About Cobras Football
The Cobras program teaches life lessons including teamwork, discipline, perseverance, goal setting, and respect for all. Greater Hazelwood Youth Sports and Mentoring Organization (GHYSMO) believes sportsmanship, honesty, responsibility and self-discipline are among the traits needed to face the future with positive aspirations and confidence.
The official season ends in November with a recognition event for families held in February of the following year.
GHYSMO has built relationships with local schools so progress of participants can be monitored. Participants are held to a high standard for behavior in school and in the community, including maintaining a minimum GPA in school and meeting behavior standards. Players are not be allowed to play in games if these standards are not met, these include positive participation, attendance, and respectful community conduct.
Robert Bailey, Football Athletic Coordinator, oversees and directs the coaches to ensure that they are prepared to mentor and teach the fundamentals of the sport. There will also be an Athletic Coordinator for Cheerleaders, to ensure the coaches are fully prepared to teach the basics effectively.
