Here are some excerpts from letters we have received about our programs in the areas from Bethlehem to Easton:
Thanks for running the tournament today. Our team had fun playing against some competition instead of just scrimmaging itself.
Our team had a gentleman come up to us and tell our AFC players that he was blessed by their actions and attitudes, and I thought,
"This is how it SHOULD be!"
God Bless...and thanks again for your leadership of the league!

I want to let you know just how perfect this NFL -Flag league is for the kids! To see my son William have the opportunity to catch a ball and run and feel a part of the team, is just so rewarding to his confidence as well as my joy as a par! I have been coaching him for 5 years in various sports and your league and principals. I play everyone and ask the kids every game what they want to do, ie play QB, Run etc.. I have watched our team come together and enjoy playing as a unit..Our girl, Emily has been wonderful and fits in nicely.. Everyone feels a part of the game..
The Refs have been great. They are very open and tell me as a coach when one of the kids may be doing something wrong (instead of call a penalty) and I tell the kid on the side to be careful (ie not to block or flag guard).. the refs let the kids play the game and have fun even at the U14 level.
I talk to the parents when the drop off or pick up their kids to make sure they are happy and enjoying the experience. I try to make sure that the practices are convenient and their kids are playing the position that they enjoy. Feedback is beneficial to everyone. The parents after the double header this week were all very pleased to see their kids come together after limited practices (unlike other teams who have been together for a couple of years). It has been rewarding for everyone.
I would like to say hats off to Coach Tyson!!!! This past Saturdays game he showed just what this league is all about- having fun! He kept his cool-showing all of us that this should be fun and not a high tension battle to see who is the best team. My son, who you have to drag a response from said to me on the way home, "I had fun today, even if we lost, I don't know maybe we won I just had fun didn't you?" Wow, this was a good day!
Thanks Coach Tyson and TeamX Sports!
Good Morning Chuck,
Thank you very much for the email and very well put... From day one after I registered my son I have been very much impress with this organization/league. I love what you are doing and the pledges that are sign at this league... and I love how all kids get to play equal time you don't find too many organization around like this with the exception of Upward Basketball they have the same philosophy, all kids play equal time, they learn the fundamentals and have fun....
When I sent you an email before it was more to compliment you at a job well done with your league and the coaches.
I want you to know that I am very happy with this league..
Great email and I say that because I am glad to see you receive the credit you deserve. What you have created is something like I have never seen before. I can honestly say that this is the best sports program I have even been a part of.
I commend you and all of your efforts as I see the players from our program our growing each week (emotionally and physically). This is not something you ever see if any program.
Once again thank you for starting up this program.
I wanted to thank you for the great job you are doing with this whole league. I am very impress with the coaches you have on your league. You have selected a fine group of men/parents that are teaching the kids great sportsmanship. The coaches conduct themselves very professional and show great sportsmanship. I wanted to let you know that I appreciate what you do for this league.
I see what you are doing and what your coaches are doing and showing our kids and I am so proud to have my son in your league. They are having fun and learning good sportsmanship... You should give yourself a pat on the back for this great league you have put together....
Thank you for all you do Chuck.
Dear Chuck, Coach Chris and Coach Sean-
I just wanted to say thank you for a great first football day today! This is our first experience with organized sports for our boys, and they all had a great time and left feeling very positive.
We are looking forward to the rest of the season-
Becky and Steve Adamson
