We are happy to welcome all players and parents to the 2014 ELS Eagles Youth Football program. We are hopeful that this will be the most exciting and rewarding football season you've ever experienced. Our goal is to develop well-rounded young men who learn not only the fundamentals of football, but also the importance of education and teamwork, in an atmosphere conducive to developing sound mind, body and character - and having a good time along the way. We practice the ideals of sportsmanship and physical fitness. Our program stresses learning lessons of value far beyond the playing days, such as discipline, teamwork, concentration, friendship, leadership, and, sportsmanship. We, as coaches, will do our very best to ensure that each player is utilized to his utmost potential and their talents are used for the team's best advantage. Safety is our top concern. Many of the exercises, drills, and team rules are there to ensure your child is physically and mentally fit for football. Each child is unique and will develop at his own pace. We will exercise their bodies and minds in an effort to develop the skills needed to execute the game of football.
