The safety of our staff, kids and fans is very important to us. Each game is required to have a police/peace officer on site during all games. We also observe a "Zero Tolerance" rule against all disruptive behavior at our games and events.
Are Parents allowed to coach?
We always welcome parent participation. Lyndon Lightning Football & Cheer has a Football Committee that meets with any incoming parents that may have an interest in coaching or serving as committee members or assist with the program. Ultimate Coaching decisions are made by the President and Vice President of Football Operations and Cheer Coordinator.
