As we look forward to the 2016 season, we ask for everyone to be part of the success of our franchise and make this a memorable season for our kids. Together we can make this the best one yet! What can you do? You can help us recruit new players and cheerleaders, find a sponsor to help offset our practice and game expenses, volunteer to help out for activities, volunteer to help coach, become part of our board to help make decisions affecting the franchise and making a positive impact on our kids. There are many ways you can help and no amount of time is too small!
DYFL representatives attended our board meeting last night and we were advised that DYFL is not changing the boundaries that were set forth earlier this year (we are able to recruit players and cheerleaders from the Sierra and Manteca High School Districts). If you have any questions, comments or concerns, you can contact Chris Wlodarczyk (our new Charger President) at 209-607-3371 or Jim Patterson (DYFL South VP) at 209-505-4980.
Below are the important dates that you should mark your calendars for. Specific details will be sent out as soon as they are finalized.
