On behalf of the players, parents and coaches for the Orléans Minor Football Association, I would like opportunity to introduce our non-profit club and request your support. Our club has been serving the youth of our community for since 1973 years producing many great athletes and leaders over four decades. Our organization is comprised of local boys and girls ages 6 – 18 years of age playing both flag and tackle football programs as well as many sports camps and events throughout the year. All of our Bengals and Raftsmen strive to be their best, look to improve their overall skills and show intensity and hustle in their training and games. They are dedicated to both their individual improvement and the development of the team and consistently demonstrate a high-level of focus and enthusiasm, all while balancing other aspects of their lives. Most importantly football teaches them to be role models both on and off the field, overcoming adversity through hard work that translates into a great life lesson.
The only stable funding for our organization is generated though membership fees paid by the families of our players. Our club is perennially challenged and determined to keep football experience accessible and affordable to kids from every demographic. To enable the full complement of a competitive program including pre-season training, uniforms, maintenance of safe equipment we rely heavily on our community. The actual cost per player to participate would be difficult for families with more than one child in competitive sports and/or modest means. In order to continue to make this rewarding experience a reality for our players, we are reaching out and offering the opportunity to help by becoming a sponsor of the 2019 Orléans Bengals.
