SUMMER CAMPS & ACTIVITIES

Ida B. Wells High School Youth Football Camp
July 31st-August 3rd, 6-8 pm. 

Join the Ida B. Wells High School players and coaches for a youth football camp on July 31st-August 3rd, 6-8 pm, Ida B. Wells High School.  This is a great way for everyone to meet your teammates, begin learning football fundamentals, plays, and drills.  Camp fees are $75 and support the high school program.  Registration will be forthcoming.  Wear athletic clothing and your cleats if you have them.  No other equipment is needed. 

What is this thing called 3/4 Rookie Tackle?
Rookie  Tackle” is a “bridge-game” between flag and 11 player tackle that creates a best – practice pathway that allows young players to get a feel for the great game of football by playing a number of different positions in every game, two point stances, no “special teams”, and with coaches on the field helping to instruct, inform and encourage each player.  Each player still wears all the normal protective gear as any other tackle football player, the teams are smaller and the field size is shorter and narrower.  This allows for a safer game and better learning environment for all our players.  If you want more information please feel free to contact Michael Warren at commissioner@wellsfootball.com

WFF NEEDS YOUR HELP!

Wells Youth Football is only possible through volunteer support.  Working with the board is fun and rewarding.  We are currently seeking immediate help with:

  • Corporate & Personal Sponsorship recruitment committee.  Starting immediately these two individuals will spend a couple hours a week helping us recruit sponsors for our media guide and sideline banners. 
  • HS & Youth Volunteer Coordinator  - Starting in July we need two people to coordinate our volunteers for our program.  We have learned that  it is best to have two people, one for our HS branch and one for the Youth branch.  We have a lot of the process's in place already.  These individuals will continue this great involvement. 

We are seeking your help on the WFF Board.  If you are willing to help please contact us ASAP.
