President's Corner

To All WYF Families,

Happy summer!  For most of our kids Tuesday was the last day of school. And, yesterday we logged the first day of summer into the books!  

As a board, one of our goals has always been to have many kids as possible in the Wellesley Community play and enjoy learning the game of football.  One of the challenges football, inherently, is timing.  Fortunately this year the calendar provides us with some degree of flexibility. After discussion with our Head Coaches and the Board we have modified the preseason schedule to reflect our concern that parents and kids enjoy some family time while also having sufficient time to practice and prepare for youth football. Having been through the summer baseball rigors and youth football Augusts with my boys I understand the importance of some rare family vacation time!

Therefore, we have altered our schedule for the upcoming 2016 season.

  • 8/1 - 8/4: Optional practices.  Your coach will communicate the schedule.
  • 8/8-8/11: Skills Clinic at Sprague Fields
  • 8/15: Mandatory Practices begin, M-TH

If you have additional questions regarding the practice schedule you can find them at 


We look forward to a fun 2016 Season!

Enjoy your summer,

Justin Maiona

WYF, President
