Welcome to Derry, NH Demons Youth Football & Spirit serving Derry, Chester, Auburn, Candia & Hooksett NH ages 5-12 (can not turn 12 on or after 8/1) and Cheer grades 9-12.
STATUS OF THE 2020 SEASON
The Board has been in constant contact with the NH Youth Football and Spirit Conference (state league), whom has been in contact with the American Youth Football League (national league), and at this point we are moving forward with anticipating having a regular season. In the event that this changes, we will communicate this information to our membership immediately.
Registration for the 2020 season opened on March 1 and continues to be open; however, the Board of Directors have voted to amend registration requirements to be as follows:
1. Cheer and Tackle registration will remain at $175.00 (there will be no price increase after May 1)
2. Tiny Cheer and Flag Football will remain at $100 (no change)
3. There continues to be a monthly installment plan available via Sports Engine
4. There will be NO mandatory fundraising for any family this season
5. In the event that this season is canceled, any athlete who has already registered and paid will be issued a full refund
We understand that every family is affected by this pandemic differently. Our goal is to turn no athlete away who wants to play due to financial stressors. If you are willing to “sponsor” an athlete’s registration whose family may be in financial need due to the pandemic, please let us know. You can donate anonymously. If you are interested in helping an athlete in need, please send an Email to President Jim Sweetman at firstname.lastname@example.org
BOARD MEMBER RESIGNATION
The 2020 Cheerleading Coordinator, Debra McNeil, submitted her resignation to the President, which the Board accepted. There will be a Special Election to fill this open position (and open Volunteer Coordinator Position) at the general membership meeting in May. A separate Email from the Secretary of the Board will come out with specifics on the election process.
