St Peter Saints CYO: Football



We will again be merging with St Jude's this fall for participation in their football program. Below is a letter from Brian Hoagland, St Jude's Football Commissioner, with the information you need to know for registration:

RE: CYO Football

Dear Parents of Fall 2014 3rd-8th graders:

Hopefully your son is planning on playing football for St. Jude this season. We are excited about the upcoming season for all of our teams and we look forward to increased participation from Lorain St. Anthony, Lorain St. Peter and North Ridgeville St. Peter; (St. Jude and St. Mary have been mainstays over the years). We want numerous teams at each level so the kids can all play a lot in the games.

After a 3 year hiatus, I will be coaching 7-8th grade again, and since I will be Football Commissioner too, there are several thing I need to get done before practices start.

1) I am in search of someone interested in helping with the equipment. Most of the distribution will be done before the practices start (see #3 below) so it won’t be too much work. We just had the helmets reconditioned and bought 30 new practice pants, 50 new girdles, 12 shoulder pads, 10 new 3-4th grade jerseys and several other items, so we are in great shape.

2) I need volunteers for team mothers to help with collecting the paperwork and organizing various things.

3) We will have 2 nights prior to practices where we will collect paperwork & money and pass out equipment. Those nights will be Wednesday & Thursday July 23rd and 24th from 6-8 at St. Jude Pavilion & gym. We need to collect the paperwork and money prior to passing out equipment. Practice starts August 1st.

4) We could still use more coaches for grades 3-5

You can go to for the Sign-up Form and the Physical Form.

Also, please put the above dates in your calendar and feel free to call or email me with any questions.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Brian Hoagland
Football Commissioner & 7-8th Grade coach
