Are you looking for a youth tackle football program in the Lakewood, University Place, Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) area where your child will learn not only the fundamentals of football but also the values of Commitment, Honor, Responsibility, Initiative, Service, & Truth? Then you have found the right program. We at Paladin Youth Football are committed to teaching the youth of our community about the benefits of football that go far beyond the playing field. Our core values include Academic Excellence, Sportsmanship, and Community Service.
Founded in 2015 by a group of caring, dedicated young professional men and women in the community, PYF is an organization dedicated to so much more than football fundamentals. Our coaches are all fully committed to the development of the whole child and the benefits of football that go far beyond the playing field.
In our program, every child gets considerable playing time. Though we are a competitive team in a competitive league, we are not an “elite” or “select” team, so there are no tryouts. One of our goals is to give every child and family such a great experience that we have a greater than 90% retention of our players from year to year. We limit each of our teams to 25 players per team in order to help ensure considerable playing time for each and every athlete.
The cost of participation is among the lowest in the area. Every player is issued shoulder pads, a helmet (which has been reconditioned and re-certified every year), a seven-pad girdle, a mouth piece, practice pants and jersey, game pants, and a game jersey (which the player keeps at the end of the season).
Thanks to the time and talents of our Cheer Director we now offering Paladin Youth Cheer! This program is open to all youth ages 6-14. The registration is one of the least expensive in the area, and it covers all costs including uniforms, pom-poms, cheer shoes, and socks!
