STARS FOOTBALL EXTRA POINTS
MAY 1ST - MAY 5TH
TRUE NORTH: SCN FOOTBALL VALUE SYSTEM
Moving into the 2023 season, I wanted to freshen up our Northstar Mentality. Ten years ago, our 2013 class developed the Iron Star Code. Each point on the 5-pointed star is recognized to represent one belief that our program will be built on. Each point on the star is equal to the one before it. The values of Leadership, Investment, Selflessness, Accountability, and Preparation make up our North Star. In the center of the completed stars lies the T.E.A.M. For the past ten seasons and every moment in between, we have remained consistent in our steadfast belief in these five values. They are our "True North". These beliefs will be our compass in all we do as a program on and off the field. Much like the Northstar in maritime days, we will use our "True North" as the compass we will follow in the journey to the elite.
For this reason, we will be renaming our Iron Star Code as the St. Charles North "True North" mentality. I am proud of these words and what they mean. I have seen them transform lives, including my own. I hope you can share in our "True North" words and discuss these values with your son or daughter as much as possible. These behaviors win, and belief must exist in our journey to the elite. As we say, championship behaviors preceded championships. We must commit ourselves to these habits until they become our rituals.
I am passionate about these ideologies. I have spent the past ten years working relentlessly to develop this program and the people who are a part of it. While teaching is my job, coaching is my calling. I want to make this program the best high school athletics program in Illinois. I do not say this to toot my own horn; I am sharing this with you to provide insight into what I envision this program can be. The bottom line is that this program is significant to me, as are all of you. I cannot wait to take on the journey of this coming season.

Vision: Connect the community through the game of football

Message from Coach Pomazak
Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to enjoy the prom. I always find this evening to be a special moment. Everyone is dressed up, and our kids act so mature. It is as if they move one step closer to adulthood right before our eyes. At the event, I was humbled to have each player come up and shake my hand. We even took a picture together. It is in these moments that I think back to these men when they were in 5th and 6th grade. It seems like yesterday, and honestly brings a tear to my eye. I know it sounds cliche, but I genuinely love these kids. For the past ten years, I have put everything I have into making this program something our community can be proud of. For better or worse, it has shaped all of my family's time living in this area. I say all of this because, as we move into this next chapter of SCN Football, I need your help. I alone cannot build this program into all it can be. I need you to help carry the MVP. Please take the time to read through the entire newsletter, and in areas that you believe you can help, please reach out and do so. This is our year, I believe it!

During this time, players will meet with our academic support team to review missing assignments and develop a plan to raise their grades. Players will also have 1 hour of uninterrupted work time. Emails will be sent out to parents and players prior. Additionally, all players can walk in and have a silent study during this time.
Coach Pomazak is currently scheduling one on one meetings with any players in need of support. Meetings can happen during the day. Please email Coach to schedule an appointment.

STARS 7'S Continuing to build
UPDATE: Our Dad Coaches and players continue to put in great work and preparation. The goal of the league is to develop players at all levels. The wins are not the goal, period. Players' use depends on needs for the week and overall development playing time. The goal will always be to focus on the player and their developmental needs. I have been extremely pleased with all aspects of this league. Continued success to our Stars 7's
