FLEMINGTON, NJ – The Flemington Falcons are celebrating their 50 anniversary of providing youth football and cheerleading opportunities to Hunterdon kids.
The Falcons are part of the Pop Warner Little Scholars Organization, and offer programs for children age 5 to 15. Player development focuses on the field and in classroom.
Every year, the Falcons serve more than 200 families who live primarily in the Hunterdon Central High School sending district, which includes Delaware Township, East Amwell, Flemington, Raritan Township and Readington.
To celebrate the organization’s 50th Anniversary, the Falcons are organizing a number of events to highlight the Falcons in the community, including plans for an expanded Homecoming Weekend in October.
For 2017, the Falcons have launched a new website that offers online registration. Visit the site for more information; teams are forming now for the 2017 season.
In December, the Flemington Falcons Cheer Program, led by Head Cheer Commissioner Renee Brandt, had three teams representing the Falcons at the Pop Warner Little Scholars Nationals Competition in Orlando. Its Junior Pee Wee Team was named National Champion with Pee Wee and Varsity teams placing second and third respectfully in their divisions.
The Nationals competition brings together Pop Warner Cheer teams from around the country. Falcons Cheer is a primary feeder program for cheerleaders joining the cheer teams at high school. Many former Falcons cheered on the National Champion Teams at Hunterdon Central this year.
For the 2017 Football Program, led by Head Football Commissioner Matt Call, the Falcons have announced a significant investment for the newest and most advanced football helmets for all Falcon athletes. The Falcons continually reinvest in the organization to help keep players using the best equipment available.
Like Falcons Cheer, the Falcons Football Program also serves as a primary feeder program into Hunterdon Central. Again, many of school’s football players had their start with the Flemington Falcons.
On Sunday, March 26, the Falcons kick off the season hosting a Football and Cheer Open House Recruitment Event at Hunterdon Central’s Field House from 2 to 4 p.m.
For the Open House, the Falcons are partnering with Lonnie Allgood of Dreams for Kids, Inc. Allgood, a former NFL player for the Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills, has a passion for mentoring and inspiring today’s youth through his non-profit organization.
Allgood’s message to “Educate, Motivate and Inspire” will be shared with the Falcons and guests. In addition, Allgood is bringing other professional athletes to join the Open House.
This is a great opportunity to meet the Falcons for new athletes and families considering football or cheer.
