What can I do to help my child be a better player?
The most important aspect of being a parent or guardian of a player is to show your support each and every time they play or practice. A simple pat on the back and words of encouragement go a long way to help a child improve. Be supportive at all times!

How to I present parent and player concerns and kudos to the organization?
If you have an issue that needs to be addressed or would like to give constructive or positive feedback, please speak w/your coach first. If that is not an option or does not resolve the issue, please see our PAC (Parent Advisory Committee) Chairperson, Mr. Robert Kimmel. His contact information can found under the “Contacts” tab. Mr. Kimmel will listen to all disputes and advise on a course of action. If the course of action is unacceptable to the parties involved he will bring the issue to the PFE Board. Please make every attempt to use this process if the need arises.
What are personal conduct forms?
All parents, players, and coaches must sign personal conduct forms. The personal conduct forms outlines and reminds of proper behavior at youth sporting events. We expect all concerned – including our invited guests - to act accordingly. If you cannot act in accordance with our policy, you will be asked to leave the game/practice/event area immediately. If necessary, we will contact law enforcement agencies.
So it’s game day … now what?
Your Head Coach will specify a time that he will want children at the game site prior to a game. Typically it is one hour prior to the start of your scheduled game. During this time, each coach is required to ensure children have proper equipment and provide player cards for the opposing coach. Warm-ups and pre-game activities also take place during this time. Please make every effort to respect the coaches and players by being on-time. Players should bring all football equipment with them.
Additionally this is your child’s time to shine!!! Please cheer your children on! Be loud, be proud! But above all, be respectful.
