“There is only one way to succeed in anything, and that is to give it everything” —Vince Lombardi Joe Vasquez started his football career with the Carol Stream Youth Football Association when he was only 5 years old. Working his way up through the program, Joe faced many challenges – for those of you with a son that is a stripper, you know the constant struggle. Joe has never let those circumstances stop him. Joe has played on the varsity team at Glenbard North since his sophomore year. Last year as a Junior, he was named First Team All-Conference, and All-Area for DuPage Valley Conference. Joe was also part of the Glenbard North varsity team that made it to the second round of the IHSA Class 7A playoffs in November of last year. In a write up about Joe, Dave Oberhelman of the Daily Herald stated that “His athleticism and his football IQ made him an expert at pulling down the line on trap plays and sweeps”. During a two-part process that began last year at USA Football Camp, Joe was selected to play for Team USA. He took part in intense training sessions that occupied him from morning till night. Earlier this year, Joe was chosen to be a part of the United States Under – 17 National Team that beat Japan (44 – 7) in the eight International Bowl. The game took place at the AT&T Stadium – home to the Dallas Cowboys. A dream come true for him. Joe accredits his success to the support of his family, friends, and the Carol Stream Youth Football Association Panthers. Colleges that have shown interest in Joe are Northwestern, Kansas State, Miami of Ohio, and South Dakota State. Joe is proof that if you give it your all, you will succeed. Picture of Joe will be in the Photo Albums section of the website. If there are any Past Panthers that would like to note some positive outcomes in life that can be attributed to their experiences with the Carol Stream Youth Football program please email to teddost@yahoo.com.

"Confidence doesn't come out of nowhere. It's a result of something...hours and days and weeks and years of constant work and dedication" - Roger Staubach Over the next two weeks, we'd like to take the opportunity to highlight a couple of our own. These boys have started their football journey with the Carol Stream Youth Football Association. Committing themselves to hours of "constant work and dedication" their football careers are taking them to the next level. They are PANTHERS. DANIEL BERRY first played with the CSYFA in the 6th grade. During the 8th grade, his coaches recommended him to the USA Football's regional camp which took place last year. Daniel not only worked with the elite high school coaches, he also worked with college coaches on technique and fundamentals. Because of his performance at the regional camp, he was invited to play offensive line at USA Football's developmental games in Canton, OH. The camp took place over 5 days, and included players from all over the country. Based on his performance there, coaches then invited Daniel to the USA Football's U14 National Team. Daniel was able to play as part of the USA Football's International Bowl which took place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX. The pace and intensity of the practices and games were at college level. The opportunity to play against the Japan Team has been a highlight of Daniel;s football career thus far. His Mom, Linda Berry, believes that CSYFA has provided Daniel with confidence, skills, and qualities that led to his selection to the USA Football's Team. Up next week......JOE VAZQUEZ. If you have a Panther player you'd like for us to highlight please send us their story. It gives kids an opportunity to read about players like themselves, and to show that hard work really does pay off. Also note as the website is a little tricky I am still working to get pictures of these players posted, please be patient.

CSYFA Important Dates Coming Up!!

by Carol Stream Youth Football Association, 2019-07-13T06:49:44.000-07:00July 13 2019, at 06:49 AM PDT

Hello All Panther Families,

Hopefully by now all parents have received your welcome letters and current team assignments. We are now at that time of year that all Panther’s love to hear “Football Time”. Below we have some very important information and dates for the Start of this year’s Panther Football season. Look forward to seeing all the kids and families come out and enjoy some great team sports with the usual Panther Fan energy. First a big thanks to all the kids who have signed up and to the Parent’s for keeping the CSYFA strong. We appreciate all the coaches/assistant coaches who are volunteering their time to make sure all the kids play the game safe, and also bring the fun that keeps this team sport alive.

Now on to the dates.

VERY IMPORTANT TO ATTEND THIS YEAR***Next Sunday (July 21) Equipment Handout at Rockin’ Jump (Sponsor) Carol Steam from 9:30am to 12:30pm. Address is 485 Mission Street. During this event, every registered 2019 football player will be able to jump for FREE for 1 hour. Non-registered siblings get a 50% discount off their jump fee so they can join the fun.

On this day, your TACKLE/FLAG football player(s) will receive the necessary equipment and GET FITTED FOR THER JERSEY for their use during the 2019 season. Along with equipment, we will be issuing our MANDATORY $100 fundraiser per player “Charity Mania” game cards, to all CSYFA registrants.

In order for your player to receive their equipment and Charity Mania game cards, at Equipment Handout, CSYFA requires (2) separate checks for the following:

1. A TACKLE equipment deposit check in the amount of $150, made payable to “CSYFA”, per player. This check will not be cashed as long as the equipment is returned to the organization in the same condition it was received.

NOTE: A deposit check is NOT required for Flag.

2. A separate check, in the amount $100, made payable to “CSYFA”, to cover your (5) Charity Mania game cards per player. As you sell your 5 tickets, you will then keep the money to recoup your $100.

• Please have checks already filled out to “CSYFA”. *

CSYFA will NOT issue equipment and/or Charity Mania game cards to anyone that has an outstanding balance on their 2019 registration and/or if the above-mentioned (2) checks are not received at this July 21st event. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!

There are other items that you must purchase for your player before the season start. Those items are as follows: black football pants, compression shirt/rib guard, football cleats, cup and mouth guard. This information is in Documents Section on the CSYFA website under FAQ.
CSYFA requires a birth certificate from ANY Flag or Tackle player that is NEW to CSYFA or that has played in CSYFA in the past, but did NOT play football in the 2018 season.

We are requesting that you turn in a COPY of your player’s birth certificate to Chris Sokolowski, at Equipment Handout.

Monday (July 22 thru Wednesday July 24) Agility Camp at Glenbard North High School Football Field from 6:30pm – 8pm. This camp is hosted by GBN Coaches and Players. It is free, and open to all youth. Please feel free to bring a friend. This would not be possible without the support of Glenbard North Football Coaches and Players.

Practices start Monday (July 29) at Red Hawk Park on North Ave. at 6:00pm. CSYFA parents are allowed to park in the Wayne Township parking lot off North Avenue Please do not block any entrances or garages or park on the grass, or we may lose the privilege of parking in this lot. If there are no parking spaces you will need to park in the Red Hawk South Parking Lot (off of St. Charles). There currently is construction going on which may cause limited parking.
