NC Football

PURPOSE

The North County Youth Football program was formed to:
-Inspire youth, 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
-Provide an opportunity to ALL of our community to participate in a supervised, organized and safety-oriented manner, and;
-Keep the welfare of participants free from any adult ambition and personal glory.

Our programs teach fundamental values, skills and knowledge that children will use throughout their lives.  
NCYFC offers flag and tackle football and cheer programs for all children in grades ranging from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Our organization prides itself in the strong commitment to our youth and our community and we strive to deliver a positive experience for both players and families involved in our programs.  Our coaches teach the necessary skills and fundamentals of football.   They also instill in each player the discipline, drive, confidence and commitment that they can then apply to all things in life for a successful future.
