Deer Valley Sparks Championships

We did it!  The Sparks are the 2018 Popwarner D2 JV Wescon Champions!  It was a hard fought battle besting Murrieta 26-16! 

Now the journey to Florida for the national championships is 100% a go!  They boys have worked so hard to get to this point!  Thank you for your continued support!   

Go Sparks!   

The Deer Valley Sparks are a Popwarner football team that has been together working hard for over 7 years!    Every year we have gotten better and better and this year is the culmination of all that hard work!

The Sparks have won their second D2 state championship and are on the verge of winning the D2 Wescon Regional Championship.  

The Sparks have an opportunity for the first time to play in the Popwarner Super Bowl (National Championships) at the ESPN Sports Complex in Florida. 

Every Player has been asked to raise $1400 in order to pay for the accommodations and events in Florida.  Any donation helps achieve our goal! 

Our first deposit of $15K is due 11/19 for the entire team.  The remaining $15K will need to be raised soon after.  

Please contact me for receipts and sponsorship forms if needed! 

Thank you so much for supporting the Sparks and their hard work and dedication. Go SPARKS FAMILY!


Gofundme has asked I include information about myself (the organizer) for transparency. 

My name is Rick Huisman.  I am a coach for the Deer Valley Sparks.    

The money being raised will go directly to the players and coaches Disney World Accomadations, Fields, and Fees associated with playing in the national championships in Florida.  These fees will be paid for through the Deer Valley Popwarner bank account.  

All the funds raise here are deposited into my account and I am writing checks directly to Deer Valley Pop Warner as they come in.   Please feel free to contact me or our accountant for more information.
