CSYFA September Newsletter

by Carol Stream Youth Football Association, 2019-09-05T09:33:35.000-07:00September 05 2019, at 09:33 AM PDT

Welcome to September, Panthers!

We hope everyone has been able to see the kids practice and play football. We are going into Week 3 of our regular season games. The kids are all getting their game faces on every weekend and are being cheered on by the BEST cheerleaders around. The positive encouragement from all the fans has really made for a great environment for all the players and coaches. We have tried to keep the great experiences the teams have experiencing updated on the CSYFA Facebook page (Carol Stream Panthers Football). We are trying to use the Facebook page weekly to inform everyone about all the CSYFA (home and away) games for all levels and will continue to use Facebook as another form of communication.

The CSYFA Cares campaign that was mentioned in our last newsletter as seen some positive results. Thanks to the support of all the fans at our home games the Donation can was able to raise US$47.60 for ALS. For the month of September the donation can will be collecting money for Childhood Cancer which has affected a CSYFA family. All donations collected for the month of September at all CSYFA home games will go to Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

As we have now started the football season, the main source of revenue for CSYFA moving forward is our concessions. As many of us in the CSYFA organization are donating our time throughout the season, it is very important that we get volunteer support for concessions. The schedule that was given to team moms is what is needed to avoid no coverage situations. If we do not get the help needed during all home games, we could be forced to the concession stand. Once again, any revenue gained at this time of year is going to hopefully keep our registration prices at the levels they have been for many years. CSYFA has looked at all options and the volunteer strategy is what gives CSYFA the best option to generate revenue. As you are all are, CSYFA is a non-for-profit organization and we need our CSYFA families to volunteer to help. So please keep this in mind when your Team Mom reaches out for Concessions volunteers.

The parking lot construction at Red Hawk is about to go full swing so please follow any detour arrangements that the Wayne Township Office puts in place. In discussions with them they are to do the parking lot in 2 phases starting on the East Side and moving to West Side of the parking lot. There will be different traffic patterns where as you could be using only 1 entrance/exit to enter and exit so please pay close attention. As the construction proceeds the Wayne Parking lights will continue to not be working as that will be completed near the end of the project. It is very important that parents pick up their kids at the end of practice and use extreme caution driving through the parking lot as many kids are coming off the fields.

Lastly, as we have been blessed for the most part with weather so far this year for the games and most practices the temperatures will be changing. Please make sure your children are being sent with proper attire for the weather.

We look forward to giving the kids a great team environment to enjoy the game of football safely. As always, thank you for your continued support.

GO PANTHERS!!!

“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.
