Mission, Goals and Objectives
Believing that youth represent our community’s future, The Waianae Bulldogs Association’s goal is to help the youth including the economically and socially disadvantaged, fulfill their desire to play football and provide academic support. Our coaching and volunteer staff are trained and certified to provide our youth with the best possible experience.
Our future objectives include collaborating with the Department of Education Athletic Program in our community (Waianae High School) and align philosophies that will assist in preparing our participants for high school level competition.
Another objective of ours is to establish a tutoring program for our participants who fall below academic standards so that they can participate in high school athletics and achieve their desired goals.
In summary, our vision is to provide an avenue that will propel our youth to be productive citizens in our community and become role models for those to follow.
Making it Fun
This is the primary objective and cornerstone of the entire philosophy. Regardless of whether it’s a game or a practice, football at the youth level should always be fun. This requires a little creativity and we have adopted a few fun methods throughout all aspects of our program. We incorporate games and low-key competitions to teach fundamentals at the same time running traditional drills.
All Have the Opportunity to Play
Football at the youth level should be an inclusive experience. It is never fun at any level of play to sit and watch others participate, anticipating the opportunity to play if the situation arises. The youth level of football should be an equal learning experience for everyone, whether it’s a game or a practice. We make every effort for all participants to play. It is about serving the youth and teaching life skills in a fun way through the sport of football. We also believe that parents have invested in their children and deserve a sense of satisfaction about their children’s learning experience.
