Benefits of Holmdel Football Association, NJAYF, and AYF/C:

  • HFA is the ONLY youth football and cheer program in Holmdel that has been in existence for over 30 years.
  • HFA is the ONLY Holmdel organization who can TRULY boast a storied history including multiple National Cheerleading Championships, Regional Championships, and Jersey Shore Championships.
  • HFA is the ONLY Holmdel organization who can TRULY take claim to a storied football history including a team that participated in National Championships playoffs, Regional Championships, multiple Jersey Shore and Division Championships, and a National Invitational Mitey Mite Bowl.
  • HFA believes in building a strong community with the approximately 200 families that are a part of our organization.

  • AYC allows the cheerleaders to participate in clinics during the offseason and HFA will be taking advantage of this!
  • Many of the HFA coaches have multiple years coaching experience.
  • In 2011, HFA changed our affiliation from Pop Warner to American Youth Football & Cheer along with 31 other Jersey Shore Associations forming NJAYF (New Jersey American Youth Football).

  • AYF/AYC has an All Star game in January and NJAYF accepted applications from each association and carefully selected a handful of football players and cheerleaders from the conference (NJAYF) to attend – an unforgettable experience for those boys and girls.
  • In 2011, NJAYF won a $10,000 grant from Kraft Foods for scoring highest in the “Huddle to Fight Hunger” challenge – HFA held canned food drives, bake sales, and volunteered at a local soup kitchen to help score points for our conference.  AYF/C believes in giving back to the community!

HFA Board Emails
Dear HFA Families,
 

It has come to our attention that we are having technical difficulties receiving emails from the HFA website. We realized this problem about a week ago and do not know how long it has been going on. Emails being sent to board members at their "@holmdelfootballassociation.com" email addresses are not being received. 

 
If you have recently sent an email to someone using a holmdelfootballassociation.com email address and did not receive a response, the person probably did not receive your email. 
 
We sincerely apologize if you recently sent out an email to one of us and did not receive a timely response. We have transitioned all of our board member's to the gmail addresses listed below.  
 
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

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!

 

Sincerely,

The HFA Board

 

Mike Tedeschi, President                                               Sal D’Acunto, Vice President

Colleen Cook, Treasurer                                     Keri Todisco, Secretary, Scholastics

Mike Tomasulo, Football Commissioner                         Lisa Nuzzi, Cheer Commissioner

 

Members at Large:

Steve Cittadino, Amy Cleary, Joe Crowley, Troy Gallo, Christine Guilfoyle, Joe Hernando,

Joe Jennings, Yilan Lazarou, Jeff Rainess, and Melissa Tatro,
