President's Message

The La Plata Blue Knights (LPBK) Football & Cheerleading organization would like to welcome everyone to the 2017 Football & Cheerleading season. As always, we appreciate all of your support in making LPBK the premier youth sports organization in Maryland. I have been involved with LPBK for 8 years, I bleed LPBK blue. As your President, my ultimate goal is to ensure that LPBK provides a safe, enjoyable, but competitive atmosphere for our children.

This BOD is
a very energetic group, with great ideas, and only has the best interest of our children at heart. I’d first like to welcome our new BOD members; Clyde Edwards (Equipment Coordinator), and Christine Saulter (Fundraiser Coordinator).  Even with the dedicated BOD members giving 100%, the BOD cannot do it alone. LPBK is a community organization and with that said we’re going to need everyone’s best efforts. LPBK is seeking the support of local businesses to donate money, services, and our LPBK families to donate their time like never before, to help make LPBK the best it can be.

LPBK is currently seeking Football and Cheerleading Coaches for the 2017 season. If you are interested in coaching or know anyone who is interesting in coaching, go to our website ( and under “About Us” select “Forms & Application”, and fill out a coach’s application.

Please check our website as often as possible because there is a wealth of information there and it serves as one of our primary forms of communication to our members. Please don’t forget to check out the "Calendar", periodically so you can plan your summer vacation around LPBK events. As pre-registration opens, please keep in mind that all new players (that wasn't  registered with our organization last season), will be required to provide an original or certified copy of your child’s birth certificate.   This is required in order for your child to play in this upcoming 2017 football season.

As always, your support is what makes LPBK successful. View the "Calendar" on our website ( and mark the fundraising events on your personal calendar, and invite all your family and friends to attend. All proceeds are given back to the organization which gives us the ability to enhance the kid’s experience.

Again, the success of the La Plata Blue Knights is directly attributed to the dedication, professionalism, and pride displayed by our volunteer coaches, volunteer parents, the support of our members (you), and the individuals on the Board of Directors. The exemplary efforts of the entire Blue Knight Family working together for the welfare of our children is indicative of what the word “Community” is all about. Thank you all so much!!! Once again I am PROUD to represent LPBK as your President.
