UpdatedMonday January 4, 2021 byKen Alberti.

Happy New Year! We hope you and your family are healthy and enjoyed the holidays together. We also hope 2021 brings us all a return to normalcy and tackle football in Connecticut this fall.

The Guilford Youth Football and Cheerleading board is thrilled to announce our head coaches for the 2021 season. We want to thank all of the coaches below for leading their respective grades and continuing to help build a strong Guilford program.

The cheerleading program will determine specific head coach needs based on sign ups and team formation. Erica Janosko, Jennifer Labbadia-Colon, Brita Rayner Romano and Tina Messercola will continue to help lead the cheer program along with Alisha Rayner Romano.

The annual Super Bowl Breakfast, traditionally held on Super Bowl Sunday, is currently postponed. We will look to reschedule a league breakfast/recruitment event later this year when it is safe to do so.

In the meantime, be on the lookout for registration to open around February 1st. Given the continued uncertainty around what the summer/fall will look like in terms of sports we will once again offer the Register Now, Pay Later option for families to select during the registration process.

If you have any questions about a specific team/grade, please contact the appropriate coach using the email listed above. Congratulations again to all of our head coaches.

Thank you and Happy New Year!
