After the meeting, the players received their Stanley Optimist Club trophies that resembled the team super bowl trophy.



Congratulations to all our Football Teams & Cheer Squads for making 2009 a memorable season. It's hard to believe that the season has past so quickly since August. The PW & JPW football teams had an excellent regular season, while the JPW's won the 2009 Pop Warner Super Bowl in Disney World. The PW & JPW cheerleaders combined as one team at locals and completed a solid routine as a non-advancing squad. A new website debuted in August and so far has received over 4200 hits. A special thank you goes out to all the coaches for dedicating your free time helping the kids. We'd also like to thank all the team moms and parents that volunteered at practices & games.  Go Big Blue!

The Stanley Optimist Club's Football & Cheerleading  Banquet has been set for Saturday February 27, 2010. The location & time hasn't been determined but will be posted soon.
