Thanks again to all for their continued support to the second most important aspect of CSYFA volunteering (first always is the kids!).

For those parents who may have some concerns about kids safety and health we will be having CSYFA’s on field trainer company, Olympia Chiropractic & Physical Therapy, representative (Dr. Josh) coming to CSYFA’s March 11 Board Meeting. He will give a presentation on hydration, nutrition, and concussion safety that his team provides for all Panther Families.

Thanks again to all those parents who took the time to fill out the Parent Surveys. The survey site is now closed and we will reopen after the BGYFL season end this year.

Finally, CSYFA would encourage all Parent’s to check out www.csyfa.com. As we are non for profit organization we are doing our best to hold the line when it comes to registration rates.

If there are any companies that you all know would like to be a sponsor please have the company contact CSYFA. Also we do not want to exclude any kid from playing this great team sport so if there is some that have any financial issues please click on the Sponsorship “New” near the top of site (under the Panther Football) and you can find out ways that could help.

It is very important to make sure to remind everyone of our motto: “It’s all about the kids!”
