Prepare Early For the End of the Season Celebration

It is never too early to plan for the year end party for your youth football team. The Team Mom should be able to help you make the arrangements. I have had parties that have been as simple as a pizza party and as formal as a banquet. It is best to get a read on the team (especially the parents) before you decide how fancy the party will be. The age of the team will also help in your decision.

The one main tip I can give you is to make sure the Team Mom collects the entire amount of money that the party will cost in advance of the event. Make sure all siblings, parents, grandparents and friends are accounted and paid for. Too many times I have seen the party end and someone (me) winds up settling the bill for quite a bit more than was collected.

I also try to see if there is a local place where some of the other youth football teams use annually. Another option is if any of the parents own or have a contact with a restaurant.

The main thing is you want to make sure there is enough room for all who attend.

As fare as the youth football banquetufabet สมัครผ่านมือถือ goes we usually start with the meal. When all have finished eating I start the festivities. If you have a parent who likes to video tape or take a lot of pictures and is good with a computer you might be able to have them put together a slide show. I have done this a few times and it is a blast. This is optional and very time consuming but if you decide to have it done make sure you get a lot of help and work on it all year.

The next thing I do is give a small recap on the team. I make sure all is positive. This is the end of the year so there’s no reason to anger anyone.

Next I hand out the individual youth football player awards. You will need to check with your league on what kind of medals or trophies they will be providing. I have made it a long standing rule not to give out any special individual awards for MVP, Offensive Player of the Year or any other type. I usually split the names on the roster up among the coaches and have all of us take turns speaking about the kids. Please keep everything positive. Try to talk about something personal that the player did making his night extra special.

I am not a big fan of the year end party but I do make sure it is a great time for the kids who really love it.
