We are proud to say that there are four girls playing and one young woman coaching for the Timberwolves in 2014. Three of the four are playing on Big 10 teams, a great accomplishment that shows that girls can play as well as boys. Our Gridiron Girls feature will highlight these five amazing young women.
Cierra (CC) Fleming has been a Timberwolf for four years, three in tackle football. Her first year she cheered and was tackling boys from the sidelines and expressing an interest in playing football. Her parents were reluctant at first, but agreed because of the valuable life lessons to be learned playing team sports. She has played a number of positions in those three years - tight end, running back, defensive end and middle linebacker. CC plays for the Big 10 Featherweight Gold team in 2014.
The first two weekends of fall lacrosse were a success; after the players knocked the rust off their sticks they came together and played as if they never missed a day. Our new players shined even more so, picking the game up quickly and fitting right in. We continue to concentrate on growing the athletes into well rounded lacrosse players by rotating them thru new positions and increasing their "Lax IQ".
A BIG note for the spring of 2015; the Timberwolves Lacrosse players have been invited to play an exhibition game at half time of the 2013 & 2014 National Champion Duke Blue Devils vs the Marquette Golden Eagles in Milwaukee on Apr 18! The finer details are being worked out and those will be released as soon as they are available.

Timberwolves' Season Sponsors
Please patronize our awesome sponsors:
Why Do We Need Volunteers?
The Lake Villa Timberwolves are a Not for Profit Corporation. As such, the volunteers are the backbone of the organization without whom we would cease to exist. For instance, in order to host home games our organization is completely dependent on parents and friends of the organization volunteering. For every home game we are required to have a chain gang, score keeper, concessions and field marshal. We can’t have concessions without concessions volunteers, so please sign up and work your shifts in the concession stand. We appreciate it!
To Dave Yuknis and Joe Lapera for helping to reduce the bee problem at the game field.
Pets at the Park
Unfortunately, the Lake Villa Township Park Ordinance prohibits bringing "any animals into any Park." Please keep your pets at home.
Where does all of that fundraising money go? We know that we ask a lot of our Timberwolves family members and we appreciate all of the time and money that families give to the program. We have gotten a lot of questions this year about fundraising, the cookie dough in particular. Most of the cookie dough questions are about why cookie dough and where does the money go? Why Cookie Dough? Over the years, the Timberwolves Board of Directors has looked at a number of fundraising alternatives and none of them have compared to cookie dough in either the amount of money they raise or the value they give to those who purchase the product. We have looked at products sold by a variety of similar organizations and cookie dough was the better option than all of the others except Girl Scout Cookies and no product could have the brand value of Girl Scout Cookies. Where does the money that we raise go? Cookie dough revenue helps to cover overhead costs incurred by the Timberwolves organization such as registration expenses (signs, shirts, flyers, etc.), awards, yearbooks, paving the parking lot, independent audits and insurance. This allows us to focus registration revenue from each sport on that sport.
