(Cushing, Okla.) — Football season is just around the corner and we are already starting sign-ups for Red Dirt Football!
Let me tell you little about the program. Triple A Afterschool is a parent led organization. Safety is our number one concern. Red Dirt Football is a heads up football league. All coaches are required to be certified through the league and to attend safety meetings and clinic in June. Triple A Football is committed to providing the best helmets available for our youth. We use 5 Star rated Xenith Helmets which retail for around $200. Cushing Youth Football program begins with conditioning in July. August 1 is the first day for practice in pads. We provide helmets, shoulder pads, and insurance. Jerseys are paid for through our mandatory fundraiser.
Volunteering could be working a shift at the gate, concessions, working on the Christmas Parade float, Swim Party, serving on the board, or being a member of the team staff. If you volunteer and participate in the fundraiser the cost to sign up is $50. We know some of you may want to opt out of the fundraiser so it can be opted out of by choosing to pay $100 when asked in the sign up process. You are also required to sign up as a volunteer, this too can be opted out of with a $25 fee.
If you have any questions regarding this program call our Football director, Trenton Tucker 918-399-5109. If you would like a coaching position, fill out the application under volunteers. We are committed to finding the very best applicants and giving them the tools to be great coaches. We work together for a well rounded experience for both parents and athletes.
Just for some insight on how this program did last year, our 1st/2nd grade team brought home 1st place (gold). And the 4th/5th grade team brought home 2nd (silver). The other teams unfortunately didn’t place but all got a chance to learn and apply the fundamental of football and said the next year they were bringing home the gold.
To sign up parents can visit our website www.tripleaafterschool.com to sign up their children to play or for a coaching opportunity. We are looking forward to another great year!
