I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year’s. I’m excited to begin serving your families and the entire organization this season as President. Thank you to the players, families and coaches that were able to complete the various end of year surveys. Your feedback is invaluable to ensure that TCW stays true to its Mission and is able to develop our athletes into Godly men and women. As a board we have already begun to address some of the feedback and the coaches will do the same at their Coaches Retreat later this month.
Last year was both a success and a year of continued opportunities to get better. On the fields and on the mats there is no doubt how competitive our football and cheer teams are. Though we intend to remain competitive in all we do we must focus and become “centered” on what’s most important for this organization and for our athletes and families. It’s as simple, yet also as challenging as looking at the most important part of our name. Or looking at the “center” if you must.
Tomball CHRISTIAN Warriors.
With the speed at which we are growing, continued Covid concerns, and transitions we know there will be challenges. We will continue to navigate those as best we can by always focusing on our why, the Kids and the goals of the organization. With the growth of our program we’re looking at a full season for all 3 of our football teams and as our cheer program continues to develop additional competitive opportunities may arise. This means the need for volunteers will continue to grow for our organization. We must take care of each other and we must continue to grow our organization with Christian families needing what we have to offer.
NEW FAMILY INFORMATIONAL MEETINGS/REGISTRATION
Our new family informational meetings are quickly approaching as is Registration for the new season. Please save and share the dates. We are confirming the location for the second meeting as well as the two registration meetings. We’ll work on updating the website and social media by the end of this week as well.
New Family Information Meeting 1 – Thur Jan 27th 7pm : Salem Lutheran Church in the Community Cafe
New Family Information Meeting 2 – Tue Feb. 8th 7pm : Location TBD

Cheer Registration Meeting – Tue Mar 1st 7pm: Location TBD (PS: We are having an open mascot tryout this year. This is open to either a male or female athlete. More information will be provided at the informational meeting)
It is important that ALL families both new and returning complete at minimum their “Registration” fees and paperwork at the registration meetings in February. This will ensure that we can have any uniforms, player packs, and equipment ordered and delivered in time for Spring Ball without incurring additional fees and costs.
