Nothing is more important to PTFC than the safety of all of our Titans. We want you as a concerned parent to make informed decisions about what sports you let your child play. We also want you to understand how serious PTFC takes your Titans safety with the investments, polices and procedures we have put in place to ensure a safe place for your child to play.
Why should I let my child play football?
Football teaches cooperation and team work, helps develop positive social skills and teaches respect for others. It helps build self-confidence, a positive self-image and self-worth. It enables a child to improve upon and develop a broad range of motor skills like throwing, catching, running, kicking, balance, agility and coordination. Because a large variety of skills and physical abilities are required on a football team, there is a position for every child to play.
Consider this from a parent of PTFC player sent to us via email at the end of the 2015 season.
My son has image issues that I was not prepared for. He hates his size and that he isn't 'skinny', he has low self-confidence and he is very insecure. Then he started football. Suddenly everything he didn't like about himself was an advantage. My favorite part of the season was getting to practice and seeing his team huddled around him chanting his name. He had just won some drill and I think he felt like a hero. He walked out of that practice glowing. He hasn't cried about his weight and he isn't ashamed of his size and strength anymore. What I have been trying to accomplish in 11 years you did in a few weeks. Please let the other coaches know how much I appreciate every encouraging word. There is no way to put a price tag on that.
This is why we love the game of football!
