Welcome to Drexel Hill Raiders

The Drexel Hill Raiders is an all VOLUNTEER organization!!

 

FOOTBALL/FIELD CHEER SEASON

We have recieved the final decision from Bert bell about the upcoming season. After months of trying to find different solutions and options to make it possible for our teams to play we have all come to the conclusion that in no way is it worth the risk of directors, coaches, players and spectators health and safety. While we as a board are sad to have to forgo this season it is the best decision for all the organizations. So please know that we are still RAIDER NATION and will still continue to do our best to get back on track whenever we can, and sports are allowed.

Below is the letter from Bert Bell

BERT BELL MEMORIAL FOOTBALL AND CHEERLEADING LEAGUE

Dear Parents and Participants of Bert Bell Memorial Football and Cheerleading League,

After reviewing the information from the CDC and state government surrounding the current COVID-19 crisis, the Bert Bell Board of Executives feels it is in the best interest of the children of our league to cancel the 2020 Football and Cheerleading season. We have considered a lot of options and did extensive research in making this decision, including listening to our coaches and surrounding organizations around us, the CDC and PIAA, and keeping the governor’s ever-changing guidelines in hand. We discussed numerous scenarios and even developed our own set of safety guidelines for the upcoming season.

Unfortunately, we felt in the long term there was no way to protect against the COVID-19 and the risk outweighed the benefits of having a season. The ultimate deciding factor was keeping our kids safe and allowing them the opportunity to play in the year 2021. Hopefully, we will have more information to better protect what is most important to us. Cases have started to show up in our surrounding counties making the potential for our league to get hit with this virus. This time off will allow us as an organization to revise our safety guidelines and adapt to the everyday changes that come down from the PA government.

We would like you, as the parents, to pass on suggestions to us to help make for a safer environment for your child to participate in the future. Any questions or concerns can be directed to the Executive Board through our website at www.bertbell.net.

Thank you,

Billy Mayo, Commissioner

Bert Bell Memorial Football and Cheerleading Conference

 

Our Philosophy


We believe, at Drexel Hill Raiders, every child should have the opportunity to participate in athletics. The young people who participate in the Raiders' program should enthusiastically be encouraged by parents and coaches. It is our main goal at this stage of each child's career to expose them to all sports, and let them decide in which sport (s) they receive the greatest physical and psychological gratification.

Sports are an integral part of the education program and must contribute to the development of well-rounded children capable of assuming their place in society. The Association will endeavor to provide the most highly qualified, ethical coaches that display mature leadership in order to develop in their athletes the following qualities: SPORTSMANSHIP, CHARACTER, STRENGTH, HONESTY, PERSEVERANCE, DESIRE AND POSITIVE ATTITUDES.

Although each contest our athletes participate in is not a "life or death" matter, each coach should continually strive to develop a philosophy of "trying one's best" in each of their athletes. The goal of self-actualization gained by facing a challenge and relying upon oneself to carry the task through to the end is a foundation, which our athletes can rely upon in all endeavors of life.  A Great Place to Play and Learn
