Good day football fans the 2014 sesaon begins in exactly 2 days . The executive of NRMFA will be working on a very extensive and challenging agenda for the upcoming season. The first order of business will be the election of a new President as I will be stepping down this Tuesday opening the way for a new regime that will focus on the development of NRMFA as the go to football league for youth in the Niagara Region. I’m sure you will all give the new Sr. executive the support and assistance that you provided the out going volenteers . Over the next few weeks information regarding Winter camps and 2014 registrations will be posted here on our web site .
As this is my last posting I would like to take this opportunity to thank-all of you for your particiapation in NRMFA.
“Lets Play Some FOOTBALL” John Fisher
On behalf of NRMFA ,NIAGARA GENERALS and the Niagara Spears I wish to thank all the dedicated volunteers who put on such a fantastic fundraiser last night . A special thank-you to Andrea ,Carrie, Missy and Tina you ladies did a fantastic job
Good day NRMFA members I hope you have had an enjoyable summer of Football and are looking forward to a more relaxed fall. We on the executive have worked diligently all summer to bring you an exciting season and a Super Sunday extravaganza that was second to none .
As in any volunteer endeavor we faced challenges that were sometimes easy to overcome and sometimes not so easy , saying that I would happily put our executive and organization up against all comers.
No sports organization can maintain status quo and hope to be successful for the long term, we at NRMFA understand this and that is why we forged a strong partnership with the Generals and the Spears . This partnership will benefit all Football players in the region ,since the Niagara Region as a whole is one of the strongest areas for football in Ontario . The benefits for football in the region will feel the impact of this partnership for years to come.
Events that happen behind the scenes but affect the players safety and enjoyment of the game continued to occur on an ongoing basis, we recertified a large number of helmets this year at a cost of roughly $27,000.00 , a program that we will continue to enforce for your sons/ daughters safety. Our coaching clinic was a resounding success as we highlighted first-aid , concussions ,tackling techniques and rule changes just to mention a few items on our agenda. I would also like to mention that our reporting of scores , information and pictures from games rivals TSN and ESPN in speed and efficiency , Ed Telenko and Nicole Crawford deserve a big round of applause for their efforts . The two big fundraisers Trivia Night ( completed) and the Casino Night Costume party(yet to occur so buy your tickets soon) have been and will be the major events of anyones social calendar, these two evenings are being spearheaded by Andrea Szyjka our fundraising director who has been working diligently to pull off these great experiences.
So you don’t go into Football withdrawal we will be running two camps this year starting in January 2014 , information regarding registration dates and costs will be posted this month.
I could easily talk endlessly about how great NRMFA is but you know that already or you wouldn’t be involved . We continue to need volunteers to help with just about everything so don’t be afraid to step up and help out whenever and wherever you can .
On a more organizational note I will be stepping down at the end of this year , my role will be more of a sounding board for the new president who I’m sure will put forth every effort to bring new and interesting insights to the position.
GOOD DAY EVERYONE If you still have NRMFA equipment to return please do so asap the warehouse is open to accept returns Tuesday nights from 6:30pm til 7:30pm . That is the only time staff is there , please do not get coaches involved deposits will not be issued to coaches
