DSYSA and DSPW Join Forces!

 

Many of you may know or have heard that Dripping Springs Youth Sports Association (DSYSA) and Dripping Springs Pop Warner (DSPW) have reunited their football and cheer programs. 

The reunited programs will continue as a part of DSYSA.  After careful thought, DSYSA and our new football board decided to affiliate with Pop Warner Little Scholars, the world’s oldest and largest non-profit youth football and cheer program, and the only organized program to require and recognize academic achievement as a core program goal.  We are now part of the Hill Country Pop Warner Football League, which this year boasts more than 20 associations throughout central Texas.  We think that combining our organizations will and affiliating with Pop Warner will provide more and better competitive opportunities for participants at all levels.  Our Flag and 7v7 programs are not affected by these developments.

ATTEND A PARENT INFORMATIONAL MEETING:

You are invited to attend one of the parent information meetings we have scheduled.  We’ll do our best to answer any questions our parents have:

When:       April 30, 2019 and May 7, 2019

Time:         6:30 to 8:00 p.m.

Where:     Sycamore Springs Middle School Cafeteria

 

Pardon Our Dust:

We are working very hard to update both our Blue Sombrero and SportsEngine sites. Please excuse our inconsistencies and we revamp them both to meet our needs and consolidate information.

 

Volunteer Throughout the Year:

Pulling off a successful youth sports season is daunting.  It takes a lot of parents working together and volunteering where they can to help.  Please help us where and when you can throughout the year.  Volunteering feels good, and your children will appreciate it.

 

Check your helmets:

For the safety of participants, Pop Warner enforces the NOCSAE helmet recertification standards.  That means if your child’s helmet was manufactured in 2017 or before, it must be replaced or recertified.  Inside and on the back of every helmet should be a sticker that identifies when the helmet was manufactured.  There are several options for recertification and we can let you know how to get that done.  Reconditioning and recertification can cost between $45 and about $85, depending on what repairs are needed.

This year, DSYSA tackle football’s helmet color will be matte black, which is a change from the former white color.  Helmets can be painted and we are looking for a local vendor or body shop that might be able to offer that service.  Some reconditioners will repaint helmets as part of the process.  For older participants, who may have a whole team who already has white helmets, the team may be allowed to use white, so check with coaches.

 

JOIN IN THE FUN:

We want to have fun, where pulling together our kids learn and build on the fundamentals of teamwork; respect for themselves and others, strive to meet challenges, encourage each other to become our best and represent our town as one united DRIPPING SPRINGS TIGERS.
