Our volunteer coaches share a passion for kids, fun and football. Our program is designed to introduce families to the sport of football in a fun and instructive environment. While we teach the kids how to win, winning is secondary to the fun of playing organized team sports. We recognize that there is greatness in each of our student athletes and emphasize individual growth in a team atmosphere. Besides teaching football fundamentals, our focus is to simply promote athletic and academic excellence in all of our players.
