On Monday, September 11th the NHYFSC convened a meeting with the coaches nominated for the position of Head Coach of the 2017 NHYFSC 14U/8th Grade Conference All-Star team. At this meeting the expectations of the position were reviewed.

 

We are proud to announce John McDonald of the Salem Rams was selected as the Head Coach of the 2017 NHYFSC 14U/8th Grade Conference All-Star Team.

 

In the upcoming weeks John will reach out to coaches within the NHYFSC membership to fill the assistant coach positions.

Elite D14 Head Coaches selected

AYC Championship Bow

NHYFSC is proud to introduce the head coaches of the NH Elite teams.

Red Elite - Stephanie Karg of the Hudson-Litchfield Bears

Blue Elite - Nicole Quinn of the Salem Rams

Both teams will have a fantastic support staff of coaches assisting them this year.

Tryout information:

Athletes will be judged on dance, jumps, running and standing tumbling, and of course stunting!

 

The following link is for the dance that the athletes need to learn for tryouts. The girl performing is not an athlete trying out, she is a junior demonstrator, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FHRsWdUPmQ&feature=youtu.be to ensure all athletes are doing it the same, the beginning clap is over the left shoulder, followed by stepping forward with the right leg. 

 

Here is the jump sequence all athletes will be asked to perform. The girl performing the jumps is not an athlete trying out.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=ZVQ2-F1JTFU&app=desktop please notice the approach and arm placement, this is what we are looking for regardless of how your home team approaches jumps. The order is right, toe, left. The straight leg is what determines "right" or "left"

 

The first night of tryouts is Friday September 15th at Londonderry Middle school, 313 Mammoth Road, Londonderry, from 5:30 - 9:30 PM. Athletes must attend this tryout in order to advance to Saturday. We do expect some athletes to be cut Friday that won't need to attend Saturday. They will either be informed in person Friday or by email Friday night. 

 

Athletes should wear proper fitting shorts and shirt, as well as their cheer shoes. Please avoid dressing like twins with another athlete. Athletes should bring water and a healthy snack.

 

Parents, family members, cheer coordinators, and non Elite coaches are not allowed to stay at Londonderry Middle  school during tryouts, the Elite athletes Elite coaches, judges, and state board members are the only ones staying on site. We appreciate your cooperation with this as we don't want to jeopardize Londonderry Wildcats practice space. There are many local restaurants in the area if you want to stay close. We ask that you come in to drop off your athlete and verify the phone number you can be reached at during tryouts. Please be quick with the drop off as we have 90 athletes to check in!

 

Athletes that make it to day 2 will attend on Saturday September 16th at Woodbury middle school,  206 Main Street, Salem NH 9 AM - noon. Some athletes might be asked to show up at 10 - noon. This will be communicated in person Friday or by email Friday night. There is a cafeteria where parents can wait if they choose, any children with you need to be well supervised.

 

There will be a parent/athlete meeting on Saturday at 11:45 AM for both the red and the blue team. 

 

Both red and blue teams have choreography on Sunday 9/24. 9 AM - 3 for blue and 9 AM - 4 PM for red. This is mandatory for anyone that makes the team. Your coach will let you know what they want them to wear to this.

Concussion Safety Awareness and Fact Sheet

The NHYFSC takes Concussions very seriously. Through constant training for our administrators and coaches we feel this will help individuals identify the signs of a concussion.

What is a Concussion? A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury. Concussions are caused by a bump or blow to the head. Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious. You can’t see a concussion. Signs and symptoms of concussion can show up right after the injury or may not appear or be noticed until days or weeks after the injury. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion, or if you notice the symptoms yourself, seek medical attention right away. 

Please click here to download a copy of the CDC Head's Up Concussion Fact Sheet for Parents.

The more administrators, coaches, parents and athletes know about a concussion the better we will be able to keep our children safe.

Let's have a safe and exciting 2017 season.

Heat & Humidity Precautions

HEAT & HUMIDITY CONDITIONS

The NHYFSC advises all associations and parents to take heat and humidity matters into consideration before and at all practices. Associations should be advising all participants on the importance of hydrating before practices and to insure participants are bringing ample amounts of water to practice.

Dehydration and heat exhaustion can cause serious medical issues.  Proper planning will minimize discomfort and avoid serious medical issues.

 

Download the Heat Exhaustion form Signs, Symptoms and Preventive Tips.

 

EASTERN EQUINE ENCEPHALITIS

The NHYFSC advises all associations of potential medical hazards from mosquitoes.  All parents should take responsibility to avoid mosquitoes by using mosquitoes repellant on their child prior to practice beginning.
