NFL Alumni Super Bowl Networking Gala
January 31, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm$95
Enjoy an evening of networking with local business professionals and pro athletes. This fundraising event benefits local nonprofit youth organizations by providing funding needed to provide adequate equipment, facilities, and operations to our youth leagues. These charitable donations also provide scholarship opportunities for children who’s current economic environment may prevent participation.
About the benefiting youth organization:
The youth league chosen for this year’s benefit is NFL Leagues United. NFL Leagues United is a non profit youth developmental non contact football league who’s primary mission is to develop tomorrows “student athlete” and not just athlete. NFL Leagues United employs a unique stair-step approach wherein boys and girls age 5-14 progress through different divisions as they age… each with a specific set of development goals in mind. These divisions start with flag football and the basic fundamentals of the game and ultimately end with 8man which mirrors the contact game as much as possible. This stair-step approach ensures that their kids are prepared to take the next step onto the tackle field if they choose to do so.
The second aspect of their mission is academic performance. Not only does NFL Leagues United set weekly eligibility requirements, but also implements academics into the game day experience. One of the ways the league does this is by adding an academic challenge question as the PAT based on that child’s grade level. This allows the league to drive home the importance of being academically prepared and gives some of the less athletic kids a chance to have an impact on the game. Additionally, this allows administrators to identify children that may be having difficulty academically and provide those families with support options through some of the leagues partner programs.
