Youth Football team to Florida

We are the 2017 Mighty Mite Sparks Cougars football team playing out of Sagebrush Empire Pop Warner in Northern Nevada. Our league has selected us to represent them in the 2017 Mighty Mite National invitational games in Orlando Florida at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex this coming December 2nd. We are truly honored for this opportunity and are very proud to be the first ever Mighty Mite team out of Sagebrush Empire to play in this event.

Our team is made up of 30 young men between the ages of seven and nine years old. These young men are not only hard workers on the football field but excel in their school and home lives too with all of our players holding a B average or better.

We are also blessed with seven of the most amazing coaches and one of the best team manager you could find. Our coaches have over 30 years of combined coaching experience ranging from the youth level and high school too minor league adult teams. Our main objective is to Develop our players techniques, and emphasize the little aspects that lead to results in skill development in both sports and life. Emphasis is placed on success in the classroom, football and life. Motivate student-athletes through a caring and competitive atmosphere in approach to success and failure

As you know the logistics in getting a youth team across country is daunting and very expensive and thats where you come in. We will be flying out of Reno on Thursday November 30th and returning Sunday December 3rd. We are estimating the cost to be around $1,200 per athlete, coach, and manager. This cost will cover air fair to and from, 3 night hotel stay and food for Thursday night through breakfast on Sunday morning. Do to the short time frame we need to raise this money pretty quick and are hoping to be funded by the beginning of November.

We know and understand that this team and it's successes and opportunities mainly only effect the ones involved but please don't let be the deciding factor in helping us out. This is a great opportunity for these young men in teaching them that their hard work and dedication by themselves and for others is worth something and that with hard work you can achieve greatness. Those values are being lost in this day and age.

Thank you for any help you can provide
Coach Peter Coyne
