Peewees won the Tier 4 Championship
Bantams were featured at the Grey Cup Festival in Flag Football
Peewees & Bantams were invited to the CFL Grey Cup Camp where they trained with CFL athletes, Coaches & got close and personal to the Grey Cup!
We provide educational opportunities and funds to our Coaches. They've attended Glazier Coaching Clinics in Phoenix, local clinics & continue to develop their skills, just as we develop those of our Players.
Although we want to win, we believe that it's more important for our Players to EARN their game time. In our organization, we reward attendance, work ethic and attitude. With a focus on those attributes, improvement, skill and winning will happen.
It's amazing to be a Raider!

WHY DO KIDS QUIT SPORTS?
70% of children quit youth sport by the age of 13.
What is not as widely known is the reason why they quit. The scary part is that many of the things well-intentioned parents and coaches do for their athletes are thing they believe are helping, but in reality, they are some of the biggest contributors to the high drop out rate!
THE NUMBER 1 REASON WHY THEY QUIT IS THAT IT STOPS BEING FUN!
WHAT KIDS WANT ARE:
1. RESPECT AND ENCOURAGEMENT
2. POSITIVE ROLE MODEL
3. CLEAR, CONSISTENT COMMUNICATION
4. KNOWLEDGE OF SPORT
