News and Announcements

Panther Families,

Hope everyone of you had a great holiday weekend. CSYFA is very excited about the upcoming year as we get closer to Football season. We appreciate all those Panther Families that took advantage of the early registration rates prior to the April 15 date. Here are some upcoming dates:

We will have another chance for families to take advantage of registering for football at early registration rates (US$200.00 for Flag and US$300.00 for Tackle) as on CSYFA 2019 Sponsor Rockin Jump will be hosting a Registration Party on Friday May 3, 2019 from 6pm to 8pm. For those kids who register May 3 or are registered will get to jump for 1 hour FREE. If the kids want to jump more than 1 hour they are offering US$8.00 for an extra 30 minutes or US$10.00 for Unlimited jump until they close. If the kids who have registered want their siblings to jump they can jump for US$10.00 for 1 hour. Rockin Jump socks will be sold to all those that enter for US$2.00 per pair.

As we are a non-for-profit organization and are trying our best to keep registration rates at their current levels even though our costs for everything (practice lights, fields, jerseys, insurance, etc.) keep increasing we are looking not only for more sponsors this year but more ways to raise money for the organization. We are going to be looking for all Panther players to participate in a “Shake the Can” fundraiser at Carol Stream Jewel on Saturday May 11th from 10am – 2pm. We will be working with all the CSYFA coaches to have a team come to Jewel for 45 minutes to help raise money for CSYFA. Hopefully we can see some great participation from all the kids.

CSYFA is actively planning more fundraising events and are still looking for Sponsorship. If anyone needs any information about CSYFA sponsorship please visit www.csyfa.com.

Lastly our next monthly CSYFA Board Meeting will be held on Monday May 13 at 7pm at Simkus Rec Center. These meetings are open to all Panther Families.

Hope to see all the kids and Panther families at the upcoming events.

Hope everyone had a wonderful spring break. We at CSYFA have been busy working to get the kids set for a great upcoming season. Please remember early registration rates end APRIL 15. We have our upcoming March CSYFA Meeting on Monday, April 8th at 7pm at the Simkus Rec Center. It is open to all. For upcoming events and registration please visit www.csyfa.com. We will be discussing several upcoming events at the March meeting, so we hope to see you there. We also recommend that you check the CSYFA website regularly for updates.

We would like to welcome Pat Mercadante (Equipment Manager) and Nick Kramer (Coaches Liaison) to the CSYFA. We appreciate their volunteering to make the kids experience a positive one.

Also, we would like to welcome a new sponsor to CSYFA Rosati’s of Carol Stream/Geneva (https://myrosatis.com/carolstreamgeneva/).

We are always looking for new sponsors to help keep the costs for the kids where they are at. We also offer incentives if you bring a new sponsor to CSYFA. Check out the Sponsorship tab on CSYFA website for details on that. The actual Sponsorship form can be found under the Documents section of the website (lower left side).

Thanks again to all of the kids who have registered for the 2019 season.
