Personal Message to All Volunteers 2017

                  Gloucester Mustangs 2017

      Message for All Members and Parents         Gloucester Mustangs 2017     





   


       “You make a living by what you get. 
                      You make a life by what you give.”


The Gloucester Mustangs is a Non Profit Football and Cheerleading Organization with a sole purpose in mind to bring the gift of sport and competition to the children of our community. Thus while teaching the ability to work as a team and build relationships and character that will follow them into their adolescent years. Way too often we see a breakdown of faith and trust as our children grow and find their way in life. We fail to see as adults their need to contribute and feel part of something that could be very well the way for them to feel wanted or even fit in. The foundation that we build could be the inspiration that will carry our children through times of pain or confusion. They can see as we push the obstacles out of their way a great effort. Our efforts they see , Our Love for them they feel. The joy of a smiling face should be enough to make you realize how much you efforts count. How important our support for each other shows what they may have in the same instance as we produce our future role models. It's the teacher who prepares the student for life. If you ever may image if your efforts make a difference, I will say to all yes, a thousand times yes. Please remember that we rise by lifting others. Yes I know you may not have the time but we realize you have the heart. The smallest gift can go the furthest. Just one hour may change a life.
No One Can Do Everything But Everyone Can Do Something.

Volunteering is all about Your Child's Future

 The Importance of Volunteering in Youth Sports 

Time isn’t something that many parents spare. Between working, caring for the children and keeping a home, you’re probably exhausted enough as it is. Add to that the social commitments, some down time and spending time with your extended family, and you’re probably wishing there were more hours in the day.
It’s easy to come up with excuses as to why you can’t be the one to help out with your child’s sports teams. After all, you’re busy, tired and surely another parent must have more free time than you. But will you be missing out if you pass up on this opportunity to really get involved in your child’s favorite pastime?
Here are five reasons why you should volunteer with your child’s sports team:
#1: They Need You
There isn’t much money in youth sports, not at the school level anyway. Your child’s team is probably struggling to get by on a limited budget. Yes, you could cut them a check, but your time is worth much more to them. They want parents who are involved, engaged and supportive. Although you may not know, you have some skills that could benefit the team. Whether you’re a wiz at writing press releases, a an expert fundraiser, or own a van that could be used to transport equipment, the team needs you.
#2: Extra Bonding Time
Going to watch the games is great, and you’re already an amazing parent. But getting involved in the team will give you that extra little bit of bonding time with your kid. It may also give you more of an insight into what your child is like outside of home. You may see him on the pitch every week, but volunteering will allow you into the backstage area too, and that’s a very different field.
#3: It’s Supportive
Telling your kids you support them is great, but showing them is even better. What better way to support your child’s team than by being a part of it? Your child will know just how much you support them when you start volunteering your spare time to help them out.
#4: Community Spirit
One small way you can improve the world is by making positive changes in your local community. By helping out your child’s team, you are getting involved in your local community and offering the skills and time they need to offer a better service. By volunteering, you could help the team reach out to more children, improve their game and offer the children better opportunities.
#5: That Warm, Fuzzy Feeling
You know what makes you feel good about yourself? Doing something worthwhile. Giving up one night in front of the television each week in favor of some voluntary work is pretty much guaranteed to leave you feeling awesome. By contributing your time, you will be making a difference in the lives of people in your local community and your own family. Go on, get stuck in and enjoy that warm, fuzzy feeling after doing something good.

Gloucester Mustangs 2017 Football Cleat Drive

          April 8th 2017

Gloucester Little League Baseball Cleat Drive 2017


       The Gloucester Mustangs will be taking your old football cleats which your child has either grown out of or they are getting a new pair and have no use for their old ones. You can also bring used baseball cleats to us and we will give them to our Little League Representatives.

      This is a great opportunity to give back to another child who is in need of cleats. We would ask of you not Donate Cleats that are in need of any major repairs or worn out to the point where they can't be used at all.  If you bring them to us , we will evaluate the shape they are in and dispose of the cleats that are just too worn out to reuse. We will also be collecting used baseball cleats to be turned over to Gloucester Little League Baseball.
     The Mustang and Little League Baseball Used Football and Baseball Cleat Drive will start at our next Football and Cheerleading registration on April 8 , 2017.
Opening Day for Gloucester City Little League.
     Place : Major and Minor Baseball Complex
