We would like to gather as many players, in uniform, to participant together on race day to show our support for Matt’s Mission and all of the amazing work that they do.
As we get into full swing with practices and games at the fields on Mill Road and Jerome Harrison, I thought this would be a good time to share a message with you from our Parks & Recreation Department regarding field use:
“Please remind all coaches to remind all the athletes & parents to pick up after themselves and leave all fields free of garbage and water bottles at the end of practices and games – it is important to keep our parks clean. Recycling bins & trash bins have been placed in our parks so please make an announcement to coaches to ensure that all water bottles, soda cans, etc. get placed in the appropriate bins.” – Pamela Gery, Director
While the Coaches will be reminding all of the players to pick up after themselves, I would ask that all parents and guardians periodically reinforce this with your sons and daughters.
Also, Public Works has put in a significant amount of time and energy over the last few days to repair, fill and regrade the parking area at the Mill Road field. When pulling in and out of the parking area, please keep in mind that the stone lot can be damaged very easily so I would ask that you move around the lot in your vehicle very slowly.
Thank you all in advance for helping to keep our fields clean and free from trash and debris. This helps maintain a clean and safe playing environment for your sons and daughters. Please remember, using the fields in town is a privilege not a right!
North Branford Youth Football & Cheer (NBYFC) has extended invitation to players in our program to check out the BreakOut Athlete training facility in North Branford.

Please join me in congratulating two of our current youth lacrosse players for being selected, by their teachers and administrators, to receive a major award by the North Branford Public School district. Braeden LeBeau, 5th Grader at TVES and current Girls Junior player and Jessie Kilburn, 8th Grader at NBIS and current Girls Senior player were chosen to receive the 2015 SCASA Superintendent's Award.
Braeden and Jessie received their awards on Friday in Hamden, CT at the SCASA Superintendent/Student Awards Luncheon. The Superintendent's Award was awarded to Braeden & Jessie in recognition of their community service, academic achievement and leadership in the school community.
Braeden and Jessie were two of six award recipients in the North Branford School District. (Two each from TVES, NBIS & NB High) We congratulate all of the award winners and especially our own Braeden and Jessie for setting such a wonderful example on and more importantly off the field!
Congratulations we are all very proud of you both.
