Future Stars play only in Evanston at ETHS or Foster Field at practice on Saturdays.

PARENTS MEETING(S) - I know many of you have lots of questions and concerns
and I want to get those answered before we put pads on in Aug. I will have the first meeting at practice on Wed 27 Jul
at 7 PM and hope to be done by the end of practice ( might go a few minutes past) this will be at the field (weather permitting).
The second will be on Zoom on Wed 3 Aug at 8 PM (link will be emailed).
Also, I will be at practice early on Tuesday around 5 PM and answer questions until we get started and after we get the players going to warm up. If you have concerns about registration or payments or anything,  come talk to me and we will get it handled. We have ever turned a player away because of money.


OUR LEAGUE - Last season we joined the TCYFL. This is a much larger league and it has a variety of playing
levels. You can see the leagues website at Last season we had teams at Varsity, JV, Middleweight and Featherweight.
Future Stars does not play in this league and is an instructional level.

OUR COACHES -  All of our coaches must pass a background check and are USA Football certified and PCA (Positive Coaching Alliance) certified as well. We are a Heads-Up certified program for more than 10 years. We have an all volunteer staff no coaches or staff are paid. We are always looking for new coaches Female or Male. If you are interested let me or Coach McKinney (he is the head of Football Operations and in charge of the coaches) know. If you have an issue with a Coach talk to Coach McKinney first then if he will bring the issue to me if needed.

PLAYING TIME - All players who practice and turn in their grade sheets are guaranteed playing time. Usually one quarter (about 10 plays) or more. We will do our best to put your player in the best position to succeed. If you have questions about playing time and the positions they are playing talk to your coach. We ask that you do this before or after practice. During the game players and coaches can get very emotional and we ask you to let us coach the game and give us a few minutes after the game to collect ourselves. .

PARENTS & FAN CONDUCT - We want everyone to come and cheer loudly for the Jr. Wildkits. We want it to be positive. Yelling at refs, opposing players or parents and our staff will not be tolerated. Only players and certified coaches are allowed on the sidelines during games. Some of the places we play are not in stadiums and families are very close to the field. Please let us coach  and refrain from talking to your players and do not go on the field for any reason.

MISC - If you have multiple households make sure we get an email so everyone can stay in the loop. also, if you have extended family you want to add just let us know.

-Scholarships can be requested by emailing or talking to Coach Himrod.

-We have a lot of volunteer opportunities for teens and adults. More info will be provided at parents meetings

-We have a few T-Shirts left from our Football Family Fun day. We will be selling them at practice for $15 until they run out. Most are youth sizes, but we have few large left. this was a great day and raised a lot of money and we had a lot of fun.

PICK-UP & DROP-OFF - We will start practice on time and finish on time. Please respect our time as we respect your time.
You can drop off and pick up your players on Simpson St., Dewey in Cul-de sac, Family Focus Parking lot, Foster St. Please do not use Ashland (East side of the Field) as the City has asked us not to use it.
We will not leave until all players are picked up or have walked home.
