Similar to a high school football program. The Missouri Wolverines Youth Football Program has an athletic director who oversees the entire program and reports to the Missouri Wolverines Board of Directors. Each individual Head Coach for the Missouri Wolverines reports to our athletic director.
Aside from overseeing all the different teams and coaches, Tuso is responsible for the scheduling of games and purchasing of equipment. If you have interest in playing one of our teams or are a vendor interested in getting information to our organization. Please contact Jim Tuso directly at the Missouri Wolverines Office. We try to funnel all scheduling of games and purchasing of equipment through our Athletic Director so that we as an entire organization are on the same page.
If there are issues or concerns with any of our Missouri Wolverines teams or coaches, please contact Jim Tuso at the Missouri Wolverines office at 816-379-3692 or via email at [email protected]
Another huge advantage of having a former D1 athlete and high school coach as our athletic director, this allows the players in the Missouri Wolverines organization to learn from one of the top coaches in the area. Through our offseason training program which includes our speed and agility classes and football specific classes, Coach Tuso is able to work with each and every one of our athletes who attend our off-season classes. This is a truly special and unique opportunity for the Missouri Wolverines as normally you would only get access to Coach Tuso if your son played on one of his specific teams however through our offseason program he is able to work and prepare your son for the upcoming season. Coach Tuso has been running our Speed and Agility classes for 10 years now.
Aside from the Missouri Wolverines offseason program, Coach Tuso is the camp director for one of the largest youth football camps in the Kansas City Metro Area, the Greater Kansas City Youth Football Camp. This camp is highly recommended by the Missouri Wolverines as it allows campers to be coached by all the coaches in the Missouri Wolverines program including local High School coaches who assist at the camp.
