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 $25 donation. Descriptions of committees and contact information for committee chairs is below.

 

The next Operating Committee Meeting will be held Wednesday, August 3rd at 6:30pm in the meeting room at Thunderbirds Grill. Meetings are open and all are welcome to attend!

COACHING COMMITTEE

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.
