WHAT’S YOUR WHY

It was a great week for Northstar football. So many young men and women working to change your best.  Whether it’s in a winter sport or during our performance training if you are a Star you are working to be your best. The word of the week was “why” as in what is your why? In our program we ask a lot of our players, parents and staff. Our goal is to provide an elite experience to everyone we come into contact with. For the staff that is the work we put in for our players to be at their best. For the parents it is the experience we give the visiting fans, staff and support for our children. For the players it is giving the highest caliber football every friday night to the paying crowd and then repeating that experience Monday- Friday in class. Bottom line it is hard to be elite, really hard. It requires an inner strength and motivation that is personal to each player, parent and coach. That motivation is what we call your “WHY”. 

  • Why do you play the game of football
  • Why do  you invest so much time to the program? 
  • Why does it matter to you?

It is important in our program to be able to answer these questions clearly.  We are a selfless program but it is okay to have your own motivations. Play the game for someone/something but with in the culture of our program. 

A highlight of the week came on Wednesday when we launched our Real World Connects program. 1 day each month we will bring in a community member who exemplifies the program mission to speak to our players. This month, Ed French was our guest. His time with the program was impactful some of my takeaways. 

  • Hold yourself to a higher standard 
  • No bad apples 
  • High school football will shape you for the future … if you let it. 
  • If everyone gets 10% better this year, what are you going to do in order to get 12% – 15% better in order to stay the best? 

We appreciate Mr. French’s time with us. The opportunity to speak is open to those who may be interested if you know of anyone who might be of benefit please contact me (robert.pomazak@d303.org

Finally, supporting the tenant of selflessness. Boosters  will be hosting the 7th annual Lift A Thon Saturday February 1st from 8am – 2pm. This fundraiser is one of a kind and has allowed boosters  to put over 75k dollars into the weight room over the past 7 years . Your son/daughter will have the paper work shared with them on google classroom Monday. The event is a ton of fun and 100% of proceeds go directly into room enhancements. A reminder that this is NOT an SCN FB fundraiser. All at athletes can join. Donations can be made by gofundme or at the event.

We are currently in quarter 1 of our 4 quarter program. During these winter months the goal is for our off season participants to work diligently to achieve their physical, tactical goals. Time in the weight room and film room support the preparation tenant. Front loading the work will make it easier later on.

MISSION/VISION/BELIEFS 

Welcome back and I hope your family had an enjoyable winter break. It’s so important to take time away from it all, stepping off the treadmill so to speak. It offers us a much needed respite from the day to day grind. My family and I spent our break in Maui and it was all it was cracked up to be. My favorite memories are not the grand views or amazing weather but more so the little moments with my daughters and wife. It’s the casual conversation or shared laugh that cannot be taken for granted. 

As we move into 2020, one of my goals is to increase our connection as a program. It’s imperative that we all share in the mission. I will be putting out a weekly newsletter that will serve as a one stop shop for all football activities each week. We will also take time to highlight our program philosophy, mission and vision and make it one we all can invest in. 

Our football family has faced many adversities this year. The response was nothing less than amazing. Countless parents and players made a positive impact during some difficult times. Thank you! 

My personal mission and the overall mission of this program is to provide every player and family an elite experience. Our philosophy is “People over Players”, the goal is

to provide an experience that will not only build our players for the game of football but also in life. In our Iron Star belief system selflessness is 1 of 5 core tenants. We define it simply as Forget About Me I Love You (F.A.M.I.L.Y). We ask every member of the program to put their teammates needs before their own. We are servant leaders and being selfless is the cornerstone of this philosophy. As a football community it is essential that we provide our kids with a consistent message. When parents, staff and players each share a common purpose and belief it can become a truly special moment.
