Help Us Make A Difference
The Missouri Wolverines Football Club is part of the Missouri Wolverines Youth Organization INC. (A Missouri 501(c) 3 Non-Profit Corporation).
The Missouri Wolverines Youth Organization Inc. is a non-profit sports and educational organization created for the youth of the Kansas City Metropolitan area. The Missouri Wolverines Organization was created to provide an opportunity for young people to be involved in meaningful activities and to be taught the skills necessary to be successful not only in sports, but in school, and in the community. Our athletes will be taught the skills for successfully doing tasks, critical thinking, problem solving, and working with others. Communication skills, assertiveness, and the ability to protect themselves in today’s challenging world are other skills that will be introduced to members.
Our main focus of the Missouri Wolverines Youth Organization is its development of the student-athlete. This is aimed at young men and women who are serious about athletic commitment.
The goal of the program is to provide our players with an avenue through which they can perfect their athletic skills while allowing them to compete in an area on both a Local and Regional Level. This will also enable them to expand their opportunities for high school and at the same time, develop a strong sense of self-worth, sportsmanship, and success in academics and community service.
Along with opportunities for involvement and the skills to take advantage of the opportunities, children will be recognized and acknowledged for their efforts. Recognition will give young people the incentive to continue to contribute and reinforces them for their hard work.
Why We Need Your Help?
The Missouri Wolverines have 120 tackle football players, approximately 30 flag football players with 30 volunteer coaches which does not include the over 400 parents and relatives that become part of the program during the season. Our main goal is to provide the safest environment for our athletes to have fun while learning to be competitive and how to push themselves to be better, whether it be at football or in everyday life. However, this is not free and costs the organization a great deal each year. The Missouri Wolverines depend on sponsorship from the community to help meet budget costs. In return, the Missouri Wolverines are a charitable organization which means donations are tax-deductible which makes it even more lucrative to help the Wolverines.
Yearly expenses include sponsorship for under priviledged athletes, helping purchase necessary equipment for less fortunate athletes such as cleats, maintaining the Missouri Wolverines Indoor Turf Facility, the reconditioning of equipment issued to our athletes, insurance on the Wolverines equipment, and liability insurance on the organization, and the Annual Year-End Awards Banquet. These are just a few of the cost the Wolverines incur each year. However this year, the Wolverines are also trying to raise extra funds for NEW projects which we feel will take us another step closer to improving our program.

ALL OF OUR COACHES ARE VOLUNTEERS
What sets the Missouri Wolverines apart from other youth football programs is the level of involvement which is volunteered by a Missouri Wolverines coach. The Missouri Wolverines consider the coaches the foundation of the organization and they are the building blocks for which the program will either succeed or fail. The coaches meet regularly over the summer to have coaches meeting to prepare for the upcoming season. These men volunteer their time not to relive a dream through kids but to help young athletes become young men through a sport that touched them in their lives.
