"Fight, Timmy, Fight" Campaign
The HHSFCDPA (Holmdel High School Football Cheerleading and Dance Parents) will be collecting items for the New Brunswick Ronald McDonald House at Friday night's Football Game.  Please bring an item from the list if you can.  They will donate all the items in honor of Timmy McDonnell.  Timmy graduated in 2012 and is a student at Rutgers.  He was hit by a car and suffered severe injuries and is still in the hospital.  The Ronald McDonald House has been a source of comfort for the family during this devastating time.  Let's fill up a box truck of donations!  Show them what Holmdel can do!

JPW - 7pm

Snack stand duties are as follows:

This will also affect Parent Appreciation Night.  Pee Wee will follow IMMEDIATELY after Jr. Pee Wee cheer & football.  Parents should be ready to go on field at the following times:

JPW (football & cheer) - 6:45pm
PW - 6:45pm
JRM - 8:15pm


Thank you for your patience with the changes.

Let's go Hornets!

Fundraising For the 2014 Season

Dear Parents,


Welcome to another great season of Holmdel Youth Football and Cheer!


The Holmdel Football Association is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enable the children and young adults of Holmdel to actively participate in football and cheerleading in a safe, structured and positive environment. We hope this will enable them to learn fundamental lessons, skills and values that they will use throughout their lives.  HFA seeks to provide fun, athletic learning opportunities for children, while emphasizing the importance of academic success. We are a volunteer-only organization.  The board members, coaches, team moms, cheer demonstrators, and snack stand staff, are all volunteering their time to make sure our kids have a fun, rewarding and successful season.


Fundraising is a necessary function of non-profit youth sports organizations and the Holmdel Football Association is no exception. As our expenses continue to rise, we rely more heavily on our fundraising efforts to close the gap. The purpose of fundraising is to offset program costs while keeping registration fees at a reasonable level. Some of our expenses include football and cheerleading uniforms, insurance, field usage, referee fees, facility fees, as well as the costs associated with purchasing the most up-to-date equipment to ensure the safety of our participants. 


Unlike other towns, we have not had to implement mandatory fundraising (books of raffle tickets for your children to sell, canning, etc.) or work bonds.  We try to keep donation requests to a minimum and only ask that you make a beverage donation to the snack stand in the beginning of the season. We also try to be mindful of your time and only ask that each family contribute 2-4 hours of snack stand duty per participant.


This year, we have 2 exciting fundraisers planned so far: 

  • Friday, September 26th- Poker Tournament Fundraiser
  • Saturday, November 15th- Rutgers Youth Football Day


Please consider volunteering your time and/or participating in our upcoming fundraising events this season! If you would like to become more involved in HFA, please contact us.  We always welcome new ideas!!


We are looking forward to another fantastic season! Go Hornets!
