North County Youth Football & Cheer


It is the mission of the North County Youth Football, Del Norte Nighthawks to provide a safe and positive environment to teach the fundamentals of the sports of football and cheer.
In doing so, the Association and its members will instill in each participant the principles of dedication, hard work, community, honesty, scholastic achievement, teamwork and sportsmanship.


The North County Youth Football & Cheer program was formed to achieve the following:

-Inspire youth in grades K-12, regardless of race, creed or national origin to practice the ideas of scholarship, sportsmanship and physical fitness
-Familiarize all players with the fundamentals of football or cheerleading
-Provide an opportunity to ALL of our community to participate in a supervised, organized and safety-oriented manner
-Keep the welfare of participants free from any adult ambition and personal glory.

Our programs teach children fundamental values, skills and knowledge that children will use throughout their lives.

NCYFC is committed to promoting the importance of education and scholastic achievement.  The little scholars program encourages and requires participants to perform well in school and practice leadership skills both in the classroom and on the field.  

We train all our coaches to use 3 dimensional coaching; fundamentals, psychology & heart are the three components.  

Most leagues offer payment plans leading up to the start of the season, ours however can extended into the season.  We understand that both football & cheer can be expensive so we want to make it as easy as possible for families with a tight budget.
