The Medford Indians MYAA Football and Cheer programs are holding an open house on May 7th at the Pinelands Sports Center in Southampton NJ. The event provides parents an opportunity to learn about our programs in an informal setting while their children, ages 5-14, participate in free clinics. The clinics are designed to allow you and your child to experience first hand what our sports and coaches have to offer.
Parent Informational Sessions by:
- Paul Kasper – Director of Sports Medicine, Virtua Health Systems
- Tim Gushue – Head Coach, Shawnee High School Football
- Bill Rieger – Commissioner, Medford Indians MYAA Football
- Angie Paschell – Commissioner, Medford Indians Cheerleading
- Coaches from Medford Indians Football and Cheer
Representatives, coaches and parents from the cheer and football programs, as well as current and past players and cheerleaders will be on hand to discuss our programs and answer parent's questions. Parents of future football players will also have the opportunity to learn about the modern, progressive methods of coaching football including certification programs through Virtua Health and USA Football that have changed the game and made it safer. Our focus is on player safety, a focus that is unparalleled in any other local sports program.
Both our football and cheer programs provide a safe and positive experience that develops lifelong skills including leadership, teamwork, discipline and encourages social interaction by both children and parents. Our goal is not to produce good players and cheerleaders but great young men and women.
