The Sponsor Committee focuses on growing team sponsors to help financially support our organization. Funding goes towards overall program costs, and also helps funds scholarships for athletes unable to afford program fees, equipment, or uniforms.

The Coaching Committee recruits new coaches for the program, provides education to new coaches, ensures all coaches are certified through USA Football, obtain background checks, and works with local and national experts to increase the quality of coaching for players in the Young Thunderbirds program. No prior coaching experience is required, but coaches must have a willingness to learn, receive feedback, and work to increase their knowledge to better serve our players.
