participating in a mandatory SL Football DASH on August 15th at 8:00 a.m. at Standley Lake High School. We will be doing this as the primary fundraiser for the league as well as for our individual teams.
All family members are welcome to participate in the run. Each participant will receive a t-shirt. The fee to run the race is $20.00 a person if you register before the race. The fee will be $30.00 if you register on the day of the race. You will be receiving a pledge sheet in the near future to raise money for the league and your team. The pledge sheet will be a way for the players to get their neighbors, families and friends to donate money to their league and their team.
As another fun filled season fast approaches, we would like to welcome everyone, old and new. Many exciting things are happening in our league and I would like to take this opportunity to update you all.
There have been some changes on the board, as some of you may know. I am the new President of the league and I am thrilled to serve on this board. I look forward to providing great leadership, while ensuring all of our children have memorable and valuable experiences. My wife and I have been invested in this league for years, not only as a coach and a team manager, but as parents of two young players. Our family is proud to call Stanley Lake Football Club our football home.
Under the new leadership, we are happy to have Shane Cahalan serve as Vice President. Shane brings great knowledge and enthusiasm to this football program. He is a great leader with so much passion for our kids and the sport. Shane and his wife coach and manage a team for our league and are proud parents of players.
I would like to thank Kelly Worm and Wade Smith for returning this season as Secretary and Treasurer. They both bring so much valuable knowledge and experience from their long time involvement and participation in this league.
Among those listed above, I would like to thank all the new and returning board members, listed at the end of this letter. The list of people who have graciously offered to volunteer for various duties and activities does not stop at those listed below. You will continue to see many other familiar faces around the league. Please offer your support and talents to all of these people, as they offer their talents and time to make such a positive impact on our children. Shane and I are so grateful to we working with and learning from such a great team.
As we continue the quest to grow our league, we ask for your help. There will be endless opportunities to be involved, so I would encourage you to do so where ever you can. Parent participation is key! Please start by spreading the word about our great organization to friends, other parents in schools, parents in other sports, local businesses, religious organizations, etc. As the season gets a little closer we will be providing flyers and yard signs to help spread the word. Be on the look out for that information to follow. If you would like to offer ideas about how we can grow our organization, please feel free to email me directly at
Registration is now open! You may have noticed there has been a slight increase in registration fees. The increase in fees will assist in covering the increased costs in areas such as fields, uniforms, league dues,Insurance,etc. Once again we are offering an early registration discount, so please register NOW!
Players camps will be held again this year. At this time, dates and locations are still being finalized. This info will be sent soon.
I encourage you to visit our website at www.slfootballclub.com for additional information and news. We will continue to keep you posted with information about the league and upcoming season, as it becomes available.
I hope you all join me in the excitement and anticipation of the 2015 football season.
