Why do you call Junior Jaguars Football participants Athletes?

 

Athletes play football.  Athletes also play other sports.  Athletes are athletic.  Athletes always prepare for and are well conditioned for the sport they are participating in.  Athletes follow proper nutrition guidelines for their sport(s) and engage in proper strength training exercises under the direct supervision of their parent/guardian or certified coach(es) and trainer(s).  Athletes seek out specialized training for their sport away from team practices, and actually acquire the skills and abilities necessary to play their sport better than their competition.

Athletes who wish to participate in Junior Jaguars Tackle Football must be willing and able to fully participate in tackle football practices with the required equipment, and possibly play in unweighted tackle football games.  Athletes must be registered with both the Junior Jaguars Football organization and the league in which Junior Jaguars Football is a member of.  Registrations are not complete until all fees are paid in full.  Athletes may NOT, under any circumstances participate in practices or games prior to completing and paying for Junior Jaguars Football registration.
