All Panther Fans,
The Panther kids have all started their practices this week and we see plenty of energy on the fields at Red Hawk. Thanks to all the Panther Families who made it out for the start up meetings with their respective levels. We have seen some great weather to start but it is due to start heating up so please remember to send your kids with plenty of water. Please continue to look to www.CSYFA.com for important upcoming dates. We will also be sending out broadcast emails from time to time with further information and the coaches will have information also.
Lastly we did receive another flyer from BGYFL sponsor “Dick’s Sporting Goods” which I have added to the Documents Section of www.CSYFA.com. For all those football items that your child needs that have come to light since practices has started here is a good opportunity this weekend (August 4 and 5) to save 20% at either Bloomingdale or Lombard Dick’s.
Once again glad to see so many returning families and welcome to the new families which have joined the Panther Organization. We look forward to safe and fun season where the great coaches of CSYFA all educate the kids on the aspects and fundamentals of the team sport of football.
Check out in the Video section CSYFA past player and Glenbard North’s and Northwestern’s Graduate and now NFL Player Justin Jackson.
