The challenge was to give Athletes, Parents, Volunteers a sample of AYF in a short three day span. The solution we all said would be to provide segments of AYF's pillars (Safety, Participation, Sportsmanship, and Academics) that support and strengthen communities. AYF's exemplary adults aim way beyond just sports competition by insisting youth complete the circle of giving back.
The AYF Experience season kicked off in Phoenix, Arizona. This event indeed promised a new year of AYF bonding. A big thanks to Dee Grayer, James McKinnery, Lou Montanaro, Mike Denney, Dave Pumell, Lt. Bryant Sewell, Don Carabiner, Epic Cheer, NFL Pros Matt Wilhelm, and Will Sullivan. Friday night was Meet and Greet and Classroom presentatios for Parents on College Recruiting and High School Readiness. The on field and gym activities Saturday featured great instruction from the best Football and Cheer Coaches. The Sunday Leadership Meeting on AYF Planning Volunteering completed the fast paced AYF Experience which promised 2014 to be the best year ever.
