Welcome to My Rally Campaign
My name is Miguel Rivas I am a 10 year US Marine Veteran and former IFL Football Player with the West Michigan Thunderhawks. I have been coaching youth football for about 8 years. This year I decided to create my own organization in my area to offer more to the kids in the local community. So I created the SW Elite Ozark Wolverines travel football team. This team is combined of 6 year olds through 11 year olds with 3 different teams. We have a 7u, 9u and 11u team. We are working hard to build this into an organization that will teach football to newest way and follow USA Football Guidelines.
My goal is to train young athletes into great football players as well as great citizens and students as well. The goal is to have the kids be able to learn each and everyday not only about football but also about life lessons and team work.
Why I'm Raising Funds
The funds will be used for many different things such as tournament fee's, equipment fees, and also fees to help build our own football field and training facility for the kids to be able to work in when it is raining and snowing.
How I Got Here
My team has experience a lot of challenges in our short time. We have been moved all over the city and not allowed to practice in many areas just because we are not part of the Local Youth Program. However we continue to push and finally have approval to practice in a small section of the City Park.
I would like to thank my team Mom Tiffany Finch, Vice President Kevin Scheller and all my Coaches Shiran Jackson, Dominic Wells, Jordan Finch, and Brain Silifavia. I would also like to thanks the City of Waynesville Parks Director Randy Brown. I would also like to thank anyone that has donated money to the team already.
