... to keep kids safe and active

Vision – The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Big Pines intends to encourage the youth of the communities to embrace healthy lifestyles through physical activity, exercise, play and proper nutrition and to carry these lifestyle choices with them through adulthood.
Mission – The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Big Pines will develop, test and field organized sports programs, after school physical activities, and physical and nutritional education programs for the purpose of creating an environment where children can find activities that they choose to participate in rather than other non-physical activities (Video games, TV, etc.).

In the past, we have had teams from Waskom, EF, Evangel, Calvary, Hallsville, Longview... pretty much all over. So if you want a team from your community how does it work?
Big Pines Sports are intended to be participatory first and competitive second. Our one sport that is more on the competitive side is 7v7. Teams are allowed to recruit your own team up to the 10 person maximum. The age groups are the same as listed above and are run like tournament teams; the coach is the point person. It is the coach's responsibility to get the team registered, to fill out the roster and get the roster turned in, and to pay the Club by the sign up date losted below.
|1||Identify a coach for each team. You will have some communities that have a K-2nd and a 5th-6th. A community is not required to have a team per age group, but one person cannot coach two teams due to conflicting schedules. All coaches must have a volunteer application sent in with their rosters.|
|2||Recruit your team of up to 10 players per roster. We strongly recommend 10 players due to vacations, kids getting tired, etc.|
|3||Fill out the Big Pines roster sheet and collect $50 per player to turn into to the Athletic Director by June 6. Teams not submitted by June 6 will not go on the schedule. Players may be added to rosters, as long as its not exceeding 10 players per team. We need this time to make the schedule as well as get the jerseys for each team. All rosters are final at the first game.|
|4||Teams are not required to provide proof of age to sign up, but if a player's eligibility is questioned by an opposing coach or Club official, then the birth certificate and most recent report card will have to be produced or the player is ineligible until they can be verified.|
