YOUNG THUNDERBIRD VOLUNTEER COMMITTEES

The Young Thunderbird Football Program is led by a group of seven dedicated Operating Committee members. These individuals are voting members and lead several sub-committees that help run the program. Because the tackle football program has such a wide range of duties and efforts to help our teams run smoothly, every tackle family is required to volunteer for one committee. Families can opt out of this requirement for a $30 donation. Descriptions of committees and contact information for committee chairs is below.

 

The Operating Committee meets monthly, please get with a committee member for dates and location. Committee meetings are open and all are welcome to attend!  The seven members of the Operating Committee are the only voting members, but comments and conversation on issues is always welcome.

COACHING COMMITTEE

The Coaching Committee helps ensure the quality of coaching for players in the Young Thunderbirds program. This can include recruiting new coaches, providing education opportunities to new coaches, and ensuring all coaches are certified through USA Football. No prior coaching experience is required, but volunteers must have a willingness to learn, ability to receive constructive feedback, and desire to increase their football knowledge to better serve our players.
