Norton Youth Football & Cheer

Norton Black Knights

Norton Youth Football & Cheer, Inc. is a youth football and cheer organization established to promote the wholesome development of youth participants through their association with instructors, coaches, supervisors, and managers (“adult leaders”) in the sport of football and cheer. Rules and regulations are established to ensure the youth participants play in an atmosphere of safety with a competitive balance between teams. The emphasis will be on learning, playing, and enjoying the sport while instilling high moral standards by stressing the importance of academic achievement and community involvement. The mission of NYFC is to give back to the community by helping children become leaders and teammates. NYFC adult leaders will cultivate confidence and a sense of self-worth in the youth participants that will extend beyond the field and into the school, family and community. Sportsmanship, teamwork, honesty, responsibility and self-discipline are among the traits needed by youngsters to face the future with positive aspirations and confidence. If we teach them positive lessons, such as playing by the rules, our young athletes will learn to live by the rules. The adult leaders shall bear in mind that the molding of future men and women is of prime importance and the attainment of exceptional athletic skill, or the winning of games, is secondary.

We are proud members of the Blackstone Valley American Youth Football and Cheerleading Conference.
