Eagle's Coaches prepare for 2015 Season.
|| The 2015 season has started early for the Eagles Coaching staffs. The Eagles Coaches "sharpened the saw" and worked on improving their coaching skills by attending the Miami Dolphins Youth & High School Coaching Clinic held April 6th - 9th
at Nova Southeastern University. This was the first time the Dolphin's held this event and it was a great success.
Miami Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin opened the
clinic on Monday evening and discussed the
importance of coaching the coaches and paying it
forward to all those who had mentored him during his
career. All Of the Dolphins positional coaches were on hand to give presentations as were
Dolphins Offensive Coordinator Bill Lazor, Special Teams
Coordinator Darren Rizzi and Defensive Coordinator Kevin Coyle. NCAA Coaching Staffs from the University of Miami, Florida Atlantic and Florida
International University were also on hand to give live drills and skills demonstrations. All the Eagles coaches who attended came away
thoroughly impressed with the quality of the clinic and the information
The Eagles Thank Twan Russell and the Dolphins
Academy Staff for putting on such a great event. Click Here
for an article on the clinic from the Dolphins website.
The Eagles program and the AYFL are committed to fielding South Florida's best youth football coaches, the Dolphins coaching clinic, which was mandatory for our coaches was a part of that
commitment. In addition, For the 1st time in 2015,
all Eagles Head and Assistant coaches will be required to become USA Football members and complete USA Football's Level 1 Tackle Coaching Certification.
This Certification which includes Heads Up Football training will give our coaches a comprehensive collection of resources; programs, applications and promotions to effect change and address the complex challenges of player health and safety in youth football.

Eagles Add Mighty Mite Program
The Eagles will field a new development
division for players six and under in 2015. This new
Mighty Mite division will allow younger players the chance to experience tackle football in a non-competitive environment with an emphasis on skill development and player safety. Players will be taught by USA Football Certified
Coaches basic football fundamentals. The Mighty Mites program was designed to benefit players new to the game. who may have not gotten as much playing time in the 8U Division. |
The Mighty Mites is still a tackle division. There will be contact (but at a much slower speed), the players will be in full uniform and they will compete against teams from other AYFL member clubs. There are,
however some significant differences from our regular tackle program.
The most significant difference for the Mighty Mites is the time commitment. Mighty Mites will meet only three times a week, compared to five for our regular tackle divisions. They will have two
practices and one game a week. Games will be on Thursday nights at
6:45 pm. Games will consist of four 15 minute quarters.
Each team will have a 15 minute offense and defense
session each half. The clock will run during the
game and will only be stopped for injury or a team can
elect to use their one offensive timeout. Total game time including half time should run about 1 hour and
15 minutes. Practices will be held from 6:30 to 8:00 pm weekdays, days TBD.
Official scores will not be kept in this
division, like our 8U division, coaches will be allowed on the field with the players.
Games will be played on a 50 yard field. Each team
will start their offensive possession from the 40 yard
line heading into the end zone. Our Mighty Mites program will have mandatory play rules and every player will participate in games. The Mighty Mites registration
fee is also reduced and is only $225/$200. $15 less than
our regular tackle divisions.
- Non-competitive division with emphasis on skill development for 6U players.
- Coaching by USA Football certified coaches who will emphasis game fundamentals and player safety.
- Mandatory play rules.
- Reduced time commitment. Two practices and one game per week. All on weekdays
- Reduced practice and game times
- Mighty Mite teams will have equal time on
offense and defense.
- Still tackle football, contact, full pads and
competition against AYFL member clubs.
- Reduced Fees. Registration $150 through July 5th.
Mayor Tooley Welcomed into the Eagle Nation.
|While the Eagles were accomplishing special things on the field in
last seasons big win over Boca. They had a special guest off the field.
Coconut Creek Mayor Becky Tooley stopped by to show her support for the Eagles. The mayor who is a big supporter of youth sports in the City, took time off from her busy schedule to
come and cheer on the Eagles.
The Eagles were eager to show their appreciation to the Mayor, the City and the Parks & Recreation Staff for all their support in helping coordinate everything that goes into an Eagle's Home game.
The Mayor delivered the game ball for our 140 lb. game and presided over the coin toss. The fired up 140's then went on to win that game 32-0. In fact the Eagles swept the day. Winning all seven contests against the
visiting Jets. With success like that we need to petition Mayor Tooley to be at every home game.
Thank you Mayor Tooley! Thank you Coconut Creek!
Thank you Parks & Recreation Dept.
Your help makes us one of the premier programs in the AYFL and we are proud
ambassadors of the City each and every game day.
Special thanks to the following members of the Parks & Recreation Department Staff. Who have done an outstanding job in helping the Eagles in our first two home games.
