Casper Midget Football Association registration for the Fall 2022 season is underway! This program is not just about learning the game of football for fifth and sixth grade athletes. It’s about sportsmanship, having fun and building self-esteem. With every new sport for young athletes, there’s nothing more rewarding than learning new skills alongside a team of friends. When looking for something to get your child excited, consider these five reasons to get into the game:
1. All About Pleasure
Above all else, CMFA’s volunteer coaches are dedicated to making sure every child has fun while learning the game of football. As a team sport, every child, regardless of ability, will participate in games. Not a single kid is left on the bench because coaches believe the best way to improve and have fun is to PLAY. Learning skills, practicing drills and running with friends will have your child looking forward to football night. Bonus: it’s also fun for parents. Getting in the game with other parents and watching your child’s team grow and play will make football night as exciting for you as it is for them.
2. Build character
Sportsmanship, teamwork and respect learned on the field are traits that CMFA children will carry with them throughout their lives. By learning football, players learn pride and self-esteem. Seeing improvements in their skills and abilities lets players learn that they can do anything they want. CMFA players also learn the value of teamwork, as all players are rewarded equally as a team, not as individuals. While the team’s success is their success, winning isn’t everything. It’s about learning values and working hard to be a good player and a good person.
3. Learning skills
The best part of Casper Midget Football is that anyone can play. Young fifth and sixth grade athletes of all levels are welcome. During soccer practice, players learn a variety of skills from throwing a soccer ball to coordination and strategy. All of these skills can be applied to other sports and activities as these young athletes grow.
4. A strong sports history in Casper
For more than 50 years, the CMFA has introduced football to generations of children. Since 1969, approximately 15,000 children have been introduced to and participated in the game. As a volunteer, non-profit organization, it’s safe to say that every coach has their heart in the game and their dedication to the players on the pitch. .
5. Safety first
The CMFA takes pride in its program, especially its safety practices and standards. Since its inception in 1969, only a few minor injuries have occurred. Safety comes first, which is why the program invests in the best equipment available, emphasizes physical fitness and provides the highest quality coaching. Additionally, the CMFA partners with USA Football to teach and utilize the “Heads Up Football Program,” which promotes proper head positioning to help prevent concussions.
These are just five reasons to get into the game, but once you hit the court there are so many more that will keep you and your young athlete coming back every season. Casper Midget Football is a great program to start building the foundation of sport, teamwork, and values that your child can carry throughout their life.
