Kissimmee, Fla. (March 20, 2018) – The Kissimmee Sports Commission and American Youth Football, Inc. have signed a five-year partnership agreement for the annual American Youth Football & Cheer Championships to continue being hosted in Osceola County through 2022. This event generates nearly $8 million in direct economic impact annually and brings 19,500 overnight visitors to the area each year.
American Youth Football, Inc. is an independent non-profit corporation that provides support services, grants, giving back programs, and tournament opportunities to over 25,000 youth football and cheer teams from all 50 states and internationally. The American Youth Football & Cheer National Championships has been hosted in Kissimmee since 2007.

“The AYF Championships is the culmination of our youth development program, which focuses on training, motivation, academics, and community involvement,” said Joe Galat, President and CEO of American Youth Football. “This is the world’s largest youth football event and an incredible accomplishment and opportunity for these kids. We’re
excited to keep bringing our teams and event to Kissimmee.”

The AYF cheerleading championships will continue to be hosted at Osceola Heritage Park, while the football championships will remain at the Austin Tindall Sports Complex, an outdoor sporting venue currently undergoing $10.7 million in renovations and expansion. This massive improvement project, funded by Osceola County, will benefit the American Youth Football Championships as the event and the AYF corporation continue to grow.

“We’re excited to continue our partnership with AYF for another five years,” said Jeff Kuenzli, Facility Director at Austin Tindall Sports Complex. “Our expanding footprint and ability to change our facility to meet our client’s needs makes Austin Tindall Sports Complex a perfect fit for this caliber of event.”

These facility accommodations, as well the overnight accommodations available in the destination played a substantial role in securing the extended partnership agreement.

“AYF brings a wide range of guests to the area each year, and Kissimmee is able to provide an equally diverse range of accommodations to fit every visitor’s preference,” said John Poole, Director of Kissimmee Sports Commission. “With over 50,000 accommodation options, plus the nearby theme parks and attractions, it’s an ideal destination for AYF participants and their families to enjoy the entire sports travel experience.”

Manchester East Cobras 10U National Champions

MEC Champions return home

Manchester East Cobras take National 10U Football Title with thrilling win over Texas

Members of the Manchester East Cobras celebrate after winning a national championship in Florida. (COURTESY)

When the Manchester East Cobras won the American Youth Football 10U Division II state championship earlier this season, coach Matt McDonald emphasized the team had not accomplished anything yet.

He delivered the same message after the Cobras defeated Hartford, Conn., 37-6, to win the regional title and qualify for the AYF’s eight-team national tournament.

When McDonald spoke to his players after the Cobras defeated the Garden Villa (Texas) Giants, 27-26, in the AYF Division II 10U All American national championship game Dec. 8 in Kissimmee, Fla., he gave a different speech.

“After that final game, we accomplished what we came out to do,” McDonald said. “We came down to Florida not to lose….I’m over ecstatic about what the kids were able to accomplish when they put their minds to it.”

The Cobras defeated the CYAA (Fla.) Wolverines, 32-19, in the national quarterfinals before downing the Maryland-based Showcase Sharks, 25-13, in the semifinals, becoming the first New Hampshire team to ever reach an AYF final, according to McDonald.

Manchester East trailed, 26-14, late in the first half of the final before scoring the game’s final two touchdowns and shutting out Garden Villa in the second half.

Shawn O’Neil ran in a 25-yard touchdown and caught a 35-yard TD pass from McDonald’s son, Aiden, in the championship game. Jayden Pares scored the game-winning point when he ran into the end zone from three yards out on the point-after play following Chase Burris’ 15-yard TD run.

In the AYF 10U league, a point-after kick is worth two points and a point-after score on a pass or run is worth one point.

McDonald said his team was outmanned and outgunned in each of its three national-tournament games but it did have the edge in one area.

“They were faster, bigger, stronger but what separated us from them was we were by far the most mentally tough team and we had the most heart of any of the teams,” McDonald said. “We wear teams down mentally and as soon as the mind goes, the body follows soon after that.”

The Cobras finished with a 14-1 overall record and were never scored on in the second half in any of those 15 contests.

McDonald said he believes Manchester East would not have accomplished what it did this season without suffering its lone loss of the season — a 19-6 setback in Week 4 to the Pelham Razorbacks. After the defeat, the Cobras refocused and practiced harder, McDonald said, which paid off when they defeated Pelham, 19-12, to win the state title.

“If it wasn’t for that loss, we wouldn’t be here,” McDonald said.

McDonald said he was in disbelief after the title game ended and he realized what the Cobras had achieved. The moment he celebrated the victory with Aiden is something McDonald will always remember.

“I really try my best to separate the father-son aspect when it comes to coaching,” McDonald said. “To share that with him after the fact and have that father-son moment, it was unbelievable. It’s something we’ll never forget.”

McDonald said Aiden and his teammates — O’Neil, Pares, Burris, Aidan Calden, Treyvon Cannon Bennett, Steven Flatthery Jr., George Whitehead III, Michael Landmesser, Cayden Salvi, Liam Corman, Elijah Ellis, Xavier Whitehead, Ajow Luwal, Jaythean Obando, Matthew Koenig, Jhystoni Riviera, Jonathan Saldi, Nathan Saldi and Grace Chantasiri — had smiles on their faces long after the game ended.

Now that the 27-hour car ride back home from Florida and the celebration with family and friends is over, McDonald said his players are already thinking about next season.

“They have short-term memories,” McDonald said. “They’re wise beyond their years, that’s for sure.”

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.
