2021 Marsh Creek Tackle Football

Welcome to the Marsh Creek Eagles!
 
Marsh Creek Eagles Tackle Football
The Marsh Creek Eagles are proud members of the Pop Warner Little Scholars and Bux-Mont organizations. Pop Warner is a nonprofit organization that provides youth football and cheer & dance programs for participants in 42 states and several countries around the world. 

All Marsh Creek Eagle families and coaches are committed to the fun, camaraderie and excitement that football can provide for the youth in our community. Many of our teams compete in competitive divisions and we strive to win every game we play. However, we believe success at this level of football is not measured by wins and losses; it is measured by our player’s enjoyment and growth. Players who can’t wait to get back on the field the next season, or who simply show improvement over the course of a season, those are the only “victories” that really matter and are valued. Many of our former players have been fortunate enough continue playing at the high school, college, and even a few at the professional levels. Yet no players will be signing an NFL contract or committing to any College programs at the end of a Marsh Creek season. Everyone involved with our organization works to keep our games in perspective and maintain an enjoyable environment for players and families.

Marsh Creek Football adheres to the rules of Pop Warner Little Scholars. One of the foundation rules requires minimum plays for each player to ensure that each child has a chance to learn the game of football and can create great experiences and memories for themselves. We offer multiple levels of football, some with an age/weight restriction and others that are simply age based, our goal is to always place our players on the team best suited for their safety and success. If you are not sure which division is best for your child do not worry – adjustments will be made and all players will be placed in the proper division to start the season. 
Team categories are based on the Pop Warner age guidelines and the player's age as of July 31st. The breakdown of possible teams are as follows:

Non-Competitive Teams
Rookie Tackle 7v7 – Unlimited – Ages 5, 6, & 7
Tiny Mites – 75lbs max - Ages 5, 6 & 7
8U – Unlimited / No max – Ages -7 & 8
Mighty Mites – 100Lbs max - Ages 7, 8, & 9

Pee Wee – 130Lbs max - Ages 9, 10, 11, & 12*
14U – Unlimited / No max – Ages -12, 13, & 14
An “*” next to an age indicates an Older/Lighter player – to participate they are required to be 20lbs below the listed max weight

All Marsh Creek Eagles coaches adhere to the following coaching philosophy: We focus to provide our children with a positive and enjoyable football experience.
  • ·        Insist that everyone is a good teammate – All players and coaches deserve respect and to be treated fairly
  • ·        Teach through positive reinforcement.
  • ·        Encourage hard work and the desire of not giving up, anything can be achieved.
  • ·        Motivate and challenge all of the children on a team.
  • ·        Involve parents of the children as much as possible.
  • ·        Teach football fundamentals to enable a good foundation for future years.
  • ·        Be competitive but fair, be aggressive but respectful, be tough but compassionate and maintain balance in your coaching.
  • ·        Win or lose, keep it fun and help explain the lessons along the way. 

We are almost always in need of additional help on the sidelines; the success of our program depends upon our volunteer coaches. Please consider volunteering to coach, all coaching positions are re-evaluated each season, positions are almost always available. We do appreciate having some football experience in our coaches, but the reality is, if you know how to coach or teach kids - then you know how to coach this level of football. We have all the tools needed to make anyone a great youth football coach – we just need the motivated people. If you are Interested in coaching - Please contact our Football Director [email protected]

In an effort to simplify the registration process and lower the overall cost our families incur during the season: we have rolled elements of the seasonal fees into one flat cost. The Marsh Creek Eagles are a 100% volunteer organization, no one involved is being paid for their time. Registration fees go to cover the costs of field rentals, lights, insurance, national dues, league fees, payment of game referees, equipment replacement and repair.  We do offer a Family Discount - all registrations for the season, after your first two children will receive a discount. You may also choose to pay your registrations cost on a three month payment plan (April, May, & June), site fees will apply. It is our policy to never allow registration fees to prohibit participation, If you have a financial hardship and would like to apply for scholarship funding, please contact the Director of Football at [email protected]

2021 Marsh Creek Fall Cheerleading

Welcome to the Marsh Creek Eagles!
 
Marsh Creek Eagles Fall Cheer
The Marsh Creek Eagles are proud members of the Pop Warner Little Scholars and Bux-Mont organizations. Pop Warner is a nonprofit organization that provides youth football and cheer & dance programs for participants in 42 states and several countries around the world. Pop Warner Spirit teams have participated for several decades on the football sidelines (Pep Squads, Majorettes, etc.); however, cheerleading as we know it was officially introduced in the 1970’s. Today, thousands of youth participate in Pop Warner Cheerleading and Dance teams around the United States. The Cheer and Dance Program offers teams a wide range of opportunity for young athletes at all skill levels: Novice, Intermediate and Advanced. 

The Marsh Creek Eagles cheerleading offers a great experience for kids who want to cheer for a team and also participate in exhibitions or competitions. Our focus is on fun and physical fitness as we develop skills that will allow many to continue cheering for years to come. March Creek Cheer members will learn not only cheers, dance, tumbling and routines but also gain friendships and learn camaraderie with their teammates.  Our younger ages have the chance to learn cheer at a non competitive level while our older girls have the chance to not only learn cheer but compete with the chance of moving on to Regional and Nationals Competitions. Marsh Creek Cheer will begin the season cheering for our respective football teams. Most games are held on Saturday's (some Sundays) and we do occasionally travel locally. 

Our MCE family aims to create a positive environment where girls can be themselves and have fun while learning teamwork, self-discipline, sportsmanship and perseverance, all while learning and perfecting their cheer skills.

During the traditional season, our cheerleaders will cheer on the sideline for football games (usually 8-10 games) and also learn a routine to perform at the BuxMont league Fun Day and competition (October). For competitive teams, if they place in the top 2 for their category and division at BuxMont, they will have the opportunity to advance to Pop Warner Eastern Regionals (November) and possibly Pop Warner Nationals (December in Orlando).

Cheer team categories are based on the Pop Warner age guidelines and the cheerleader's age as of July 31st. The breakdown of possible cheer teams are as follows:

Non-Competitive Teams
Cubs - Ages 5 & 6
Tiny Mites - Ages 6 & 7

Competitive Teams 
Mighty Mites - Ages 7-9
Jr. Pee Wee - Ages 8-11
Pee Wee - Ages 9-12
Junior Varsity - Ages 10-13
Varsity - Ages 14-16

Challenger Cheer 
Children ages 5-18 years old
*additional info below

Team Placements:
All cheerleaders will be placed on teams in August based on age and the number of athletes registered in the program.

Practice Schedule:
All teams are required to participate in 20 hours of conditioning prior to the start of the traditional practice season. Conditioning is typically the first two full weeks in August, Monday-Thursday in the evenings. Following conditioning all non-competitive cheer teams will practice two nights per week. Competitive teams may practice a third day weekly. August practices are held at Fellowship Fields. Beginning in September cheer teams will move to indoor practice space upon availability.

What's Included in the Registration Fee?
In an effort to simplify the registration process and lower the overall cost our families incur during the season: we have rolled elements of the seasonal fees into one flat cost. The Marsh Creek Eagles are a 100% volunteer organization, no one involved is being paid for their time. Registration fees go to cover the costs of field/practice facility rentals, lights, insurance, national dues, league fees, music licenses for routines, Competition fees, equipment replacement and repair.  

All athletes will receive a MCE uniform to use for the season. The uniform shell and skirt need to be returned (in good condition) at the end of the season. The bloomers, sleeves, sneakers and bow(s) are yours to keep.

In addition, registration fees cover:
  • MCE insurance coverage
  • Field fees
  • Practice location fees*
  • Raffle Tickets - Each athlete will receive $150 worth of Spirit Day raffle tickets that they can sell to offset their registration fee. 

*If a team advances to Nationals, additional fees will be collected to cover practice space costs after Regionals.

Family Discount: All registrations for the season, after your first two children (Cheer or Football) will receive a discount on the regular cost.

Payment Plan: You may choose to pay your registrations cost on a three month payment plan (April, May, & June), site fees will apply.

Financial Assistance:
It is our policy to never allow registration fees to prohibit participation in cheer. If you have a financial hardship and would like to apply for scholarship, please contact Kelly Baxter at [email protected]

Refund Policy:  If notification has been received prior to the first practice - 100% Refund, during the first calendar week of practice - 75% Refund, during the second calendar week of practice - 50% Refund, and during the third calendar week of practice – No Refund
Spirit wear:
While not required, many of our cheerleaders enjoy the opportunity to purchase MCE Cheer warm-up jackets, backpack, and other spirit wear available throughout the season.  

Expectations:
Since cheerleading is a team sport, the team only succeeds when everyone is in attendance. Therefore, 100% attendance is expected at practices and games unless there is an approved absence (illness/pre-planned family event). Appropriate behavior, respect, and sportsmanship is expected at all times.

Traditional and Winter Seasons:
Marsh Creek Cheer participates in both the traditional Pop Warner football season from August-December, and starting in 2020 we are excited to also offer extended cheer through the winter from January-May. During extended cheer athletes will have the opportunity to further develop their cheer skills in a safe and fun environment and will participate in 2-4 competitions throughout the season.

MCE Challenger Performance Cheer 
The MCE Challenger Performance Cheer program is new as of the 2020 fall season and will be led by an experienced Marsh Creek cheer coach who also has a daughter with special needs.  Challenger Performance Cheer, for children ages 5-18 years old, will offer those with special needs an opportunity to participate in both sideline cheer and to learn an exhibition cheer/dance routine with the option to perform at the BuxMont Pop Warner Fun Day in October. These athletes, with help from “buddies,” will learn all aspects of cheer and also have the opportunity, if desired, to cheer with the Marsh Creek cheerleading teams on the sidelines for select tackle football games on Saturdays.  No prior cheer experience is necessary, and participation from all levels of physical ability is welcome and encouraged!  

The MCE Challenger Performance Cheer program registration fee is $55 and registration will be available online on the Marsh Creek Eagles home page. Practices will be held 1-2 days a week August through October.  This is not a competitive team, and your level of commitment is up to you and your athlete. This program will aim to teach lessons of value that extend far beyond basic game play or spirit activities. Challenger Performance Cheer participants will learn the basics of athletic body movement, awareness and strength, as well as teamwork, concentration, friendship, leadership, sportsmanship, confidence, and to just have fun and enjoy the moment…skills to carry with them for life.

What's Included in the Registration Fee?
  • A MCE loaned uniform provided to each participant
  • Bloomers and bow(s) to keep
  • MCE insurance coverage
  • Practice space
  • Pop Warner National Registration Fee ($10)
Athletes interested in this option should register on the Marsh Creek home page for the “MCE Challenger Performance Cheer” program. If you have questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact Kelly Baxter at [email protected].
