Hello friends, what an outstanding year it has been for Watchung Hills Pop Warner. I could not be more proud of the grand achievements of your boys and girls this year. We have two cheer teams going to Disney to compete for national titles. In addition, the junior pee wee football team, ages 10-12, are also going to Disney to compete for a national championship. Let me tell you about these boys:
They are 13-0 and won their conference title four weeks ago against Flemington with a touchdown with 20 seconds left in the game.
They subsequently beat Staten Island (26-6) and then Montclair (16-0) for the NJ State title
They advanced to beat the Maryland State Champion 34-6 last weekend
Yesterday, they won the Eastern Region Championship against the Pennsylvania State Champ 12-0 and earned a trip to Disney to compete for the National Championship title Dec 6-12th.
With this great achievement comes the reality of significant expenses for the team to make the trip a reality. So, we have set up a “gofundme” site: http://www.gofundme.com/hxtjkk and we are asking all of our friends and family for any support they can provide. Many of you have assisted our WHPW program with so much time and treasure over the years and we certainly would not be where we are today as a program without all that you have done. So, thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Watchung Hills Pop Warner will be holding its annual Football and Cheerleading Banquet on Sunday, January 11, 2015 at The Stonehouse at Sterling Ridge in Warren. The festivities will begin at 10:00 a.m. when we will be honoring all of our players and cheerleaders with trophies. The organization will also be recognizing all participants who qualify for our Little Scholars award as well as those with perfect attendance in August. Please join us for this fun family event where your children will be honored for all of their hard work and dedication! The tickets are $30 for children and $45 for adults. Children 5 and under are free.
The “tickets” can be purchased online at www.whpw.org. Just click on the “Registration” tab and you will be prompted through the process. Note that registration will require you to click on a registered adult first (as children will appear as “ineligible”) and then tickets will be available for purchase for both adults and children. Tickets will not be available at the door and must be purchased online by January 4, 2015. Any question please email Denise DePekary at email@example.com.
