1. All players must be in the 8th grade only. Any player currently in the 8th grade and on the 8th grade roster may attend the open tryouts.
2. Player selection must afford the conference all-star coaching staff the ability to insure key positions such as quarterbacks, lineman, etc are on the team. To achieve this the coaching staff will recruit league wide by observing league games. When the all-star coaches visits a field on game day they should make contact with the association president and head coach of the 8th grade team.
3. Associations should understand that when nominating a player they need to consider how they will match up on the bigger picture. Being nominated to the team is not a statement that each player is equal in skill or football attitude.
4. On-line Registration does not confirm placement on the team.
1. All players will participate in a 2 day skill testing session as developed by the All-star coaching staff.
2. From the player skill testing a maximum of 30 players will be selected by the coaching staff. Players/Parents will be notified 48 hours from the final skill testing of their status. Players/parents will have 48 hours from the notification to confirm a place on the 2015 NHYFSC Conference All Star Team.
Once all the players are selected the NHYFSC will coordinate a meeting for the prospective players and parents to learn about the All-Star experience and requirements.
If you have any questions please contact the head coach

Londonderry Wildcat Gridder Collects Major New Hampshire Award
Folks who really know football will tell you that significant success in that intense and challenging game starts with the hard and often under-appreciated work “down in the trenches” on the offensive and defensive lines.
And many people who have succeeded in life often insist that hard work in the classroom, giving back to your community, and staying involved in causes in which you believe are all vital to being a well-rounded person and enjoying a fulfilling life.
Even though he’s still a very young person, Londonderry Middle School eighth grader Patrick Hagearty appears to have all of the proverbial bases covered. And that important fact was recently recognized by the New Hampshire Youth Football and Spirit Conference.
Hagearty, who played center on offense and nose tackle on defense for the Londonderry Wildcats’ eighth grade team this past autumn, was gleaned out of more than 4,000 boys and girls and chosen to receive the NHYFSC’s top academic scholarship on March 22.
The impressive award recognizes Hagearty’s outstanding academic achievements at the LMS, his community service work through Saint Jude’s Church, and his participation in Destination Imagination in which he and his team – the colorfully-named “Duck Tape Dudes” – have progressed to take part in global competition each of the last three years.
The NHYFSC Academic Achievement Award program began in 2005, and it acknowledges the academic success and community involvement of both football and spirit participants.
The NHYFSC’s hope is to encourage children to strive to do well in school and participate in their communities while also being an asset to their organization’s football or spirit programs.
In order to qualify, participants must have a grade average of 90 or higher and have entered the fifth grade or higher for the current season’s school year.
