COACH EDUCATION NEWS
FTF Coaches attended the Maine Concussion Management Initiative Level 1 Training at Colby College on Friday 6/12/15 and in the process learned more details on sideline management in handling a possible concussion as well as post care and recovery. Our main goal is prevention through coaching up the kids on the most proper way to tackle and handle contact. We are always happy to answer any questions and help inform.
Inspecting equipment and taking an inventory of our needs at the conclusion of each season is vital to the safety and well-being of our players. FTF stays informed to the latest technological developments and advances in the gear a player wears in order to remain safe while having fun playing the game they love. Therefore, returning and accounting for equipment is very important. Equipment does not always have to be new to be effective, but we do take extreme caution and will not knowing allow a player to perform in unsafe gear.
NOTICE: OUTSTANDING UNIFORMS AND EQUIPMENT
Any participants from last year’s FTF programs still in possession of FTF equipment may not secure a spot on any team until the equipment is returned, or payment is made to FTF for its loss. Arrangements for the return of outstanding equipment should be made to the Vice President, Football Operations.
Vice President, Football Operations
Welcome to the Five Town Football official website. We are a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that is committed to helping kids learn about hard work, self-confidence and sportsmanship through the game of football.
But we are much more than that. We are a family. We are kids from all different walks of life and family situations. We are coaches who put in tremendous effort to ensure that our players have a safe and fun experience. We are parents who rely on one another for support, and who cheer just as loud for other FTF players as we do for our own. We are volunteers that put the words of the organization into action.
FTF is an organization that values winning, but only as a means to teach our players that the only way to be successful is through hard work. We value competition, but as a way to show our players that when it comes to the concept of ‘team’, we can always accomplish greater things working together than we can as individuals. We value sportsmanship, as a way to illustrate that a sense of community is the core to having a sense of belonging to something greater than just ourselves. We encourage our players to be the best football players they can possibly be, but only as a vehicle to help them greatly improve their self-confidence. We emphasize to them that the lessons they learn on the football field can be applied to all areas of their lives.
As you look through the photos on this site and talk to FTF parents and players, you’ll discover who we are. We always welcome new players and families to join us and play football in a fun and safe atmosphere, but know that FTF is more than that. We are a family. We are Jammers.
Come be part of the family!
