We receive countless emails asking details about the Youth Football Online All Star program. So what’s it about? On the surface it’s about recognizing the accomplishments of premier youth football athletes, on and off the field. Digging deeper, it’s about setting a positive example by featuring exceptional kids.
The All Star program we have set up is unique because it spotlights a youth football athlete’s scholastic and community achievements, combined with his on-field accomplishments. Being named an all star gives your child a reward for the hard work he has put in. The congratulations that he receives from friends and family snowballs, working positively on his self-esteem.
“Positive feedback provides a quiet boost in self confidence. Consider each positive word to be a brick that builds the home that is a child’s self esteem. You want to build a big house” says Pammy Sehgal, PhD in Clinical Social Work.
How the All Star program works- when a YFO All Star selection is confirmed, we go through a process of interviewing the child with his parents. Afterward, we involve coaches and teachers with positive words about the child. Finally, the article gets created and published and finds its place on the web. We’ll spread the word via social media and provide a YFO All Star badge for the child’s website.
Why do we love the program? Fast food combined with a sedentary lifestyle (video game play), has created a United States of obese kids. We’re not happy about this. YFO All Stars break that mold as they are not your typical kids. They’re in motion, keeping busy to avert laziness. Our All Stars boldly stand up against bullying. They show to the world you can have a physical disability and still excel in athletics. Their stories motivate us.
We realize it’s not just the kids who are all star selections. There is much to be said about the tireless contribution that family and coaches pour into a child’s success. The all star status applies to them as well.
