Hello everyone,

A lot has happened with Westfield Youth Football, Inc. (Pioneer Thunder) since the end of the 2016 football season!  Many of you are aware that we took a very hard look at our finances, at how much we charge to participate in our programs, and at our current and projected expenses--especially our anticipated tackle football related equipment costs, helmets in particular.  The reality was that we were not charging nearly enough to participate in our tackle football program, and tha...

Hello Thunder Family!  I'm sending this message out to highlight something special in our community...The evolution of football.  Our youth program saw many positive changes last year, and there are many more to come as we are continuously looking to improve our program and to keep our minds open to different ways of doing things.  We don't believe in ever uttering the phrase, "...but we've always done it that way." 

We only had two females play football last year.  They were top...

Greetings Thunder Family!

I've got some exciting news to share with all of you...are you ready?!

The Green Bay Packers will be playing the Cleveland Browns in a pre-season game at Lambeau Field on August 12th (7 p,m. kickoff).  For the second year in a row the Packers have invited us to Lambeau and have provided free tickets for our players, coaches, and guests!  Pretty cool, right?!  BUT WAIT, that's not all! 

In addition to just watching the game, both our Pee-Wee and Junior Pee-...

Hello #THUNDERFAMILY! We have a BIG announcement to make! Please take two minutes to read this post, and then take a minute-and-a-half to watch the video...the surprise is revealed at the end!

The 2015 season brought with it many positive and exciting changes to our program, and a focus on improving the overall "experience" for athletes, parents, and fans. Some of those changes included the adoption of USA Football's Heads Up Football Program, recruiting and developing moms/women as football coac...

All six of the current Thunder football coaches attended the 2016 Green Bay Packers Coaching School last Sunday, and were surprised to learn that our organization was selected to receive a $500 equipment grant from the Green Bay Packers!

The coaching school, offered for free to youth football organizations, provided an action-packed day of learning, participation, and networking for over 200 football coaches from multiple states.  The first half of the day was spent in the Lambeau Field Legends C...

Hello everyone!  At the regular board meeting on May 31, 2016, the board of directors voted to postpone launching our new flag football program until 2017, with an anticipated start date of early July 2017.  This decision was made based in part on the recommendation of the Flag Football Committee.  The committee and board felt it unwise to attempt to launch such an important new program in a hurried manner; there simply would not be enough time to properly prepare the program, recruit and certif...
