Jr. Pee Wee Travel Expenses

The Petaluma Panthers Junior Pee Wee football team to compete this month in the inaugural Pro Football Hall of Fame National Youth Championship.

-        The biggest and best national youth football championship in the country. It’s the Little League World Series of Youth Football!

-        This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for these boys (ages 9 - 11) to play against the top talent in the nation and promote the Bay Area on a national stage.

Canton, Ohio, December 14 - 17, 2017. Our team was hand-picked by a committee headed by former Cleveland Browns General Manager Ray Farmer and his staff of Ex-NFL coaches and national scouts based on: in-person and game film evaluation, big play ability, and character. We competed against teams from Oregon and California over the weekend (12/1 - 12/3) and won 36-0 & 12-6 respectively for the right to represent our Northern California bracket/region (11 states) in the finals where we will face teams from everywhere in America.

Complete with a national ranking system designed by former NFL executives, 11 regional playoff locations around the country, and an emerging $700M world-class football complex to call “home,” this championship event has it all and will settle all debates on who is the best - grade by grade, team by team, state by state, and region by region.

We need the Bay Area’s help to make this happen. It will cost approximately $1,000 per person (including airfare, ground transportation, lodging, meals, miscellaneous spending) to make the 7-day/6-night trip to Canton. With 25+/- players, 6 coaches, and 40 - 50 parents/chaperones/siblings, it’s a historic but costly endeavor.

These boys have played their little hearts out since mid-July. Please demonstrate your Bay Area pride by supporting our fundraising efforts with a monetary contribution or in-kind donation (cold weather gear, warm-ups, promotional apparel, etc.). All proceeds raised will directly benefit this deserving team of boys. 

Donations can be made at any Exchange Bank location, through the Petaluma Panthers Go Fund Me page, or via check (please make checks payable to the Petaluma Panthers - Attention: Jr. Pee Wees National Championship Fund and send to PO Box 4671, Petaluma, CA 94955). Any amount is fine; small amounts will add up! Thank you for your support!
