OUR FUNDRAISER THIS YEAR WILL BE A MEGA 50/50 CASH RAFFLE. IN THE PAST WE’VE HAD GREAT SUCCESS WITH YANKEE CANDLE AND MIXED BAG DESIGNS, SO THIS YEAR WE COLLECTIVELY DECIDED TO TAKE A BREAK FROM MERCHANDISE AND HAVE THE FUNDRAISER BE SIMILAR TO THE GAME DAY EVENT OF A 50/50 CASH RAFFLE.
WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT THIS FUNDRAISER! THE MORE WE SELL AS AN ORGANIZATION, THE MORE THE WINNER WINS! THE GOALS ARE HIGH… WE ARE AIMING TO RAISE $10,000 IN TICKET SALES, WHICH MEANS, $5,000 FOR THE WINNER!! THE RAFFLE PROCEEDS WILL COVER GROWING OPERATIONAL EXPENSES AND THE COST OF PURCHASED NEW FOOTBALL HELMETS AND NEW CHEER UNIFORMS FOR THE 2014 SEASON TEAMS. WE ARE ASKING EACH FAMILY TO SELL/BUY 2 BOOKS OF TICKETS, EACH BOOK HAS TEN $5.00 TICKETS WHICH, TOTALS $100 PER FAMILY. IF YOU CAN SELL OR WOULD LIKE TO PURCHASE MORE TICKETS, FANTASTIC! EACH TEAM MOM WILL HAVE ACCESS TO ADDITIONAL QUANTITIES. THE RAFFLE WINNER WILL BE DRAWN AT THE PEP RALLY SCHEDULED ON FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 19, 2014. THE WINNER NEED NOT BE PRESENT.
BE CREATIVE WHEN SELLING YOUR TICKETS… ASK FAMILY, FRIENDS, CO-WORKERS AND YOUR FAVORITE ORGANIZATIONS TO SUPPORT OUR YOUTH PROGRAM - EVERYONE CAN BENEFIT FROM EXTRA CASH! WE WILL ALSO PRESENT A PRIZE FOR THE FAMILY WHO HAS THE HIGHEST NUMBER OF TICKET SALES.
THE MEGA 50/50 CASH RAFFLE RULES IS SIMILAR TO HOME GAME DAY 50/50 DRAWINGS. ONE IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE IS THAT THE STATE REQUIRES US TO ACCOUNT AND REPORT EVERY SOLD AND UNSOLD TICKET AT THE END OF THE DRAWING. WE URGE YOU TO HELP BY MAKING SURE TO GIVE ALL UNSOLD RAFFLE TICKETS AND STUBS TO YOUR TEAM MOM NO LATER THAN SEPTEMBER 10TH. PAYMENT FOR SOLD TICKETS CAN BE CASH OR CHECK MADE OUT TO WHPW. PLEASE BE SURE TO PLACE ALL MONIES IN AN ENVELOPE WITH CHILDS NAME AND LEVEL OF PLAY.
Dear Families, welcome to the 2014 season at Watchung Hills Pop Warner Football & Cheer.
The grass is cut, the turf field has been groomed and repelleted, the field numbers, hash marks and the helmet at midfield are being painted, the new football helmets are on order as well as the new cheer uniforms. We are ready to go!
We are very excited to kick off the new season and we look forward to a great year seeing our boys and girls develop and achieve. We have very high hopes for them and we know that they will work very hard to impress you and accomplish their team goals. Most importantly, we know they will have a lot of fun doing so.
We have assembled a great group of men and women who will serve as your coaches, commissioners and team moms. As you know, they dedicate a lot of time in preparation for the season as well as significant time during the season away from their families so please give them 100% of your support as you have in the past. Each season has its challenges and I would like everyone to be mindful of the “24 hour rule”. If you have a concern, give it 24 hours, think it through and then approach your coach in a controlled, professional manner.
Our MM, JPW, PW and JM teams will begin practice on Monday, August 4th.
Our Flag Football teams will begin on Monday, August 18th.
Our JPW and JM teams will being practice on Monday, August 4th.

Please mark your calendars that we are holding our annual football jamboree on Saturday August 23rd at our complex. This event has become one of the most recognized football scrimmages in the region and this year our competitive tackle teams will be playing against leading programs from NJ, NY and PA.
For you planners out there, our first game is scheduled for Sunday September 7th- the first time in many years that our first game is after Labor Day.
One important safety note, please refrain from parking in the grass area just inside our complex entrance. Also, please do not drop off or pick up your children in this area as it creates a dangerous situation for our children crossing the parking lot. The police department will ticket those in violation so we ask for your cooperation.
On a final note, we are always looking for assistance from our parent base. If you are interested in assisting us whether in a formal or informal fashion, please let us know.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and we look forward to seeing everyone on Monday.
