Glenville Mavericks INC
The Glenville Mavericks (the “Mavericks”) was organized in 2010 for educational purposes in order to teach children the game of American football. The Mavericks accept any child living in southwestern CT that is interested in playing football. We start with the fundamentals of the game: how to throw, catch and kick a football, and how to tackle and block so as to promote safety for both the player and their opponents. Once they learn the fundamentals, children are trained on the advanced aspects of the game such as strategy. We believe by learning the game, a child not only becomes a better football player but also a better person because they are instilled with the concepts of sportsmanship, values, teamwork, respect, dedication, commitment and responsibility.
