GREEN BAY PACKERS OFFER YOUTH FOOTBALL COACHING SCHOOL SUNDAY, MAY 31
Youth Football Coaches Invited to Attend Complimentary Clinic
The Green Bay Packers are set to host the team’s second annual “Green Bay Packers Coaching School” at Lambeau Field on Sunday, May 31 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The complimentary coaching school has a curriculum exclusively designed for youth football coaches, and can accommodate a maximum of 300 coaches. The event will feature innovative classroom sessions in the Lambeau Field Atrium, as well as on-the-field football instruction from top local high school and youth football coaches in the Don Hutson Center.
The one-day clinic offers coaches the opportunity to sharpen skills and learn new approaches to coaching football beyond just the X’s and O’s, including methods of teaching teamwork, responsibility and discipline. Youth football coaches also will be instructed in best communication practices toward players, parents and officials, with the intent to foster positive experiences for all involved with the sport.
Youth football organizations that register five or more coaches with one hundred percent attendance on the day of the event will be entered into a drawing to receive one of three $500 grants from the Green Bay Packers.
The deadline to register is May 25, or when a maximum capacity of 300 coaches has been reached. Only registered coaches will be granted admittance to the event. Those interested may register online at www.packers.com/youthfootball under “Green Bay Packers Coaching School.”

Online player registration opens February 1st and if you are registering a returning player, you will notice that much of the data entered from last season will be the default values populated on your registration forms for this upcoming season.
As you register your players, please be sure to review and to correct as necessary while paying particular attention to the following areas:
GRADE - This needs to be the grade they will be in NEXT school year (2015-16) and NOT that of the current school year. Players entering grades 3 - 7 are eligible for this program.
DATE OF BIRTH - As you enter this field, be sure to check for typos. We no longer require birth certificates as verification, so be sure to check this twice.
PLAYER WEIGHT - We recommend that the player be weighed at home when you register or that you use the result of a recent physical exam. This is important to determine whether a player is at risk being outside the weight eligibility requirements (minimum or maximum).
NEAREST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TO THE PLAYERS HOME (3rd, 4th, and 5th grade) - 3rd through 5th grade teams will continue to be formed as "neighborhood" teams using primary land marks (home address and closest elementary school).
HIGH SCHOOL WHERE THE PLAYER WILL ATTEND - In the 2015 season, we will form our 6th and 7th grade teams based on the high school that they are likely to attend. For younger, divisions this will be provide guidance when making team assignments but will not be the determining factor
A major objective of Fox Valley Pop Warner is to maintain the affordability of the program. This season will be no exception as the board has approved that the $75 player fee be maintained yet again for those who are registered by April 15. Late fees will apply for anyone registering after that date. This is the 12th straight season without an adjustment!
This could only happen through a combination of fundraising programs, generous grants & donations, and most of all through the hard work & dedication of our volunteers.
Please remember how important your volunteer hours are to the program when you register your player for the upcoming season and choose to be a volunteer. Registration opens February 1.
Thank you for all you do. Together we accomplish great things!
