Wildcats to inform in two sessions

Fairfield Wildcats Youth Football League has opened registration for its fall 2013 tackle football (grades 3-8), flag football (now grades K-4) and new cheer leading program.
The Fairfield County Football League (FCFL) program is a grade-based system with towns representative of those  ideals. The Cats will compete  through high school with players from Darien, Fairfield, New Canaan, Norwalk, Weston, Westport, Wilton and Ridgefield.
The league will be hosting two Open Houses — Thursday, May 16 at the Warde High cafeteria from 7-9 p.m., and Tuesday, May 21 at the Ludlowe High cafeteria from 7-9.
All are welcome (past and prospective participants) based upon individual scheduling availability, not on respective school district.
The sessions will feature general information on Wildcats tackle, flag and cheer programs that will be facilitated by coaches, league officials and parent volunteers.
A  safety discussion will be moderated to explain the Fairfield County Football League  policies in place to protect players, including an equipment showcase  that will allow parents/players to see how they would be fitted for play — and the overall role equipment has in player safety on the field
In addition, head coaches from the Fairfield High Schools are scheduled to be in attendance to discuss their views on FCFL as a feeder into the high schools, and importance of fundamental skills training.
As an added bonus for those who attend, a special registration drawing will be held for all registrations made at the open houses (both past players and new players registering at computer kiosk areas).
Winners will receive gift certificates towards Wildcats’ merchandise.
Volunteer opportunities and information will be shared by returning parents in the Wildcats program for those looking to volunteer their time.
The overall goal of the Fairfield Wildcats is to provide a program for kids of the community that is fun and will inspire youth members through the following objectives:
1) Bring Fairfield youth members together through a common interest in athletic competition
2) Provide supervised, organized, and safety-oriented learning environments
3) Teach the fundamentals of football
4) Collaborate closely with the Fairfield HS programs
5) Provide the opportunity to practice and play, free from pressures to win at all costs; use only those coaches and volunteers whose goals support these objectives.
