The North Middlesex Patriots are pleased to be hosting this year’s North Jamboree on August 20, 2017. Attached you will find a copy of this year’s schedule for your review. All games will be played at Taylor Field.
1 Hospital Rd
Shirley Ma 01464
Games will begin promptly at 9:00 am and run throughout the day. Please have each team show up an hour and a half prior to the start of their games. Note: teams playing at 9:00 am should show up an hour and 15 minutes before the games, “all others” an hour and a half. This will allow you and your team’s ample time to get certified by Central Mass and warm up. We will have two fields available for the games giving us 4 games and 8 teams playing at one time. Each game will be 2, 20 minute half’s with a 5 minute half time. This is a running clock. We have segmented out 4 warm up areas (each will be posted) directly adjacent to the playing fields. Each team will have half a warm up area to stretch and get ready for their games.
Cost of Admission:
There will be a $5.00 per person charge. Anyone under the age of 5 gets in free. All coaches and players wearing a uniform will get in at no charge. Cash only will be collected as the cars enter. If a coach or player is not in uniform they will be charged the standard admissions fee, “NO Exceptions”
We have designated a one way system in and out of Taylor Filed to minimize congestion. We will have traffic directed by the local Shirley Police Department into the playing fields with support of parking attendants to maintain a systematic process. Please note: there is No Parking in the Middle School parking lot, this will be strictly enforced and all violators will be towed at their own expense.
There are NO Dogs allowed at the field, please keep all pets at home…
Taylor field has very limited seating. It is highly recommended that attendees bring their own lawn chairs to watch the games comfortably.
Chains and Down Markers:
If you are the home team, we ask that you designate 3 individuals to run the chains and the down marker during your games. As with most home games this is a bit of a treat for the parents and gets them just a little bit closer to the filed.
We will have a full suite of concessions for both breakfast and lunch during the Jamboree.
Please note: No outside food or coolers will be allowed at the fields. The concessions are an important part of helping to fund our programs as it is with all programs. We ask that you share this with your players and parents.
T-shirts will be available for $12.00 (we will have a credit card machine, but reception is not great at the field so please be prepared with Cash.)
If there are any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me directly. We are looking forward to hosting you all this year! Best of luck to all this season!
As we prepare for the upcoming 2017 football season, we wanted to bring everyone up to speed on some important changes that we made last season. We decided, after careful consideration, to transition out of Central Mass Pop Warner and join Central Mass American Youth Football & Cheer Conference.
There were several factors that we took into consideration when making this decision, but most importantly, what is best for our players/cheerleaders, their families and our program as a whole.
So what does this mean to us?
- The BWBB Lions become part of the largest youth football organization in the US.
- We join a league that’s more localized to our communities.
- We’re able to offer cheer and football to more kids – there’s no longer a too big or too small.
Historically we have needed to move kids either up or down divisions so that we could make rosters or manipulate sizes so that we could accommodate the most kids possible. Our philosophy will not change here, however the configurations of our teams will differ.
AYF works from a grade-based leveling system. This means that we can field a team(s) at either a single grade, or combine no more than 2 grades into a roster. Knowing what we do about our program and our kids, we anticipate 3-4 football teams this season. This all depends on registration numbers, but early indicators are looking like:
- 8th/7th grades combined team
- 6th/5th grades combined team
- 4th/3rd grades combined team
- K-2 introduction/instructional team
We’re also excited about the opportunities this presents for our cheer program. We anticipate being able to offer 2-3 cheer teams, but this is heavily dependent on registration numbers. We look forward to continuing to grow our cheer program into as many teams at as many levels as possible!
We’re already looking forward to the 2017 football and cheer season, and we’re obviously excited about this change and want you to be too! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to any of our Board of Directors.
